# Hello, my name is Mr Bloom

0:00:050:00:07

# And I'd like to come to see you soon

0:00:070:00:10

# I'm out on the road, you see

0:00:100:00:12

# Here and there

0:00:120:00:13

# So that we can get together and have some fun

0:00:130:00:17

# I'll help you out if there's work to be done

0:00:190:00:22

# So where is it you like to go?

0:00:230:00:26

# Call me up and let me know

0:00:260:00:29

# What is it you like to do?

0:00:290:00:31

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:00:310:00:34

# Cities, towns, the countryside

0:00:340:00:36

# I can travel far and wide

0:00:360:00:38

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:00:380:00:41

# I'm here and there. #

0:00:410:00:43

Hey, hello there, tiddlers! How are you tiddling?

0:00:530:00:56

Oh, Mr Bloom here.

0:00:560:00:57

I like going out and about.

0:00:570:00:59

Yeah, I like going here and there, doing lots of fun things

0:00:590:01:03

and finding out about new places.

0:01:030:01:05

And I've been wondering, what do you like to do where you live?

0:01:050:01:09

Perhaps you might like to do a spot of horse-riding

0:01:090:01:12

or maybe a bit of gardening like me.

0:01:120:01:14

Someone's got in touch! Hey, shall we see who it is?

0:01:140:01:18

Hello, Mr Bloom. My name's Giuseppe and I live near the seaside.

0:01:200:01:25

I love coming to the beach.

0:01:290:01:32

I love paddling in the waves.

0:01:320:01:34

And eating ice cream.

0:01:360:01:38

Bubble gum's my favourite flavour!

0:01:380:01:42

My name is Anna-Rose. I love the beach, too.

0:01:480:01:51

Ah, I got wet!

0:01:550:01:57

'I like to play lots of different games.'

0:01:570:02:00

We love coming here, Mr Bloom.

0:02:020:02:05

We're sure you would, too.

0:02:050:02:07

-BOTH:

-Please come for a visit.

0:02:100:02:13

Hey, well, that'd be grand!

0:02:130:02:15

Best be on my way then.

0:02:150:02:17

# Whereabouts will I end up next?

0:02:240:02:27

# Let's put my route finder to the test

0:02:290:02:31

# It could be a beach, a village or a city

0:02:330:02:36

# Museum or a school, a garden so pretty

0:02:360:02:38

# A church, a station, a river or town

0:02:380:02:40

# I just can't wait till you show me around

0:02:400:02:43

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way

0:02:430:02:47

# So where am I today? #

0:02:470:02:50

HE WHISTLES

0:03:050:03:08

Hey, now, I do like to be beside the seaside.

0:03:080:03:12

And on a day like this, I'm glad I've got my hat.

0:03:120:03:15

Also, I've got my suntan lotion so I'm ready to go.

0:03:150:03:19

I just need to find Giuseppe and Anna-Rose.

0:03:190:03:22

Oh, there they are!

0:03:220:03:23

And it looks to me like they're building a sand castle.

0:03:230:03:27

Hey, hello!

0:03:270:03:28

Hey, I can skip with it!

0:03:340:03:36

Hey, hello there, tiddlers. Hello, grown-ups.

0:03:380:03:41

-Hello, Mr Bloom.

-Hello, Mr Bloom.

0:03:410:03:43

It's nice to see you here today on the beach.

0:03:430:03:46

And look at this sand castle! It's fantastic, that.

0:03:460:03:49

-What's that in the middle?

-A swimming pool.

-A swimming pool?!

0:03:490:03:53

Oh, very nice! I think I can see some slides as well.

0:03:530:03:56

Yeah, that's a climbing frame and a swimming pool.

0:03:560:03:59

Hey, now we're talking!

0:03:590:04:01

Giuseppe, what are those shells for?

0:04:010:04:04

They're special mirrors.

0:04:040:04:05

All sand castles need special mirrors. Fantastic!

0:04:050:04:08

And where did you get those shells from?

0:04:080:04:11

We were collecting them in the rock pools, all of us were.

0:04:110:04:15

We go seashore safari.

0:04:150:04:17

A safari. That's like a journey,

0:04:170:04:19

where you go looking for lots of animals.

0:04:190:04:21

Who do you go on safaris with?

0:04:210:04:23

We went with an expert called Judith.

0:04:230:04:26

Well, de-bulb my daffodils!

0:04:260:04:28

That sounds a bit exciting.

0:04:280:04:30

Do you reckon we could go on a seashore safari today? Yeah?

0:04:300:04:34

Well, all we need do

0:04:340:04:35

is we just need to wait for the tide to go out a bit

0:04:350:04:38

so that it leaves the sea in the rock pools.

0:04:380:04:41

-So where do you think we could find Judith?

-Over there.

0:04:410:04:44

Hey, well, that sounds good to me. Let's go meet her.

0:04:440:04:48

Wow, look at all the rock pools the sea has left behind!

0:04:550:04:59

-There's lots to explore.

-There's Judith!

-Oh, you're right.

0:04:590:05:03

-Shall we go and see what she's found?

-Yes!

0:05:050:05:08

-Right then, see you later, grown-ups.

-Bye.

0:05:080:05:11

It's important to go rock pooling with a grown-up.

0:05:150:05:18

They can tell you when the tide is out

0:05:180:05:20

and when it will come back in.

0:05:200:05:22

You have to wear sturdy shoes, too,

0:05:220:05:25

ones that can get a bit wet.

0:05:250:05:27

The rocks are covered in seaweed and can get quite slippery

0:05:270:05:31

so make sure you step carefully.

0:05:310:05:33

-Hey, so you must be Judith?

-Yes.

0:05:360:05:39

-And who have we got here?

-I'm Tristan.

-I'm Laura.

0:05:390:05:42

We are on a rock pool safari.

0:05:420:05:46

Oh, safari, so goody!!

0:05:460:05:48

Judith, these tiddlers

0:05:480:05:50

have been telling me about these rock pools.

0:05:500:05:53

What might we find?

0:05:530:05:54

If we turn over some of these boulders,

0:05:540:05:56

we might find some tiny creatures called little brittle stars.

0:05:560:06:01

-They sound exciting, don't they?

-There's one.

0:06:010:06:04

I'm just going to put it into this bucket

0:06:040:06:07

so that we can have a closer look.

0:06:070:06:10

Ah! If you didn't know what you're looking for, you might miss it.

0:06:100:06:14

Do you see it as well?

0:06:140:06:16

Oh, this little fella is really small,

0:06:160:06:19

but the route finder's showing us one that's bigger.

0:06:190:06:22

Oh, and this fella is even bigger than that!

0:06:230:06:26

So if you look here, there's quite a hard, curly white thing.

0:06:280:06:34

Can you see that? It's called a keel worm.

0:06:340:06:37

And what it is is the tube of a worm.

0:06:370:06:41

And it's made this hard tube and it's living inside it.

0:06:410:06:44

And when the tide comes in,

0:06:440:06:46

the worm will stick his head out the end there

0:06:460:06:49

and put out tentacles that grab little particles of food.

0:06:490:06:53

The tiddlers set off to look for more creatures

0:06:560:06:59

where Judith said it was safe to go.

0:06:590:07:01

Back at the big rock pool, Judith has found something else.

0:07:040:07:08

On the rocks, we've got some big sea snails, here.

0:07:080:07:13

They are common limpets.

0:07:130:07:15

This animal, at the moment, is clamped down on the rock

0:07:150:07:18

and at high tide, when the tide comes rushing in here,

0:07:180:07:21

it'll let go, go for a little walk around

0:07:210:07:24

about three feet away from where it lives

0:07:240:07:27

and it will be eating young seaweed on the rocks.

0:07:270:07:30

Then it will go back to exactly the same place it started off from.

0:07:300:07:35

And on the rock, now and again,

0:07:350:07:38

you'll see this bare patch.

0:07:380:07:39

Can you see any over your side?

0:07:390:07:41

Is there a bare patch, a little circle?

0:07:410:07:44

Yeah, well done.

0:07:440:07:45

And that little circle is something called a home scar,

0:07:450:07:49

because this animal will grind its shell into the rock

0:07:490:07:53

and only its shell will fit that space.

0:07:530:07:55

So where there's bare spaces is where that animal didn't come back.

0:07:550:08:00

Now, I've just seen something scooting around in the pool

0:08:000:08:03

and I'm going to try and catch it.

0:08:030:08:06

But they're really fast-moving.

0:08:060:08:08

-Here we have it!

-Hey, well done, Judith!

0:08:080:08:11

What is it?

0:08:110:08:13

So this animal has got thin legs

0:08:130:08:15

and they're really stripy, aren't they?

0:08:150:08:18

Like blue and yellow, like football socks.

0:08:180:08:21

-Does anyone know what it is?

-A lobster?

0:08:210:08:23

It looks a bit like a mini lobster, doesn't it?

0:08:230:08:26

-It's sort of the cousin of a lobster.

-A limpet?

0:08:260:08:29

-It's a common prawn.

-A prawn!

-I like prawns.

0:08:290:08:32

So we're going to set the prawn free, back into his rock pool.

0:08:320:08:36

-Bye-bye, prawn.

-Bye-bye.

0:08:360:08:38

These prawns certainly can move.

0:08:380:08:41

Wow, look at him go!

0:08:410:08:43

The tiddlers are taking photos of the creatures they see

0:08:440:08:48

with a camera I brought along in my bag.

0:08:480:08:51

Remember, be careful not to hurt the creatures you find.

0:08:520:08:56

Like the tiddlers, these creatures love where they live.

0:08:560:08:59

It's important to put them back

0:08:590:09:01

in the same rock pool they came from.

0:09:010:09:03

OK, tiddlers, so what we've got here is an animal called a sea anemone.

0:09:050:09:11

And although at low tide it looks like a blob of jelly,

0:09:110:09:14

that's because it's pulled inside itself all of its tentacles.

0:09:140:09:18

And it would have about 200 tentacles,

0:09:180:09:21

which when it's in water will all be out and moving

0:09:210:09:24

and it will look a bit like a flower.

0:09:240:09:26

Oh, those anemones are beautiful!

0:09:270:09:30

Hey, it looks like a garden, a garden under the sea.

0:09:300:09:35

That's quite a big word to say, an anemone.

0:09:350:09:37

Can you say that? Shall we all try it?

0:09:370:09:40

-ALL:

-An anemone.

0:09:400:09:42

-CHIMING

-Hey-o!

0:09:420:09:45

Ah! It looks like the route finder

0:09:450:09:47

wants to show us more about the creatures

0:09:470:09:50

that live in the sea around the UK.

0:09:500:09:53

When the tide comes in, rock pools really spring to life.

0:09:530:09:57

Fabulous starfish.

0:09:570:09:59

Now, they have hundreds of tiny feet to get about.

0:09:590:10:03

And meet the neighbours!

0:10:030:10:06

That's a scallop.

0:10:060:10:07

See snails scurry to and fro,

0:10:090:10:12

eating tiny bits of seaweed on the rocks.

0:10:120:10:16

And when the tide goes out again,

0:10:160:10:18

this crab, with his clippy claw and beady eyes,

0:10:180:10:21

scuttles off to find a hiding place.

0:10:210:10:23

The tiddlers are drawing pictures

0:10:340:10:37

of all the creatures we've seen today.

0:10:370:10:40

And some we didn't!

0:10:400:10:42

There we go.

0:10:420:10:43

They're going to stick them and the photographs

0:10:430:10:46

into their scrapbooks

0:10:460:10:48

and then take them home.

0:10:480:10:50

And what have you been drawing pictures of?

0:10:500:10:53

-Jellyfish.

-Oh, can I see, Anna-Rose?

0:10:550:10:58

Oh, yeah. Look at that, tiddlers. Look!

0:10:580:11:00

-We didn't see any jellyfish today, did we?

-No!

0:11:000:11:03

Cos they don't live in rock pools, they live out to sea.

0:11:030:11:07

Eh, well, tiddlers, these scrapbooks, they look grand.

0:11:070:11:11

We've got pictures that we've taken today.

0:11:110:11:13

We've got the drawings of all the things we've seen.

0:11:130:11:17

You can take them away

0:11:170:11:18

and they'll remind you of this fantastic seaside safari.

0:11:180:11:22

What do you reckon? They looking good?

0:11:220:11:24

-Yeah.

-Yeah, that's right!

0:11:240:11:27

Well, I've got to say a great big thank-you

0:11:310:11:33

for inviting me today.

0:11:330:11:35

I've had a cracking time.

0:11:350:11:37

Judith, thanks for taking us on a seaside safari.

0:11:370:11:40

-It was great, wasn't it?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:11:400:11:43

I can certainly see why you love where you live

0:11:430:11:46

cos it is brilliant.

0:11:460:11:47

But it's time I was on my travels.

0:11:470:11:49

So join me soon when I'll be...

0:11:490:11:51

Here and there!

0:11:510:11:53

-That's right! Bye-bye.

-Bye-bye!
