# Come on and get down to the city where the trains all clatter through

0:00:020:00:07

# Hey, look at that driver driving I wanna ride that train of blue

# All those people busy working I wanna see what they all do

0:00:170:00:22

# Let's weave round the market Do you hear that hullabaloo?

0:00:220:00:27

# Everybody's busy selling Come on, buy me something new

0:00:270:00:32

# Look through the arches under the station

0:00:320:00:36

# Down where the pigeons perch and coo

0:00:360:00:40

# I take a taxi ride to the river I wanna drive down the avenue

0:00:400:00:44

# Hey, look at those buses gleaming They look so clean and spanking-new

0:00:440:00:50

# All lined up to drive around the city, ting that bell, toodle-oo

0:00:500:00:55

# I'm gonna ride round to the school where the children hurry through

0:00:550:01:01

# Sit down, the teacher's teaching I'd love to learn a thing or two

0:01:010:01:06

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea... #

0:01:060:01:11

Seven o'clock!

0:01:110:01:13

# Riverseafingal, that's for me

0:01:130:01:16

# Come on, get on down to the city where the ferryboat sails through

0:01:160:01:21

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:210:01:24

# She'd love to say hello to you-ou-ou... #

0:01:240:01:29

Me too!

0:01:290:01:32

Hello, honey pie! Come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:330:01:38

# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play, it's home to... #

0:01:380:01:44

Who's here today?

0:01:440:01:46

We've got Rachel and we've got Sean.

0:01:460:01:49

But don't just sit there, piggles. Come on, let's get busy!

0:01:490:01:53

We'll play the underground train game. The train will stop at...

0:01:530:01:58

The castle! Choo-choo!

0:01:580:02:02

The bridge. Choo-choo!

0:02:020:02:05

We've got Sean and we've got Rachel,

0:02:050:02:09

but someone's missing from home today.

0:02:090:02:13

Not any more. Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:130:02:17

Yes, it's Rebecca with Mickey John.

0:02:170:02:20

Hello there.

0:02:200:02:22

Hello, Mickey John.

0:02:230:02:26

What's all this running around?

0:02:300:02:33

We've been playing a sort of underground train game.

0:02:330:02:37

These are all the stops on the Riverseafingal underground.

0:02:370:02:41

I love maps. I sometimes snuggle up in bed with a nice map.

0:02:410:02:46

Well, now Rebecca's here, we'll do something new.

0:02:460:02:50

We're going on an underground train later,

0:02:500:02:54

so let's dress Claude up as an underground train driver.

0:02:540:02:58

-We can squeeze on down and take a seat. Excuse me!

-Mind your back!

0:02:580:03:04

-So, you like maps?

-Oh, absolutely. All sorts of maps.

0:03:060:03:11

Last week, I found an old map of Riverseafingal.

0:03:110:03:15

-Did the city look different?

-Yes, it showed how it looked long ago.

0:03:150:03:20

-Before my school was even built.

-Fancy that!

0:03:200:03:25

I want to take the children to see something I remember from long ago.

0:03:250:03:29

It's called the Camera Obscura.

0:03:290:03:32

You can see the whole city!

0:03:320:03:34

I saw it when I was a little girl and I thought it was fascinating.

0:03:340:03:40

I'm not sure how to explain how it works to the children.

0:03:400:03:44

It's fairly simple really.

0:03:440:03:47

It's to do with the way the mirrors shine on to the convex lens.

0:03:470:03:51

Stop! I don't want to know that.

0:03:510:03:54

We'll let the children see for themselves.

0:03:540:03:58

-Your underground driver is ready to take you there.

-Good old Claude.

0:03:580:04:03

Very smart.

0:04:050:04:07

Mind the doors! Well, I'd better be going.

0:04:070:04:11

-Daddy...

-It's an underground map of Riverseafingal.

0:04:110:04:15

Thanks, Rebecca.

0:04:150:04:18

-Have fun at the Camera Obscura. Bye then.

-Come on.

0:04:180:04:22

Now, remember, let them see for themselves.

0:04:250:04:29

-Thank you, Granny Murray. Bye.

-Bye. We'll be thinking of you.

-Me too.

0:04:290:04:34

Keep a wee eye on Mickey John, so he goes the right way to work.

0:04:350:04:41

# I'm on my way to work today

0:04:450:04:49

# Walking my shoes through the city views

0:04:490:04:52

# I'm stepping along and swinging my arms

0:04:520:04:57

# Singing my way through the city's charms

0:04:570:05:01

# Getting there is just so fine

0:05:010:05:06

# I so enjoy my walking time

0:05:060:05:10

# I always go the way I know

0:05:100:05:14

# Can you show me the way I go...? #

0:05:140:05:17

OK. Which way?

0:05:170:05:20

# Do I go left now? Do I go right?

0:05:200:05:24

-# Which way is wrong now? Which way is right?

-Right! #

0:05:240:05:29

OK, right to the school.

0:05:290:05:32

# I'm on my way to work today

0:05:320:05:36

# Looking this way and that-a-way... #

0:05:360:05:39

Hello, alley. Hello, doors.

0:05:400:05:44

Hello, steeple. Hello, walls.

0:05:440:05:48

Hello, people!

0:05:490:05:51

# He's on his way to work today

0:05:520:05:57

# Looking this way and that-a-way Hey!

0:05:570:06:01

# Do I go up now? Do I go down?

0:06:010:06:05

# Which way's a smile now? Which way's a frown...? #

0:06:050:06:09

-Up!

-OK, that way - up.

0:06:090:06:12

# You told me the way to go

0:06:120:06:15

# Thank you, you showed me the way I know... #

0:06:150:06:18

Thanks for that.

0:06:180:06:21

Now, what have I got to do? That's right, time for a tie.

0:06:230:06:28

All dressed and ready to go.

0:06:320:06:35

I'm really looking forward to today's lesson.

0:06:350:06:39

-All right, Mickey John?

-Hi, Bobby.

-Have you got a matt I can borrow?

0:06:390:06:45

I've got loads of them. That's what I'm teaching a lesson about today.

0:06:450:06:50

See? Loads of different maps.

0:06:500:06:52

Look, we've got road maps, a map of countries, a map of the world.

0:06:520:06:58

No, I didn't ask for a map.

0:06:590:07:02

I asked for a matt for a gymnastics display I'm teaching later on.

0:07:020:07:07

Sorry, Bobby. I've got maps on the brain today. Hang on.

0:07:070:07:12

I've got just the thing in my cupboard.

0:07:120:07:16

-Will this do?

-Perfect. Thanks. I'll bring it back later.

0:07:180:07:23

I wonder if you're on your way to the Camera Obscura yet, Becks?

0:07:230:07:28

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:07:280:07:33

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal, that's for me... #

0:07:330:07:40

It's so exciting. That's it now, stand back.

0:07:470:07:51

Good girl. Rebecca, come and sit here, darling, with Granny Murray.

0:07:520:07:58

Chugga-ga-chug, chugga-ga-chug, whoo-whoo!

0:08:010:08:05

Chugga-ga-chug, chugga-ga-chug, chugga-ga-chug, whoo-whoo!

0:08:050:08:10

BELL RINGS 'What are you doing now, Daddy?'

0:08:170:08:20

The school bell! I better clear these maps away.

0:08:200:08:24

I don't want to spoil the surprise.

0:08:240:08:27

-Mohammad?

-Here.

-Leanne?

-Here.

0:08:280:08:31

-Monica?

-Here.

-And Efra?

-Here.

0:08:310:08:35

Good morning, everyone.

0:08:350:08:38

ALL: Good morning, Mickey John.

0:08:380:08:41

I've got something exciting to show you today.

0:08:410:08:46

Something really exciting. Something absolutely incredible.

0:08:460:08:50

-But I've hidden it away for now.

-ALL: Aw!

0:08:500:08:54

First we have to do some hard work.

0:08:540:08:57

# Oh, I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning

0:08:570:09:02

# Teaching with my chums and seeing the children learning

0:09:020:09:06

# School day, work away

0:09:060:09:09

# I'm learning, learning, learning when I'm teaching

0:09:090:09:13

# I'm teaching, learning, teaching, learning, teaching

0:09:130:09:17

# School day, work away

0:09:170:09:20

# Teaching to count and to read Learn about birds, plants and seeds

0:09:200:09:25

# Playing games outdoors, keeping the scores

0:09:250:09:28

# School day, work away

0:09:280:09:31

# I'm learning, learning when I'm teaching

0:09:310:09:34

# We're learning, learning when he's teaching

0:09:340:09:37

# School day, work away

0:09:370:09:41

# Oh, the secretary's filing as she does her organising

0:09:410:09:45

# The jannie fixes, the cookie mixes, the cleaner keeps us shining

0:09:450:09:49

# I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning

0:09:490:09:53

# I join the dinner queue, the cookie serves the stew

0:09:530:09:56

# Answering where and why, how does it work and how does it fly?

0:09:560:10:00

# School day, work away

0:10:000:10:03

# I'm learning, learning when I'm teaching

0:10:030:10:06

# We're learning, learning when he's teaching

0:10:060:10:11

# School day, work away

0:10:110:10:14

# The children keep an eye on me as they try their writing

0:10:140:10:17

# I take a look, I mark their books, the good ones get a smiley

0:10:170:10:23

# I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning... #

0:10:230:10:27

Well done, everyone. You've all worked really hard.

0:10:270:10:31

I'll give you that special treat I told you about earlier.

0:10:310:10:35

-I'm gonna tell you all about...

-MAKES TRUMPET SOUND

0:10:350:10:39

Maps! Now, maps can tell you loads of things.

0:10:390:10:44

And this is a brilliant map.

0:10:440:10:47

This is a map of Fingal Hill. You can see the city from there.

0:10:490:10:53

There's the path that goes all the way down the mountain.

0:10:530:10:58

These contour lines show the shape of the hill.

0:10:580:11:02

Isn't that fascinating...? You have no idea what I'm talking about?

0:11:020:11:07

Not to worry. I'll be talking more about maps. Isn't that exciting...?

0:11:070:11:12

-BELL RINGS

-Lunchtime. Off you go!

0:11:120:11:17

That's funny. My class don't seem very interested in my map.

0:11:180:11:22

I hope Rebecca's more enthusiastic about the Camera Obscura.

0:11:220:11:27

Oh, here we are at the Camera Obscura. It's so exciting!

0:11:360:11:41

We're in for a real treat.

0:11:410:11:43

You can see all of Riverseafingal -

0:11:460:11:48

the people, the cars.

0:11:480:11:51

So alive and busy!

0:11:510:11:54

-Look, dumplings, do you like the Camera Obscura?

-Yes.

0:11:540:11:58

-It's fabulous, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:11:580:12:01

-Oh, Rebecca, your dad would love it here, wouldn't he?

-Yeah.

0:12:010:12:06

'I'm thinking of you, Daddy.'

0:12:060:12:09

-Me again. I've brought back your "map".

-Eh? Oh, the matt! Yes.

0:12:150:12:20

-Sorry about the mix-up earlier. How did your gym class go?

-Brilliantly.

0:12:200:12:25

The children loved it when I did a back flip. They were very interested.

0:12:250:12:30

-I wish my class were interested in my lesson.

-What was it about?

-Maps.

0:12:300:12:35

They're fascinating. Take this map of Fingal Hill.

0:12:350:12:39

-It's incredible. You can see the path marked.

-Right.

0:12:390:12:43

-What are all those squiggly lines?

-Contour lines.

0:12:430:12:47

When they're close together, that means the hill is very steep,

0:12:470:12:52

but when they're further apart, it means the hill is not so steep.

0:12:520:12:57

That is incredibly interesting.

0:12:570:13:00

Well, for you maybe, but I don't really see it.

0:13:000:13:04

Anyway, thanks for the matt. I'll catch you later.

0:13:040:13:08

What's wrong with everyone? I love maps, but nobody else seems to.

0:13:090:13:14

Why is no-one else as excited as me? Where did the time go?

0:13:140:13:19

At seven, I dropped Rebecca off at Granny Murray's house.

0:13:190:13:23

They were playing the underground game,

0:13:230:13:27

so the children dressed Claude as a train driver.

0:13:270:13:30

Granny Murray was taking them to the Camera Obscura.

0:13:300:13:35

I began to explain how it works.

0:13:350:13:37

At eight o'clock, I got to work.

0:13:370:13:40

Bobby popped in and I thought she wanted a map.

0:13:400:13:44

I heard wrong. She wanted a matt for her gym class demonstration.

0:13:440:13:49

At nine, my class came in and I told them I had a treat for them.

0:13:490:13:53

11 o'clock was treat time. I showed them my map of Fingal Hill

0:13:530:13:58

with its amazing contour lines, but the class just looked bored.

0:13:580:14:03

At 12, Bobby wasn't interested in the map either.

0:14:030:14:08

How can I make my map more interesting for my class?

0:14:080:14:13

Now, remember, let them see for themselves.

0:14:140:14:18

Hmm. Let them see for themselves.

0:14:180:14:20

The children can't get excited about the map

0:14:200:14:24

because they don't know what it's a picture of.

0:14:240:14:28

I'll show them it's a picture of a real hill. It's a race against time.

0:14:280:14:33

# I've got to do it, I've got to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:330:14:38

# I've got to sort it, I've got to do the job on time

0:14:380:14:43

# I'll beat that bong, I'll finish this job before I finish this song

0:14:430:14:49

# Do we think he's gonna do it, do the job that needs to be done?

0:14:490:14:53

# Will he know how to fix it? Will he finish what he has begun?

0:14:530:14:58

# He knows what he should do and he'll work it through

0:14:580:15:03

-# I'm gonna do it!

-Do it!

-I'm gonna beat the clock before the chime

0:15:030:15:08

-# I'm gonna sort it!

-Sort it!

-I'm gonna do the job on time

0:15:080:15:13

# I'll beat that bong, I'll finish the job before I finish this song! #

0:15:130:15:19

Right, class, I hope you're ready to hear a lot more about maps.

0:15:190:15:24

I've got a brilliant way to make it more interesting.

0:15:240:15:28

So, I've made a model of how Fingal Hill looks in real life.

0:15:280:15:34

The hill is very steep here but not so steep here. Look at these lines.

0:15:340:15:39

When the lines are close together, the hill is very steep,

0:15:390:15:43

-but when they're further apart, it's not so steep. Exciting?

-Yes!

0:15:430:15:48

Oh, look! Here's a little railway train.

0:15:480:15:52

Going through the mountain... It'll go through and round the other side.

0:15:530:15:59

Ah! I wonder what you're up to, Rebecca?

0:16:000:16:04

You two, hold hands. That's us. Let's keep ourselves safe.

0:16:090:16:14

OK... Right, stop.

0:16:160:16:18

Wait there.

0:16:180:16:21

Rebecca... Good girl. And up this way, holding Granny Murray's hands.

0:16:210:16:27

'I miss you, Daddy.'

0:16:270:16:29

Mickey John, come away through.

0:16:360:16:39

-Look who's here, Rebecca.

-Hello, beautiful girl. Hey! How are you?

0:16:390:16:44

-Have you had a lovely time?

-You bet!

-Say thank you to Granny Murray.

0:16:440:16:50

-Come here, my darling.

-And thanks from me too, Granny Murray.

0:16:500:16:54

-Your saying "let them see for themselves" saved the day.

-Never?

0:16:540:16:59

Come on now. You'd better be off.

0:16:590:17:03

-Looking forward to next time!

-Me too!

0:17:030:17:06

Let's chat about our time away.

0:17:060:17:09

I suppose you'll want ME to tell YOU all about my time too!

0:17:090:17:14

# There was hugging, squishing, walking, dancing, dusting, talking

0:17:140:17:20

# Cooking, drying, cleaning, laughing, joking

0:17:200:17:22

# Losing things and rushing round

0:17:220:17:25

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:250:17:28

But what was really special about today?

0:17:290:17:33

Well, Claude was dressed as an underground train driver

0:17:330:17:37

because we were going on an underground train later.

0:17:370:17:41

Mickey John dropped off Rebecca and told me how he loved maps.

0:17:410:17:46

When I told him we were going to the Camera Obscura,

0:17:460:17:50

he tried to explain how they work.

0:17:500:17:53

I didn't understand a word he said.

0:17:530:17:56

The underground train was very exciting and very noisy.

0:17:560:18:00

The Camera Obscura looked amazing.

0:18:000:18:03

We saw a bird's-eye view of the city reflected on to a table.

0:18:030:18:08

It looked magic. When Mickey John came to pick up Rebecca,

0:18:080:18:12

he said he was glad he remembered to let his class see for themselves.

0:18:120:18:17

His map lesson was more interesting,

0:18:170:18:20

so today, everyone could see for themselves.

0:18:200:18:25

I hope you enjoyed yourself. Me too. Bye-bye, honey pie!

0:18:250:18:30

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:18:360:18:41
