Hiya, come on in. It's time for The Green Balloon Club.

0:01:020:01:06

HELLO!

0:01:060:01:08

Glad you could join us.

0:01:080:01:10

I'm here.

0:01:180:01:20

-Lily-Rose is wiggling today.

-No, I'm wagging.

0:01:200:01:24

-Wagging?

-I thought I'd say hello like Skipper today.

0:01:240:01:28

She always wags her tail to say hello.

0:01:280:01:31

I get it!

0:01:310:01:33

We're doing the doggy hello today.

0:01:330:01:36

Now my go.

0:01:370:01:39

I think I'll say hello in Skipper language today.

0:01:390:01:42

SQUEAKING

0:01:420:01:44

-LAUGHTER

-I'm here!

0:01:440:01:46

I'M HERE!

0:02:230:02:25

Everyone's present and correct.

0:02:250:02:27

Let's do The Green Balloon Club chant. YEAH!

0:02:270:02:31

DRUMBEAT

0:02:310:02:34

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds.

0:02:370:02:40

We love snails and slugs.

0:02:400:02:42

Large and small, we love them all and we never, ever step on bugs

0:02:420:02:47

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:02:470:02:50

Some of our members have been asking about the actions for the chant.

0:02:500:02:55

I thought I'd explain them so you can join in.

0:02:550:02:58

First of all we make rabbit ears,

0:02:580:03:01

for we love animals,

0:03:010:03:02

plants, and then we make bird wings for birds. Come on!

0:03:020:03:07

Join in with me.

0:03:070:03:08

We love animals, plants and birds.

0:03:080:03:11

Then we make a snail,

0:03:110:03:13

for we love snails and slugs.

0:03:130:03:16

So there's the body and there's the shell. So...

0:03:160:03:20

We love animals, plants and birds.

0:03:200:03:24

We love snails and slugs.

0:03:240:03:27

Large and small - so make yourself as tall as you can

0:03:270:03:31

and then as small as you can.

0:03:310:03:34

We love them all!

0:03:340:03:35

And we never, ever step on bugs

0:03:350:03:38

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club.

0:03:380:03:42

And that's the secret sign.

0:03:420:03:44

(Remember the secret sign!)

0:03:440:03:48

-Shall we do it all together?

-Yeah!

0:03:500:03:53

DRUMBEAT

0:03:530:03:57

We love animals, plants and birds.

0:03:570:04:00

We love snails and slugs.

0:04:000:04:03

Large and small, we love them all and we never, ever step on bugs

0:04:030:04:07

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:04:070:04:11

Well done. I'll see if we can get that up onto our website

0:04:110:04:15

so you can check it whenever you want.

0:04:150:04:18

Sky! Look! I've got a green star.

0:04:180:04:21

Oh, great! Did you find this week's Spot?

0:04:210:04:24

-Yes, it was an apple, and that's the apple tree.

-Fantastic!

0:04:240:04:28

-Did you draw that?

-Yes.

0:04:280:04:30

I love the lovely red apples you've got on there.

0:04:300:04:34

-You know the little pips inside?

-Yes.

-Can they grow into a big tree?

-Yes!

0:04:340:04:39

-That's good, because I've got some.

-Well, why not give it a go?

-Yeah!

0:04:390:04:45

CLOCK WHIRRS Special report! Special report!

0:04:450:04:48

-There's Jelly with her special report.

-Has she been finding apples?

0:04:480:04:53

Well, let's find out.

0:04:530:04:54

Special Reporter Jelly reporting to Green Balloon Club.

0:05:010:05:05

Oh, and these are my friends. Hello, Reuben, hello, Imogen,

0:05:050:05:10

-hello, Mummy Kim.

-Hello, Jelly.

-Hello, Jelly!

-Hello!

0:05:100:05:13

Where are you off to today?

0:05:130:05:15

-The apple orchard.

-The app...? What's an apple orchard?

0:05:150:05:20

-Come on, we'll show you!

-Oh!

0:05:200:05:22

Oh, wow! Look at all the apple trees!

0:05:230:05:26

Loads of apple trees make an apple orchard.

0:05:260:05:29

Oh, I see!

0:05:290:05:31

We've got different kinds here, Jelly. Some are cooking apples,

0:05:310:05:35

to make things like apple crumble or apple pie,

0:05:350:05:39

and some are eating apples

0:05:390:05:41

to eat or to make into apple juice.

0:05:410:05:44

Apple juice? Apple juice? I love apple juice!

0:05:440:05:48

Can we make some? Can we? Oh, yes, I would love that!

0:05:480:05:52

-Yes, but first we have to pick some apples.

-Oh, yes! Pick some apples!

0:05:520:05:57

-I can't reach. Can you lift me up?

-Yes.

0:05:570:06:01

Oh! I can't do it! It won't come off.

0:06:030:06:07

Probably not ripe for picking, then.

0:06:070:06:11

-Right. Well, how do you know when it's ready?

-Gently twist the apple.

0:06:110:06:15

If it comes away easily, you know it's ready to eat and will be juicy.

0:06:150:06:20

Oh! I'll have a go, then.

0:06:200:06:22

Yes! It's all about picking apples.

0:06:270:06:30

Aha!

0:06:330:06:36

Sometimes you have to stand on tippy-toes.

0:06:390:06:42

Sometimes you can stand on a bit of wood.

0:06:420:06:44

How many more?

0:06:470:06:49

I think we've got enough now.

0:06:490:06:51

-Oh! So many apples...

-Come on, Jelly, we're going this way.

0:07:000:07:05

Yes! Wait for me, wait for me...!

0:07:050:07:07

-Time to wash the apples now, Jelly.

-Ah, yes, OK.

0:07:110:07:15

Now I've got to chop them up.

0:07:150:07:18

OK.

0:07:180:07:20

-Get them all ready for the next bit.

-Chop, chop, chop!

0:07:200:07:24

JELLY GIGGLES

0:07:240:07:27

What's this big machine for, then?

0:07:300:07:33

This is for crushing the apples.

0:07:330:07:36

Crushing the apples? How does it work?

0:07:360:07:39

-You turn this, and then the crushers in there crush the apples.

-Oh, yes!

0:07:390:07:44

They're coming out all lumpy and bumpy. I'm not thirsty any more.

0:07:440:07:48

It's not ready yet, Jelly!

0:07:480:07:50

Oh, right!

0:07:500:07:52

So what do we do next?

0:07:520:07:54

We squeeze, and then the juice comes out of these two taps and down there.

0:07:540:08:00

Oh, look! It's coming, it's coming!

0:08:000:08:04

-The apple juice...

-Try it, Jelly!

-I'll get my cup.

0:08:040:08:07

Oh, it's lovely, isn't it?

0:08:130:08:16

Thank you very much for letting me come and press apples with you. Bye!

0:08:160:08:21

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:08:210:08:24

This is Special Reporter Jelly

0:08:250:08:28

in an apple orchard,

0:08:280:08:30

reporting for Green Balloon Club.

0:08:300:08:32

Back to you in the Green Balloon. Up and away!

0:08:320:08:36

Wow! Jelly found lots of apples.

0:08:450:08:48

Did she get lots of green stars?

0:08:480:08:51

I don't think so.

0:08:510:08:54

-What are you looking for?

-Something to plant my apple pips in.

0:08:540:08:59

Hmm.

0:08:590:09:00

-How about this?

-Yes, that'd be perfect!

0:09:000:09:04

It's got one, two, three,

0:09:040:09:08

four, five, six. Just right to plant my apple pips in.

0:09:080:09:13

And I've got something for you to put them in when you're watering it.

0:09:130:09:18

Thanks, Ant, that's great.

0:09:180:09:20

Now all we need is some compost.

0:09:210:09:24

Hello!

0:09:240:09:26

-I spy some Green Balloon Club members!

-Who is it?

0:09:260:09:30

-It's Melina and Naureen.

-BOTH: Hello!

0:09:300:09:33

Hello!

0:09:340:09:37

Today we're on a special mission to find deer in this park.

0:09:370:09:41

There are two types of deer - red deer and fallow deer.

0:09:410:09:45

Let's go and see what we can find.

0:09:450:09:48

The deer could be anywhere in the park.

0:09:480:09:52

We must be very quiet and stay close to the adults.

0:09:520:09:56

Look, I can see red deer. Can you see them too?

0:09:560:10:00

That one just stood up.

0:10:000:10:02

So we're really, really excited to see them,

0:10:020:10:07

but it's important not to scare them away.

0:10:070:10:11

They are wild animals and can be very dangerous

0:10:110:10:14

so we mustn't get too close or try and feed them.

0:10:140:10:17

The ones with the antlers are called stags. They are males.

0:10:170:10:22

I've seen the stag with his antlers.

0:10:220:10:24

-The antlers are made of bone.

-Look at how big and spiky they are.

0:10:240:10:29

They grow in spring and fall off in the winter.

0:10:290:10:32

The red deer can live for up to 18 years.

0:10:320:10:37

Look at those males fighting!

0:10:390:10:42

They look really strong.

0:10:420:10:44

The female red deer are called hinds.

0:10:460:10:50

She's much smaller than the male, isn't she?

0:10:500:10:53

They like to eat grass and shrubs.

0:10:530:10:57

There are some fallow deer.

0:10:570:10:59

-Look at how pretty they look.

-I love the red fur and white marks.

0:10:590:11:04

Well, we just spotted that some of the fallow deer

0:11:040:11:08

have been eating fresh grass,

0:11:080:11:11

and they look like they're happy eating,

0:11:110:11:14

cos they think it's very fresh and juicy.

0:11:140:11:17

There's the male fallow deer.

0:11:180:11:21

He has antlers too, but not as big as the red deer.

0:11:210:11:25

We're so lucky

0:11:280:11:31

-to see the deer.

-Time for us to go now.

0:11:310:11:34

BOTH: Bye!

0:11:340:11:35

They're so lucky to see deer. I wish I could see one.

0:11:420:11:46

-They're so beautiful.

-I find it amazing

0:11:460:11:49

that animals as large as deer live wild in our country.

0:11:490:11:53

-You'd think it's easy to spot them, but I never have.

-Well, they're shy.

0:11:530:11:58

I suppose they'd rather live in the country than in the city, like I do.

0:11:580:12:03

-They do live in cities too.

-Really? Amazing!

0:12:030:12:07

When you're out and about in a city, don't forget to look for wildlife.

0:12:170:12:22

Here in one of Scotland's busiest cities

0:12:220:12:27

is one of the last creatures you would expect to find.

0:12:270:12:31

Hello! I'm a roe deer.

0:12:310:12:34

And this is my sister.

0:12:340:12:37

She's a female doe and I'm a male buck.

0:12:370:12:41

You can tell I'm a boy, since only male roe deer have antlers.

0:12:410:12:46

Antlers are the horns that look like branches

0:12:460:12:49

poking out from the top of my head.

0:12:490:12:52

We live here, slap bang in the city centre,

0:12:540:12:59

surrounded by houses, roads

0:12:590:13:01

and factories. It might seem

0:13:010:13:04

a strange place for a forest animal to live, but it's perfect for us.

0:13:040:13:08

You see, roe deer are different to other deer,

0:13:080:13:13

since we like to live alone or in a pair instead of a large group.

0:13:130:13:18

We like to live away from other roe deer,

0:13:180:13:21

cos you can't have too many roe deer living in the same place.

0:13:210:13:26

There's less space and less food to share,

0:13:260:13:29

so this is where we have decided to set up home, away from other deer.

0:13:290:13:34

We can't complain, since this city park provides shelter

0:13:340:13:38

and a great variety of plants to nibble on.

0:13:380:13:42

We share our city home with lots of other animals, too.

0:13:450:13:49

See if you recognise any of our neighbours.

0:13:490:13:53

There's a cheeky squirrel,

0:13:540:13:57

a little wren...

0:13:570:13:59

..a busy magpie,

0:14:000:14:02

and look out! Here comes a fox!

0:14:020:14:06

So you see,

0:14:060:14:08

there really are some wonderful creatures living in the city too.

0:14:080:14:13

And even roe deer like my sister and I

0:14:130:14:16

are better suited to city life than you may expect.

0:14:160:14:20

It just shows you don't have to go far - you can see amazing animals

0:14:200:14:25

living right on your doorstep.

0:14:250:14:28

See you, then!

0:14:280:14:30

# I used to think maybe you loved me

0:14:360:14:41

# Now, baby, I'm sure

0:14:410:14:42

# And I just can't wait till the day

0:14:460:14:48

# When you knock on my door

0:14:480:14:51

# Now every time I go for the mailbox

0:14:540:14:58

# Gotta hold myself down

0:14:580:15:00

# Cos I just can't wait till you write me you're coming around

0:15:030:15:09

# Now I'm walking on sunshine Who-oa

0:15:110:15:15

# I'm walking on sunshine Who-oa

0:15:150:15:20

# I'm walking on sunshine Who-oa

0:15:200:15:24

# And don't it feel good? Hey! All right now!

0:15:240:15:27

# Don't it feel good?

0:15:270:15:29

# I say it, say it, say it again now Don't it feel good?

0:15:290:15:35

# Hey, yeah!

0:15:350:15:37

# Don't it feel good?

0:15:370:15:40

# Don't it, don't it, don't it Don't it feel good...? #

0:15:400:15:44

I'm going to keep my eyes open for a deer. I'd love to see one!

0:15:440:15:49

Jay, have you noticed there's a deer on our website?

0:15:490:15:53

-Skipper was just showing me.

-Oh, yes! It's a secret picture password.

0:15:530:15:58

Which shall we choose, the apple or the deer?

0:15:580:16:01

-It's got to be the deer.

-I agree. Shall we click on it?

0:16:010:16:04

Yes! I knew it!

0:16:040:16:08

So if you're trying to get on our website,

0:16:080:16:11

the picture password is the deer.

0:16:110:16:13

-What are you two up to?

-Looking for compost for Lily-Rose's planting.

0:16:160:16:21

I'm sure the worms would have made some by now.

0:16:210:16:25

Well, the worms are working very hard.

0:16:250:16:28

It takes a lot of time to eat all this. You'll have to wait a while.

0:16:280:16:33

Oh, but I want to plant my apple pips now.

0:16:330:16:38

Well, that's why Skipper and I have found you something.

0:16:380:16:42

Skipper! Skipper!

0:16:420:16:44

Skipper! Good girl!

0:16:440:16:47

-Compost!

-Compost!

0:16:470:16:49

Thanks!

0:16:490:16:50

Good luck, guys.

0:16:510:16:54

Skipper!

0:16:540:16:56

-Now what are we going to do, Lily-Rose?

-Plant my apple pips

0:16:560:17:00

in this pot.

0:17:000:17:01

-What kind of apples do you think they'll be?

-I think red ones.

0:17:010:17:06

My favourite apples are red crunchy ones. What do your seeds need?

0:17:060:17:12

Well, it needs soil,

0:17:120:17:15

rain and sunlight.

0:17:150:17:17

In goes the last bit...

0:17:170:17:20

-There.

-There we go.

0:17:200:17:23

Now...I'll poke a hole through

0:17:230:17:26

and you put the seed in.

0:17:260:17:28

One...

-Two...

-..two...

0:17:330:17:38

Three...

0:17:380:17:42

four...

0:17:420:17:44

..five...

0:17:460:17:47

..and the last one,

0:17:510:17:52

six.

0:17:520:17:54

Now they're done.

0:17:580:18:00

-No, now we need water.

-Oh, yes.

0:18:000:18:04

A tiny drop.

0:18:040:18:07

Stop!

0:18:070:18:08

Stop!

0:18:120:18:14

Thanks for helping me, Ant.

0:18:170:18:18

-I'll let you have an apple when they grow.

-Maybe we could grow oranges.

0:18:180:18:23

With apple pips? No!

0:18:230:18:26

No, I didn't mean that!

0:18:260:18:28

I meant every orange we eat, we can save the seeds and grow a tree.

0:18:280:18:33

How about a lemon? Lemons have pips in.

0:18:330:18:36

-Or a plum.

-Plums? They don't have pips in, they have stones!

0:18:360:18:41

-I'm pretty sure a plum stone is a kind of seed.

-Shall we try that too?

0:18:410:18:46

Yes, we could grow a whole orchard.

0:18:460:18:49

Then we could make a fruit salad for everyone. That would be great.

0:18:490:18:53

I think I can see some Green Balloon Club members down there.

0:18:530:18:58

Hello!

0:18:580:18:59

Yes!

0:18:590:19:01

It must be time for the Spot of the Week.

0:19:010:19:04

Hello!

0:19:060:19:08

This week's Spot is fungi.

0:19:080:19:11

-Please help me spot some.

-Fungi is the name of a group of living things

0:19:150:19:20

like mushrooms and toadstools.

0:19:200:19:22

Fungi like damp areas,

0:19:220:19:26

and you can find them in parks, gardens and woods.

0:19:260:19:30

They really like living at the roots of trees.

0:19:300:19:34

They come in all shapes and sizes.

0:19:340:19:37

Look at this one - it's a shaggy parasol.

0:19:370:19:42

These are fairy ring mushrooms.

0:19:420:19:44

And you can see where the grass grows thicker,

0:19:440:19:49

where the other fairy ring mushrooms have been.

0:19:490:19:52

Look at that!

0:19:530:19:55

It's inside the tree.

0:19:550:19:56

Do not ever pick or touch fungi.

0:19:560:20:00

Some are VERY poisonous

0:20:000:20:02

and could make you very sick.

0:20:020:20:06

You can eat some types of mushroom, but buy them from a shop.

0:20:060:20:11

Why don't YOU spot some?

0:20:110:20:13

So remember the clues...

0:20:130:20:15

They grow in damp areas. Find them in your garden, parks or woods.

0:20:150:20:21

They come in all shapes and sizes.

0:20:210:20:24

Remember - don't pick them or touch them.

0:20:240:20:27

-Now YOU spot some.

-Bye!

0:20:270:20:30

You can watch that Spot again on our website,

0:20:370:20:40

and if you spot some fungi, you could earn a green star.

0:20:400:20:44

But please do remember not to pick or even touch them.

0:20:440:20:48

A lot of toadstools can be very, very poisonous. Draw a picture!

0:20:480:20:52

-Um, Sky? I think we're coming in to land.

-Oh, thanks, Jay.

0:20:520:20:57

Places, everyone!

0:20:570:20:59

-And whenever we land, it's...

-ALL: Time for a song!

0:21:070:21:13

# Listen!

0:21:200:21:22

# We're looking

0:21:240:21:26

# For a trail on the ground

0:21:280:21:30

# For a sign or a sound in the...

0:21:300:21:33

# Silence... # WHINES

0:21:330:21:36

# Something's hiding

0:21:360:21:38

# Something's smelling... #

0:21:390:21:42

Poo!

0:21:420:21:43

# All the animals snuggle up

0:21:430:21:46

# Thinking, "Nobody can...find us!"

0:21:460:21:50

# We're looking for a hole where a mouse is sleeping

0:21:500:21:56

# We're searching under leaves where a bug's been creeping

0:21:560:21:59

# Following the trail of food half-eaten

0:21:590:22:03

# What's that there under the tree...? #

0:22:030:22:06

Ssh!

0:22:060:22:07

# Listen!

0:22:070:22:08

# We might be missing

0:22:110:22:12

# A sign or a clue

0:22:140:22:17

# That could lead us all to

0:22:170:22:19

# Who knows where or what?

0:22:190:22:21

# We're looking for a branch where a squirrel is climbing

0:22:380:22:42

# Or underneath a flower where a snail's been hiding

0:22:420:22:46

# Following tracks to a nest or a warren

0:22:460:22:50

# What's in that hole in the ground...? #

0:22:500:22:52

Ssshhhhh!

0:22:520:22:53

# Listen

0:22:530:22:56

# We're looking

0:22:570:22:59

# For a trail on the ground

0:23:010:23:03

# For a sight or a sound in the...

0:23:030:23:05

# Silence

0:23:050:23:08

# For a trail on the ground

0:23:080:23:10

# For a sight or a sound in the...

0:23:100:23:13

# Silence

0:23:130:23:16

# For a trail on the ground

0:23:160:23:19

# For a sight or a sound in the...

0:23:190:23:22

# Silence. #

0:23:220:23:24

Sshhh!

0:23:260:23:29

# Listen...

0:23:290:23:31

# Listen. #

0:23:350:23:36

OWL HOOTS

0:23:370:23:40

Bye!

0:23:400:23:42

Look out for some fungi this week!

0:23:420:23:44

-Or even a deer.

-Or see if you can plant some apple pips.

0:23:440:23:48

-Or seed of any other fruit. See you next week.

-Bye!

0:23:480:23:53

Lily-Rose and friends travel Great Britain in a green hot air balloon hearing stories from children.

Jelly is harvesting apples in an orchard while Lily-Rose and Ant are starting a planting experiment to see if they can grow an apple tree. Cat and Jay are finding out about deer with the help of Green Balloon Club members Melina and Naureen.

Rhys and Jem are setting the week's spot - and it is a pretty dangerouse one! And finally the team all head down to the woods for the Green Balloon Club song to see what wildlife they can find there.
