-Once upon a time,

-the world was one large island.

0:00:520:00:56

-It's the truth.

0:00:560:00:58

-At one time, all the countries were

-squashed together in one big lump.

0:00:580:01:04

-There was only one country

-on the map.

0:01:040:01:07

-To be honest, it was easy

-to draw a picture of it.

0:01:070:01:11

-The people who drew maps loved it.

0:01:110:01:14

-If you wanted to go sailing,

-you'd never get lost.

0:01:140:01:18

-All you had to do was sail

-towards any land mass...

0:01:180:01:22

-..and you'd be home.

0:01:220:01:24

-There was no such thing

-as discovering new countries.

0:01:240:01:30

-Everything was on one island.

0:01:300:01:32

-This happened at a time many

-people know as once upon a time.

0:01:470:01:52

-Now then, once upon a time...

0:01:530:01:57

-..a lot of people

-had a very stupid idea.

0:01:580:02:02

-But we'll talk about that later.

0:02:020:02:04

-You see, this large island

-was a wonderful place.

0:02:120:02:17

-There were areas covered in jungle.

0:02:170:02:20

-Everyone called them...

-well, jungles.

0:02:200:02:23

-There were areas covered in snow.

0:02:270:02:29

-There were areas

-where it always rained.

0:02:330:02:36

-There were areas

-where it never rained.

0:02:380:02:41

-The island had every animal,

-bird and insect.

0:02:430:02:47

-They could wander

-wherever they wanted to go.

0:02:470:02:51

-Everywhere was easy to reach.

0:02:540:02:56

-All you had to do was walk...

0:02:560:02:59

-..or run if you were very fit.

0:03:000:03:02

-Soon, you'd reach

-your chosen destination.

0:03:020:03:05

-You'd think that living here

-would make someone happy.

0:03:070:03:13

-But it didn't.

0:03:130:03:14

-Some people had no idea

-how to be happy...

0:03:150:03:19

-..even on the happiest day

-full of happiness.

0:03:190:03:23

-They'd say, "Oh, it's too happy.

0:03:230:03:27

-"I'd like happiness

-to be less happy."

0:03:270:03:32

-The people who lived on this

-large island were no different.

0:03:320:03:37

-For some, it was too hot.

0:03:440:03:47

-For others, it was too cold.

0:03:510:03:53

-Some didn't like the areas

-that were too wet.

0:03:570:04:01

-Others didn't like the areas

-that were too dry.

0:04:020:04:06

-In some places,

-people would say it was too flat.

0:04:090:04:13

-Others would say

-it was too mountainous.

0:04:150:04:18

-Too many mountains.

0:04:210:04:23

-Too much snow.

0:04:230:04:25

-Too many trees.

0:04:270:04:29

-Too much sand.

0:04:300:04:32

-This island had many

-kings and queens.

0:04:430:04:45

-Kings and queens are good

-at living in castles...

0:04:490:04:53

-..and having lots of money.

0:04:530:04:56

-But they're not as good

-at being sensible.

0:04:560:04:59

-The reason for this

-is that everyone does...

0:04:590:05:03

-..what kings and queens

-ask them to do.

0:05:030:05:05

-If a king wants anything,

-no matter how silly it is...

0:05:120:05:16

-..no-one replies, "Do you know what,

-I think that's a bad idea."

0:05:160:05:20

-If they did, the king would

-throw them down a dungeon forever.

0:05:210:05:26

-And so, a king or queen

-never think they have a bad idea.

0:05:260:05:32

-Well, now then...

0:05:320:05:34

-..we're getting close to the part

-where lots of people had a bad idea.

0:05:340:05:40

-Once a year, all the kings

-and queens on the island...

0:05:450:05:50

-..would meet for a party.

0:05:510:05:53

-They did this

-right in the middle of the island.

0:05:560:05:59

-They came from all over to eat food

-and drink lakes of royal drinks.

0:06:000:06:07

-They'd tell each other about

-all the great ideas they'd had...

0:06:070:06:12

-..how many diamonds

-they had in their crowns...

0:06:120:06:16

-..and how large their thrones were.

0:06:160:06:19

-But this year

-was a little bit different.

0:06:200:06:23

-You see,

-one of the queens wasn't happy...

0:06:230:06:27

-..even on the one day of the week

-when all the kings and queens...

0:06:280:06:32

-..were having their wonderful party

-on such a monumental day.

0:06:320:06:37

-She was sad and angry.

0:06:370:06:40

-"What's wrong with you, Queen?"

-asked one of the kings.

0:06:400:06:45

-She probably had a name...

0:06:450:06:47

-..but kings and queens

-never ask people for their names.

0:06:480:06:51

-They're too important

-and rich to do that.

0:06:520:06:56

-"Where I live is too hot,"

-she complained.

0:06:560:07:02

-"I can't go out during the day

-and I can't sleep at night.

0:07:020:07:06

-"Why couldn't it be colder?"

0:07:060:07:08

-"That's nothing," replied the king.

0:07:090:07:12

-"Where I live is cold all day.

-It's even colder at night.

0:07:130:07:17

-"I hate living there. I'd like to

-live somewhere that's always hot."

0:07:170:07:22

-"You could always move,"

-said another king.

0:07:220:07:26

-He was listening

-while waiting for his jelly.

0:07:260:07:29

-"Move?" replied the king and queen,

-"Never."

0:07:300:07:34

-Then they started discussing

-why they should never move.

0:07:340:07:39

-The weather should move!

0:07:400:07:43

-Another king joined

-the conversation.

0:07:480:07:50

-"I hate mountains."

0:07:500:07:52

-Another queen said, "I don't

-like animals with long necks."

0:07:530:07:58

-Another shouted, "It always rains."

0:07:590:08:02

-Soon, everyone was arguing

-and complaining.

0:08:020:08:07

-If that wasn't enough,

-one king thought...

0:08:070:08:10

-..this was a great opportunity

-for him to have his own way.

0:08:100:08:14

-He shouted, "I think it's time

-the island had a name.

0:08:140:08:19

-"It should be named after me -

-King Aneurin Wyn Adal V."

0:08:200:08:25

-Well, the place erupted.

-What a mess.

0:08:260:08:30

-They all wanted the island

-named after themselves.

0:08:300:08:36

-France, America, Spain, Wales.

0:08:360:08:40

-This is when

-the silly idea happened.

0:08:420:08:45

-The kings and queens decided...

0:08:460:08:49

-..that they didn't want

-to live on an island...

0:08:490:08:53

-..with another king or queen.

0:08:530:08:55

-Do you know what they did?

0:08:550:08:57

-They sent a royal message

-to the people saying...

0:08:580:09:02

-.."We're moving.

0:09:020:09:04

-"If you want to come,

-meet me at the castle at eight."

0:09:040:09:09

-"Move? Where to?" asked the people

-who lived on the island.

0:09:110:09:16

-Everyone who liked hot weather

-went to one castle.

0:09:170:09:22

-Everyone who liked cold weather

-went to another castle.

0:09:230:09:26

-Everyone who liked giraffes

-and gorillas went to this castle.

0:09:260:09:31

-Everyone who liked deserts

-went to that castle.

0:09:310:09:34

-Soon, all the people were at

-the castle they preferred.

0:09:340:09:38

-Then, at the request

-of the kings and queens...

0:09:390:09:42

-..they built a million ships.

0:09:420:09:45

-When they were ready, they sawed

-the land around the castle...

0:09:450:09:51

-..and as they did this,

-land broke away from the island.

0:09:510:09:55

-When it started breaking,

-they threw ropes around the ships.

0:10:020:10:08

-The ships pulled the small islands

-away from each other.

0:10:080:10:12

-The people waved to one another

-as the islands were pulled apart.

0:10:180:10:23

-But the kings and queens didn't.

0:10:230:10:26

-They were still angry

-with one another.

0:10:260:10:29

-When they were happy

-with their position...

0:10:340:10:37

-..they cut the ropes

-and the islands stopped moving.

0:10:370:10:41

-They're still in the same place

-to this day.

0:10:490:10:52

-You can see them all on a world map.

0:10:540:10:56

-That's the thing about silly ideas.

0:10:570:11:00

-Sometimes, they work.
