# Can get together and have some fun

0:00:140:00:17

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

0:00:190:00:22

# 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

0:00:310:00:33

# 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

Hey, hello there, tiddlers, how you tiddling?

0:00:520:00:55

Oh, Mr Bloom here and I like going out and about.

0:00:550:00:58

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

0:00:580:01:02

and finding out about new places.

0:01:020:01:04

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

0:01:040:01:08

Perhaps you might like to do a spot of horse riding or maybe

0:01:080:01:11

-a bit of gardening like me.

-BELL RINGS

0:01:110:01:15

Someone's got in touch. Shall we see who it is?

0:01:150:01:18

Hello, my name is Hannah.

0:01:190:01:21

I like playing in my garden.

0:01:210:01:24

I love playing with my Hula Hoop.

0:01:270:01:32

I really like doing that.

0:01:320:01:34

I like watering my flowers.

0:01:350:01:38

I like bouncing on my trampoline.

0:01:420:01:46

I love where I live!

0:01:460:01:48

I can see the Falkirk Wheel from my house.

0:01:510:01:54

The Falkirk Wheel is a huge lift but not for people, for boats.

0:01:560:02:01

Today, I'm going to the canal with my friends Ben and Prasoon.

0:02:040:02:09

BOAT HORN HONKS

0:02:090:02:11

It would be great if you came along, Mr Bloom.

0:02:130:02:16

ALL: Yay!

0:02:160:02:19

Eh, well, that'd be grand. Best be on my way then.

0:02:190:02:23

# Whereabouts will I end up next?

0:02:300:02:33

# Let's put my routefinder to the test

0:02:340:02:37

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

0:02:390:02:41

# Museum or a school, a garden so pretty

0:02:410:02:44

# A church or a station, a river or town

0:02:440:02:46

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

0:02:460:02:49

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way

0:02:490:02:53

# So, where am I today? #

0:02:530:02:57

Now, I wonder where Hannah and her friends are.

0:03:080:03:12

ALL: We're over here, Mr Bloom.

0:03:120:03:15

Oh, hello.

0:03:150:03:17

I'll come round.

0:03:170:03:18

-Hey! Hello there, tiddlers.

-ALL: Hello, Mr Bloom.

0:03:260:03:30

Thanks for inviting me, Hannah.

0:03:300:03:32

It's nice to see you, Prasoon, and you, Ben.

0:03:320:03:35

And it's lucky that bridge was there.

0:03:350:03:37

Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to come over.

0:03:370:03:41

Although it might cause a few problems for that fella.

0:03:410:03:44

How's he going to get his boat under that low bridge? What can we do?

0:03:450:03:49

We could move the bridge over that way because it's a swing bridge.

0:03:490:03:56

-I see, so does the bridge swing open?

-Yeah.

0:03:560:03:59

I see and then he can get his boat through.

0:03:590:04:02

Come on then, let's go.

0:04:020:04:03

One, two, three, heave!

0:04:050:04:08

Push, push, push!

0:04:080:04:11

There we are, push, that's it.

0:04:110:04:13

Come on, muscle man Ben, that's good going.

0:04:130:04:17

Come on, Prasoon, you can do it. All right, that's it, now we're cooking.

0:04:170:04:22

Very good. Now, stop pushing. Good work.

0:04:220:04:27

Hey, look, he can go through now.

0:04:280:04:30

There he goes.

0:04:300:04:32

Give him a wave.

0:04:330:04:34

Right.

0:04:340:04:36

So, now that boat's gone through, we need to put the bridge back.

0:04:360:04:39

Push! That's it.

0:04:390:04:41

Oh, you are strong tiddlers.

0:04:430:04:46

Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!

0:04:490:04:52

Now the bridge has swung back, people can cross the canal

0:04:520:04:55

and the boat continues on its way towards the lock.

0:04:550:04:59

Come here, Mr Bloom. The boat's going into the lock.

0:05:000:05:04

Hey. Sorry, tiddlers.

0:05:040:05:06

I was getting a brolly and my coat cos of this rain.

0:05:060:05:10

Oh, look. So what's going on here?

0:05:100:05:12

The boat's in the lock.

0:05:120:05:15

It's a kind of boat lift.

0:05:150:05:17

The gates close behind it.

0:05:180:05:20

It works like a bathtub.

0:05:210:05:23

You fill it up with water.

0:05:260:05:28

The water level rises.

0:05:290:05:32

It helps the boat to go from down low to up high.

0:05:340:05:39

The front gates open.

0:05:410:05:43

The boat goes through.

0:05:450:05:47

It takes a long time for this one boat to go through the lock,

0:05:470:05:51

-doesn't it?

-The Wheel's much faster.

0:05:510:05:53

Yeah, well, look at that.

0:05:550:05:56

I'm so excited about riding on that Wheel.

0:05:560:05:59

-Shall we climb aboard?

-ALL: Yeah!

-Follow me.

0:05:590:06:02

Under the umbrella, let's go.

0:06:020:06:03

Let's get on this boat.

0:06:030:06:05

Here we go, tiddlers, we're going into the Falkirk Wheel.

0:06:090:06:13

-Are we going to go down?

-No, we'll go up!

0:06:140:06:17

We are, we're going to go up.

0:06:170:06:19

That's right.

0:06:190:06:20

The Wheel will take us from this low-down part of the canal to

0:06:200:06:24

another part of the canal that's much higher up.

0:06:240:06:27

Oh, here we go.

0:06:270:06:29

We're going high.

0:06:310:06:33

Oh, look at that one!

0:06:370:06:39

-Oh, look, we can see the side of the wheel, can't we?

-Yeah.

0:06:390:06:43

You know what, tiddlers?

0:06:430:06:45

-I think we're reaching halfway.

-Halfway?

0:06:450:06:47

Yeah, we're not quite at the top and we're not quite at the bottom.

0:06:470:06:52

-That's a big hill.

-That's right, Prasoon, it is a big hill.

0:06:520:06:57

Look, Hannah, look out there.

0:06:570:06:59

-I can see the top of the Falkirk Wheel.

-Well done, Prasoon.

0:07:010:07:06

I think we're nearly there.

0:07:130:07:15

Hey, tiddlers, we've arrived at the top of the Falkirk Wheel.

0:07:200:07:24

We're now as high as eight double-decker buses all

0:07:240:07:27

piled on top of one another.

0:07:270:07:29

And we can see a lot more from up here, can't we?

0:07:330:07:36

Hannah, can you see your house? Do you know where it might be?

0:07:360:07:40

-That way.

-Really? That way?

0:07:400:07:43

-What can you see, Prasoon?

-We can see the tower!

0:07:430:07:46

The tower, yeah, the electricity pylons.

0:07:460:07:48

-I can see the signal of the boat.

-That's right.

0:07:480:07:52

Hey, look, the traffic light has changed from red.

0:07:520:07:55

-What's it changed to?

-Green.

-Green and green means we can...?

-Go.

0:07:550:08:01

-Go through.

-Yeah!

0:08:010:08:02

And, tiddlers, do you know canals were made by people?

0:08:030:08:08

Yeah, they dug them out.

0:08:080:08:10

And in the old days, do you know what people used canals for?

0:08:100:08:13

They helped people get from one place to another.

0:08:130:08:16

That's right and they could carry all sorts of things that

0:08:160:08:20

people needed from city to city.

0:08:200:08:23

And do you know how canal boats used to move?

0:08:230:08:25

-Do you know what they were pulled by?

-Horses.

-Horses, that's right.

0:08:250:08:30

-BELL RINGS

-Ooh.

0:08:300:08:33

Ah, look, it's the routefinder and I think it wants to show us

0:08:330:08:37

more about canals.

0:08:370:08:39

Ah, would you look at that?

0:08:390:08:41

A horse helping to pull a barge a long time ago.

0:08:410:08:45

Now, horses can still help but nowadays,

0:08:450:08:49

canal boats are powered by engines.

0:08:490:08:53

Some boats carry cargo.

0:08:530:08:56

Some people even live on canal boats.

0:08:560:08:59

They often paint their boats with colourful pictures

0:08:590:09:02

and put plant pots and flowers on the roof.

0:09:020:09:05

These tiddlers are showing us their boat.

0:09:080:09:12

There's a living room,

0:09:120:09:13

a kitchen,

0:09:130:09:15

somewhere to wash...

0:09:150:09:18

..and somewhere to sleep.

0:09:190:09:21

A floating home that can travel to all sorts of places.

0:09:240:09:28

Now, that sounds like fun to me.

0:09:280:09:30

We've been all the way up and now, we're back down again.

0:09:350:09:39

Oh, I tell you, tiddlers,

0:09:410:09:43

that Falkirk Wheel is a very clever invention, don't you think?

0:09:430:09:46

ALL: Yeah.

0:09:460:09:48

And all the colourful boats can travel on it.

0:09:480:09:51

-How about we make some boats of our own?

-ALL: Yeah!

0:09:510:09:54

I bet we can make them really colourful, couldn't we?

0:09:540:09:57

Come on, Ben, you lead on.

0:09:570:09:59

We're going to make a plastic bottle boat, that'll be fun, eh, tiddlers?

0:10:020:10:07

ALL: Yeah.

0:10:070:10:09

We've got an empty bottle and some things to decorate it with.

0:10:090:10:13

Now, let's start with these stickers. There we go.

0:10:130:10:16

Eh, tiddlers, do you remember that boat that the routefinder showed us?

0:10:170:10:22

What was on top?

0:10:220:10:23

-ALL: Flowerpots.

-Flowerpots, yeah, they had some flowers in.

0:10:230:10:28

Next, we can make a sail and we can draw pictures on them.

0:10:280:10:33

I'm drawing me.

0:10:330:10:34

-I'm going to draw a rose.

-A rose? Oh, very nice.

0:10:360:10:41

We have to put dried rice in the bottle

0:10:410:10:44

and that'll stop our boats from tipping over.

0:10:440:10:47

Top job.

0:10:470:10:49

So, all we need to do now is we need to put our sail onto our boat

0:10:530:10:58

and then we're ready to set sail.

0:10:580:11:00

The water park's the perfect place to try out our boats.

0:11:100:11:15

So, Prasoon, where's your boat going to go?

0:11:150:11:17

I'm going to put the boat on top of the water

0:11:170:11:20

and then the boat will go from up high to down low.

0:11:200:11:26

Woo-hoo!

0:11:260:11:28

It sailed right through.

0:11:280:11:30

And if you open this gate, it'll go even further down. Let's go.

0:11:300:11:34

Open...the gates!

0:11:340:11:37

-It's like those locks we saw earlier on.

-Yeah.

0:11:370:11:41

Well, I have had a fantastic time at the Falkirk Wheel today, tiddlers.

0:11:450:11:50

It's time I was off now but join me soon when I'll be...

0:11:500:11:53

ALL: Here and there.

0:11:530:11:55

-Bye-bye, tiddlers.

-ALL: Bye!

0:11:550:11:58

# Where is it you like to go?

0:11:590:12:02

# Call me up and let me know

0:12:020:12:04

# What is it you like to do?

0:12:040:12:07

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:12:070:12:09

# Cities, towns or countryside

0:12:090:12:11

# I can travel far and wide

0:12:110:12:13

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:12:130:12:16

# I'm here and there. #

0:12:160:12:18

Hannah, Ben and Prasoon love to visit the Falkirk Wheel near where they live. Mr Bloom joins them to find out about how boats can travel up and down hill on canals. They then make little boats of their own to float in the water park.
