There it is - our Earth, our world.

0:00:400:00:45

A comfy place, and I'm sure if others were to come here,

0:00:450:00:48

we'd make t a comfy place for them, too.

0:00:480:00:52

And I'm also sure that if we were to venture off into the dark distance

0:00:520:00:56

of outer space, we would find other places just as welcoming as ours.

0:00:560:01:01

Oh, look - there's a nest.

0:01:010:01:04

The Iron Chicken's comfy nest.

0:01:040:01:07

Let's go and take a look.

0:01:070:01:09

IRON CHICKEN SNORES

0:01:090:01:11

The Iron Chicken's fast asleep.

0:01:110:01:13

Ah, who's this?

0:01:150:01:17

A visitor?

0:01:170:01:19

It looks like a bird. A bird made of...tin?

0:01:200:01:24

CLANGING

0:01:270:01:28

IRON CHICKEN EXCLAIMS

0:01:350:01:38

Oh! That's given the Iron Chicken a bit of a surprise.

0:01:380:01:41

She wants to know what's going on.

0:01:440:01:47

But she's scared the tin bird away.

0:01:470:01:50

The tin bird's gone down to the Clangers' planet.

0:01:560:02:00

CLANGING Hmm... She's rather noisy.

0:02:000:02:03

And she's woken Major Clanger up.

0:02:070:02:09

Major's not happy. Not happy at all.

0:02:110:02:15

He's off to see what's going on.

0:02:150:02:17

Major's asking the tin bird to stop pecking the metal lid.

0:02:260:02:30

CLANGING

0:02:300:02:32

Oops! She's fallen down the hole...

0:02:400:02:43

..and has slipped into the Clangers' living cave.

0:02:450:02:48

She seems to be looking for something.

0:02:520:02:55

Oh, I'm not sure that's a good idea.

0:03:100:03:13

SOUP DRAGON EXCLAIMS

0:03:140:03:16

No, the Soup Dragon's not happy.

0:03:240:03:27

What IS the tin bird doing with the copper leaves?

0:03:270:03:31

Oh! The Soup Dragon's frightened her away.

0:03:310:03:34

Oh, dear. She's pecking again.

0:03:410:03:44

And Major is telling her off again!

0:03:490:03:52

Oh! Major's frightened her away now.

0:03:520:03:55

Yes, Tiny Clanger's right.

0:04:090:04:11

Major shouldn't talk to visitors like that.

0:04:110:04:13

He should welcome them and see if they need help.

0:04:130:04:17

Small and Tiny are going off to see if the tin bird is OK.

0:04:200:04:24

CLANGING

0:04:270:04:28

What IS that tin bird up to?

0:04:300:04:32

THEY LAUGH

0:04:320:04:34

She's sitting on the metal lid. That's a funny thing to do!

0:04:340:04:39

Oh, even Tiny and Small laughing has frightened her off.

0:04:390:04:43

Yes, it's probably best to leave her be.

0:04:430:04:46

The Soup Dragon is telling Major about the tin bird pulling

0:04:480:04:52

the leaves off the copper trees.

0:04:520:04:54

Tiny and Small think that perhaps the tin bird wants to make a nest.

0:04:580:05:03

That's why she was collecting copper leaves and trying to sit on a lid.

0:05:030:05:08

They want to help her.

0:05:090:05:11

What would make a nice nest?

0:05:110:05:13

Small's had an idea.

0:05:150:05:17

Oh! A puffball. Yes, perhaps a puffball will make a good nest.

0:05:220:05:28

But then again, perhaps not.

0:05:300:05:32

She's even frightened by the puffball, poor thing.

0:05:320:05:37

Here comes Mother with some fresh clippings for the sky moos.

0:05:370:05:42

Clippings! Maybe clippings will do.

0:05:420:05:45

Mother's happy to let Tiny and Small have them.

0:05:500:05:53

There - a nice comfy nest of clippings.

0:06:010:06:05

MOOING

0:06:140:06:16

Oh! The sky moo doesn't like the tin bird sitting on her dinner.

0:06:180:06:22

Oh, well. What next?

0:06:240:06:27

Yes, the tin bird is a bit like the Iron Chicken,

0:06:280:06:33

and the Iron Chicken's nest is made out of...

0:06:330:06:37

junk! Yes, junk!

0:06:370:06:40

Ah, they know someone with LOTS of junk.

0:06:400:06:43

Major Clanger, of course.

0:06:460:06:48

Tiny and Small would like some of Major's spare junk

0:06:550:06:59

to make a nest for the tin bird.

0:06:590:07:02

ANd Major's happy for them to have some. He has more than enough.

0:07:040:07:09

CLATTERING

0:07:090:07:11

Major's wondering where the tin bird is.

0:07:230:07:26

Tiny tells Major the tin bird is hiding because she's scared.

0:07:270:07:32

Small says she's scared

0:07:360:07:38

because everyone keeps on frightening her away,

0:07:380:07:41

including Major.

0:07:410:07:42

Major understands. He must have seemed a bit scary to the tin bird,

0:07:450:07:50

and he says he's sorry.

0:07:500:07:52

Major's going to help out. He wants to make things right.

0:07:580:08:02

Oh, look. He's making a little trail of junk.

0:08:040:08:07

Now it's time to go and hide.

0:08:130:08:15

Oh! Major's plan is working really well.

0:08:250:08:29

The tin bird is picking up the bits of junk and following the trail...

0:08:300:08:36

all the way to the new nest.

0:08:360:08:38

Bingo! It's worked a treat.

0:08:400:08:43

IRON CHICKEN CLUCKS

0:08:440:08:47

Here's the Iron Chicken.

0:08:470:08:49

She's realised that it was the tin bird that she had scared off,

0:08:530:08:57

and she's come to say sorry.

0:08:570:08:59

That's right, Major. No-one should go near a nesting bird.

0:09:030:09:07

The Iron Chicken must stay with them.

0:09:070:09:09

The Iron Chicken wants to know what happens now.

0:09:110:09:14

Major says the tin bird is going to lay an egg.

0:09:180:09:22

Surely the Iron Chicken knows that!

0:09:220:09:24

IRON CHICKEN LAUGHS

0:09:240:09:26

TIN BIRD SQUAWKS

0:09:290:09:30

There it is! An egg.

0:09:350:09:39

Well, will you look at that?

0:09:390:09:41

It's hatching.

0:09:410:09:43

And there's the baby tin bird.

0:09:450:09:48

BABY TIN BIRD CHIRPS

0:09:480:09:50

The baby bird likes pecking, too! Just like its mum.

0:09:570:10:01

THEY LAUGH

0:10:010:10:03

Time to learn how to fly, baby bird.

0:10:050:10:08

There she goes - the tin bird with her new baby.

0:10:190:10:23

How wonderful to have a new baby,

0:10:270:10:30

and how wonderful to have it on such a kind, and welcoming,

0:10:300:10:34

and comfy place as the Clangers' planet.

0:10:340:10:38

A tin bird lands on the Clangers' planet. It explores the planet as if it is looking for something. Tiny and Small think it must want to build a nest, and decide to help.
