Hello, I'm happy you're here. Come on in.

0:01:020:01:05

ALL: Hello!

0:01:050:01:08

-Welcome to the Green Balloon Club.

-Do you like going to the woods?

0:01:080:01:12

Today, that's where we're heading because we're wild about woods!

0:01:120:01:18

But first we better take the register.

0:01:200:01:23

Lily-Rose?

0:01:230:01:24

Lily-Rose is wild about woods!

0:01:240:01:27

Aren't we all?

0:01:280:01:30

Great. Ant?

0:01:300:01:31

Ant is wild about woods!

0:01:310:01:37

Great! Now it's Cat.

0:01:370:01:39

Cat is wild about woods!

0:01:390:01:44

That's good. Is Skipper wild about woods too?

0:01:440:01:47

Skipper's wild about woods!

0:01:470:01:50

Oh yes, I think she is.

0:01:500:01:51

Now it's me.

0:01:510:01:53

Jay's...

0:01:550:01:58

wild about woods! Arrrgggh!

0:01:580:02:00

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!

0:02:000:02:02

Ohhhh!

0:02:020:02:05

LAUGHTER

0:02:050:02:07

Now it's Sky.

0:02:070:02:09

Sky is wild about woods!

0:02:090:02:14

So she is.

0:02:140:02:15

And what about you? Are you wild about woods?

0:02:150:02:18

Join in with us.

0:02:180:02:19

ALL: Wild about woods!

0:02:200:02:25

Great! Everyone's present and correct and wild about woods.

0:02:280:02:32

Shall we do the club chant?

0:02:320:02:34

ALL: Yeah!

0:02:340:02:36

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds.

0:02:410:02:44

We love snails and slugs.

0:02:440:02:46

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

0:02:460:02:51

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:02:510:02:55

We should be nearly there now.

0:02:550:02:57

-Have a look, Ant, and see if you can see the woods.

-OK.

0:02:570:03:01

We are! We are! I can see trees down below.

0:03:010:03:04

-Can you see our special reporter?

-I can - it's Ralph.

0:03:040:03:07

ALL: Hello, Ralph!

0:03:070:03:09

Hello!

0:03:090:03:10

Can you tell us more about it, Ralph?

0:03:100:03:13

I sure can, Ant.

0:03:130:03:14

I'm in this fantastic event called Wild About Woods

0:03:140:03:18

and everyone is completely wild about woods!

0:03:180:03:21

-Yeah!

-Yeah!

0:03:210:03:22

What we can do is pencil and paper-making -

0:03:220:03:25

even apple-bobbing!

0:03:250:03:27

I've two friends - Mark and James.

0:03:270:03:29

Let's see what they say. Mark?

0:03:290:03:31

I can't wait to make charcoal pencils - it'll be totally cool.

0:03:310:03:36

I think that'd be fun. How about you, James?

0:03:360:03:39

I can't wait until pencils, I just can't!

0:03:390:03:43

That's really good.

0:03:430:03:44

I'll check out all these events and report back soon.

0:03:440:03:48

Back to the Green Balloon.

0:03:480:03:50

I love the way you've done these leaf-decorations,

0:03:550:03:58

they're so clever.

0:03:580:04:00

Well, Sky did help me a bit.

0:04:000:04:02

We've received other autumn pictures

0:04:020:04:05

from other Green Balloon Club members.

0:04:050:04:07

Is there room to hang them up?

0:04:070:04:09

I'm sure there is room. Let's see the pictures.

0:04:090:04:13

Well, this one's from Kinsa.

0:04:130:04:16

I really like the hedgehog and the squirrel.

0:04:160:04:19

I like the tree and the leaves.

0:04:190:04:21

And I like this one from Matthew.

0:04:220:04:25

Because I like the way how he's put a person in and the roots of the tree.

0:04:250:04:32

I like the way he's done the nice shining sun.

0:04:320:04:35

I really like this one from Davy, the hedgehog and the tree.

0:04:350:04:39

And I like the tulips and the grass.

0:04:390:04:42

Yes.

0:04:420:04:43

And I like this one the best of all, from Zara,

0:04:430:04:47

the squirrel and the red juicy apple.

0:04:470:04:52

Oh, I could just eat it!

0:04:520:04:54

I like that too, Lily-Rose. Shall we hang them up?

0:04:550:04:59

Yes.

0:04:590:05:00

Special report! Special report!

0:05:020:05:04

That's Jelly with her special report. Where is she today?

0:05:040:05:08

Hello, Jelly!

0:05:080:05:10

Oh! Oh!

0:05:140:05:16

Ha-ha!

0:05:160:05:17

I'm in Bill Oddie's garden!

0:05:180:05:20

I just love bird-watching in your garden, Bill.

0:05:200:05:23

Because you put out food for the birds.

0:05:230:05:26

That's right. Especially this time of year,

0:05:260:05:29

when it's cold and there's not so many insects and berries,

0:05:290:05:34

it's a really good idea to feed the birds.

0:05:340:05:36

You know, Jelly, I was thinking of making a brand new feeder

0:05:360:05:42

which I think you might like. Do you fancy that idea?

0:05:420:05:45

-Oh yes!

-Shall we?

-Let's go, come on!

-Wait for me!

0:05:450:05:49

Are we going to feed them grapefruit, Bill?

0:05:490:05:52

We might give them a little bit of the grapefruit but not really, no.

0:05:520:05:57

We're going to take out the middle

0:05:570:05:59

and we're going to use the outside to make our feeder.

0:05:590:06:03

-You need something to do, don't you?

-Yes.

0:06:030:06:06

-You see in this bowl?

-Yes.

-That white stuff is called lard.

-Oh?

0:06:060:06:11

-And it's a kind of fat.

-But I thought fat was bad for us?

0:06:110:06:15

It is if you eat too much, but it's good for birds.

0:06:150:06:18

It gives them energy over winter.

0:06:180:06:20

-Oh.

-And it keeps them warm.

0:06:200:06:22

What I want you to do is take a spoon -

0:06:220:06:25

-you're going to have to stir these seeds into the lard.

-Mmm.

0:06:250:06:30

-So I'm going to put some of those in.

-Right. How many seeds?

0:06:300:06:34

Something like a cupful.

0:06:340:06:36

There you go. You stir all that in.

0:06:360:06:40

Right. I'm going to take this bit which was like a lid -

0:06:400:06:44

I'm going to cut out two round bits - make them nice and round -

0:06:440:06:49

and there we are, put a little hole through them.

0:06:490:06:53

Now, do you see these little things?

0:06:530:06:55

But Oddie, they're so sweet!

0:06:550:06:57

Sweet? Well -

0:06:570:06:58

I'm not sure they taste sweet - they might smell sweet.

0:06:580:07:02

Have a sniff.

0:07:020:07:03

-They smell all spicy.

-Spicy, that's the word!

0:07:030:07:06

-What are they called?

-They're called cloves.

0:07:060:07:09

Cloves.

0:07:090:07:11

I'm going to put a couple of holes in here -

0:07:110:07:14

-one little hole there...

-Yes?

0:07:140:07:16

..and then I'll put the cloves through there

0:07:160:07:19

and another little hole there and another little clove...

0:07:190:07:23

What's it going to be?

0:07:230:07:25

What? Well, you tell me.

0:07:250:07:27

-I don't know.

-You think it could look like eyes?

0:07:270:07:30

-Yes! That's what I was going to say!

-It might be.

-They might be eyes.

0:07:300:07:35

It might be eyes.

0:07:350:07:36

The next thing to do - see this pineapple?

0:07:360:07:39

Some of the leaves at the top are loose.

0:07:390:07:42

I want you to pull out the leaves that are loose, give them to me

0:07:420:07:46

and you'll see what I'm going to do soon.

0:07:460:07:48

I need to get back to making a mouth.

0:07:480:07:51

-I need to pull out the leaves.

-More little holes and cloves.

0:07:510:07:55

-A mouth?!

-A mouth, yeah. That means it must be a person of some sort.

0:07:550:07:59

Next thing we're going to do -

0:07:590:08:01

I better do this because it's difficult -

0:08:010:08:04

I'll roll this up into a big ball.

0:08:040:08:07

It's like a cake, isn't it?

0:08:070:08:09

-Then you put it in the grapefruit?

-I'm putting it in the grapefruit.

0:08:090:08:13

-That's clever.

-So it's absolutely full.

-Packed in!

0:08:130:08:17

-Packed in!

-Ohh!

-There we are.

0:08:170:08:21

Now, do you have any idea what this is yet, Jelly?

0:08:210:08:24

-I really don't know.

-Come on, look at it closely.

0:08:240:08:28

-I still don't know, Bill.

-You don't?

-No.

0:08:280:08:31

OK. Here's another last thing we can do.

0:08:310:08:34

I'm going to put these - I should have some little slitty bits here -

0:08:340:08:39

It's for hair! It's green hair, isn't it? It's somebody with green...

0:08:390:08:45

-Green what? Spiky hair, don't you think?

-With green spiky hair?

0:08:450:08:49

-It's not soft hair. And big eyes.

-Oh, oh, oh!

0:08:490:08:52

That look out at you.

0:08:520:08:54

-And sometimes look a little bit sad but not always.

-Yes! Um...

0:08:540:08:58

-Now do you recognise it?

-Yes, it's me, Bill! It's me!

-Is it?

0:08:580:09:02

Yay, yay, yes.

0:09:020:09:04

I think it just might be!

0:09:040:09:08

Mwah!

0:09:080:09:09

BILL LAUGHS I love it, Bill.

0:09:090:09:11

It is the best bird-feeder ever. I really hope the birds like it too.

0:09:110:09:16

I just love that bird-feeder.

0:09:170:09:20

-Thank you so much, Bill.

-It was a pleasure. It was good fun.

0:09:200:09:24

I enjoyed it.

0:09:240:09:25

Wow, it looks like you had fun with Bill, Jelly.

0:09:250:09:29

I'm now here at the charcoal pencil-making.

0:09:290:09:32

I wonder how they make pencils? Let me go and find out.

0:09:320:09:36

I've found Mark making pencils. Let's find more information.

0:09:370:09:41

OK then Ralph, what I'm doing - first we've got these sort of sticks,

0:09:410:09:46

we have to peel this bark off, like I'm doing now, with a peeler,

0:09:460:09:50

and then we're going to put them on a sort of big tray sort of thing

0:09:500:09:56

and then we're going to put the tray on the fire

0:09:560:09:59

and then when they come out, we'll make them into charcoal pencils.

0:09:590:10:04

It'll be fun when they turn out.

0:10:040:10:07

Great information. Now I'm going to move on to someone else to chat to.

0:10:070:10:11

I've just found Emily and Chris. Let's find out some more.

0:10:130:10:17

We're hollowing out elderflower branches to make pencils.

0:10:170:10:21

Then we put some charcoal in the pencil that we hollowed out,

0:10:210:10:25

then we can write with it.

0:10:250:10:27

Amazing! I wonder how they'll look? I'm off to find more people.

0:10:270:10:31

Just found some children who've made their pencils from this exact fire.

0:10:320:10:37

Let's see their pictures.

0:10:370:10:39

What have you made?

0:10:390:10:40

A cannonball with fire.

0:10:400:10:42

A cannonball with fire. Wow! And how about you?

0:10:420:10:46

A tyrannosaurus rex.

0:10:460:10:47

Wow. Look at yours! What have you done?

0:10:470:10:50

-A giraffe.

-Wow.

0:10:500:10:53

I've just finished and the pencils are amazing!

0:10:530:10:56

I'll see what else there is. Back to the green balloon.

0:10:560:11:00

When me and Skipper were in the woods,

0:11:070:11:09

he found something very interesting.

0:11:090:11:12

-Was it rabbits?

-No, it was kind of on a big hill with holes in it.

0:11:120:11:16

-Rabbit holes?

-No, it was too big for rabbit holes.

0:11:160:11:20

What was it then?

0:11:200:11:21

Skipper sniffed out a paw print. It looked kind of like this.

0:11:210:11:25

SKY LAUGHS

0:11:280:11:29

That's definitely not a rabbit print, is it?

0:11:300:11:33

-Well, I looked it up and I think it's a badger.

-A badger? Wow.

0:11:330:11:37

They do live underground in holes.

0:11:370:11:40

-Skipper was very excited.

-I'm not surprised - it's a badger!

0:11:400:11:45

Cat's Creatures.

0:11:500:11:51

It's winter.

0:11:560:11:57

And deep underground, under the oak tree,

0:11:570:12:00

lives one of Britain's most loved animals.

0:12:000:12:03

I'm easy to recognise since I have a long stripy face,

0:12:030:12:07

short stumpy legs and a bushy white tail.

0:12:070:12:11

I'm a badger.

0:12:110:12:12

We all live together with other badgers

0:12:120:12:15

in an underground home called a sett.

0:12:150:12:18

Towards the end of winter,

0:12:180:12:20

we get ready for our new arrival of baby badger cubs.

0:12:200:12:23

Baby badgers are tiny and are born with their eyes closed.

0:12:230:12:27

It's not long before their eyes open.

0:12:270:12:30

I suckle my cubs with milk, so they grow stronger day by day -

0:12:300:12:35

until they're ready to leave the safety of the sett

0:12:350:12:39

and explore the big wide world above ground.

0:12:390:12:42

By the time my cubs are 12 weeks old,

0:12:420:12:46

it's spring and the snow has cleared and the bluebells have flowered.

0:12:460:12:51

Like all badgers, I'm nocturnal,

0:12:510:12:53

which means they sleep through the day and come out at night.

0:12:530:12:58

But in the summer, badgers are awake in the evening while it's light.

0:12:590:13:04

Our first job of the evening is to collect some nice,

0:13:080:13:11

fresh, clean bedding, which I take underground into the sett.

0:13:110:13:15

We're very clean and tidy, you know.

0:13:150:13:18

Our favourite food is earthworms.

0:13:180:13:20

We use our great sense of smell and strong paws

0:13:200:13:23

to sniff out and dig for juicy worms.

0:13:230:13:26

Near to our sett is a river

0:13:270:13:29

and it's a great place to take my cubs to find juicy earthworms.

0:13:290:13:33

All of you, stay close to me, and no getting near the water!

0:13:330:13:37

As night falls and the moon shines bright in the sky,

0:13:440:13:47

my family of badgers take time out to do what badgers like best -

0:13:470:13:52

to have a good scratch and groom.

0:13:520:13:54

And as a new day dawns and the sun comes up,

0:14:020:14:05

it's time for us to go down underground

0:14:050:14:08

to the safety of our sett and have a good sleep.

0:14:080:14:11

Is that a badger you've drawn, Jay?

0:14:190:14:22

Yes. I thought we could make a picture for Cat and Skipper.

0:14:220:14:25

Will we paint it?

0:14:250:14:27

Well, as badgers are black and white,

0:14:270:14:29

I thought we could make a collage out of some newspaper.

0:14:290:14:33

First, we need to find some black bits.

0:14:330:14:36

How about you do the head and I'll do the body?

0:14:360:14:39

That's a good idea, Ant.

0:14:390:14:41

Have you ever seen a badger, Ant?

0:14:460:14:48

Hmm, yes. I saw it when I was on my way home.

0:14:480:14:53

I'd love to see one.

0:14:530:14:55

Do you know when badgers come out?

0:14:560:14:59

In the night because they're nocturnal.

0:14:590:15:02

Jay, what shall I use for the back?

0:15:020:15:05

Well, the back's kind of grey,

0:15:050:15:07

-so why don't you use some of this newspaper?

-OK.

0:15:070:15:11

-That's good.

-Thank you.

0:15:190:15:20

-You're doing really well as well.

-Thanks.

0:15:200:15:23

I do hope Cat and Skipper like it.

0:15:300:15:33

I think they will.

0:15:340:15:35

-Ant?

-Yeah?

0:15:370:15:39

Do you think a badger would be bigger or smaller than Skipper?

0:15:390:15:43

Hmm...I think...

0:15:430:15:45

that it would be a little bit smaller and a bit fatter.

0:15:450:15:50

Right.

0:15:500:15:52

There's an eye.

0:15:530:15:55

Jay, do you know what badgers live in?

0:15:550:15:59

Do they live in burrows?

0:15:590:16:00

No, it's called a sett.

0:16:000:16:02

Oh, right. There's another. Now just the nose to do.

0:16:020:16:07

There. I think it's brilliant.

0:16:130:16:16

-I definitely think Cat and Skipper will like it.

-Yeah.

0:16:160:16:20

Hey! There's Ralph with his next report!

0:16:210:16:24

Any sign of badgers down there?

0:16:240:16:26

No sign of badgers, I'm afraid.

0:16:260:16:28

But there's something you'll like.

0:16:280:16:31

We're at the paper-making stand. Let's find some children.

0:16:310:16:35

I've just found James and Carolina. Tell me what you're doing, James?

0:16:390:16:44

We are making lovely paper. I'll show you how it's done.

0:16:440:16:49

We have to stir the water to make more of this stuff called paper pulp,

0:16:490:16:55

dump it in the paper pulp water...

0:16:550:16:58

one, two, three and bingo!

0:16:580:17:02

This is looking pretty amazing. Let's see what happens next.

0:17:020:17:06

Wow, guys, what's happening here?

0:17:080:17:10

Now we have to take the frame off, put it about there,

0:17:100:17:15

and get this tissue...

0:17:150:17:17

..then we dump it on the paper.

0:17:210:17:24

Then what happens?

0:17:250:17:26

We flip it over and with this blue cloth,

0:17:260:17:31

we get the remaining water that was left and...

0:17:310:17:37

bingo!

0:17:400:17:41

-Now you've got your very own paper!

-Amazing!

0:17:410:17:44

Now I can go home and I've got my own pencil and paper made from wood!

0:17:440:17:49

I'm done here for today.

0:17:500:17:51

Ralph, reporting for the Green Balloon Club. Bye!

0:17:510:17:55

ALL: Bye!

0:17:550:17:56

# I'm picking up good vibrations

0:17:560:17:59

# She's giving me excitations

0:17:590:18:02

# Oom-bop-bop, good vibrations

0:18:020:18:06

# She's giving me excitations

0:18:060:18:08

# Good, good, good, good vibrations

0:18:080:18:12

# She's giving me excitations

0:18:120:18:15

# Good, good, good, good vibrations

0:18:150:18:19

# She's giving me excitations

0:18:190:18:21

# Na-na-na-na-na

0:18:210:18:23

# Na-na-na

0:18:230:18:24

# Na-na-na-na-na

0:18:240:18:26

# Na-na-na. #

0:18:260:18:28

I'm sure our badger's wild about woods.

0:18:350:18:38

Well, he's a wild animal and he lives in the woods.

0:18:380:18:41

So he must be.

0:18:410:18:43

We've got a badger on our website -

0:18:430:18:45

it might be the secret picture password!

0:18:450:18:48

-I think it must be.

-I like your collage.

0:18:480:18:50

Thanks. Can I put it up around here?

0:18:500:18:53

Only when you've helped me choose the picture password.

0:18:530:18:57

-We've got conkers or the badger.

-The badger, definitely.

0:18:570:19:02

All right then.

0:19:020:19:03

BOTH: Yes!

0:19:040:19:05

If you're going on our website this week,

0:19:060:19:09

the secret picture password is the badger.

0:19:090:19:13

What can you see there, Skipper?

0:19:130:19:15

Oh! I can see Green Balloon Club members!

0:19:150:19:18

It must be time for this week's Spot.

0:19:180:19:20

Spot of the Week!

0:19:200:19:22

BOTH: This week's Spot is a sycamore seed.

0:19:220:19:25

It comes from this big tree - the sycamore.

0:19:290:19:32

It's a beautiful dome shape and taller than a house.

0:19:320:19:36

Sycamore leaves are quite big.

0:19:400:19:43

Found one!

0:19:510:19:52

The seed has a special wing.

0:19:520:19:55

When we throw ours, it spins like a helicopter.

0:19:550:19:58

It goes round and round till it lands on the ground.

0:19:580:20:02

Here's how you can spot one.

0:20:030:20:05

It comes from this big tree - the sycamore.

0:20:060:20:09

The seed has a special wing.

0:20:090:20:12

When we throw ours, it spins like a helicopter.

0:20:120:20:15

BOTH: Now you find one!

0:20:150:20:18

Wheeeeee!

0:20:230:20:26

I've made some paper sycamore seeds from our website.

0:20:260:20:30

Wheeeeee!

0:20:320:20:34

You can find out how to make them on our website.

0:20:360:20:40

Or earn yourself a green star if you spot some real ones.

0:20:400:20:44

Before you look, hold on tight,

0:20:440:20:46

because we're coming in to land!

0:20:460:20:48

And whenever we land, it's...

0:20:560:21:00

ALL: Time for a song!

0:21:000:21:03

ALL: Ssh!

0:21:070:21:09

# Listen

0:21:100:21:12

# We're looking

0:21:140:21:16

# For a trail on the ground For a sight or a sound in the...

0:21:180:21:22

# Silence

0:21:230:21:25

# Something's hiding

0:21:260:21:28

# Something's smelling. #

0:21:290:21:32

ALL: Pooh!

0:21:320:21:33

# All the animals snuggled up Thinking nobody can...

0:21:330:21:38

# Find us

0:21:380:21:40

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

0:21:410:21:45

# We're searching underneath where a bug's been creeping

0:21:450:21:49

# Following the trail of food half-eaten

0:21:490:21:53

# What's that there under the tree? #

0:21:530:21:56

Ssh!

0:21:560:21:57

# Listen

0:21:570:21:59

# We might be missing

0:22:000:22:03

# A sign or a clue that can lead us all to who knows...

0:22:050:22:09

# Where or what

0:22:090:22:11

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

0:22:280:22:32

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

0:22:320:22:36

# Following tracks to a nest or a warren

0:22:360:22:40

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

0:22:400:22:42

ALL: Ssh!

0:22:420:22:43

# Listen

0:22:430:22:45

# We're looking

0:22:470:22:48

# For a trail on the ground For a sight or a sound in the...

0:22:500:22:55

# Silence

0:22:550:22:57

# For a trail on the ground For a sight or a sound in the...

0:22:570:23:02

# Silence

0:23:040:23:06

# For a trail on the ground For a sight or a sound in the...

0:23:060:23:11

# Silence. #

0:23:120:23:14

Ssh!

0:23:160:23:19

# Listen

0:23:190:23:21

# Listen. #

0:23:240:23:26

Thanks for flying with us.

0:23:270:23:29

See if you spot a sycamore helicopter.

0:23:290:23:31

You could make one on our website.

0:23:310:23:33

You might get to see a badger.

0:23:330:23:35

-Or make a picture of one!

-See you next week!

0:23:360:23:39

ALL: BYE!
