0:00:240:00:27

Whose family are we going to meet today?

0:00:310:00:33

Finlay's!

0:00:360:00:37

Finlay is five years old.

0:00:400:00:43

He lives in Scotland, in the countryside, with his mum,

0:00:430:00:47

dad and little brother Ellis.

0:00:470:00:52

I wonder what they're up to today?

0:00:520:00:54

OK, Finlay - you pass me the tuna wraps for the picnic.

0:00:590:01:03

There we go.

0:01:030:01:05

Finlay and Mum are packing for an adventure.

0:01:050:01:08

-Where are we going today? On a...

-Ferry.

-Ferry!

0:01:090:01:13

They're off to a nearby island to explore.

0:01:130:01:17

-What's at the top of the hill? Remember, we walk up.

-A volcano!

0:01:170:01:20

A volcano.

0:01:200:01:21

First, it's into the car to get to the ferry.

0:01:220:01:25

And here comes the ferry!

0:01:330:01:35

Ferry boats have lots of space for people and cars.

0:01:370:01:41

Whilst the boat travels across the sea,

0:01:440:01:47

Finlay and his family are on the lookout.

0:01:470:01:49

Wow!

0:01:510:01:52

-What can you see, Finlay?

-Houses.

-Houses.

0:01:530:01:56

Can you see a volcano?

0:01:570:02:00

Yes, I already saw that.

0:02:000:02:02

-You can see the volcano?

-What noise do you think it makes?

0:02:020:02:04

THEY IMITATE EXPLOSIONS

0:02:040:02:07

It hasn't made that noise for thousands of years, Finlay,

0:02:090:02:12

because it's extinct.

0:02:120:02:14

It's not long before the ferry arrives at the island.

0:02:150:02:18

THEY CHEER

0:02:180:02:20

-We're here!

-We're here!

0:02:200:02:22

Which way are you going to go?

0:02:220:02:24

Right, up the hill - straight up.

0:02:260:02:29

Wow!

0:02:290:02:31

A cannon!

0:02:310:02:32

The cannon was used to defend the castle.

0:02:320:02:35

Finlay decides it still needs defending.

0:02:350:02:38

-You be a lookout over there.

-Right.

-I'll check the cannons.

0:02:400:02:44

Maybe he's right.

0:02:440:02:46

-Dad spots trouble at sea.

-Finlay, I can see a boat!

0:02:460:02:50

-Shout, "Pirates!"

-Pirates!

-Pirates?

0:02:500:02:52

Battle stations, everyone!

0:02:520:02:55

HE IMITATES GUNSHOTS

0:02:550:02:57

Cover your ears!

0:02:570:02:59

-That's right, cover our ears!

-FIRE!

0:02:590:03:02

HE SQUEALS

0:03:040:03:06

That's a few pirate ships sunk.

0:03:060:03:08

Dad, can you see any more?

0:03:080:03:11

There's more over there, in the white boat - quick! Get them!

0:03:110:03:14

They'll be ashore soon, quick!

0:03:140:03:16

Hurry up!

0:03:160:03:17

Peeow!

0:03:180:03:21

Oh, no, Dad, they've sunk!

0:03:230:03:26

-Pirates coming!

-It's not over yet.

0:03:260:03:29

Some of the pirates have managed to swim to shore!

0:03:290:03:32

Are you ready, pirates?

0:03:330:03:36

For we shall attack you! Avast!

0:03:360:03:41

ALL: Attack!

0:03:410:03:42

Get them, Ellis! Get them!

0:03:460:03:48

Help me!

0:03:520:03:54

The pirates are defeated!

0:03:560:03:58

Finlay pretends to be hurt.

0:03:580:04:00

He's OK, Ellis!

0:04:020:04:04

-Dad, we defeated him!

-Are they gone?

-Yes!

-Well done.

-Did we win?

0:04:060:04:11

Yes, we won!

0:04:110:04:13

It's hungry work, fighting off pirates.

0:04:130:04:16

How about some lunch?

0:04:160:04:17

What a perfect spot for lunch -

0:04:220:04:25

right in front of the castle ruins.

0:04:250:04:27

It's tuna wraps all round.

0:04:290:04:31

Finlay's favourite. I am hungry!

0:04:310:04:35

So what can you see from up here, Finlay?

0:04:350:04:37

-The castle.

-Mm-hm. It's not a very big castle any more, is it?

-No.

0:04:380:04:43

It's a ruin.

0:04:430:04:45

-A ruin now?

-It's all broken down.

-How did it get broken?

0:04:450:04:49

Hundreds of years ago, maybe some people came and broke it.

0:04:490:04:52

Some Highland Warriors.

0:04:520:04:54

The men that used to be in that castle

0:04:540:04:56

would wear kilts in the olden days.

0:04:560:04:58

Do you think you would like to live in those days in a castle like that?

0:04:580:05:02

-No.

-And wear a kilt all the time?

-Because I would have to, like...

0:05:020:05:05

-..wear the same thing every day.

-Yeah. You would.

0:05:070:05:11

-Mum, let's go and explore!

-Do some more exploring? Come on, then.

0:05:120:05:16

Finlay's found the island play park.

0:05:240:05:26

-Hold on tight!

-Aaah!

0:05:280:05:31

Dad spins Finlay until he's dizzy!

0:05:310:05:34

Aaah!

0:05:340:05:37

-Ellis is happy on the swings.

-Can you give Mum a kiss?

0:05:420:05:46

SHE BLOWS KISSES

0:05:460:05:48

-Dad, stop it, stop it!

-Why?

0:05:490:05:51

I cannae! It won't stop! I'm trying!

0:05:510:05:54

-It doesn't LOOK like you're trying to stop, Dad!

-It's going too fast!

0:05:540:05:58

I think it's going to take off!

0:05:580:06:01

Am I going to get one?

0:06:010:06:03

Got one!

0:06:040:06:06

Again?

0:06:070:06:09

There's even a swing for two!

0:06:090:06:12

THEY SQUEAL

0:06:120:06:13

After all that play, how about some food at Hotel Finlay?

0:06:190:06:23

Is it open?

0:06:230:06:25

-Hi!

-Hi!

-Sorry I'm late today.

0:06:250:06:27

Well, you did take your time, we've been waiting a while.

0:06:270:06:30

-What do you want for your breakfast?

-For my breakfast? Sausage, eggs...

0:06:300:06:35

Sausage, eggs...

0:06:350:06:36

-..bacon, haggis.

-We don't have haggis.

0:06:360:06:40

-Haggis? Is there no haggis running around today?

-No.

-Oh, right, OK.

0:06:400:06:44

Then I'll have some beans, please.

0:06:440:06:46

-Some black pudding.

-Er, do you want fillet beans or potatoes?

0:06:460:06:52

-Do you have baked beans?

-Um...

-Baked beans, please.

0:06:520:06:54

You'll need to hurry up and cook so I can get on my ferry.

0:06:540:06:58

Thank you.

0:07:000:07:02

This is tasty. It's the best breakfast I've ever had.

0:07:020:07:04

-Right, I'm off to catch my ferry now. Bye!

-Bye!

0:07:040:07:08

It's time for everyone to catch the ferry home, Mum.

0:07:080:07:12

What a lovely island trip.

0:07:120:07:14

Back at home, it starts to rain.

0:07:220:07:25

Perfect weather for Finlay's favourite game.

0:07:250:07:29

I wonder if we're going to get wet?

0:07:290:07:31

Well, I think we're going to get pretty wet,

0:07:310:07:33

but the waterproofs will keep us as dry as we can, won't they?

0:07:330:07:36

-Let's go, Dad!

-Let's go! Lead the way.

0:07:390:07:42

All they need for this game is a tennis ball.

0:07:420:07:45

Right, go up the hill.

0:07:450:07:47

Watch your feet. Step onto the cross.

0:07:480:07:50

-It's a really good day for this, isn't it, Dad?

-Perfect day for this.

0:07:520:07:56

Oh, la!

0:07:560:07:59

-We'll manage it no bother, won't we?

-Yes.

-Right, let's go up the hill.

0:07:590:08:03

They're going to put the ball into the stream at the top

0:08:050:08:08

of the hill and race it to the bottom!

0:08:080:08:11

Ready? Steady... Go!

0:08:110:08:14

We're off! Ready? Hold hands.

0:08:140:08:17

THEY LAUGH

0:08:170:08:21

Yeah!

0:08:230:08:24

Finlay and Dad go as fast as they can!

0:08:270:08:30

-The tennis ball is speeding down the stream.

-Here it comes!

0:08:320:08:36

Reach out...

0:08:370:08:39

-Get it, Dad!

-Oh!

0:08:390:08:41

Oh, no!

0:08:410:08:42

Oh, no!

0:08:420:08:44

Oh, no! Get it!

0:08:440:08:47

-Stuck!

-Oh, good catch, Dad!

-Yes, Dad!

0:08:470:08:50

That was a CRAZY one!

0:08:500:08:54

Off they go again!

0:08:550:08:57

Three...two...one...go!

0:08:570:09:02

Are we going to go faster?

0:09:020:09:04

Right, we're off!

0:09:050:09:06

THEY LAUGH

0:09:100:09:12

-Can you see it?

-No.

0:09:130:09:16

Finlay and Dad are too quick for the ball!

0:09:160:09:19

Oh, I see it coming!

0:09:190:09:21

Here it comes...

0:09:210:09:23

Gotcha!

0:09:230:09:25

Well done!

0:09:260:09:28

-Dad, now MY hand is soaking wet!

-Yeah!

0:09:280:09:31

Whoa!

0:09:330:09:35

Oops! You've dropped the ball, Finlay!

0:09:350:09:37

Here it comes...

0:09:480:09:50

-Oh, no!

-Whoa! It's gone again!

0:09:540:09:57

It's stuck! No! No!

0:09:570:10:00

Ahhhh!

0:10:020:10:03

HE SHOUTS EXCITEDLY

0:10:100:10:13

-Dad's finally got the ball back.

-You've done well.

0:10:150:10:18

-We're soaking wet! We'll go inside for a heat up and a cup of tea.

-Yep.

0:10:180:10:21

Come on, then - let's go.

0:10:210:10:23

I wonder who we're going to meet next time on Our Family?

0:10:260:10:30

This heart-warming series continues, following the lives of young children and their families from a variety of backgrounds across the UK.

There's an adventure in store for Finlay and his family when they travel on a ferry to a nearby island. After climbing up to a castle ruin, it's not long before Finlay finds an old cannon and plays at fighting off imaginary pirate ships!

Back at home, Finlay and Dad enjoy one of their favourite games of chasing a tennis ball down the stream. But which is quicker - Finlay or the ball?
