Planet Earth,

0:00:420:00:43

spinning around our sun.

0:00:430:00:45

With its wonderful machines and clever devices,

0:00:450:00:48

fixing and mending all kinds of problems.

0:00:480:00:52

And if we were to fly deep into outer space,

0:00:520:00:54

we may find other planets like our own,

0:00:540:00:57

where every now and again, there's a problem to sort out, too.

0:00:570:01:02

Ah, it's the Clangers' cleaning day.

0:01:150:01:17

Looks like Tiny and Small are really enjoying themselves.

0:01:170:01:22

Granny Clanger likes to clean from the comfort of her puffball chair.

0:01:240:01:28

Very sensible.

0:01:280:01:29

Yes, the living cave is sparkling clean.

0:01:320:01:35

Oh, spoke too soon, for a dust weave's on the ceiling.

0:01:370:01:41

Very unsightly.

0:01:410:01:42

Hmm... But how to reach up there?

0:01:530:01:56

Ah. Major has an idea.

0:02:020:02:05

HE BANGS RHYTHMICALLY

0:02:070:02:10

Very curious - and very noisy!

0:02:200:02:23

My word! Whatever is he wearing?

0:02:320:02:35

Major tells everyone not to worry. His invention is perfectly safe.

0:02:380:02:43

Oh, he's asking Small to press the button.

0:02:450:02:48

MACHINE WHIRS

0:02:570:02:59

Oh, I say!

0:03:050:03:06

Yes, be careful!

0:03:070:03:09

CLANG!

0:03:100:03:11

Major is very pleased with himself.

0:03:170:03:19

This is the first time the ceiling has ever been cleaned.

0:03:190:03:23

So, whilst Major cleans, Small and Tiny are off to get soup.

0:03:260:03:30

Tiny and Small suggest

0:03:460:03:47

the Soup Dragon come and see Major's new invention.

0:03:470:03:51

She won't believe her eyes!

0:03:510:03:53

CLANG!

0:03:550:03:56

Major seems to be getting to grips with his new device.

0:03:590:04:03

Tiny and Small were right.

0:04:190:04:21

That's a sight the Soup Dragon won't forget in a hurry.

0:04:210:04:25

Ah, soup is ready.

0:04:300:04:32

How strange. Maybe Major's not hungry.

0:04:360:04:39

Oh, dear! Major forgot to make a "down" button.

0:04:450:04:50

He's stuck bobbing around the ceiling!

0:04:500:04:53

He's very hungry indeed,

0:04:540:04:56

and desperately wants to come down to eat.

0:04:560:04:59

Oh, Small has an idea.

0:05:010:05:03

What's Small up to?

0:05:190:05:20

Any colour will do, Tiny.

0:05:260:05:29

Ah, she's chosen yellow. Lovely.

0:05:290:05:32

Granny thinks it might be cold up there.

0:05:460:05:49

Yes, Small is indeed very clever.

0:05:520:05:55

Dinner is served.

0:06:010:06:04

Major loves his soup and scarf,

0:06:140:06:16

but he really wishes he was eating with everyone else.

0:06:160:06:20

How can they get him down?

0:06:200:06:22

The Froglets are trying to reach Major.

0:06:310:06:33

A rescue party, perhaps?

0:06:330:06:35

Yes, you can do it!

0:06:380:06:39

Maybe third time lucky?

0:06:450:06:47

SHE LAUGHS

0:06:540:06:56

Major wasn't expecting that!

0:06:560:06:59

Yes, Granny. At least they tried.

0:07:010:07:03

Mother's had an idea. Is there anyone who could fly up there?

0:07:070:07:12

Hmm...

0:07:120:07:13

Tiny's calling for help.

0:07:220:07:23

IRON CHICKEN CLUCKS

0:07:250:07:27

The Iron Chicken is on her way.

0:07:270:07:29

Ah. Major may be stuck, but he's making himself useful.

0:07:350:07:39

He makes a terrific ceiling light.

0:07:420:07:44

Oh, no! That crack will need filling.

0:07:590:08:02

Rock putty - that should do the trick.

0:08:060:08:09

Yes, Tiny. Hopefully the Iron Chicken can help Major.

0:08:300:08:34

Hello. This plan might just work.

0:08:400:08:43

Interesting.

0:09:090:09:10

The harder they all pull down, the harder Major's backpack pulls up.

0:09:100:09:16

Small seems to have a plan now.

0:09:330:09:35

Oh, I see! They're to break Major's fall.

0:09:380:09:42

Small says it's safe to drop.

0:09:430:09:45

Phew! Major's safely down.

0:09:570:10:01

Back where he belongs.

0:10:010:10:02

But what of the backpack?

0:10:030:10:05

CLANGING

0:10:050:10:07

There goes Major's unruly invention.

0:10:190:10:22

Sometimes, solving a problem can be tricky,

0:10:230:10:26

but the Clangers worked together,

0:10:260:10:29

and sorted it out in the end.

0:10:300:10:32

And who knows? The backpack may help someone else,

0:10:320:10:36

out there, amongst the stars.

0:10:360:10:39

It's the Clangers' cleaning day. All the Clangers are doing a good job dusting but how will they reach all the dustweeds they can see on the ceiling of the living cave?
