0:00:530:00:56

Hello, there! It may be getting dark early and getting colder outside,

0:01:020:01:08

but in the Green Balloon Club we're keeping warm by doing exercise.

0:01:080:01:13

Come in and join us.

0:01:130:01:14

ALL: Hello!

0:01:140:01:17

Welcome to the Green Balloon Club.

0:01:170:01:19

-Do you know how fast some animals can run?

-Or how high they can jump?

0:01:190:01:24

-Or how quickly some animals can climb?

-Or how gracefully they dive?

0:01:240:01:29

Or how brilliantly some can swim?

0:01:290:01:32

We're all going to try and get fit and keep up with them.

0:01:320:01:36

I've got an idea. Can I do the register?

0:01:360:01:40

-Of course. Here you go.

-Thanks, Jay.

0:01:400:01:44

Follow me.

0:01:480:01:50

One, two, three, four Is Lily at the door?

0:01:500:01:54

Five, six, seven, eight Lily's here and feeling great.

0:01:540:01:59

One, two, three, four Is Cat at the door?

0:01:590:02:02

Five, six, seven, eight Cat is here and feeling great.

0:02:020:02:07

One, two, three, four Is Skipper at the door?

0:02:070:02:10

Five, six, seven, eight Skipper's here and feeling great.

0:02:100:02:14

One, two, three, four Is Jay at the door?

0:02:140:02:18

Five, six, seven, eight Jay is here and feeling great.

0:02:180:02:22

One, two, three, four Is Sky at the door?

0:02:220:02:26

Five, six, seven, eight Sky is here and feeling great.

0:02:260:02:30

Now it's your turn.

0:02:300:02:31

One, two, three, four Are you at the door?

0:02:310:02:35

ALL: Five, six, seven, eight I am here and feeling great.

0:02:350:02:40

That's everyone, then.

0:02:400:02:42

Now it's time for the Green Balloon Club chant.

0:02:420:02:45

ALL: Yeah!

0:02:450:02:47

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds

0:02:500:02:54

We love snails and slugs

0:02:540:02:56

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

0:02:560:03:01

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:03:010:03:05

-Sky, have you forgotten we have to land to pick someone up?

-No.

0:03:050:03:10

But we're not quite there yet.

0:03:100:03:13

First, we'll fly over to some Green Balloon Club members in Cardiff.

0:03:130:03:17

-They've found some champion jumpers.

-Is it a kangaroo?

-No.

0:03:170:03:22

-Is it rabbits?

-No, not rabbits.

0:03:220:03:25

-How about fleas? They can jump high.

-No, not fleas.

-Tell us, please!

0:03:250:03:32

No need. I can see someone - look, down there by the river.

0:03:320:03:36

Perhaps they've found a frog. Frogs can jump really high.

0:03:360:03:40

ALL: Hello!

0:03:400:03:44

We've come to the park today.

0:03:440:03:46

Something special is here. Follow us.

0:03:460:03:48

If you watch the river carefully, you will see something amazing.

0:03:540:03:59

ALL: Look! Look! There!

0:03:590:04:03

Did you see that?

0:04:030:04:06

That big fish is called a salmon.

0:04:060:04:09

Did you see how it jumped?

0:04:110:04:12

In the autumn, salmon make really long journeys.

0:04:170:04:22

They swim all the way from the sea back up the river,

0:04:220:04:26

where they were born, to lay their eggs.

0:04:260:04:30

-There!

-There!

-There!

0:04:310:04:33

Look how high they are jumping.

0:04:330:04:37

It must be so hard to jump a waterfall. Look at them.

0:04:370:04:41

He's catching his breath. He's got a friend!

0:04:410:04:45

Come on, salmon! You can do it!

0:04:510:04:54

I think he's made it - hooray!

0:04:560:04:59

ALL: Bye!

0:05:020:05:04

I never knew fish could jump.

0:05:110:05:14

I know. It's amazing, isn't it, Lily-Rose?

0:05:140:05:17

I love how they're so determined to get back up the river.

0:05:170:05:21

That was such a brilliant spot, I'm drawing salmon for the scrap book.

0:05:210:05:26

Sky was right - they ARE champion jumpers.

0:05:260:05:29

-Where's Cat gone?

-We've landed for her to pick up a special visitor.

0:05:290:05:34

-Is it a champion jumper?

-No, this one's rather speedy.

0:05:340:05:40

Perhaps it's a cheetah. They're the fastest animals, I think.

0:05:400:05:45

Yes, Lily-Rose, but they don't live in this country.

0:05:450:05:48

What's the fastest animal in the UK?

0:05:480:05:51

Skipper's quite fast, aren't you?

0:05:510:05:54

Perhaps it's rabbits. Skipper sometimes chases rabbits

0:05:540:05:58

and they still escape from her.

0:05:580:06:01

Maybe it's a bird. Some birds fly really fast.

0:06:010:06:05

Perhaps it's a fish that swims really fast.

0:06:050:06:08

I wish I could swim really fast. I'm only just learning.

0:06:080:06:13

I can run really fast.

0:06:130:06:15

Then maybe you're the fastest animal in the UK!

0:06:150:06:18

Did you know that the brown hare is the fastest land mammal in Britain?

0:06:210:06:26

Their top speed is 45 miles per hour.

0:06:260:06:30

That's how hares avoid their enemies - by outrunning them

0:06:300:06:34

with their long, powerful back legs.

0:06:340:06:37

The fastest animal on the planet is the peregrine falcon.

0:06:420:06:47

Whilst swooping to catch their prey, they can reach speeds of 200 mph.

0:06:470:06:52

I was right! It WAS a bird!

0:07:000:07:03

Peregrine falcons are such wonderful fliers, and great sky-divers too.

0:07:030:07:08

Look out, everyone. Our special visitor's coming.

0:07:080:07:12

I'd best hold onto Skipper.

0:07:120:07:14

-There you are, Sky.

-Good idea. Skipper, bed.

0:07:140:07:18

Perhaps it's a rabbit. I do hope so. I love rabbits.

0:07:180:07:23

So do I, Lily-Rose, but I don't think it's a rabbit.

0:07:230:07:27

Look, here comes Cat now.

0:07:270:07:29

-Hello, everyone. This is Georgina.

-ALL: Hello, Georgina!

0:07:290:07:34

Aw, she's sweet!

0:07:350:07:38

I love the way she walks.

0:07:380:07:40

Good girl. Let's sit you down here.

0:07:400:07:43

Cat, what is she? I've never seen anything like her before.

0:07:430:07:47

-She's a ferret.

-A ferret? How fascinating!

0:07:470:07:50

She looks a bit scary to me.

0:07:500:07:53

-Are ferrets wild animals?

-They're descended from wild animals

0:07:530:07:57

-but they're kept as pets too.

-Does she bite?

0:07:570:08:00

She sometimes licks the salt on your hand.

0:08:000:08:04

She has sharp teeth but she's not vicious.

0:08:040:08:06

-Ferrets are descended from wild animals? Which ones?

-Polecats.

0:08:060:08:10

Polecats are in the same family as stoats and weasels.

0:08:100:08:14

-And otters and badgers.

-Badgers?!

0:08:140:08:16

She doesn't look like a badger but she looks quite like a stoat.

0:08:160:08:21

-Can I stroke her, Cat?

-Do it sideways,

0:09:300:09:33

-because if you go like that, it scares her.

-OK.

0:09:330:09:37

-Why is Georgina trembling?

-Ferrets tremble when they're excited.

0:09:370:09:42

-Is Georgina excited?

-Yes.

0:09:420:09:44

I thought she would have been bigger than this.

0:09:440:09:49

Male ferrets are bigger than female ferrets

0:09:490:09:52

and Georgina is a female ferret.

0:09:520:09:55

-What are female ferrets called?

-They're called gills.

0:09:550:09:59

-Does that mean males are called Jacks?

-No, they're called hobs.

0:09:590:10:05

-So what would baby ferrets be called?

-They're called kits.

0:10:050:10:09

A bit like kittens.

0:10:090:10:11

-Do they all come in the same colour as Georgina?

-No,

0:10:110:10:15

-some ferrets are gold.

-Some of them are gold?

-Yep.

0:10:150:10:19

Excuse me, Georgina, but you're a bit smelly.

0:10:200:10:23

All ferrets smell like that because it's their natural smell.

0:10:230:10:28

What do ferrets eat?

0:10:280:10:30

They like meaty dog and cat food. Her favourite food is raw egg.

0:10:300:10:36

Raw egg?!

0:10:360:10:37

Hey, well, I've got an egg here.

0:10:370:10:40

-Shall we feed it to Georgina?

-Yeah!

0:10:400:10:43

Oh, look! She likes the egg yolk.

0:10:440:10:48

She's gone for it first.

0:10:480:10:50

She looks really hungry.

0:10:520:10:55

-Would you eat a raw egg?

-BOTH: No!

0:10:550:10:58

She's gone for the yolk first.

0:10:580:11:00

Look at her little tongue.

0:11:000:11:03

She's even closed her eyes a little bit.

0:11:030:11:07

I love her so much!

0:11:070:11:10

She's really enjoying it.

0:11:100:11:12

Hey, this is rather cool.

0:11:140:11:16

One of our Green Balloon Club members has sent in a poem.

0:11:170:11:21

Listen to this.

0:11:210:11:23

Two legs or four legs, which is best? Most have four but two have the rest

0:11:260:11:32

Some creatures have four legs, like dogs, lizards and cats

0:11:360:11:41

Others have just two, like humans, birds and bats

0:11:460:11:51

The cheetah is the fastest and he has four

0:11:520:11:56

But bugs aren't quick and most of them have more!

0:11:560:12:01

Now I know someone who would never be late

0:12:040:12:07

For she is the spider and she has eight

0:12:070:12:11

The giraffe's four legs are long and tall

0:12:170:12:21

And the Ant's six legs are very, very small.

0:12:270:12:30

But I think my legs are better than them all!

0:12:310:12:35

That's an interesting thought, Skipper.

0:12:360:12:39

Whose legs could run faster? A ferret or mine?

0:12:390:12:43

I mean, my legs are this long and a ferret's are about this long.

0:12:430:12:49

The mission machine? Good idea!

0:12:490:12:54

Let's send the ground crew on a mission.

0:12:540:12:58

Which token shall we choose?

0:12:580:13:01

The bird, the bug or the paw print?

0:13:010:13:06

Of course! Clever girl! It has to be the paw print.

0:13:080:13:12

They have four and we have two

0:13:120:13:16

Who's the fastest, a ferret or you?

0:13:160:13:19

-It looks like we have our mission.

-BOTH: Yay!

0:13:320:13:36

Do you want to have a look?

0:13:360:13:38

-What picture is that on the back?

-Paw print.

0:13:400:13:43

This mission must be about an animal. What does it say?

0:13:430:13:47

They've got four legs, you've got two

0:13:470:13:49

-Who's the fastest, ferret or you?

-Ferrets?

0:13:490:13:53

-Where will we find ferrets round here?

-I know - follow me!

0:13:530:13:57

-This is my nana Judy.

-Hi there, Judy.

0:13:590:14:02

-Where are the ferrets from?

-They are all rescued ferrets.

0:14:020:14:07

I run a ferret rescue.

0:14:070:14:09

-Do these guys help you?

-Yes.

0:14:120:14:14

-That's Eve,...that's Parsley...

-Hello, Parsley.

0:14:140:14:19

and this is Gizmo.

0:14:190:14:22

How do you help look after the ferrets?

0:14:220:14:25

We feed them, we give them water and we clean them out every day.

0:14:250:14:30

-Anything else, Saffron?

-We play racing.

0:14:300:14:34

That reminds me. We've got our own race to have.

0:14:340:14:38

All right, ground crew, are we ready for this race?

0:14:390:14:42

It's a sack race. I'm really good.

0:14:420:14:45

-Hey...what are all these tubes for?

-Ferrets love racing down them.

0:14:470:14:52

With their long bodies, they'll shoot straight down these tubes.

0:14:530:14:57

-How about these ones? Are they for us?

-Yeah.

0:14:590:15:02

Our ferrets have arrived as well.

0:15:020:15:05

Shall we take our places for the race? Ferrets down here.

0:15:050:15:10

-Jack, are you ready?

-Yeah!

0:15:110:15:14

-Saffron, are you ready?

-Yeah.

0:15:140:15:16

-Ferrets, are you ready?

-Yes!

0:15:160:15:19

Three, two, one, go!

0:15:190:15:22

Did I win? Did I win?

0:15:430:15:45

That was great, wasn't it?

0:15:480:15:50

Even if Parsley DID beat me.

0:15:500:15:52

Only just, though, Parsley.

0:15:520:15:54

Steady on! It did show that, for racing through tunnels,

0:15:540:15:59

-four legs are better than our two legs, aren't they?

-Yeah.

0:15:590:16:03

-Only one thing left to say...

-Mission complete!

0:16:030:16:07

-And it's back to you in the green balloon.

-Bye!

0:16:070:16:10

-I thought we could make a ferret.

-That's a fantastic idea.

0:16:160:16:21

-Is it out of this sock?

-Yes.

0:16:210:16:23

-First, we have to colour in three spots from here.

-Yes.

0:16:230:16:28

-You can do the eyes, which will be black, and I'll do the nose.

-OK then.

0:16:280:16:35

Are you nearly finished?

0:16:420:16:44

There.

0:16:440:16:45

-OK. Would you like me to put the sock on you?

-Yes, please.

-OK.

0:16:450:16:51

-Such a clever idea.

-Now we have to stick the nose and the eyes on.

0:16:520:16:57

The nose will go there.

0:16:570:16:59

Right. Let's do that.

0:16:590:17:02

About here?

0:17:020:17:04

-Yes.

-OK.

0:17:040:17:06

-Like that?

-Yep.

0:17:060:17:08

And then the eyes go there.

0:17:080:17:11

Were they close together or...?

0:17:130:17:15

Quite close.

0:17:150:17:18

-A bit like that, yes.

-Yes?

0:17:190:17:21

Now all we have to do is the ears.

0:17:210:17:24

-If I take this off...

-Right.

0:17:240:17:27

..you can stick the ears on, but make sure they're like that.

0:17:270:17:31

-That's how Georgina's ears were.

-OK.

0:17:310:17:34

-Slightly to the side.

-Yes.

0:17:340:17:36

Let's get some sticky tape.

0:17:360:17:39

-I'll stick this ear on and you can do the other one.

-OK.

0:17:390:17:43

OK, so now the ears are on.

0:17:440:17:47

-Now we have to do the tongue.

-OK.

0:17:470:17:50

-About here?

-Yes.

0:17:530:17:55

There we go.

0:17:560:17:58

-Now we have to do the tail.

-OK.

0:18:010:18:03

What we do for the tail...

0:18:030:18:05

-Do you want to put the sock on?

-OK.

0:18:050:18:09

SHE LAUGHS

0:18:140:18:16

Oh, that's so cool!

0:18:180:18:20

Hello! How are you doing?

0:18:200:18:22

Ah. Now it's time for this week's secret picture password.

0:18:240:18:29

I think I know what it'll be.

0:18:290:18:31

Don't you?

0:18:310:18:33

Let's see.

0:18:330:18:35

Oh, we have a ferret.

0:18:350:18:38

I think that's George. And we have a rabbit.

0:18:380:18:42

It has to be the ferret, doesn't it?

0:18:420:18:45

Is it the ferret or the rabbit?

0:18:450:18:48

You think it's the rabbit, Skip? I know you like rabbits,

0:18:500:18:55

but it has to be the ferret.

0:18:550:18:57

-SKIP WHINES

-All right, then.

0:18:570:19:00

We'll choose the rabbit for you.

0:19:000:19:02

It's right! This week's secret picture password is the rabbit.

0:19:030:19:08

How did you know that, Skip?

0:19:080:19:11

I spy some Green Balloon Club members.

0:19:110:19:14

It must be time for the Spot of the Week.

0:19:140:19:17

BOTH: Hello!

0:19:170:19:19

This week, we're spotting ivy.

0:19:190:19:23

Let's get spotting!

0:19:230:19:25

Ivy is evergreen

0:19:270:19:30

which means that it keeps its leaves all year round.

0:19:300:19:35

Look at the ivy!

0:19:350:19:37

The leaves are dark green and shiny. They are tough

0:19:370:19:42

so they can survive the winter.

0:19:420:19:45

Ivy can be poisonous, so you mustn't touch it.

0:19:450:19:49

Look! I can see ivy everywhere!

0:19:490:19:52

Look for it creeping on the ground

0:19:520:19:55

and growing up trees trunks.

0:19:550:19:58

At this time of year, the greenish-white or yellow flowers

0:19:580:20:04

appear as a cluster.

0:20:040:20:06

So, to spot ivy, remember these clues.

0:20:060:20:10

Look for the shiny green leaves.

0:20:100:20:13

Look for it crawling along the ground

0:20:130:20:16

and creeping up the sides of trees.

0:20:160:20:19

And look for the greenish-white and yellow flowers.

0:20:190:20:23

Why don't YOU spot some ivy?

0:20:230:20:27

BOTH: Bye!

0:20:270:20:29

It's been great to meet a ferret. They're so fun.

0:20:340:20:38

-I wish she was MY pet!

-It's been good having George with us today,

0:20:380:20:43

-but now we've got to take her home.

-ALL: Aww!

0:20:430:20:47

Luckily, we still have the ferret that Kat made.

0:20:470:20:51

-Oh, yes.

-Hang on! We're coming in to land!

0:20:510:20:54

And whenever we land,

0:21:000:21:03

it's time for a song!

0:21:030:21:06

# All Earth's creatures are beautiful

0:21:100:21:13

# Fill the world with colour and sound

0:21:130:21:16

# From the tapping woodpecker to the green caterpillar

0:21:160:21:18

# They all make the world go round They all make the world go round

0:21:180:21:24

# I like the feel of the furry chinchilla

0:21:250:21:28

# When he cuddles up with you

0:21:280:21:31

# And the feathers of the owl as she says,

0:21:310:21:33

# "Too wit to woo, too wit to woo

0:21:330:21:36

# There's nothing like the shell

0:21:360:21:38

# On a crab or a turtle or a snail or a tortoise

0:21:380:21:41

# Or when a worm wraps herself round your finger

0:21:410:21:46

# Paws and claws and mouths or beaks and wings

0:21:460:21:51

# We see wonder in almost everything

0:21:510:21:56

# All Earth's creatures are beautiful

0:21:560:21:59

# Fill the world with colour and sound

0:21:590:22:02

# From the tapping woodpecker to the green caterpillar

0:22:020:22:04

# They all make the world go round They all make the world go round

0:22:040:22:09

# We like to watch the slugs and the bugs

0:22:110:22:14

# And the snakes and the lizards

0:22:140:22:16

# They move so slowly and gracefully

0:22:160:22:21

# We like the hop of the bunnies and the chicks

0:22:210:22:24

# When the springtime comes

0:22:240:22:26

# And the little lady robin

0:22:260:22:29

# She goes bob, bob, bobbing through the trees

0:22:290:22:32

# Scales and tails and feathers, shells or fur

0:22:320:22:36

# We love every living creature in the world

0:22:360:22:42

# All Earth's creatures are beautiful

0:22:420:22:45

# Fill the world with colour and sound

0:22:450:22:47

# From the tapping woodpecker to the green caterpillar

0:22:470:22:50

# They all make the world go round

0:22:500:22:52

# All Earth's creatures are beautiful

0:22:520:22:55

# Fill the world with colour and sound

0:22:550:22:58

0:22:580:23:00

# They all make the world go round They all make the world go round

0:23:000:23:05

# All Earth's creatures are beautiful

0:23:050:23:08

# Fill the world with colour and sound

0:23:080:23:10

0:23:210:23:24

# They all make the world go round They all make the world go round. #

0:23:240:23:29

ALL: Bye!

0:23:380:23:40

-Look out for a speedy runner.

-Or a champion jumper.

0:23:400:23:44

-Or maybe you can meet a ferret.

-Or make one!

0:23:440:23:47

-See you next week!

-ALL: Bye!

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

The Green Team marvel at just how athletic some creatures are. Green Balloon Club members from Cardiff show what brilliant jumpers their local salmon are while the balloon is visited by a very athletic little friend: Georgina the ferret.

The Ground Crew are on a mission to find out who is the speediest - ferrets or them. Club members Sara and Indigo, set a spot which can be found in gardens, parks and countryside all across the country.

Lily-Rose makes a little ferret to play with once Georgina has to go home. And everything concludes with the Green Balloon Flying song - looking at the wonder of bird migration.
