0:00:190:00:22

# So where is it you'd like to go?

0:00:230:00:26

0:00:260:00:28

# What is it you'd like to do?

0:00:280:00:31

0:00:430:00:45

# On Here And There. #

0:00:450:00:47

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

0:00:510:00:54

Oh, Mr Bloom, here.

0:00:540:00:55

And apart from gardening, I like going out and about.

0:00:550:00:59

I like going here and there doing lots of fun things

0:00:590:01:01

and finding out about new places.

0:01:010:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:07

Perhaps you might like going to the beach with you family,

0:01:070:01:09

or visiting museums?

0:01:090:01:11

BOING!

0:01:110:01:12

Ooh! Well, it looks like somebody wants to tell me!

0:01:120:01:16

Hello, Mr Bloom. I'm Jessica and this is Oliver, and we live on a farm.

0:01:160:01:21

There are pigs...

0:01:250:01:26

..and sheep too.

0:01:280:01:29

They like munching on grass.

0:01:300:01:32

There's some cows with big horns on their heads called longhorn cattle.

0:01:340:01:38

This is the food for the chicks.

0:01:430:01:45

My favourite animal is Sammy the pony.

0:01:500:01:52

We like going riding together.

0:01:530:01:55

You should come and visit us, Mr Bloom!

0:01:580:02:00

Hey, you know what? I'd love to come.

0:02:000:02:02

# Whereabouts will I end up next?

0:02:100:02:12

# Let's put my Route Finder to the test

0:02:150:02:17

# It could be a beach A village or a city

0:02:190:02:21

# Museum or a school A garden so pretty

0:02:210:02:24

# A church or a station A river or town

0:02:240:02:26

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

0:02:260:02:28

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way

0:02:280:02:33

# So where am I today? #

0:02:330:02:36

Hey, hello there, Tiddlers. Hello, Mum.

0:02:480:02:51

-CHILDREN AND MUM:

-Hello!

0:02:510:02:52

Aw. And hello to you, Sammy! It's nice to meet you.

0:02:520:02:56

And thank you for inviting me to your farm.

0:02:560:02:59

-So Jessica, what you up to?

-Grooming Sammy.

0:02:590:03:01

Well, you're doing a fine job there.

0:03:010:03:03

And Oliver, have you got any other jobs to do today?

0:03:030:03:06

-Got to feed the animals.

-Feed the animals, very important.

0:03:060:03:10

-Could I help you with feeding the Sammy?

-Yes.

-All right then.

0:03:100:03:13

You lead the way. Come on.

0:03:130:03:15

-Right. What have we got here?

-Some carrots.

-Some crunchy carrots.

0:03:160:03:21

-Now, are they all for you to eat?

-No.

-No.

0:03:210:03:24

-I bet Sammy must love carrots. And what's this, Jessica?

-Chaff.

0:03:240:03:29

-So is that Sammy's favourite food?

-Yeah.

-Right, I see.

0:03:290:03:33

-So how many spoonfuls do we need to put in this big bucket?

-One scoop.

0:03:330:03:37

-One scoop. Go on, then. You put one in there.

-And one scoop of this one.

0:03:370:03:42

And one from that one. Put them in there. You give it a good stir.

0:03:440:03:49

-So is this food good for Sammy, Jessica?

-Yes.

-Yeah?

0:03:490:03:52

It gives her lots of energy so I can ride her.

0:03:520:03:55

Every horse needs energy, don't they, so they can run about.

0:03:550:03:58

-And how are you getting on there, Oliver? Is it ready?

-Yes.

0:03:580:04:02

Right then. Let's take it over for Sammy to eat.

0:04:020:04:05

Sammy's certainly enjoying her food,

0:04:070:04:09

though I'm not sure I'd like to eat it.

0:04:090:04:13

But I have spied a rather lovely basket of veg over there.

0:04:130:04:17

-So maybe we could have that for our dinner, couldn't we?

-No.

-No?

0:04:170:04:21

-Why not?

-It's for Apple and Banana.

-Apple and Banana?

0:04:210:04:25

So let me get this straight, you're going

0:04:250:04:27

to feed some lettuce to an apple and a banana?

0:04:270:04:30

-We'll show you?

-Really? I think you better had!

0:04:300:04:33

PIGS GRUNT

0:04:360:04:38

Ah, I see, Tiddlers, Apple and Banana are the names of your pigs!

0:04:400:04:44

Let's feed them these vegetables.

0:04:440:04:47

Here we go.

0:04:470:04:48

Here you go, piggies. You going to have some greens?

0:04:500:04:53

Right then. So that's the pigs got their dinner. How about us, though?

0:04:550:04:59

We going to put our feet up, have a cup of tea?

0:04:590:05:01

-No, there's lots more to see.

-Really?

0:05:010:05:04

COWS MOO

0:05:050:05:07

Oh, Tiddlers, this is where your chickens are.

0:05:160:05:18

They look very happy to me, flapping about.

0:05:180:05:21

-And where do they lay their eggs, Jessica?

-Everywhere, Mr Bloom.

0:05:210:05:26

-Is it time to collect the eggs in, Oliver?

-Yeah.

-All right then.

0:05:260:05:29

Look, we could use these baskets. There we go.

0:05:290:05:32

Just grab a basket, and then we can see how many eggs we can find.

0:05:320:05:36

CHICKENS CLUCK

0:05:370:05:39

CHICKENS CLUCK

0:05:490:05:51

-Mummy, I found one!

-Excellent! Well done. Pop it in your basket.

0:05:520:05:57

-Dad, I found one.

-Well done, Jessica!

0:05:590:06:01

Thank you.

0:06:170:06:19

So, let's add these eggs up. I got to three eggs.

0:06:200:06:25

-OK, how about you, Oliver?

-Two.

0:06:250:06:28

-And you, Jessica?

-Two.

0:06:280:06:30

-You got two, so that's four, and I got three, so that is...

-Seven.

0:06:300:06:34

That's right, Jessica, we got seven eggs!

0:06:340:06:37

ROOSTER CROWS

0:06:370:06:38

Eh?

0:06:400:06:41

Eh! Looks like the Route Finder wants to show us

0:06:410:06:44

some more animals you find on a farm.

0:06:440:06:46

'You might find these animals at night!'

0:06:460:06:48

'Wow! This barn owl has made a nest in a farm building.'

0:06:500:06:53

'Barn owls are a type of bird.

0:06:540:06:56

'They love to fly about when it's dark outside.

0:06:560:06:59

'But other animals like to fly at night-time too.

0:06:590:07:02

'But these aren't birds. No, these super fliers are called bats.

0:07:020:07:08

'Bats have really good hearing.

0:07:080:07:10

'They can't see very well, so they find their way about by listening.

0:07:100:07:15

'So, while we're tucked up in our beds,

0:07:150:07:18

'bats and owls are keeping busy in the skies.

0:07:180:07:21

'Hey, there's always something going on in the countryside!'

0:07:210:07:26

'There are lots of cows here,

0:07:260:07:28

'and they live on a different farm with Jessica and Oliver's uncle.

0:07:280:07:32

'He's called David, and the Tiddlers invited me along to say hello.'

0:07:320:07:37

Well, it looks like you've got a fine herd of cows here, Tiddlers.

0:07:370:07:40

-And what are cows good at doing?

-Making milk.

-That's right!

0:07:400:07:45

They make milk, and we can get milk from the udders, and by the

0:07:450:07:49

look of them, it looks like they got a lot of milk in there.

0:07:490:07:52

Well, Mr Bloom, we need to milk the cows,

0:07:520:07:54

so if you'd like to help us, that would be fantastic.

0:07:540:07:57

Yeah, that would be brilliant! I'd love to. Come on. Lead on.

0:07:570:08:00

Right then, David, what have we got here?

0:08:060:08:09

-This is the milking parlour and these are the cows.

-Right.

0:08:090:08:11

-Let's get to it.

-OK!

0:08:110:08:13

'The milk goes from the cows through lots of tubes into this big vat.

0:08:170:08:22

'But this milk isn't for drinking.

0:08:220:08:24

'No, it's going to be turned into cheese!

0:08:240:08:27

'Red Leicester cheese!

0:08:270:08:29

'The cheese making room needs to be kept extra clean,

0:08:290:08:33

'so we've had to put on special clothes and nets over our hair.'

0:08:330:08:37

Hey! Would you look at all this milk?

0:08:380:08:40

It's ready to be turned into cheese. But, you know what?

0:08:400:08:44

I thought Red Leicester was a bit more red!

0:08:440:08:46

-How do you change the colour?

-You put some red in.

0:08:460:08:51

-And what is that red colour, Jessica?

-Annatto.

-Annatto, eh?

0:08:510:08:54

Well, let's do it!

0:08:540:08:56

Wow!

0:08:580:08:59

'Annatto is lovely and red, and it actually comes from plants,

0:08:590:09:03

'plants that grow a long way away in a place called South America.'

0:09:030:09:08

Hey, well done, Jessica. A very pretty pattern this, isn't it?

0:09:080:09:12

It's not all turned orange, has it?

0:09:120:09:15

'A machine mixes the annatto into the milk.'

0:09:160:09:19

'And uncle David pours in a liquid called rennet.'

0:09:270:09:30

'This makes the milk much thicker.'

0:09:310:09:33

What do we need to do next, Jessica?

0:09:340:09:36

We need to separate the curds from the whey.

0:09:360:09:38

'The curds are the cheesy bits...

0:09:450:09:48

'and the whey is the watery bit.'

0:09:480:09:50

'The whey is drained away.'

0:09:520:09:54

'And we cut the curd into blocks.'

0:09:560:09:58

That's a big one, that.

0:09:590:10:01

'And we put them in the mill...'

0:10:020:10:04

'..which grinds the curd into pieces.

0:10:060:10:09

'We put the curd into the mould.'

0:10:090:10:12

Ooh! That's very heavy. Ah!

0:10:120:10:15

'We then put it in the press for two days.'

0:10:150:10:18

There we go.

0:10:180:10:19

Right, so we got the cheese there,

0:10:190:10:21

-now how long before we get to taste some?

-Seven months.

-Seven months?!

0:10:210:10:27

That's over half a year!

0:10:270:10:29

My rumbly tummy can't wait seven months for some cheese!

0:10:290:10:32

Well, I think we can find some which we've made before.

0:10:320:10:34

Ah, now THAT is music to my ears. Come on, lead the way.

0:10:340:10:38

So, Tiddlers, I can see this is all the cheese,

0:10:430:10:45

but it looks a bit funny to me. Why is that then?

0:10:450:10:48

Well, Mr Bloom, we wrap it in lard and muslin,

0:10:480:10:51

and it stops it drying out. As it stops it drying out,

0:10:510:10:53

-all the tastes improve as it gets a little bit older.

-Right, I see.

0:10:530:10:57

-So it looks like this to keep it nice and tasty.

-Absolutely.

0:10:570:11:01

So there we are.

0:11:020:11:04

-How does it smell to you, Jessica?

-Cheesy.

-Yeah, very cheesy.

0:11:050:11:09

Nice and cheesy. I'd love to taste some.

0:11:090:11:12

Best way to eat our cheese is in a sandwich,

0:11:120:11:14

-so why don't we go and have a picnic?

-Yeah!

0:11:140:11:17

Ha-ha! Come on, Tiddlers, this way!

0:11:170:11:19

Oh, your cheese, it makes a cracking sandwich, David.

0:11:340:11:37

-Thank you very much.

-And you know what?

0:11:370:11:40

Whilst we're at it, I reckon we should thank your cows as well.

0:11:400:11:43

Come on, everyone!

0:11:430:11:44

ALL: Thank you, cows!

0:11:440:11:45

COWS MOO

0:11:470:11:48

Ha-ha!

0:11:480:11:50

You're quite all right. Hey, and I'd like to thank you, Oliver,

0:11:500:11:53

and you, Jessica. I've had a brilliant day.

0:11:530:11:56

But it's time for me to go, so join me soon when I'll be...

0:11:560:11:59

Here and there!

0:11:590:12:02

You're right. Bye-bye!

0:12:020:12:04

Bye!

0:12:040:12:05

# Where is it you'd like to go?

0:12:080:12:10

# Call me up and let me know

0:12:100:12:13

# 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

0:12:200:12:22

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:12:220:12:24

# I'm here and there! #

0:12:240:12:26

Green-fingered gardener Mr Bloom helps young people around the country with their gardens and green spaces.

Jessica and Oliver are lucky enough to live on a farm with lots of animals. Their uncle lives on the farm next door and his cows produce milk for red leicester cheese. Mr Bloom pays the Tiddlers a visit and gets to feed the animals, collect the hens' eggs and help to make cheese.
