Here they come, my two intrepid explorers,

0:00:090:00:13

Charlotte and Elliot.

0:00:130:00:15

I'm their great aunt Lizzie, you see,

0:00:150:00:18

and I wonder which one is coming to see me today.

0:00:180:00:21

Ah, so it's Charlotte's turn.

0:00:230:00:26

Here she comes,

0:00:260:00:27

racing to hear another tale from an epic adventurer.

0:00:270:00:32

TAP! TAP! TAP! TAP!

0:00:320:00:34

And what wonderful adventures they were.

0:00:440:00:47

So long ago and so far away.

0:00:470:00:51

I collected a few souvenirs along the way.

0:00:530:00:57

But my most precious possession of all

0:01:000:01:03

is my extraordinary collection

0:01:030:01:06

of teacups.

0:01:060:01:08

You've still got your coat on, Charlotte. Come on.

0:01:230:01:26

No time to count the clouds, we've got stories to tell.

0:01:260:01:30

Now...

0:01:310:01:32

let's have a lovely cup of tea.

0:01:320:01:35

But first we need...

0:01:380:01:40

A teacup!

0:01:400:01:42

Which one?

0:01:450:01:47

That one.

0:01:590:02:01

Oh.

0:02:010:02:03

The Warrior's Armlet.

0:02:050:02:07

What a choice, Charlotte.

0:02:080:02:10

I do really love that story.

0:02:100:02:12

This will be just perfect to drink now.

0:02:200:02:23

So...

0:02:280:02:30

-are you ready?

-Ready.

0:02:300:02:32

Then let me tell you the story...

0:02:320:02:35

of Great Aunt Lizzie...

0:02:350:02:37

And The Adventure Of The Warrior's Armlet.

0:02:370:02:40

Ahem.

0:02:400:02:42

Oh, yes, of course.

0:02:420:02:44

Let me tell you the story of Charlotte

0:02:440:02:46

And The Adventure Of The Warrior's Armlet.

0:02:460:02:50

It all began long, long ago

0:02:500:02:53

in ancient Britain,

0:02:530:02:55

an island of green forests,

0:02:550:02:57

majestic mountains, silver rivers

0:02:570:02:59

and tiny villages.

0:02:590:03:02

After journeying for days,

0:03:180:03:19

Charlotte found herself one cold, misty morning

0:03:190:03:23

in a small village.

0:03:230:03:24

SINGING

0:03:240:03:27

From nearby, she could hear the sound of a bright voice singing.

0:03:290:03:33

She followed the sound along the muddy path

0:03:330:03:36

until she found a neat little yard

0:03:360:03:39

and a woman decorating a hut with ribbons.

0:03:390:03:43

SINGING CONTINUES

0:03:430:03:46

-Lady Donohue! Lady Donohue!

-Is he here yet?

0:03:460:03:49

The great Donohue's not with me,

0:03:490:03:51

he has been wounded in battle.

0:03:510:03:53

Nothing severe, he's just sprained his ankle,

0:03:530:03:56

but they need you in the camp to attend to the other warriors too.

0:03:560:04:00

Of course. Let me get my bag of herbs and remedies.

0:04:000:04:03

Let's go. Oh! Oh, wait.

0:04:050:04:08

Old Calhoun has decided to give Donahue

0:04:080:04:10

the special warrior's armlet today.

0:04:100:04:12

He said he'd earned it and it was time.

0:04:120:04:15

That is a great honour.

0:04:150:04:16

-Everyone will see that Donohue is very powerful.

-Yes.

0:04:160:04:20

And I promised Old Calhoun

0:04:200:04:21

that I would pick up the armlet before he leaves for the island,

0:04:210:04:25

but I can't be in two places at once.

0:04:250:04:27

'Of course, Charlotte knew exactly how she could help Lady Donahue.'

0:04:270:04:33

Excuse me, I could get the armlet for you.

0:04:330:04:36

Oh, thank you.

0:04:360:04:38

That is very kind of you,

0:04:380:04:40

but the warrior's armlet is extremely valuable.

0:04:400:04:43

-Anyone who has it must be able to keep it safe.

-I promise I will.

-Hm.

0:04:430:04:47

I think I can trust you.

0:04:490:04:51

You'll find Old Calhoun's hut just in the woods beyond the village.

0:04:520:04:56

Bring the armlet back straightaway.

0:04:560:04:59

-Don't worry, I will.

-Take care.

0:04:590:05:02

And so off Charlotte went through the village and into the woods

0:05:020:05:06

to the old warrior Calhoun's hut

0:05:060:05:08

to complete what seemed to be a very simple task.

0:05:080:05:12

Excuse me, I'm sorry to bother you,

0:05:120:05:14

-but I'm here to pick up the warrior's armlet for Lady Donohue.

-Who?

0:05:140:05:19

Lady Donohue - the wife of the great warrior Donohue.

0:05:190:05:23

He's been wounded in battle and she had to rush to help him.

0:05:230:05:26

Now...

0:05:320:05:34

let me see. Where did I put it?

0:05:340:05:37

Ah! There it is!

0:05:370:05:39

-You found it!

-Yes! I've been looking for this bucket for ages.

0:05:390:05:43

-What about the armlet?

-What armlet?

0:05:430:05:46

The warrior's armlet for Donohue.

0:05:460:05:49

Oh, yes, of course.

0:05:490:05:50

It's around here somewhere. Now, let me see.

0:05:500:05:54

'Old Calhoun began to search his cluttered hut,

0:05:540:05:57

'lifting this, looking under that.

0:05:570:06:00

'This was going to take a while.'

0:06:000:06:03

-When did you last have it?

-What?

0:06:030:06:05

The armlet.

0:06:050:06:06

Oh, um, about a couple of days ago.

0:06:060:06:09

It was in a wooden box.

0:06:090:06:10

-Like that one over there?

-What?

0:06:120:06:14

Oh, yes! Oh, thank you!

0:06:140:06:17

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:06:170:06:18

Ah! Here you are.

0:06:180:06:20

Thank you. I'll make sure Donohue gets it.

0:06:210:06:25

-Goodbye.

-Goodbye.

0:06:250:06:27

The box weighed heavily in Charlotte's arms

0:06:290:06:31

as she made her way back through the woods.

0:06:310:06:34

Curious to know what she was carrying, Charlotte lifted the lid.

0:06:340:06:39

The box was full of jewellery and fine stones,

0:06:390:06:42

but nothing that looked like an armlet for a warrior.

0:06:420:06:45

Charlotte turned on her heels.

0:06:460:06:48

Excuse me, I'm sorry to bother you again,

0:06:520:06:55

but I just checked and the armlet isn't in the box.

0:06:550:06:58

Of course it isn't there.

0:06:580:07:00

You see, this was just a test.

0:07:000:07:02

'Now Charlotte was confused.'

0:07:020:07:05

-What do you mean?

-The armlet is a sign of a great warrior.

0:07:050:07:08

-Like a crown for a king?

-Exactly like a crown for a king.

0:07:080:07:12

So you understand why I couldn't just hand it over

0:07:120:07:15

to any young lady who came along. Oh, but don't worry,

0:07:150:07:19

you've proved you're kind-hearted by helping Lady Donohue.

0:07:190:07:23

Now I know you're honest, I can trust you with the armlet.

0:07:230:07:26

Thank you.

0:07:260:07:27

'Now she was trusted, Charlotte thought getting the armlet

0:07:270:07:31

'would be as easy as falling off a log,

0:07:310:07:33

'but, of course, it was never going to be as easy as that.'

0:07:330:07:37

It's far too valuable to keep around here.

0:07:370:07:40

You'll find it far away in the island in the loch,

0:07:400:07:43

buried in the box beside a tree.

0:07:430:07:46

You'll know it when you see it.

0:07:460:07:48

It wasn't even teatime and already it had got so complicated.

0:07:480:07:53

Charlotte had offered to collect the armlet for Lady Donohue.

0:07:530:07:57

She had helped Old Calhoun find the wooden box.

0:07:570:08:01

And she returned it the moment she realised

0:08:010:08:04

she had a box full of jewels instead.

0:08:040:08:06

But the armlet was still miles away.

0:08:060:08:09

She couldn't go back to Lady Donohue without the armlet, could she?

0:08:090:08:13

There was nothing else for it but to get her skates on

0:08:140:08:17

to the island in the loch to find the warrior's armlet.

0:08:170:08:21

So off went Charlotte in her old battered boots.

0:08:260:08:31

She scrambled across the ancient highlands until...

0:08:310:08:35

when she was almost out of breath...

0:08:350:08:38

the path ran out.

0:08:380:08:40

There was only one way to get to the other side.

0:08:440:08:48

Charlotte took a deep breath.

0:08:480:08:52

Safely across and there she was,

0:09:140:09:18

on the mysterious island in the loch.

0:09:180:09:21

But there was no time to admire the view.

0:09:250:09:28

Charlotte had to get that armlet.

0:09:280:09:31

There, a solitary windblown tree

0:09:310:09:35

was encircled by a ring of standing stones.

0:09:350:09:38

That must have been what Old Calhoun had meant.

0:09:380:09:42

She set about clearing the earth near the base of the tree

0:09:420:09:45

and soon found another box,

0:09:450:09:48

just like the last one.

0:09:480:09:50

Ah, yes.

0:09:500:09:52

But the box was locked.

0:09:520:09:54

Now what?

0:09:540:09:55

Well done.

0:09:570:09:58

'Old Calhoun. Was she dreaming?'

0:09:580:10:00

You have shown me that you are strong,

0:10:000:10:03

as well as brave and kind.

0:10:030:10:05

Now, you have to answer one last question

0:10:050:10:08

and you get the key to the armlet's box.

0:10:080:10:11

I'm ready. HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:10:110:10:14

What is the final quality you must have

0:10:150:10:18

if you are to be trusted with the warrior's armlet?

0:10:180:10:22

'The armlet can only be given

0:10:220:10:24

'to someone who is kind, honest,

0:10:240:10:28

'strong and, and...

0:10:280:10:31

'She thought about all the things

0:10:310:10:33

'she carried in her bag for her adventures -

0:10:330:10:36

'her binoculars...

0:10:360:10:37

'..her water flask...

0:10:390:10:41

'..her telescope -

0:10:430:10:45

'and that was when the answer came to her, crystal clear.'

0:10:460:10:51

I need to be an explorer,

0:10:510:10:52

to always be curious, and learn and discover new things.

0:10:520:10:56

Ha-ha-ha-ha! Congratulations, my dear.

0:10:560:10:59

That is the correct answer.

0:10:590:11:01

And what an armlet it was -

0:11:030:11:06

so beautifully crafted, but smooth and cold to the touch,

0:11:060:11:10

a true symbol of strength and beauty.

0:11:100:11:13

Now, goodbye.

0:11:130:11:16

I hope to see you again someday soon.

0:11:160:11:18

-Goodbye.

-Goodbye, Charlotte.

0:11:180:11:21

Back came Charlotte in her old battered boots...

0:11:240:11:28

..over the river and down the mountainside.

0:11:300:11:33

She had to be quick to get there in time

0:11:360:11:39

for the return of Donohue, the great warrior.

0:11:390:11:42

I've got it!

0:11:450:11:47

Oh, wonderful! Thank you!

0:11:470:11:49

-I hope it wasn't too much trouble.

-Not at all.

0:11:490:11:52

Old Calhoun was very helpful.

0:11:520:11:54

-Yes, he is a very special man.

-Yes, he is.

0:11:540:11:58

Oh, Donohue, my love, I am honoured to tell you

0:11:580:12:01

that Old Calhoun has decided it's time for you to have...

0:12:010:12:04

the warrior's armlet.

0:12:040:12:06

It's beautiful, but...

0:12:080:12:11

-BOTH:

-You should put it on.

0:12:110:12:13

It looks perfect on you, my love.

0:12:190:12:22

Now, let's all celebrate.

0:12:220:12:24

Yes, let's.

0:12:240:12:26

And that was that, the whole kit and caboodle.

0:12:290:12:32

-Charlotte And The Adventure Of The Warrior's Armlet.

-Wow!

0:12:320:12:36

-Quite a story.

-Yes!

0:12:360:12:38

So you're only allowed to pass the armlet onto someone

0:12:380:12:41

who is kind, strong and clever.

0:12:410:12:44

Indeed.

0:12:440:12:45

And you managed to show that you had all three qualities,

0:12:450:12:48

and got the beautiful armlet, too.

0:12:480:12:51

My goodness, time does fly when you're having fun. Come on.

0:12:520:12:56

Your mum will be here in a minute.

0:12:570:13:00

Your coat.

0:13:000:13:01

Now how did that get there?

0:13:130:13:16

Home time now, Charlotte.

0:13:180:13:20

Thanks, Great Aunt Lizzie!

0:13:280:13:30

Cheery-bye, Charlotte!

0:13:300:13:32

Great Aunt Lizzie tells the story of Charlotte and the Adventure of the Warrior's Armlet. A great Celtic warrior is to be presented a rare treasure but fetching it is challenging. Charlotte goes on an epic quest to prove herself worthy of carrying the armlet.
