-CHILD'S VOICE:

-Hello, Mr Tumble.

-A-ha! It's my friends!

0:00:020:00:05

Take your hand, give it a go.

0:00:050:00:08

Move it around and say hello.

0:00:080:00:11

# Hello, hello

0:00:170:00:19

# How are you?

0:00:190:00:21

# Hello, hello

0:00:210:00:23

# It's good to see you

0:00:230:00:27

# I say hello

0:00:270:00:29

# To you and all your friends

0:00:290:00:32

# I say hello

0:00:320:00:35

# Let's meet them together

0:00:350:00:37

# Let's play together

0:00:370:00:39

# Let's have fun with friends! #

0:00:390:00:46

We're all friends!

0:00:460:00:48

Hey! Hello, my friends. How are you today?

0:00:510:00:56

I've come here to Bristol to meet my friends.

0:00:560:01:00

Hmm, I wonder what Mr Tumble is doing today.

0:01:000:01:06

I'm playing - look -

0:01:060:01:09

with my Tumble Tap.

0:01:090:01:12

The Tumble Tap is fantastic!

0:01:120:01:15

Yes! Oh, it's great!

0:01:150:01:18

What you do is tap a spot and you see a picture.

0:01:180:01:24

Justin and his friends are going to love that.

0:01:240:01:27

Oh, yes, they will!

0:01:270:01:30

Put it in the spotty bag, then, Mr Tumble.

0:01:300:01:33

Oh, OK.

0:01:330:01:36

HE SINGS

0:01:360:01:40

Don't forget the magic.

0:01:400:01:43

Magic?

0:01:430:01:44

Yes, the magic.

0:01:440:01:46

To send the spotty bag to Justin and his friends.

0:01:460:01:49

Oh, yes! The magic!

0:01:490:01:53

Um, well, er...

0:01:530:01:56

You are my friends.

0:01:560:01:58

So, will you help me?

0:01:580:02:00

Take your finger and touch your nose.

0:02:020:02:06

Blink three times and off it goes.

0:02:060:02:09

Take your finger and touch your nose.

0:02:180:02:22

Blink three times and off it goes.

0:02:220:02:27

Hey! Look, it's Mr Tumble's spotty bag. Thank you!

0:02:330:02:39

And over here...are my friends.

0:02:390:02:44

Hello there!

0:02:440:02:46

Hi. Now this is Taylor. Hello, Taylor.

0:02:460:02:49

Hi, good to see you. And over here we have...Heidi!

0:02:510:02:56

Hello, Heidi. Hello.

0:02:560:02:58

Look at all of these beautiful flowers.

0:02:580:03:02

Now, what colours can you see up here?

0:03:020:03:06

That's right, Heidi. These flowers are red.

0:03:060:03:11

Did you know that the flowers have lots of friends?

0:03:110:03:18

Yes. They're creatures.

0:03:180:03:20

Oh-ho-ho.

0:03:200:03:21

I...wonder

0:03:210:03:24

what creatures we are going to see today.

0:03:240:03:27

I think we should have a look inside

0:03:270:03:30

Mr Tumble's spotty bag.

0:03:300:03:34

Excellent! And find out, eh?

0:03:340:03:37

Oh, look, it's the Tumble Tap.

0:03:370:03:39

OK, Taylor, would you like to tap the spot?

0:03:390:03:43

There you go.

0:03:430:03:45

What's that?

0:03:450:03:46

Butterfly...

0:03:460:03:47

Butterfly.

0:03:470:03:49

That's right. It's a butterfly!

0:03:490:03:53

Where's the butterfly?

0:03:560:03:58

It's somewhere here.

0:03:580:03:59

When you see it, wave or cheer.

0:03:590:04:02

Well done, Heidi and Taylor. You found the butterfly.

0:04:020:04:05

Can YOU see the butterfly?

0:04:050:04:08

Yes, there's the butterfly.

0:04:080:04:10

It's time to sign!

0:04:100:04:13

Ah, look.

0:04:140:04:16

Butterfly.

0:04:160:04:17

You sign.

0:04:180:04:20

Butterfly.

0:04:200:04:22

Butterfly.

0:04:230:04:25

Butterfly.

0:04:280:04:30

Wow!

0:04:340:04:36

Have a look over there, Heidi.

0:04:360:04:39

It's a beautiful butterfly. Can you do the sign for butterfly?

0:04:390:04:44

Well done!

0:04:440:04:46

It's really big, too!

0:04:460:04:49

Now, then, can you see that on its wing

0:04:490:04:52

it's got a spot? Can you see that?

0:04:520:04:55

It looks a bit like...

0:04:550:04:57

It looks like the spots on the spotty bag, doesn't it?

0:04:570:05:00

Well, did you know that the butterfly's wings

0:05:000:05:05

are exactly the same as each other? Yes.

0:05:050:05:08

Now, would you like

0:05:080:05:11

to paint a picture of a butterfly?

0:05:110:05:15

Would that be good? OK, Heidi, let's go.

0:05:150:05:20

Hey!

0:05:200:05:23

Hello, Taylor.

0:05:230:05:24

How are you doing?

0:05:240:05:26

Good to see you.

0:05:260:05:28

Right, Heidi, are we ready

0:05:280:05:30

to paint a picture of a butterfly? Yes?

0:05:300:05:36

Off you go.

0:05:360:05:37

There's a really fun way to paint a butterfly picture.

0:05:370:05:41

We're going to paint just one butterfly wing.

0:05:410:05:44

We'll do some spots, some yellow.

0:05:440:05:47

Yellow.

0:05:470:05:48

Excellent. What about a spot up there as well?

0:05:500:05:53

Now, here comes the clever part. We're going to fold the paper over

0:05:560:06:00

like that, OK?

0:06:000:06:03

We're going to press it down.

0:06:030:06:05

That's it. Very good.

0:06:060:06:09

And then we're going to open it up and what do we get?

0:06:090:06:14

That's right! We get a butterfly!

0:06:150:06:18

And its wings are exactly the same, just like a real butterfly.

0:06:180:06:22

Heidi, look at that!

0:06:220:06:24

Wow! Girls, your butterfly pictures are fantastic!

0:06:240:06:30

Did you enjoy that? High-five!

0:06:300:06:34

You know what, lots of creatures have beautiful wings, don't they?

0:06:340:06:39

Yes.

0:06:390:06:41

Talking of which, I wonder

0:06:410:06:43

what Mr Tumble wants us to look for next.

0:06:430:06:49

Shall we have a look inside

0:06:490:06:51

Mr Tumble's spotty bag?

0:06:510:06:57

OK! And find out?

0:06:570:06:58

It's the Tumble Tap! OK, I think Heidi wants to tap it.

0:06:580:07:02

Would you like to tap the spot? Tap it.

0:07:020:07:05

What have you got there?

0:07:050:07:07

Bird.

0:07:070:07:08

That's right. It's a bird!

0:07:080:07:11

Where's the bird? It's somewhere here.

0:07:140:07:17

When you see it, wave or cheer.

0:07:170:07:21

-THEY CHEER

-Well done, Heidi. Well done, Taylor.

0:07:210:07:25

You found the bird.

0:07:250:07:26

Can YOU see the bird?

0:07:260:07:28

Yes, there's the bird.

0:07:280:07:30

It's time to sign.

0:07:300:07:34

Ah, look!

0:07:350:07:36

Bird.

0:07:360:07:38

-You sign.

-Bird.

0:07:380:07:40

Bird.

0:07:420:07:44

Well done, James.

0:07:440:07:45

Bird.

0:07:470:07:48

Great stuff, Tula.

0:07:480:07:50

BIRDS SQUAWK

0:07:510:07:54

Well, girls, here we are. We've found the birds, haven't we?

0:07:580:08:03

Yes. Now, these birds are called lorikeets.

0:08:030:08:08

Yes, and do you know what they are?

0:08:080:08:10

They are small parrots.

0:08:100:08:13

And we're going to feed them because they're very hungry!

0:08:130:08:19

Yes.

0:08:190:08:20

So, inside the spotty bag I've got some food to give them.

0:08:200:08:25

Heidi, would you like to hold some?

0:08:250:08:27

There. Taylor, you hold that one. There you go.

0:08:270:08:31

What we have to do is hold the pot out like that

0:08:310:08:34

and then the birds will come down and eat it.

0:08:340:08:38

Here they come!

0:08:380:08:40

Ha! These birds are very hungry.

0:08:500:08:53

That's it. There you go.

0:08:530:08:56

Now, have a look at these beautiful birds.

0:08:560:09:00

-Can you see the bird, Taylor?

-SHE LAUGHS

0:09:050:09:09

What colour are they?

0:09:090:09:11

What do you think?

0:09:110:09:13

That's right! They're blue...

0:09:130:09:16

They're green...

0:09:160:09:19

And they've also got some red in them, haven't they?

0:09:190:09:23

They were very hungry. Look, they've eaten all of our food!

0:09:230:09:27

-BELLS CHIME

-Hey, hang on a minute!

0:09:290:09:32

What's that noise?

0:09:320:09:34

You know what? I think it's time for a Tumble Tale.

0:09:340:09:41

Shall we all call for Mr Tumble? Yes? After three, as loud as we can.

0:09:410:09:46

And why don't YOU join in, too? Are you ready?

0:09:460:09:49

One, two, three! Mr Tumble!

0:09:490:09:54

HE BREATHES OUT

0:10:010:10:03

-CHILD'S VOICE:

What's that?

0:10:100:10:12

Oh, ha-ha!

0:10:120:10:14

Now, this is my new trumpet.

0:10:140:10:18

Your new trumpet?

0:10:180:10:20

Yes. I'm going to show it to Grandad Tumble.

0:10:200:10:24

Ho-ho-ho!

0:10:240:10:26

He's going to love it.

Oh! Oh, hello!

0:10:360:10:38

What are you doing?

0:10:380:10:41

Well, I'm taking a photograph.

0:10:410:10:44

What are you going to take a photograph of?

0:10:440:10:47

-Oh, a

-bird!

0:10:470:10:50

-You're taking a photograph of a bird, Grandad Tumble?

-Yes.

0:10:500:10:54

-Yes! The Tumble

-bird!

0:10:560:10:59

I've never seen a Tumble bird, Grandad Tumble.

0:10:590:11:02

Well, it's big and...it's brown.

0:11:020:11:06

Ooh, and it's got a spotty chest.

0:11:060:11:09

I'll tell you something else.

0:11:090:11:11

-It just loves my

-bird

-seed!

0:11:110:11:15

Ho-ho, right. I'll go and put it out. Oh!

0:11:150:11:18

Oop! Oh, that was close!

0:11:200:11:22

Right, down there.

0:11:220:11:24

Hee-hee. A few up there.

0:11:250:11:28

And one for luck. Way-hey!

0:11:280:11:30

Right, then, ha-ha! Now it's the old waiting game.

0:11:330:11:37

Right...

0:11:370:11:39

HE YAWNS

0:11:410:11:42

Don't fall asleep, Grandad Tumble.

0:11:420:11:45

No, no, of course. Don't you worry.

0:11:450:11:48

-I can...

-HE SNORES

0:11:480:11:51

Grandad Tumble? Is that the Tumble bird?

0:11:550:11:58

What? Yes, please. I'd love some lemon curd.

0:11:580:12:01

-The Tumble

-bird?

0:12:010:12:03

-Quick, take a photograph.

-Right, OK. Oh!

0:12:030:12:07

-Right!

-Oh, no, you missed the bird, Grandad Tumble.

0:12:080:12:12

You'll have to stay awake.

0:12:120:12:14

Yes, you're right! Don't you worry. Old Grandad will stay awake...

0:12:140:12:20

HE SNORES

0:12:200:12:22

MR TUMBLE SINGS

0:12:220:12:24

Ha-ha-ha!

0:12:240:12:25

-Hello, Mr Tumble.

-Oh, hello!

0:12:250:12:28

HE SNORES

0:12:300:12:33

HE TAKES DEEPS BREATHS

0:12:330:12:36

Wait, Mr Tumble.

0:12:360:12:38

Stop!

0:12:380:12:40

Grandad Tumble is trying to photograph the Tumble bird.

0:12:400:12:44

We need to stay very quiet.

0:12:440:12:47

-Oh, right. The Tumble

-bird?

0:12:470:12:50

Yes, he wants a photo of the Tumble bird.

0:12:500:12:53

It's a funny bird.

0:12:530:12:55

Oh, it's the boy!

0:12:550:12:57

Oh!

0:12:570:12:59

Oh!

0:13:020:13:03

Shh!

0:13:030:13:05

Oh! Ooh! Dearie me!

0:13:050:13:09

Hang on.

0:13:140:13:16

Oh!

0:13:160:13:17

I missed it again!

0:13:170:13:20

-HE LAUGHS

-Where are you going, Mr Tumble?

0:13:200:13:23

Oh, I've had a good idea.

0:13:230:13:26

Wait...

0:13:260:13:28

TRUMPET PLAYS

0:13:280:13:30

What do we need to do now, Grandad Tumble?

0:13:300:13:33

Well, we have to be quiet. Shh!

0:13:330:13:36

Shh!

0:13:360:13:37

Oh, hang on. What's that?

0:13:400:13:42

HE SQUAWKS

0:13:420:13:44

Oh!

0:13:460:13:48

Oh... It's the boy!

0:13:480:13:52

Oh, he's tricked me!

0:13:520:13:54

Ha-ha. It's the boy. Stay there. I'll take...

0:13:540:13:57

HE SQUAWKS

0:13:570:13:59

Goodbye, Mr Tumble.

0:14:010:14:03

HE SQUAWKS

0:14:030:14:05

THEY LAUGH

0:14:050:14:07

Mr Tumble is...funny!

0:14:070:14:11

Mr Tumble makes Taylor and Heidi - ha-ha-ha - laugh!

0:14:110:14:18

We're having fantastic day today, aren't we?

0:14:180:14:21

Heidi, what have you liked today?

0:14:210:14:23

-Ah, the

-birds.

0:14:230:14:26

What did you like today? What do you think?

0:14:260:14:29

-The

-butterflies?

0:14:290:14:31

I wonder what we're going to do next.

0:14:310:14:35

Why don't we have a look inside Mr Tumble's spotty...

0:14:350:14:41

-Bag!

-That's right.

0:14:410:14:44

OK, Heidi, here's the Tumble Tap.

0:14:440:14:46

Would you like to tap the green spot?

0:14:460:14:49

That's it, that one there. There we go.

0:14:490:14:52

Oh, look, it's some wings!

0:14:520:14:55

Where are the wings? They're somewhere here.

0:14:580:15:01

When you see them, wave or cheer.

0:15:010:15:04

Well done, Heidi.

0:15:040:15:05

Well done, Taylor. You found the wings! Can you see the wings?

0:15:050:15:10

Yes, there are the wings.

0:15:100:15:12

It's time to sign.

0:15:120:15:15

-Ah, look,

-wings.

0:15:150:15:18

You sign wings.

0:15:200:15:22

-Wings.

-Great signing, Georgia!

0:15:250:15:29

-Wings.

-Well done, Yusuf.

0:15:290:15:34

Wow. Look at our beautiful wings.

0:15:360:15:40

Hey, guys, now, what do we look like?

0:15:400:15:43

That's right, we look like birds flapping!

0:15:430:15:47

-And what noise do the birds make?

-Ee-ee!

0:15:470:15:50

That's right, we go rah-rah-rah-rah!

0:15:500:15:53

Come on, guys, let's go and visit some flowers, shall we?

0:15:550:15:59

Are you ready? Off we go.

0:15:590:16:01

Rah-rah-rah! Woo!

0:16:010:16:03

Heidi is visiting the flowers. Well done, Heidi.

0:16:040:16:09

Oh, look, this bee is visiting a flower too.

0:16:090:16:12

Woo-hoo, yeah!

0:16:120:16:15

Taylor and Heidi are great at pretending to be birds.

0:16:150:16:20

The flowers love their friends visiting them.

0:16:200:16:24

I tell you what, we have had a fantastic day today, haven't we?

0:16:240:16:29

-Yes.

-Yeah.

0:16:290:16:30

What have we done, can you remember?

0:16:300:16:33

That's right, we saw some birds and we gave them some food, didn't we?

0:16:330:16:38

Yes, that's right, some nectar. And then what did we see?

0:16:380:16:42

That's right. We saw the beautiful butterflies, didn't we?

0:16:420:16:46

That's right.

0:16:460:16:47

Using a sign language called Makaton, Something Special helps its audience learn how to communicate as well as develop their language in a fun and exciting way. Justin Fletcher presents songs, rhymes and visual humour all centred around themes that are familiar to young children. Justin travels near and far to meet new friends all over the country.

Grandad Tumble has his heart set on taking a photo of a very special bird - but he keeps falling asleep and missing its visit to the bird table. Justin and his friends Taylor and Heidi are much more successful at attracting lorikeets to perch on their arms. The lorikeets are very colourful and friendly!
