0:00:070:00:09

# I'm out on the road, you see

0:00:090:00:12

0:00:120:00:14

# Can get together and have some fun

0:00:140:00:17

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

0:00:190:00:21

# So where is it you like to go?

0:00:230:00:26

# Call me up and let me know

0:00:260:00:28

# What is it you like to do?

0:00:280:00:31

# I'll pop along and do it, too

0:00:310:00:33

# Cities, towns or countryside

0:00:330:00:36

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:00:380:00:40

# I'm here and there

0:00:400:00:43

# Here and there

0:00:430:00:45

# I'm here and there. #

0:00:450:00:48

Hello. Mr Bloom here. And I like going here and there

0:00:480:00:51

to find out about where you live and what you like to do.

0:00:510:00:54

And, today, the route-finder's brought me

0:00:540:00:57

all the way to Leicestershire.

0:00:570:00:58

I'm starting off me day

0:00:580:01:00

having a look round this rather interesting castle.

0:01:000:01:03

And I know lots of Tiddlers that live in Leicestershire, too.

0:01:030:01:06

Yeah, they like to keep busy getting up to all sorts of brilliant things.

0:01:060:01:11

ROUTE-FINDER RINGS

0:01:110:01:12

Oh, it looks like the route-finder is going to show us.

0:01:120:01:15

There are animals to see. Ahh, just look at all these birds!

0:01:150:01:20

I know a Tiddler that likes to go riding.

0:01:200:01:24

And others who love to dance.

0:01:240:01:27

There are lots of places to play.

0:01:270:01:29

BOTH: Ha-ha!

0:01:290:01:31

And museums to spend a day!

0:01:310:01:34

Ahh, it's no wonder these Tiddlers love where they live.

0:01:340:01:38

Oh! Mmm.

0:01:490:01:51

This here is Rockingham Castle.

0:01:520:01:55

And I tell you, I'm very impressed with these gardens.

0:01:550:01:59

Mmm, they're lovely, aren't they? And all these plants,

0:01:590:02:02

they'll be needing plenty of sunshine, plenty of water

0:02:020:02:05

and I bet they only use the best compost.

0:02:050:02:08

ROUTE-FINDER RINGS

0:02:080:02:09

Hey, it's Kian. Well, now, Kian and his friends

0:02:090:02:13

know all about making compost. I went along to visit them

0:02:130:02:17

and a composting expert called Rod.

0:02:170:02:20

-Hey, hello there, Tiddlers!

-ALL: Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:02:220:02:25

Aww, it's nice to see you. What are you up to?

0:02:250:02:28

-We're doing composting.

-Composting, eh?

0:02:280:02:31

The waste goes in the top and compost comes out the bottom.

0:02:310:02:35

That's right, Tiegan. Well done!

0:02:350:02:38

That compost will help flowers and plants to grow.

0:02:380:02:43

And Rod, how does all the waste get turned into compost?

0:02:430:02:46

There's lots of creatures that live in the compost and,

0:02:460:02:50

most important, are lots and lots of worms.

0:02:500:02:53

Most of them will eat the food

0:02:530:02:55

and what comes out the other end is compost.

0:02:550:02:58

The other animal that you find in compost bins are ants.

0:02:580:03:02

What are they doing, Kian?

0:03:020:03:04

They're crawling on some sludgy thing.

0:03:040:03:08

And in this one, we have some very small flies.

0:03:080:03:12

I can see them! They're little, tiny dots moving.

0:03:120:03:15

Oh, yeah! They are tiny, aren't they?

0:03:150:03:18

Well, those insects and worms, they certainly have their work cut out

0:03:180:03:22

turning all that waste into useful compost. Yeah, they were very busy.

0:03:220:03:27

But I'm sure they were very happy. Ha-ha! Look, I can see for miles.

0:03:270:03:31

It's like I've got a birdseye's view of everything.

0:03:310:03:34

Yeah, it's fantastic!

0:03:340:03:35

ROUTE-FINDER RINGS

0:03:350:03:39

Oh! Would you look at that! It's a bird!

0:03:390:03:42

And this bird is called an osprey. Yeah, and I met some Tiddlers

0:03:420:03:46

from Rutland who were osprey experts.

0:03:460:03:49

The daddy bird is just flying in with some fish.

0:03:490:03:52

-Look, he's eating the fish!

-Yeah! Yeah, he's eating it.

0:03:520:03:57

There is someone out there. Look! He's having a bath.

0:03:570:04:02

Having a bird bath. Ooh!

0:04:020:04:04

Wow! These ospreys are really good at flying.

0:04:040:04:08

-Eloise, do you know any places that they fly to?

-Africa.

0:04:080:04:12

Why do they go to Africa?

0:04:120:04:14

Because it's nice and warm there and if they stayed here,

0:04:140:04:17

-they'd get really cold.

-Right!

0:04:170:04:19

They fly all the ways to countries in Africa in the winter.

0:04:190:04:23

And then come back here in the spring.

0:04:230:04:25

Why do you think the birds keep coming back here?

0:04:250:04:28

So they can lay their eggs.

0:04:280:04:30

Ahh, yes! And there's a camera right beside the nest.

0:04:300:04:34

So, we can see what happened when the ospreys laid their eggs.

0:04:340:04:38

It's hatching!

0:04:380:04:40

He's eating a fish. Oh, poor fish!

0:04:400:04:43

I think he's enjoying it.

0:04:430:04:44

And they're growing really quickly.

0:04:440:04:47

They're fully grown now.

0:04:470:04:49

They're getting ready to fly.

0:04:490:04:51

Wow, well, they've certainly grown, haven't they, Tiddlers?

0:04:510:04:54

Look at the size of them now.

0:04:540:04:56

That is a fantastic journey that those ospreys go on.

0:04:560:05:00

-What do you think?

-ALL: Yeah!

0:05:000:05:02

Ospreys fly a very long way. I'm not sure my wings could manage it.

0:05:050:05:10

Ha-ha! But they are amazing birds.

0:05:100:05:12

It was really good of Harry and his friends to introduce me.

0:05:120:05:16

But it's not just ospreys that you get around here. No, no.

0:05:160:05:19

There's loads of animals that have made themselves at home.

0:05:190:05:23

-ROUTE-FINDER RINGS

-Eh-up!

0:05:230:05:25

I went to a farm where I met lots of cows

0:05:250:05:27

and two Tiddlers called Jessica and Oliver.

0:05:270:05:30

They introduced me to their Uncle David.

0:05:300:05:32

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

0:05:320:05:37

-What are cows good at doing?

-Making milk.

-That's right!

0:05:370:05:40

And these cows look like they're ready to be milked.

0:05:400:05:46

All right, then, David. What have we got here?

0:05:460:05:49

Well, this is the milking parlour and these are the cows.

0:05:490:05:52

-All right. Let's get to it.

-Right, OK.

0:05:520:05:54

The milk from these cows is going to be turned into cheese -

0:05:540:05:58

Red Leicester cheese.

0:05:580:05:59

The cheese making room needs to be kept very clean.

0:05:590:06:03

So, we have to wear these special clothes.

0:06:030:06:06

Then, the first job is to add the red colour to the milk.

0:06:060:06:09

Very well done, Jessica.

0:06:090:06:11

It's a very pretty batter, isn't it?

0:06:110:06:14

What do we need to do next, Jessica?

0:06:140:06:17

We need to separate the curds from the whey.

0:06:170:06:20

Whey is the watery bit.

0:06:220:06:25

The curds are the cheesy bits.

0:06:250:06:28

And we cut the curd into blocks.

0:06:280:06:31

Oh, that's a big one there.

0:06:310:06:34

Then, we put them in the mill.

0:06:340:06:36

Ooh, it's very heavy. Oh!

0:06:400:06:42

We then put it in a press for two days.

0:06:420:06:45

Now, how long before we get to taste some?

0:06:450:06:48

-Seven months.

-Seven months!

0:06:480:06:52

Wow, that's a long time to wait.

0:06:520:06:54

Luckily, Uncle David has some that is ready for us to eat.

0:06:540:06:58

Thank you.

0:06:580:06:59

Mmm! That tasted great! What do you reckon, Tiddlers?

0:07:010:07:05

-Tastes really good.

-Yeah?

0:07:050:07:07

And it's all thanks to those cows, isn't it, Tiddlers?

0:07:070:07:11

COW MOOS

0:07:110:07:13

BOTH: Yeah!

0:07:130:07:15

Hey, that cheese...ever so tasty.

0:07:150:07:18

But it takes a lot of work and a lot of time

0:07:180:07:20

to turn cow's milk into yummy cheese.

0:07:200:07:23

Hey! And, I also, know some other Tiddlers who like to keep busy.

0:07:230:07:26

Yeah, they were doing a spot of gardening.

0:07:260:07:29

The next thing you know, they were selling the vegetables they'd grown.

0:07:290:07:33

-ROUTE-FINDER RINGS

-Ha-ha!

0:07:330:07:35

I certainly enjoyed meeting them.

0:07:350:07:37

Hey, Tiddlers, what are you up to here?

0:07:370:07:39

-We're harvesting onions.

-Oh!

0:07:390:07:42

Hey, these look like good onions to me!

0:07:420:07:45

And what are you growing?

0:07:450:07:47

We're growing some beetroot over there.

0:07:470:07:51

Now, I can see you've got courgettes.

0:07:510:07:53

And, erm, what's this one here?

0:07:530:07:55

-Fenugreek.

-Fenugreek.

0:07:550:07:57

Wow! There's so much growing here!

0:07:570:08:00

So, lads, tell me what's going to happen to these vegetables.

0:08:000:08:04

-We're going to take them to local stores and sell them.

-Really?

0:08:040:08:08

-Well, that sounds like fun to me. Is that fun?

-Yes.

0:08:080:08:11

OK. Let's do it!

0:08:110:08:13

Come and get your vegetables!

0:08:160:08:18

Freshly grown from the garden today!

0:08:180:08:20

What can we get for you? We've got some coriander there, haven't we?

0:08:200:08:25

Ooo! You want to smell it? Mmm.

0:08:250:08:27

-Go on, then! Come and get your vegetables.

-Come on buy vegetables!

0:08:270:08:30

-I'll have some fenugreek, I think.

-You think? All right.

0:08:300:08:34

-Beetroot.

-A bit of onion.

-Yes, a bit of onion. Yeah, that's great.

0:08:340:08:39

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you for coming. Tell your friends.

0:08:390:08:42

Will do. Bye-bye.

0:08:420:08:44

All right, thanks for coming. Bye-bye. Happy cooking.

0:08:440:08:48

It was great selling all that veg the Tiddlers had grown.

0:08:550:08:58

But, today, I have come somewhere totally different to meet some

0:08:580:09:02

other Tiddlers and find out what they like to do in Leicestershire.

0:09:020:09:06

I said I'd meet them around here somewhere but, erm...

0:09:060:09:09

Oh, aye! I think I found them!

0:09:090:09:14

-Tag!

-Tag! That's it!

0:09:140:09:15

Three, two, one, PLAY!

0:09:150:09:19

Go, go, go!

0:09:190:09:21

Ahh, good try!

0:09:210:09:25

Hey, look it's Hal, Thomas and Noah. Hello there, Tiddlers!

0:09:250:09:28

ALL: Hello there, Mr Bloom!

0:09:280:09:31

Now, it looked like you were having great fun out there.

0:09:310:09:34

-Were you playing rugby?

-It was tag rugby.

-Oh, tag rugby.

0:09:340:09:37

Someone has to try and tag you on the other team.

0:09:370:09:42

So, you can't, like, score a try.

0:09:420:09:44

And, Noah, how do you score a try?

0:09:440:09:46

Well, the team that has the ball has to try

0:09:460:09:49

and go to the opposite edge of the pitch and place the ball down.

0:09:490:09:54

-So, that scores you a try. Is that right?

-Yeah.

0:09:540:09:57

WHISTLE BLOWS Try! One stepping in. Great try!

0:09:570:10:00

-You think you could show us some more about the game?

-ALL: Yeah!

0:10:000:10:04

Yeah? All right. And look!

0:10:040:10:06

Our other Tiddler friends from Leicestershire

0:10:060:10:09

are getting involved, too.

0:10:090:10:10

Right, then, Tiddlers. We've got our bibs. We've got our belts, our tags.

0:10:100:10:14

-So, you ready to play some tag rugby?

-ALL: YEAH!

0:10:140:10:19

Richard is a rugby coach. And he's helping us learn the skills

0:10:190:10:22

we'll need to play tag rugby.

0:10:220:10:25

Put it on the floor! Eh!

0:10:250:10:26

I'm going to teach you how to dodge and how to get tags.

0:10:260:10:30

So, you need to run from one end of the square to the other.

0:10:300:10:33

And our rugby players here are going to try to grab your tags.

0:10:330:10:37

-Are you ready?

-Yeah!

-Go!

0:10:370:10:39

Oh, no!

0:10:410:10:42

Richard's teaching us how to tag.

0:10:440:10:47

Oh, that's a tickle. Oh, you got me!

0:10:470:10:51

We're learning how to pass the ball.

0:10:510:10:53

That's better passing.

0:10:530:10:55

-Go on.

-As quick as you can.

0:10:550:10:58

And how to score a try.

0:10:580:11:00

-Score the try for us. Great!

-Woo hoo!

0:11:000:11:03

-Ready to play some rugby?

-ALL: Yeah! OK!

0:11:030:11:06

Ready, Harry? PLAY! Run straight. Run straight.

0:11:060:11:09

Here we go. Defend, defend!

0:11:090:11:12

Tag! Pass.

0:11:120:11:14

Put the ball down. Put the ball down.

0:11:140:11:18

REFEREE BLOWS WHISTLE Try!

0:11:180:11:21

Off you go.

0:11:210:11:23

Pick it up, yellows. Let's go.

0:11:230:11:25

Try!

0:11:270:11:30

Hey. I think that whistle means the game is over.

0:11:300:11:34

Would you look at us? I think we should ask

0:11:340:11:37

-the experts how we got on.

-BRILLIANT!

0:11:370:11:40

-Aw, fantastic. So, did we have fun?

-ALL: YEAH!

0:11:400:11:43

Well, I'm glad to hear it. It's been a cracking day,

0:11:430:11:46

but, erm, it's that time when I've got to hit the road.

0:11:460:11:49

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

-ALL: HERE AND THERE!

0:11:490:11:53

-Yeah! Bye-bye, Tiddlers!

-ALL: Bye!

0:11:530:11:55

# Where is it you like to go?

0:11:550:11:57

# Call me up and let me know

0:11:570:12:00

# What is it you like to do?

0:12:000:12:02

# I'll pop along and do it, too

0:12:020:12:05

# Cities, towns, the countryside

0:12:050:12:07

# I can travel far and wide

0:12:070:12:09

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:12:090:12:12

# I'm here and there. #

0:12:120:12:14
