0:00:070:00:10

# I'm out on the road, you see

0:00:100:00:12

0:00:120:00:14

# Can get together and have some fun

0:00:140:00:17

# 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

0:00:310:00:33

0:00:330:00:36

# I'm all about and everywhere

# Here and there

0:00:430:00:45

# I'm here and there. #

0:00:450:00:48

Hey, hello there! I'm Mr Bloom,

0:00:540:00:56

and I love going here and there to find out

0:00:560:00:59

about where you live and what you like to do.

0:00:590:01:02

And today, the Route Finder has brought me to South Wales.

0:01:020:01:05

Mm! And I tell you, there's loads going on here

0:01:050:01:08

on the beach, and all around.

0:01:080:01:10

Oop, looks like the route finder's going to show us!

0:01:100:01:13

There are great rocky beaches, with surprises to find.

0:01:170:01:21

Beautiful parks,

0:01:220:01:24

with creatures of a different kind.

0:01:240:01:27

Fairy tale castles. Go in and explore.

0:01:300:01:33

And real castles tower over gardens, and more.

0:01:350:01:39

There are beaches for swimming and some surf there, too.

0:01:400:01:44

And gardens in the town with fun things to do.

0:01:440:01:48

Where are you?

0:01:480:01:50

You can see why these tiddlers love where they live.

0:01:500:01:53

Ooh, look at all that sand, ha-ha! And later on

0:02:030:02:06

I'm meeting some tiddlers who fancy doing a bit of beach art.

0:02:060:02:10

Yeah! Can't wait to get stuck into that.

0:02:100:02:13

But you know, not all beaches are sandy, like this one.

0:02:130:02:16

Some, where you get rocks, and when the tide goes out

0:02:160:02:20

sometimes it leaves rock pools, where you find sea creatures.

0:02:200:02:24

Ey-up. Hey, looks like the route finder's going to show us!

0:02:240:02:28

Now, this was a time when Giuseppe and Anna-Rose invited me over.

0:02:280:02:32

They showed me some sea creatures.

0:02:320:02:35

Yeah, we got to go on a seaside safari.

0:02:350:02:37

Wow, look at all the rock pools that the sea's left behind!

0:02:410:02:46

We're going rock pooling with an expert called Judith.

0:02:460:02:50

Now, it's important to go with a grown-up.

0:02:500:02:52

Judith can tell us how to be safe on the slippery rocks

0:02:520:02:56

and about all the creatures we find.

0:02:560:02:58

-So you must be Judith.

-Yes.

0:03:040:03:07

-And who have we got here?

-I'm Tristan.

-I'm Laura.

0:03:070:03:10

I've just seen something scooting around in a pool

0:03:110:03:14

and I'm going to try and catch it,

0:03:140:03:16

but they're really fast-moving.

0:03:160:03:19

Here we have it.

0:03:190:03:21

Hey, well done, Judith. Oh!

0:03:210:03:24

So, this animal has got thin legs, and they're really stripy,

0:03:240:03:28

like blue and yellow.

0:03:280:03:30

Like football socks!

0:03:300:03:32

Does anyone know what it is?

0:03:320:03:34

-A lobster?

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

0:03:340:03:37

And it's sort of the cousin of a lobster.

0:03:370:03:40

-It's a common prawn.

-It's a prawn!

0:03:400:03:42

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

0:03:420:03:47

The tiddlers are taking photos

0:03:490:03:52

to remind us of the things we find on our seashore safari.

0:03:520:03:56

Now, the other day, I met some tiddlers in a beautiful place

0:03:560:04:00

called Margam Country Park. Yeah.

0:04:000:04:03

It's got some gorgeous trees and plants

0:04:030:04:05

and all kinds of birds and wildlife.

0:04:050:04:08

Ey-up, shall we take a look?

0:04:080:04:11

That's Kirsten, Emily and Georgia!

0:04:110:04:14

There's a beautiful castle here

0:04:140:04:16

but also a pond that we're going to explore.

0:04:160:04:19

So what type of things do you think we'll find?

0:04:190:04:22

-Tadpoles?

-Tadpoles! Yeah, maybe, some baby frogs.

0:04:220:04:26

-Toads?

-Hmm, maybe some toads.

0:04:260:04:28

So where do we need to go?

0:04:280:04:29

That way.

0:04:290:04:31

Right, well, let's go.

0:04:310:04:33

We're going to look for amphibians -

0:04:350:04:38

creatures that live in and out of the water.

0:04:380:04:40

Remember, it's important to take care when walking near water.

0:04:400:04:44

This is Jo. She knows all about the creatures we might find.

0:04:440:04:48

Oh, I see something!

0:04:480:04:50

KIDS ALL SHOUT AT ONCE

0:04:500:04:52

-It's a spider.

-I love spiders!

0:04:520:04:55

You OK?

0:04:570:04:58

Looks like the newts and toads are hiding from the sun.

0:04:580:05:02

Luckily, Jo found something earlier and kept it in the shade.

0:05:020:05:06

What have we got here?

0:05:060:05:08

-A newt!

-He's a newt.

0:05:080:05:10

-And look. He's got a long tail, hasn't he?

-Yeah.

0:05:100:05:15

-Now, what do you think the last thing is that I've got here?

-Here he comes.

0:05:150:05:20

Oh!

0:05:200:05:22

It's a...

0:05:220:05:24

Toad!

0:05:240:05:25

And he has

0:05:250:05:28

beautiful golden eyes.

0:05:280:05:30

HE HUMS HAPPILY

0:05:310:05:33

Ha-ha!

0:05:360:05:37

Hey, I do like a paddle. And you know, when it's nice and warm,

0:05:400:05:43

loads of people like to come to the beach.

0:05:430:05:46

And if it's safe, you can have a paddle in the sea.

0:05:460:05:49

I met some tiddlers who know all about staying safe at the seaside.

0:05:490:05:53

The route finder's going to tell us all about it.

0:05:530:05:56

That's Abigail and Josie. They're surf life-saving Nippers.

0:05:560:06:00

So who are all your friends here?

0:06:040:06:06

There's Nippers and they are coaches.

0:06:060:06:09

-And what are you training for?

-To be a lifeguard.

-Really?

0:06:090:06:12

What's your favourite thing about being a Nipper, Jo?

0:06:120:06:16

-Doing flags.

-Doing flags.

0:06:160:06:18

-Is this what your friends are doing right now?

-Yeah.

0:06:180:06:21

Ready?

0:06:210:06:22

Lifeguards have to react quickly.

0:06:220:06:24

Teams on flags!

0:06:240:06:27

WHISTLE

0:06:270:06:28

So they practice by playing a game called Flags.

0:06:280:06:31

It's a bit like Musical Chairs,

0:06:310:06:33

because the last one there is out.

0:06:330:06:35

Nippers need to run through water, too.

0:06:360:06:39

And this game's called Run Wave, Run.

0:06:390:06:41

Ah, good running! Good running, Nippers.

0:06:410:06:44

Good running. That's it, keep going!

0:06:460:06:49

A lifeguard has to be fast, and these nippers certainly can move.

0:06:490:06:53

Right, high-five, Nippers!

0:06:530:06:55

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Wow!

0:06:550:06:57

Those tiddlers certainly loved to have a run-around.

0:06:590:07:02

Looks like hard work being a Nipper, but what a good thing to know.

0:07:020:07:06

I met some other tiddlers who like to run around as well,

0:07:060:07:10

in the heart of Neath. Ey-up, looks like

0:07:100:07:12

-the route finder's going to show us what happened.

-Yay!

0:07:120:07:17

Hey, it's Alexander, Maddie and Ivana! Hello there!

0:07:170:07:20

-ALL:

-Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:07:200:07:22

Thanks for inviting me to your park.

0:07:220:07:25

It's a lovely place, this. Look at it!

0:07:250:07:28

Alex tells me this circle of giant stones

0:07:280:07:30

has been here for nearly 100 years.

0:07:300:07:33

That's a long time to you and me.

0:07:330:07:35

Why did people put them here in the first place?

0:07:350:07:38

-The Eisteddfod.

-The Eisteddfod?

-It's a Welsh festival of music.

0:07:380:07:42

-So all those years ago, there was loads of music playing here?

-Yeah!

0:07:420:07:47

Today there are lots of tiddlers playing in the Victoria Gardens.

0:07:480:07:52

They're practising circus skills at the holiday play scheme.

0:07:540:07:58

-Have you done any juggling before, Alex?

-No.

0:07:580:08:01

You haven't? Shall we try?

0:08:010:08:03

JAUNTY CIRCUS MUSIC

0:08:030:08:05

Throw it up, watch it and catch it in the other hand. Bang on!

0:08:050:08:10

Hey, that's clever!

0:08:120:08:14

-One, two, three!

-HE WHISTLES

0:08:140:08:16

Well, I'm still here at Aberavon beach.

0:08:260:08:29

And I've found Tebang, Owen and Liva

0:08:290:08:31

and they're helping prepare the beach for the big art day. Ey-up!

0:08:310:08:36

Oh, there's a lot of wind today.

0:08:370:08:39

Hey, hello there, tiddlers!

0:08:390:08:41

ALL: Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:08:410:08:43

Good to see you. And you must be Sarah.

0:08:430:08:45

I am indeed. Nice to meet you, Mr Bloom.

0:08:450:08:48

Hey! You're doing a great job decorating this beach,

0:08:480:08:51

but what's it all about?

0:08:510:08:53

-Sculpture By The Sea.

-So is there a festival on here, today?

-Yeah.

0:08:530:08:57

Brilliant! What type of sculptures will you be making, Owen?

0:08:570:09:01

Creatures that live close to the sea.

0:09:010:09:04

-And Tebang, what type of sculptures might you make?

-Hammerhead sharks!

0:09:040:09:08

A hammerhead shark! Oo-er!

0:09:080:09:11

And what are you going to make them out of?

0:09:110:09:13

-Sand.

-Sand! Yeah.

0:09:130:09:15

Well, tiddlers, this all sounds good to me. What do you reckon?

0:09:150:09:19

-Are you ready to make some big beach art?

-Yes!

-Ha-ha!

0:09:190:09:22

With the help of Sarah and other local artists,

0:09:250:09:28

tiddlers and their families are making sculptures out of sand.

0:09:280:09:32

There are fantastic fish.

0:09:350:09:38

Starfish.

0:09:380:09:40

And shells made out of shells.

0:09:400:09:42

The things you find on the beach can give you lots of arty ideas.

0:09:460:09:50

You've got the sea, shells, sea creatures.

0:09:500:09:53

So, that's why we're making...

0:09:530:09:56

-A crab.

-Yeah, a giant crab.

0:09:560:09:59

How are you getting on there, Owen?

0:09:590:10:02

Very, very good.

0:10:020:10:03

I'm very glad to hear that. What are you making?

0:10:030:10:06

One of the giant claws.

0:10:060:10:09

-And what are you decorating it with, Liva?

-Shells.

0:10:090:10:12

Shells? Ooh, yeah!

0:10:120:10:14

We've got little ones, we've got big ones.

0:10:140:10:17

While we're working on our crab,

0:10:190:10:21

the other tiddlers I met this week are making something even bigger.

0:10:210:10:26

Hey, I tell you what. Shall we go

0:10:260:10:28

-and give those tiddlers a hand with their giant sand sculpture?

-Yes!

0:10:280:10:32

Yes? Right, well, let's go!

0:10:320:10:34

Hey, hello there, tiddlers!

0:10:370:10:40

ALL: Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:10:400:10:42

Wow! Look at this sea creature! He's massive! And you know what?

0:10:420:10:46

I wonder what it might be. Shall we count these tentacles?

0:10:460:10:49

Let's count the tentacles.

0:10:490:10:52

One, two, three,

0:10:520:10:54

four, five, six, seven, eight.

0:10:540:11:00

Eight tentacles, ooh! What type of sea creature

0:11:000:11:03

-do you think it might be, Tebang?

-A giant octopus!

0:11:030:11:06

So, tiddlers, do you want help with this giant task?

0:11:060:11:10

-ALL: Yes!

-All right, let's get to it.

0:11:100:11:13

The tiddlers are patting down the sand

0:11:160:11:19

and making patterns in the tentacles.

0:11:190:11:22

Hey, it's a big job, but everybody's doing their bit.

0:11:220:11:26

HE MAKES BUBBLING NOISES

0:11:260:11:29

I'm a creature of the sea! Ha-ha!

0:11:290:11:32

Very good!

0:11:400:11:41

This is looking good to me, tiddlers.

0:11:430:11:45

When you work together, you can come up with

0:11:450:11:48

-something absolutely amazing. Isn't that right?

-Yeah!

0:11:480:11:51

Ha-ha! I've had a cracking time, hanging out with you in South Wales,

0:11:510:11:56

finding out what you like to get up to,

0:11:560:11:59

but it's time I hit the road.

0:11:590:12:01

So, you all join me soon, when I'll be...

0:12:010:12:04

Here and there!

0:12:040:12:05

Absolutely! Bye-bye, tiddlers.

0:12:050:12:07

Goodbye!

0:12:070:12:09

# Tell me where you'd like to go

0:12:090:12:11

# Call me up and let me know

0:12:110:12:13

# What is it you like to do?

0:12:130:12:15

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:12:150:12:17

# Cities, towns, the countryside

0:12:170:12:20

# I can travel far and wide

0:12:200:12:23

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:12:230:12:25

# I'm here and there! #

0:12:250:12:27
