0:01:240:01:29

# Me too! #

0:01:300:01:32

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

0:01:330:01:38

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

0:01:380:01:41

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

0:01:410:01:44

Who's here today?

0:01:440:01:46

Well, we've got Robbie and we've got Hope.

0:01:460:01:49

But don't just sit there, cherry buns! Let's have some fun.

0:01:490:01:53

What have we got on Granny Murray's shelves today?

0:01:530:01:58

Ooh, photographs and postcards.

0:01:580:02:01

That's fantastic!

0:02:010:02:03

How can we tell that the photographs are old?

0:02:030:02:06

-They're black and white.

-Well done. Do you know who this is?

0:02:060:02:11

This is a picture of my great-aunt Mitzi.

0:02:110:02:15

Well, we've got Hope and we've got Robbie.

0:02:160:02:19

But someone's missing from Granny Murray's today.

0:02:190:02:23

Oh, not any more! Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:240:02:28

Oh, it's Rebecca with Mickey John.

0:02:280:02:31

Hello there!

0:02:310:02:33

-Mickey John, hello.

-Hello, my darling.

0:02:340:02:38

In we come, Rebecca. That's a good girl.

0:02:390:02:43

We've been looking at old postcards and photographs. Ooh!

0:02:430:02:48

I came across a picture of my great-aunt Mitzi.

0:02:480:02:51

Here, why don't you all dress Claude up as great-aunt Mitzi?

0:02:510:02:57

That's the way!

0:02:570:02:58

-Kind sir, could you escort me to the drawing room?

-Delighted to, my lady.

0:03:000:03:04

-Oh, ha-ha!

-BOTH LAUGH

0:03:040:03:06

Oh!

0:03:130:03:14

My great-aunt Mitzi was a wonderful woman.

0:03:140:03:17

She was quite old when I knew her, not the young woman in that picture.

0:03:170:03:22

-She must've had a soft spot for you.

-Oh, she did!

0:03:220:03:25

She used to knit me a pair of socks for my birthday every single year.

0:03:250:03:30

-Really?!

-Yes.

0:03:300:03:32

I could tell how old I was by counting all the socks

0:03:320:03:36

-that my aunt had knitted for me.

-That is amazing.

0:03:360:03:39

Ever since I was a young boy, my granny has knitted me a pair of socks

0:03:390:03:44

every year for my birthday! In fact, I'm wearing a pair now.

0:03:440:03:49

-Look, there, see!

-Oh! Well, they look a bit worn.

0:03:490:03:53

It must be getting near time for your birthday.

0:03:530:03:56

-Oh!

-Do you know, when I think of the years gone by,

0:03:560:04:00

-I think of socks.

-Me too.

0:04:000:04:03

I'm taking the children to a museum today and we're going to imagine

0:04:030:04:07

what it was like to have lived 100 years ago.

0:04:070:04:10

Now that does sound like fun!

0:04:100:04:12

Ha-ha. Ooh, will you look at Claude!

0:04:120:04:16

Very pretty, Claude.

0:04:160:04:18

Well done, everyone. He looks just like my great-aunt Mitzi.

0:04:180:04:23

-Here you are.

-Oh, I can't take that, it belongs to Granny Murray.

0:04:230:04:28

No, you take that photograph and use it for your lessons.

0:04:280:04:32

-Thanks. I'd better be going. Bye-bye, beautiful girl.

-Bye.

0:04:320:04:36

-See you later.

-Come on then.

0:04:360:04:39

Now remember...

0:04:420:04:43

when I think of the years one by, I think of socks.

0:04:430:04:48

-Thank you. I'll see you later.

-We'll think of you.

-Me too!

0:04:480:04:52

Now, you keep a wee eye on Mickey John,

0:04:540:04:57

make sure he goes the right way to work.

0:04:570:04:59

I don't have much time. How can I speed across the river to work?

0:05:020:05:06

FOG HORN BLARES That's right. Thanks!

0:05:060:05:10

# I'm in-in-in-in-in-in in a hurry

0:05:100:05:13

# I need-need-need-need-need-need to speed to work

0:05:130:05:16

# I'll take-a-take-a ticket on a speedboat

0:05:160:05:19

# I be-be-be-be-be-be there quite quick

0:05:190:05:21

# Hurry, hurry, hurry down the river

0:05:210:05:25

# Splashing, splashing, splashing through the waves

0:05:250:05:27

# Whining, whining, whining drives the speed up

0:05:270:05:30

# Chugga-chugga-chugga slows us down

0:05:300:05:33

# Rocking, rocking, rocking to the dock

0:05:330:05:35

# Now splashing, splashing, splashing to our stop

0:05:350:05:38

# I'm in-in-in-in-in-in in a hurry

0:05:390:05:42

# I need-need-need-need-need-need to speed to work

0:05:420:05:44

# I'm in-in-in-in-in-in in a hurry. #

0:05:440:05:48

Hurry, hurry, hurry!

0:05:480:05:50

And hurry, hurry, hurry, put my tie on!

0:05:530:05:56

All snazzy and ready to go.

0:06:020:06:05

Hiya.

0:06:070:06:08

Morning, Bobby. I see you've brought me some old clothes

0:06:080:06:12

for my lesson today. Thank you. Let's have a looksie!

0:06:120:06:16

Look at this dress. It belonged to my mum. It's 30 years old!

0:06:160:06:21

-What must your mum have looked like!

-Never mind that, look at these.

0:06:210:06:25

-They're from my dad's old wardrobe.

-Flaretastic!

0:06:250:06:29

They wore their trousers wide in those days!

0:06:290:06:32

-Your class will be here soon so I'd better get off.

-OK, thanks.

0:06:320:06:36

-Bye.

-See you.

-BELL RINGS

0:06:360:06:38

Nine o'clock. I wonder if Rebecca's on her way to the museum yet.

0:06:380:06:42

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:06:420:06:48

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

0:06:480:06:54

Look at the old cases. Do you see?

0:07:060:07:09

Look at the old milk churn as well. They're very, very old.

0:07:110:07:15

Come and see what's in here.

0:07:150:07:17

Oh, look!

0:07:170:07:19

An old waiting room. Oh, look at the hard seats they had to sit down.

0:07:200:07:27

Look at the old fireplace. This is a lovely wee room.

0:07:270:07:31

Now, let's go and see what else we can find.

0:07:310:07:34

'What are you doing in school, Daddy?'

0:07:400:07:43

Let's have a look at these. These are good, aren't they?

0:07:470:07:51

Excellent, a nice blue jumper there, and purple gloves!

0:07:510:07:55

Everything's moving along quickly this morning.

0:07:550:07:58

The children are coming up with some ideas for a new school uniform.

0:07:580:08:02

They're working hard, and so am I!

0:08:020:08:05

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

0:09:290:09:34

That's all your work collected. BELL RINGS

0:09:340:09:38

Oh, that's lunch time. Off you go.

0:09:380:09:41

-Hi, Tina.

-Check out all this booty!

0:09:440:09:48

Loads of costumes from the store and all for you!

0:09:480:09:52

-This will really help out with my lesson.

-It certainly will.

0:09:520:09:56

Ooh, ooh, look at this.

0:09:560:09:59

Ooh, ooh, and how about this?

0:09:590:10:02

Raymond loves this.

0:10:060:10:08

I'm not quite sure what period of history you're coming from.

0:10:080:10:13

-Let me think.

-Don't be silly. These are all parts of different outfits.

0:10:130:10:19

-But you knew that, right?

-Yeah, yeah, of course.

0:10:190:10:22

I'll be back this afternoon

0:10:220:10:24

and Raymond will be here in a minute to help you out.

0:10:240:10:28

-See you later then.

-Cheerie!

0:10:280:10:30

I do have lot to sort out. Maybe the picture Rebecca gave me

0:10:340:10:38

this morning will inspire me.

0:10:380:10:40

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

0:10:420:10:49

Ooh, look!

0:10:510:10:53

Look at this train go by. Look at the big steam engine.

0:10:530:10:56

Wave everyone, wave! Hello!

0:10:560:10:59

I bet your daddy would love that.

0:11:020:11:05

'I'm thinking of you, Daddy.'

0:11:100:11:12

-All ready to go?

-Ah, Raymond. I think I've got everything sorted out.

0:11:120:11:17

-Come on then, give it your best shot.

-Here goes...

0:11:170:11:21

I'm going to tell you about the different clothes people wore

0:11:210:11:24

over the last 100 years. For example, 40 years ago,

0:11:240:11:28

a young man might've worn a pair of winkle pickers.

0:11:280:11:31

That's another name for shoes like this. They're pointy!

0:11:310:11:35

-And 30 years ago, a woman might've worn a dress like this.

-Ooh!

0:11:350:11:40

Well, 100 years ago, people wore these.

0:11:400:11:44

-Now these are called spats...

-Wait a minute. When was this again?

0:11:440:11:48

-About 100 years ago.

-Was that before or after the pointy shoes?

-Before.

0:11:480:11:53

I hope you don't mind me saying so, but this is a bit muddled.

0:11:530:11:58

I haven't a clue what clothes are from when.

0:11:580:12:01

I suppose it is a bit muddled.

0:12:010:12:03

I've been working hard all day long to make my lesson fun and simple.

0:12:030:12:08

But why is it all mixed up? Where did the time go?

0:12:080:12:11

At eight o'clock, I took Rebecca to visit Granny Murray.

0:12:120:12:16

Granny Murray told me all about her great-aunt Mitzi.

0:12:160:12:20

She used to knit Granny Murray socks for her birthday every year.

0:12:200:12:25

I was wearing my birthday socks this morning and I showed them to her.

0:12:250:12:30

When I got at school, Bobby stopped by with clothes her parents wore.

0:12:300:12:34

They were rather strange.

0:12:340:12:36

At nine o'clock, the school day started,

0:12:380:12:40

and the children imagined how their uniform might look in the future.

0:12:400:12:45

At 12 o'clock, Tina came to class with lots of old-fashioned clothes.

0:12:450:12:51

I was going through the old clothes when Raymond popped in.

0:12:510:12:55

The answer was not very well.

0:12:550:12:58

100 years is a long time to think about and I got rather muddled up.

0:12:580:13:03

Now remember, when I think of the years gone by,

0:13:040:13:08

I think of socks.

0:13:080:13:10

Granny Murray was given socks for her birthday every year.

0:13:110:13:15

If she added them all up, she could find out her age.

0:13:150:13:19

That's given me an idea for showing how the time has gone by.

0:13:190:13:23

But can I do it in time for this afternoon?

0:13:230:13:26

It's a race against time!

0:13:260:13:28

# I gotta do it, I gotta do it

0:13:280:13:30

# I gotta beat the clock before the chime

0:13:300:13:33

# I gotta sort it, I gotta sort it

0:13:330:13:36

# I gotta do the job on time

0:13:360:13:38

# Like a busy bee I'm gonna beat that clock

0:13:380:13:41

# I'm gonna finish this job before I finish this song

0:13:410:13:43

# Do we think he's gonna do it?

0:13:430:13:46

# Do the job that needs to be done

0:13:460:13:48

# Will he know how to fix it?

0:13:480:13:50

# Will he finish what he has begun?

0:13:500:13:53

# We are friends, he'll get there in the end

0:13:530:13:56

-# Because he knows what he should do

-I'm gonna do it

0:13:560:13:59

# He's gonna do it!

0:13:590:14:00

# I'm gonna beat the clock before the chime

0:14:000:14:03

-# I'm gonna sort it

-He's gonna sort it

0:14:030:14:05

# I'm gonna do the job on time

0:14:050:14:07

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that gong

0:14:070:14:11

# I'm going to finish this job before I finish this song. #

0:14:110:14:15

I'm going to tell you about the different clothing

0:14:150:14:18

people have worn over the last 100 years.

0:14:180:14:20

Now, 100 years is a long time. So, to help you think about that,

0:14:200:14:25

I've strung up 100 socks.

0:14:250:14:28

Every sock is one year.

0:14:280:14:31

Now, some of you have brothers and sisters who are four.

0:14:310:14:34

So that's, er...

0:14:340:14:36

one, two, three...that's here.

0:14:360:14:39

And some of you are seven...

0:14:390:14:41

which is here.

0:14:410:14:43

And I was born 35 years ago...

0:14:430:14:46

..which is here.

0:14:480:14:49

But I want to take you back all the way down here

0:14:490:14:53

before you and I, or even your grans and grandfathers were born.

0:14:530:14:57

100 years ago, when a country gentleman may have looked like this.

0:14:570:15:03

Good day, sir. Here I am. All ready for a walk in the park...

0:15:030:15:08

100 socks ago... I mean 100 years ago!

0:15:080:15:13

Toodle pip!

0:15:130:15:14

What a jolly man!

0:15:140:15:16

Right, let's go forward a few years to here - 70 years ago today.

0:15:160:15:21

I wonder what sort of clothes people wore then.

0:15:210:15:25

What ho! Anyone for tennis?

0:15:250:15:27

If you were playing tennis 70 years ago,

0:15:270:15:30

you might have worn something like this.

0:15:300:15:33

Tally ho!

0:15:330:15:35

Right, let's go forward again to 40 years ago.

0:15:350:15:38

Well, what do you think of this gear, then?

0:15:380:15:42

From 40 socks ago. Ho-ho! I mean years ago.

0:15:420:15:45

Maybe your granddad dressed like this to look smart

0:15:450:15:48

and stand out in a crowd. See you later, mate. Gotta run.

Right, let's see one more person from the past,

0:15:520:15:57

this time from 30 years ago.

0:15:570:16:00

Hello, darlin'!

0:16:000:16:02

-Wow! What a lot of, er...dress!

-D'you like it?

0:16:020:16:06

I feel a bit like a clown with different colours.

0:16:060:16:10

Tara, darlings!

0:16:100:16:12

What a lot of interesting clothes we've worn over the last 100 years!

0:16:120:16:17

I hope Rebecca's having as much fun as I am.

0:16:220:16:25

Oh, Rebecca!

0:16:310:16:34

You look lovely in that bonnet.

0:16:340:16:36

Just think, 100 years ago, all girls your age would wear one of those.

0:16:360:16:41

Och, I wonder what Dad would make of it.

0:16:410:16:45

BELL RINGS

0:16:450:16:46

-Mickey John!

-All right, Granny Murray.

-Come away through.

0:16:550:16:59

Look who's here, Rebecca.

0:16:590:17:01

-Hello, beautiful girl!

-Hello, Daddy.

-Have you had a lovely time?

0:17:010:17:05

You bet we have!

0:17:050:17:07

-Say thank you to Granny Murray.

-Oh, my big girl! Clever girl!

0:17:070:17:12

Thanks from me too, Granny Murray. Your saying,

0:17:120:17:15

"When I think of the years gone by, I think of socks" saved the day.

0:17:150:17:20

Well, it never did!

0:17:200:17:22

Come on, let's get you home.

0:17:220:17:24

-Looking forward to next time.

-Me too!

0:17:270:17:30

Come on, let's chat about our time away.

0:17:300:17:33

I suppose you'll want me to tell you all about my time too.

0:17:330:17:37

# Well, there was...

0:17:370:17:40

# Waving, greeting, hello, meeting

0:17:400:17:42

# Waking, dozing, eating, sleeping

0:17:420:17:44

# Singing, swinging, walking, hiding

0:17:440:17:46

# Jumping up and turning round

0:17:460:17:49

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:490:17:52

But what was really special about today?

0:17:530:17:57

Well, Claude was dressed as my Aunt Mitzi

0:17:570:18:00

because we were looking at what people wore 100 years ago.

0:18:000:18:05

We can see what clothes she wore by looking at an old photograph.

0:18:050:18:10

I told Mickey John all about my favourite auntie.

0:18:100:18:14

She used to knit me socks every year for my birthday.

0:18:140:18:18

Mickey John told me his granny used to do the same for him.

0:18:180:18:21

But there was a hole in his socks because they were old.

0:18:210:18:25

I took the children to a museum

0:18:250:18:27

where we tried to imagine what life was like 100 years ago.

0:18:270:18:32

And Rebecca put on a bonnet

0:18:320:18:34

Mickey John explained to his class about olden times

0:18:340:18:38

by looking at lots of socks.

0:18:380:18:40

I hope you enjoyed yourself.

0:18:400:18:42

Me too! Bye-bye, honey pie!

0:18:420:18:45

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:18:450:18:50

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

0:18:500:18:55

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:18:550:18:57

# Where the ferryboat sails are blue

0:18:570:19:00

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:19:000:19:02

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

0:19:020:19:07

Mickey John wants to show the children how things have changed since he was a boy. Tina and Raymond help him do a presentation to the school about clothes over the past 100 years - using 100 pairs of socks.
