# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

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

0:01:240:01:29

Hello, honey pie!

0:01:330:01:35

Come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:350:01:38

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

0:01:380:01:41

# Granny Murray's house is home to... #

0:01:410:01:43

Who's here today? Well,

0:01:430:01:45

I've got Megan and Sean. Don't just sit there, fruit tubes.

0:01:450:01:50

Come on, on your feet! We're going to play Charades.

0:01:500:01:55

-I know, a policeman!

-Yes!

0:01:570:01:59

A train driver...

0:02:010:02:02

with a big, big steering wheel.

0:02:020:02:05

A bus driver! That was brilliant. Well, I've got Megan,

0:02:050:02:11

and I've got Sean, but someone's missing from home today.

0:02:110:02:15

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

0:02:160:02:20

Oh, yes it's Rudi...with Jack.

0:02:200:02:24

Hello there!

0:02:240:02:26

-Rudi!

-Hi, Granny Murray.

-Hello there! And Jack.

0:02:260:02:30

Well done.

0:02:300:02:32

-There you go, Jack.

-We're miming jobs that people do in the city.

-Wow!

0:02:320:02:37

-Great!

-But now Jack's here we'll do something new.

0:02:370:02:41

Why don't you all dress Claude up as a window cleaner?

0:02:410:02:45

-And we can squidge our way over to the chairs!

-Right you are!

0:02:450:02:50

Ahh. So, you're a fan of the city, Granny Murray?

0:02:530:02:58

Oh, yes. There's always something going on in a city.

0:02:580:03:02

There's the underground trains, rattling below.

0:03:020:03:05

The big, tall buildings that soar into the sky...

0:03:050:03:09

Claude would get dizzy cleaning those windows!

0:03:090:03:12

Oh! And the city traffic!

0:03:120:03:14

-The people.

-The shops.

-The noise...

0:03:140:03:17

Oh! I love it all!

0:03:170:03:19

You never know what's gonna happen next in the city.

0:03:190:03:22

You've got to be on your toes at all times.

0:03:220:03:25

Once, when I worked in a department store,

0:03:250:03:28

I came to work one morning

0:03:280:03:31

and they were repairing the road outside my display window.

0:03:310:03:35

So, I decided to dress the dummies in the window as workmen!

0:03:350:03:40

So there were workmen in the shop window and outside.

0:03:410:03:45

-What a clever idea!

-Well, when the unexpected happens,

0:03:450:03:49

do the unexpected.

0:03:490:03:51

Oh! Look at Claude. He's ready to clean some windows.

0:03:510:03:56

-I'd best be off to work, too.

-Ahh, here.

0:03:560:04:00

Claude, you look every inch the window cleaner!

0:04:000:04:03

-Has he got his squeegee?

-He certainly has!

0:04:030:04:06

-It's a window cleaner!

-For me? My very own squeegee!

0:04:060:04:10

Well, you never know when the unexpected might happen!

0:04:120:04:16

Very true, Rudi!

0:04:160:04:18

Right, you give me a cuddle, go on! Ahhh!

0:04:180:04:22

Behave yourself! Bye, kids!

0:04:220:04:24

Come on, Rudi!

0:04:240:04:25

Now, remember, when the unexpected happens, do the unexpected.

0:04:300:04:35

-Thanks, Granny Murray. See you later!

-I'll be thinking of you!

-Me too!

0:04:350:04:41

Will you keep an eye on Rudi and make sure he goes the right way?

0:04:410:04:46

# I'm on my way to work today

0:04:510:04:56

# Walking my shoes through the city views

0:04:560:05:00

# Stepping along and swinging my arms

0:05:000:05:03

# Singing my way through the city's charms

0:05:030:05:08

# Getting there it's just so fine

0:05:080:05:12

# I so enjoy my walking time

0:05:120:05:16

# I always go the way I know

0:05:160:05:20

-# Can you tell me the way I go?

-Hey!

-#

0:05:200:05:24

OK - which way?

0:05:240:05:27

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

0:05:270:05:31

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

0:05:310:05:35

-Right!

-OK - That way! To the market.

0:05:350:05:38

# I'm on my way to work today

0:05:380:05:42

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

0:05:420:05:46

Hello, cobbles!

0:05:460:05:47

Hello, train!

0:05:470:05:50

Hello, road works!

0:05:500:05:53

Hello, tram!

0:05:530:05:55

Hello, sweeper!

0:05:550:05:57

Hello, van!

0:05:570:05:59

# He's on his way to work today

0:05:590:06:03

# Looking this way and that a-way, hey!

0:06:030:06:06

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

0:06:060:06:12

# Which way's a smile now and which way's a frown? #

0:06:120:06:15

-Up!

-What, this way?

0:06:150:06:17

# You told me the way to go

0:06:170:06:22

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

0:06:220:06:25

Thanks for that. Now what?

0:06:270:06:29

Ah, I need to put on my work clothes.

0:06:290:06:32

All dressed and ready to go!

0:06:380:06:41

Morning, Rudi! How are your bananas?

0:06:410:06:43

All the better for seeing you, Mickey John.

0:06:430:06:47

-How many?

-I think ONE will keep my energy levels up.

0:06:470:06:50

-OK, there you go. It's on the house.

-Thank you very much!

0:06:500:06:54

Are you looking after Rebecca today?

0:06:540:06:57

No, I'm teaching. I'm taking my class on a field trip.

0:06:570:07:02

Wow! Where to?

0:07:020:07:04

The city centre. I thought it'd be fun for them to see a busy city day.

0:07:040:07:08

-Certainly lots to do and see!

-I'd imagine there is!

0:07:080:07:12

And just think of all the things in the city you can't see, like...

0:07:120:07:17

-under our feet!

-Huh?! What do you mean?

0:07:170:07:20

Think about it. Under our feet, under the pavement,

0:07:200:07:24

are miles of pipe and wire, bringing gas and electricity

0:07:240:07:29

and clean water to our homes and offices.

0:07:290:07:32

Every time you flush the toilet, it goes 'Whoosh!' under our feet.

0:07:320:07:36

Wow! I wish I was coming on your city trip!

0:07:360:07:39

I tell you what, we'll pop by and say hi!

0:07:390:07:42

Better make sure my windows are clean if I'm gonna have visitors!

0:07:420:07:48

Right, bye!

0:07:480:07:49

-Rudi! You missed a spot!

-Ah, you cheeky monkey!

0:07:520:07:56

I wonder how Jack is.

0:07:580:07:59

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:08:000:08:02

# Riverseafingal by the sea

0:08:020:08:05

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:08:050:08:08

# Riverseafingal that's for me. #

0:08:080:08:10

Oh, wow! Look at that!

0:08:110:08:14

-These bin lorries are noisy, aren't they?

-It's big, isn't it?!

0:08:150:08:19

It is, Jack. Look at the big claw!

0:08:190:08:23

LORRY WHIRRS

0:08:230:08:26

Did you see the rubbish go down?

0:08:260:08:28

Oh! It's a bit stinky!

0:08:280:08:30

-Yeah!

-Ahh!

0:08:300:08:32

Oh, what a noise!

0:08:330:08:35

'What are you doing in the market, Daddy?'

0:08:360:08:40

# I was on my way to work and I drove like this, drove like this

0:08:470:08:52

# Drove like this

0:08:520:08:53

# I was on my way to work and I drove like this all day long

0:08:530:08:57

# I was on my way to work and I drove like this, drove like this,

0:08:570:09:01

# Drove like this, I was on my way to work and I drove like this,

0:09:010:09:05

# All day long. #

0:09:050:09:06

# I was on my way to work and I tickled like this, tickled like this

0:09:060:09:10

# Tickled like this

0:09:100:09:12

# I was on my way to work and I tickled like this, all day long. #

0:09:120:09:16

Oh, you're a great sport, Rudi!

0:09:180:09:21

-I'd have to be with clowns like you!

-See you later, Rudi!

0:09:210:09:25

-Bye!

-Bye! Right, back to work.

0:09:250:09:30

# Doo-bee, doo-bee-doo

0:09:300:09:32

# I make it look easy What I doo-bee, doo-bee-doo

0:09:330:09:38

# And what I do Is sell to you and you and you

0:09:380:09:43

# All of the veggies for a stew

0:09:430:09:47

# But it's more than meets the eye

0:09:480:09:51

# What I do for you

0:09:510:09:53

# As I buy and buy

0:09:530:09:56

# While you still sleep

0:09:560:09:58

# Those fruit and veg to eat

0:09:580:10:00

# And the flowers in the early hours

0:10:010:10:05

# So when wake-up comes

0:10:050:10:07

# It's there for you

0:10:070:10:10

# The market stalls are there to view

0:10:110:10:16

# Oh, the market, the market What a wonderful place

0:10:170:10:22

# The hubbub of people The smiles on each face

0:10:220:10:26

# Oh, the market, the market Come look around

0:10:260:10:31

# The hustle, the bustle The bubbles of sound

0:10:310:10:36

# The colours all chaotic, Are spilling about

0:10:360:10:39

# The smells all exotic, yeah The market cries out

0:10:390:10:44

# Objects to excite you And draw you near

0:10:440:10:49

# The buying and the selling Cheap or dear

0:10:490:10:53

# Oh, the market, the market I just love to be there

0:10:530:10:58

# The market is a wonderful place! Doo-be-da-bee-doo-bee-da-doo! #

0:10:580:11:03

-Hi, Rudi! I told you I'd be back with the children!

-So you did!

0:11:030:11:08

Hello, kids! Help yourselves to an apple.

0:11:080:11:11

Rudi, what do you reckon this is?

0:11:110:11:13

Oh...er, don't tell me, it's an elephant's pea shooter!

0:11:130:11:19

It's much more useful than that! It's a listening probe.

0:11:190:11:23

It helps people to listen for water under the ground. Try it!

0:11:230:11:28

Other way, Rudi!

0:11:280:11:30

Silly me! Ahhh.

0:11:300:11:33

WATER BUBBLES

0:11:330:11:35

Oh, wow! Hey, Mickey John, you can hear water under the ground!

0:11:350:11:39

-You have a go!

-All right.

0:11:390:11:41

-WATER BUBBLING

-I can hear it!

0:11:430:11:45

There must be a water main under your market stall.

0:11:450:11:49

-WATER WHOOSHES

-Oh dear...

0:11:490:11:51

..A puddle. Your pipe must have sprung a leak.

0:11:510:11:54

-Is that bad?

-It's not good!

0:11:540:11:57

Don't worry, I'll get my mobile phone from the school bus

0:11:570:12:01

-and phone the Water Board to send someone right away!

-Brilliant!

0:12:010:12:05

How exciting! There's a leak under my stall!

0:12:050:12:09

Hey, perhaps Jack's squeegee will come in handy, after all!

0:12:090:12:13

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

0:12:140:12:19

Oh! Will you look at that!

0:12:220:12:24

Who'd have thought washing windows was so exciting?

0:12:240:12:28

Hello there!

0:12:280:12:30

Watch you don't drop your cloths!

0:12:300:12:33

Give them a wave, boys.

0:12:330:12:35

Do you see them? Look.

0:12:350:12:37

Hello! Oh my goodness, that looks dangerous, doesn't it?

0:12:370:12:43

'Are you having fun, Daddy?'

0:12:510:12:53

Good news, Rudi.

0:12:530:12:55

The Water Board are on their way.

0:12:550:12:57

-They want us to find where the water is coming from.

-OK!

0:12:570:13:01

Any sign? BUBBLING

0:13:020:13:05

-CLANKING

-That's the spot!

0:13:050:13:07

Argh! You certainly hit the spot, Mickey John!

0:13:080:13:12

Oh! I... I mean, we... have to be getting along!

0:13:120:13:15

The parents are waiting. Sorry, Rudi!

0:13:150:13:18

But, but...what about my stall?! My leeks are getting leaked on!

0:13:180:13:23

Sorry, Rudi. Bye, bye!

0:13:230:13:26

Great! I've been working hard all day and 'Whoosh!' Everything's drenched!

0:13:260:13:32

Mickey John showed up with his elephant's pea shooter and now look!

0:13:320:13:38

Oh, where did the time go?

0:13:380:13:41

At seven o'clock I took Jack to Granny Murray's house.

0:13:410:13:45

They were playing Charades.

0:13:450:13:47

Jack helped them dress Claude as a window cleaner.

0:13:470:13:50

At eight o'clock Mickey John arrived and told me about his field trip.

0:13:500:13:56

At nine o'clock Louie and Chuck unexpectedly appeared,

0:13:560:14:00

and clowned around, as they often do when I want to start work!

0:14:000:14:04

At one o'clock Mickey John and the children arrived with a long funnel,

0:14:040:14:10

which helps you listen to water trickle below the ground.

0:14:100:14:14

Mickey John found a burst water main under my stall!

0:14:140:14:18

What am I gonna do?

0:14:180:14:20

'Now remember,

0:14:210:14:22

'when the unexpected happens, do the unexpected!'

0:14:220:14:26

When the unexpected happens, do the unexpected. Of course,

0:14:280:14:32

I've got to do the unexpected, and move my market stall

0:14:320:14:36

away from the market before it gets washed away!

0:14:360:14:39

Tina and her taxi can help. It's a race against time!

0:14:390:14:44

# I've got to do it I've got to do it

0:14:440:14:46

# I've got to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:460:14:49

# I've got to sort it I've got to sort it

0:14:490:14:52

# I've got to do the job on time

0:14:590:15:01

# Do the job that needs to be done?

0:15:010:15:04

# Will he know how to fix it?

0:15:040:15:06

# Will he finish what he has begun?

0:15:060:15:09

# Sure as we are friends he'll get there in the end

0:15:090:15:12

# He knows what he should do to work through

0:15:120:15:14

-# I'm gonna do it

# Gonna finish this job before I finish this song. #

0:15:270:15:30

Come on, folks, roll up! Every one is fresh as the rest!

0:15:300:15:34

-Get your lovely fruit and vegetables here!

-Roll up, roll up,

0:15:340:15:38

get your taxi home here!

0:15:380:15:41

While you're at it, buy a lovely apple to make the journey crisp.

0:15:410:15:46

Your day wasn't a total wash out, Rudi!

0:15:460:15:49

You can say that again, Tina.

0:15:490:15:51

Hurry back!

0:15:510:15:52

Oh, I hope you're having an exciting time like me, Jack.

0:15:520:15:57

You're working hard today, what have you found, Mr Workman?

-I've found a teddy bear...

-A teddy, just what I was looking for!

0:16:060:16:13

-..And an alarm clock...

-Brilliant!

0:16:130:16:17

..And a bucket!

0:16:170:16:18

Oh, you're fantastic, Mr Digger.

0:16:180:16:21

You fill in the hole, your dad'll be here soon.

0:16:210:16:25

'I want to be with you, Daddy.'

0:16:250:16:28

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:16:310:16:33

Rudi! Come through.

0:16:360:16:39

-Someone to see you, Jack!

-Rudi!

-Hello! Hey, give us a cuddle!

0:16:400:16:45

-Sounds like you had a great time!

-Yep!

-We certainly did!

0:16:450:16:49

-Say thanks to Granny Murray.

-Thank you!

-It's a pleasure, angel!

0:16:490:16:54

And thank you from me, too. I remembered what you said.

0:16:550:16:59

"When the unexpected happens, do the unexpected."

0:16:590:17:03

-Saved the day!

-Thanks, Rudi!

0:17:030:17:05

-Come on, you two. You'd better be off!

-Come on, mate.

0:17:050:17:10

-Bye, bye, my darlings! I look forward to next time!

-Me too!

0:17:130:17:17

-Bye!

-Let's talk about our time away!

0:17:170:17:20

I suppose you want ME to tell YOU all about MY time too!

0:17:200:17:24

# Well, there was Waving, greeting, hello, meeting

0:17:240:17:29

# Bye bye, closing, waking, dozing

0:17:290:17:30

# Eating, sleeping, fetching, sketching

0:17:300:17:32

# Painting, stretching, gluing, chewing

0:17:320:17:33

# Sticking up and wiping round

0:17:330:17:36

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:360:17:40

But what was really special about today? Well,

0:17:410:17:45

Claude was dressed as a window cleaner from the city,

0:17:450:17:49

because we were going to see the different jobs that people do.

0:17:490:17:53

We watched the busy refuse collectors empty the bins.

0:17:530:17:57

We saw window cleaners, too.

0:17:570:18:00

They were so brave, perched high outside a huge office block.

0:18:000:18:06

Jack and I were glad to keep our feet on solid ground,

0:18:060:18:10

or rather, UNDER it, in Jack's case, when he was digging in my garden.

0:18:100:18:15

Mickey John dug up some trouble for poor Rudi,

0:18:150:18:18

when he burst a water main under his stall.

0:18:180:18:22

Still, Rudi had a surprise up his sleeve to deal with the problem.

0:18:220:18:27

Nobody expected him to do that!

0:18:270:18:29

I hope you enjoyed yourself! Me too!

0:18:300:18:33

Bye, bye, honey pie!

0:18:330:18:35

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:18:410:18:43

# Riverseafingal by the sea

0:18:430:18:45

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:18:450:18:48

# Riverseafingal that's for me

0:18:480:18:50

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:18:500:18:53

# Where the ferryboat sails are blue

0:18:530:18:56

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:18:560:18:58

# She'd love to say goodbye to you... #
