-We're waiting for Kizzy and Kai

-up at Llechwedd.

0:01:300:01:34

-I've just found out that we're going

-on a trip in that lorry.

0:01:340:01:39

-Every time I've been here I've seen

0:01:400:01:44

-It's been underground.

0:01:450:01:47

-Kizzy and Kai are over there.

0:01:480:01:51

-Hello, kids. Are you alright?

0:01:510:01:53

-How are you?

0:01:530:01:54

-We feel happy!

0:01:550:01:57

-Very good. We do too.

0:01:570:01:59

-First of all,

-high five from everyone?

0:02:010:02:03

-This is Robin.

-He's taking us on the lorry.

0:02:030:02:06

-We're going to see where people used

-to work in Llechwedd quarry.

0:02:060:02:11

-The first thing Kizzy and Kai see

-is the tons of slate that's here.

0:02:130:02:19

-Those stones you can see everywhere

-are slates.

0:02:190:02:25

-There are thousands of slates

-around Blaenau.

0:02:260:02:28

-Quarrying slate used to be what

-people did in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

0:02:280:02:33

-The miners had to walk up

-to the quarry.

0:02:360:02:41

-I want to be a fireman.

0:02:420:02:44

-If you lived 200 years ago, you'd be

-about to start work at the quarry.

0:02:460:02:51

-Children started working

-at eight years old.

0:02:520:02:55

-I have to work in the quarry.

0:02:560:02:59

-What village is that over there?

-Do you know?

0:03:030:03:06

-Blaenau Ffestiniog.

0:03:060:03:08

-Blaenau Ffestiniog.

-

-You're from Blaenau, aren't you?

0:03:080:03:10

-Blaenau used to be the largest town

-in all of North Wales.

0:03:100:03:15

-I can see the field down by there.

0:03:170:03:20

-Oh, yeah.

0:03:200:03:21

-Underneath the stairs,

-there's a goal at that end.

0:03:220:03:26

-There's a goal at that end

-for everybody else.

0:03:270:03:31

-I think it's under the stairs.

0:03:310:03:33

-That's where my dad trains.

0:03:340:03:36

-From the top of the quarry, you can

-see the mountains and the sea.

0:03:390:03:42

-Porthmadog is in that direction.

0:03:430:03:44

-In the opposite direction

-is Wales' highest mountain, Snowdon.

0:03:450:03:48

-Kizzy has had ideas for the song.

0:03:520:03:55

-# Yes, Blaenau Ffestiniog #

0:03:550:03:59

-Kai is working on the dance moves.

0:04:010:04:04

-They're easy.

0:04:050:04:06

-# Learning about the slates

0:04:100:04:13

-# Let's go for a stroll

-up the mountain

0:04:130:04:15

-Before long, it's time

-to head back down the mountain.

0:04:160:04:20

-There are a lot of bands

-in the Blaenau area.

0:04:250:04:29

-# Black coffee, black coffee,

-bring me a black coffee

0:04:320:04:35

-# Black coffee, black coffee,

-I want a black coffee #

0:04:350:04:39

-Our headteacher, Mr Roberts,

-is also a musician.

0:04:390:04:42

-He plays the drums.

0:04:430:04:44

-We're meeting Mr Roberts

-in the cinema.

0:04:450:04:49

0:04:490:04:51

0:04:540:04:55

-Hello, Kizzy.

0:04:560:04:57

-I hear you're a good drummer.

0:04:570:04:59

-As it happens, we're looking for a

-drummer so we can jam together.

0:04:590:05:04

-Can you join us?

0:05:040:05:04

-Can you join us?

-

-Yes, it sounds great.

0:05:040:05:06

-Why don't we have a jam, kids?

0:05:060:05:08

-Yes.

0:05:080:05:10

-You can spread jam on a sandwich.

0:05:110:05:14

-Jam is also the word

-for playing music.

0:06:020:06:05

-Kizzy and Kai

-want to learn more about the slate.

0:06:060:06:09

-So, we've come back

-to the Llechwedd quarry.

0:06:100:06:14

-First things first,

-we need to practice our moves.

0:06:140:06:18

-# Dancing free

0:06:210:06:23

-# Number two, locked door

0:06:250:06:26

-# Locked door

0:06:300:06:31

-# Number three, do the flea

0:06:340:06:35

-# Do the flea

0:06:390:06:40

-# Number four, do the bird

0:06:420:06:45

-# Do the bird

0:06:470:06:49

-# Number five, do the fall

0:06:510:06:53

-# Do the fall

0:06:560:06:57

-Number five is my favourite move.

0:06:570:07:00

-Robin has come back

-to tell us more...

0:07:020:07:05

-..about what used

-to happen at the quarry.

0:07:050:07:10

-The miners would dig for slate.

0:07:100:07:13

-These would be used

-for roofing slates...

0:07:150:07:17

-..for people all over the world.

0:07:180:07:21

-There are a lot of slates

-in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

0:07:220:07:25

-Slates are rocks that

-come from underground.

0:07:260:07:31

-People get the slates

-from underground.

0:07:320:07:37

-I wouldn't like to go underground.

0:07:380:07:40

-Children had to work hard mining

-and splitting slates.

0:07:420:07:50

-I'm glad I live in modern times.

0:08:030:08:05

-I want to be a fireman

-when I grow up.

0:08:060:08:09

-Fireman Sam is a good man.

0:08:090:08:11

-He helps people.

-That's why I want to be a fireman.

0:08:110:08:14

-Slate is very, very old.

0:08:160:08:17

-They're 500 million years old.

0:08:180:08:21

-Slates are as old as dinosaurs.

0:08:220:08:24

-What do you think

-I have behind this?

0:08:260:08:28

-There's gold in slates.

0:08:310:08:33

-It isn't real gold.

0:08:330:08:35

-I like stuff that sparkles.

0:08:350:08:37

-No, it's not real gold.

0:08:400:08:42

-But slates were valuable.

0:08:420:08:44

-The quarry bosses were very wealthy.

0:08:440:08:46

-The miners were poor.

0:08:470:08:49

-They didn't get much pay

-for their hard work.

0:08:500:08:52

-They couldn't afford

-nutritious food.

0:08:530:08:55

-They frequently only had bread

-for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

0:08:570:09:01

-The miners used to have

-cheese and jam sandwiches.

0:09:060:09:11

-This was called

-a quarry breakfast or quarry supper.

0:09:110:09:16

-I like a jam and cheese sandwich.

0:09:170:09:20

-# Thank you friends,

-thanks very much

0:09:250:09:29

-# For the warm welcome that we had

0:09:290:09:33

-# There's nothing like new friends,

-seeing each other now and then

0:09:330:09:41

-# But when we are no longer together

0:09:410:09:45

-# Remember us with song and dance #

0:09:450:09:50

-TiPiNi has been in Blaenau

-for two days.

0:09:550:09:58

-Tomorrow, Kizzy, Kai...

0:09:580:10:00

-..and the group will perform

-Blaenau's song for the first time.

0:10:000:10:04

-An audience of their friends

-will come to enjoy it.

0:10:050:10:08

-The song is about the slates, quarry

-and the music in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

0:10:090:10:14

-Right, kids, I think it's time

-for us to practice.

0:10:190:10:22

-What do you think?

0:10:220:10:23

-Off we go.

0:10:230:10:26

0:10:340:10:38

-# We share our world with slates

0:10:390:10:42

-Time for the

-last-minute preparations.

0:10:490:10:52

-It's time to ensure

-the glow sticks glow...

0:10:520:10:55

-..and make sure the TiPi

-is pretty and colourful.

0:10:570:11:00

-Here comes the group to TiPiNi.

-They're full of excitement and fun.

0:11:040:11:08

-They're ready to enjoy.

0:11:080:11:10

-A warm welcome

-to everyone to TiPiNi.

0:11:100:11:13
