Right. Team A, over here, please.
Team B this side. Who's on Team B?
OK, listen up, please, guys. Girls, please?
Today is all about team-building.
Learning how to work together out here in the beautiful countryside.
We've got all the little kids on our team, like Harry!
-Tracy will take care of him.
-Yeah, I'll look after him.
-But he's going to slow us down.
-We split you into groups
only because it's easier to keep an eye on you.
It's not a competition.
Lucky for you, because if it was, you'd lose.
-Er, you would!
-Are you ready?
-Oi! I was on level nine.
-Hey, no mobile phones today.
Just you versus nature. In fact, no gadgets at all. Give them up.
There's no signal anyway.
-Come on, quickly, please.
-Do I have to?
-What do you think?
Come on. Thank you very much. Thank you, thank you.
Right, teams, I want you to take your time.
We don't want anyone getting hurt.
And especially what is important is that you work together! Yay!
OTHERS CHEER THEM ON
Hey, you can't do that. That's cheating.
Come on. Let's go. Chop-chop! As a team.
Toby, hurry up!
-Let's go, let's go.
Carmen, what are you doing? Just leave Tee.
Get in. Just get in.
We won! We won!
I don't think so.
Excuse me, Elektra. No man gets left behind.
-Not in my team.
-Well done, everybody.
And thankfully nobody got hurt.
Oh, oh, oh!
Of course I'm not OK!
-Get something cold on it...
Looks like a day at the campsite for you.
At least you can cook the sausages.
Tracy can take over.
She is the only other responsible adult.
Johnny, you just pushed them in the poo.
Toby! What's that...? Listen, everybody.
Team B has a new leader. Tracy.
-Is that OK?
Are you joking? Let me do it.
No. It needs to be a grown-up.
But she's totally rubbish.
Team B, my name is Tracy and I shall be your leader for today.
Right, time for the main event of the day. It's the big 5K challenge.
Wait a minute. Is that K as in...
Yes, K as in kilometres.
-Each team has their own route.
You've got to follow some waymarks,
answer some simple questions about the countryside.
Look at you. Can't you handle it?
-We'll beat you back in. That's for sure.
Enough, enough. You two, go and wash. Now.
It's supposed to be really good for your complexion.
Check and make sure you've got everything, guys.
OK, Team B. Gather round.
WHISTLE I'm trying to tell you something.
Girls! Attention, please. Thank you.
Right, look at the map. Can you see it?
The map has waymarks marked all round it.
That's where each of your questions about the countryside are. OK?
To make it even easier, I have given you
a whole list of instructions.
-If you follow those, you can't go wrong.
-That's a pleasure. Here, hold that.
-Are you looking forward to it?
-Jeff's really excited about today.
-He might see someone special in the woods.
Can some of us go ahead cos Harry will slow us down?
It's a team-building exercise.
-Clue's kind of in the title.
-Yeah, but how will we win like that?
MIKE: How many times, huh?
It's not about winning.
Whatever. Can I look at where you're supposed to be leading us?
Sure. Just make sure you give it back. Do you want the compass too?
Might as well.
Let's go see Mike.
-Are we going to win this or what?
-Of course we are.
I've got a plan. Just trust me. When the time comes, back me up, OK?
Right, are you ready? Have you got your grub?
-Have you got your water?
-Have you got your maps?
Right, let's move it out.
Company, ho! Come on.
See you later, losers.
THEY SHOUT AT EACH OTHER
Come on, this is ridiculous. I'm going on.
Oi, stay where I can see you.
It says follow the path to rat gate.
Ah! A day in the country. What's not to like?
No TV. No piano. No books.
No, I mean...
there's loads to like.
There aren't any people.
-That's the point.
-What is that on my shoe?
That is dung, Liam.
Sheep poo most likely.
-The first waymarker should be around here.
There it is.
-Go on then, read it.
-"Name three breeds of cattle."
-Come on, Liam? Easy.
-Oi, no need to be rude!
-How are we supposed to know this?
-By taking an interest in the countryside.
-You know, the things you eat.
-Actually, is there a takeaway around here?
You sure about this?
Are you going to let Lily win after she pushed you in the cowpat?
-What about Johnny rubbing your face in it? Do you want to lose?
-Right. Now all we have to do is look for...
There's one question about three sorts of cow or something.
-OK. We'll sort it out on the way.
Let me have a look.
That's weird. It says to go this way.
Doesn't look like a path.
Tracy's team leader, how about we listen to her?
Right, let's go this way, then.
-What does the compass say? What direction?
-What's Beaker like at home?
-A big kid half the time.
Cam's like, "I'm not living in this rubbish tip."
-You don't get bored on your own?
That's why I come in with Tracy sometimes. It's why I came on this.
-Won't you get bored?
When you move out, live on your own.
-Can you imagine living out here?
-You have to walk ten miles for a bag of crisps.
-With no pavement.
How do people live like this?
-I don't know.
-Talking to the trees.
What would you do for fun?
There must be another waymark round here somewhere.
Face it, Tracy. You've got us lost.
Harry, we're lost.
Are you tired? Want to go back?
-You're right. We should turn back.
-You and Harry?
-No, we'll all stick together.
-No, give me the map.
-I can find a way so the rest of us can go on.
You go back.
-We carry on and win. What's wrong with that?
-Who cares about winning?
Yeah. Can't we all just stick together?
It's safer and I'm responsible for everyone.
Safer? What do you think's going to happen?
We can easily go on, Tracy.
Yeah, we're not little kids.
I've just found the answer to the question - three types of cow.
Stubborn cow, stupid cow and bossy cow.
If that's what you all want, just do it. See how far you get.
Don't blame me when things go wrong.
What are you waiting for? Me to hold your hand? Go on, go.
Come on, hurry up.
Wait. Wait for me.
-Here you go.
-"Name three varieties of apples."
Go on, then.
I've got nine. Granny Smith, pink lady...
-So you're really looking forward to being on your own?
I thought it would be great to be fostered,
-but it's harder than I thought.
-Well, moving out's not the same.
When you live on your own, you choose the people you want to meet.
You're not stuck with whoever you happen to live with.
Girls, any chance of you joining in?
Where the heck are the boys?
-No shops, takeaways.
Yeah, you'd be like, "Hey, want to come and see some cows tonight?"
Come and watch a moo-vie!
-Did you hear that?
-What was it?
-I don't know. A fox?
-A wild boar?
-You don't get those around here, do you?
-I don't know. Let's run.
No! That's what makes things attack.
You've just got to front it straight on.
It was probably just a branch falling out of a tree or something.
-It's in there!
Do we still have to front it out?
See? You don't get this aggravation in the city.
-What's the matter, mate?
-He's not well, is he?
-Look, there's a collar.
His name's Buster and there's a phone number.
Where are my sausages?
This is ridiculous.
How about I go see where they've got to?
Do you want me to pull with you and map read?
No. I'll be quicker on my own.
-Here you go. Nobody moves. Got it?
I'm going to go and take some more pictures.
And then there was two.
She didn't know what to say.
It's right what you said. It's not like we're kids.
There's a wicked short-cut if we take the bridge.
It cuts off miles. We'll cane them!
I can't wait to see Lily's face when they get back.
We'll just be sitting there.
Sit. Buster, sit. There's a good lad.
-It's making a funny noise.
-You have to put money in.
-Like pay as you go?
Jeff needs a rest.
Let's stop here for a minute, then.
Let's put Jeff in my bag for a bit. Make it easier for you to walk.
Don't worry about it, Tracy.
I should never have let them go.
You didn't really have a choice.
It should have been them with no choice.
They will be OK.
-See you later, Buster.
-We was just...
Don't talk. Walk.
So where's this bridge, then?
Should be around...
Look, the bridge.
-We'll just get rid of the rope.
Elektra, don't. It doesn't look safe. Come back.
See, told you it was fine.
Carmen, come on.
Come on, just keep going.
You'll be fine.
What was that?
-What was what?
-It sounded like a scream.
Help me! Help!
-Pull yourself up.
-Please help me!
Pull yourself up.
Please help me!
-Not now, Harry.
Right. We are supposed to be a team
and so far all we've had is Team Gus.
Let's get it together, OK?
-She's gone to take some photos.
Don't go running off like that, please.
You two, out in front of me where I can see you.
Chill out, Mike. It's not a competition, remember.
Please help me! Help!
I can't help you, I'm stuck.
Help me, please.
Please help me. Help!
-Keep still, there's only a nail holding you up.
Help me, please. Please help me.
Help me, please! Please help me!
Don't walk on it, it's too dangerous.
-I'm coming, Carmen. Just one minute more.
Toby, go and get the rope.
-Carmen, just hold on, I promise I'll get you out of there.
It's going to be fine, OK? Toby, can you tie a loop?
-Focus, Toby. A loop. Just keep still.
-It's going to be OK.
Right, Toby, Tee, Frank, grab the rope and wrap it round your arms.
Try and swing your leg through, OK?
When I say now, everybody pulls.
Tracy, the nail!
-I can't do it.
-I can't. Tracy, the nail.
Carmen, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.
-He was behind us back there.
Jeff must have fallen out.
You two stay with Carmen in case he comes back.
-Toby, we'll go back the way we came.
-What am I supposed to do?
You've got the map. See if you can come back round this side.
If we don't see him along the path, we'll come back here.
Nobody moves from here, OK? Come on.
Well done, Gus.
Why don't we give another member of the team a chance to read it out?
-"Name three kinds of dung."
-Don't be ridiculous.
-"Name three kinds of chicken."
Harry, where are you?
Toby, can you find him?
I can't see him anywhere.
-He's not down there.
-He's not down there.
What do we do?
Let's go back to the first marker. He might be waiting for us there.
I'm not sure, Jeff. I think he's friendly.
That's an adder. They're poisonous.
-Just come to me. Don't be scared.
-She's saving Carmen.
-Why aren't you there?
Because I'm saving you. Just come to me. Don't be scared.
But you hate us. We slow you down.
Just come away from the snake, Harry, please.
Please save Jeff.
Elektra saved me and Jeff from a snake.
-I'm so sorry. You all right?
-Shall we go back?
-You saw a snake?
-Yeah, it was an adder.
ELEKTRA: Mm-hm. Massive.
-None of them have got any people in them.
-Thought you would beat us back!
Well done, guys. Good day?
-Don't tell me.
You go get washed up, then tell us all over tea?
Mm, they look nice.
Who'd like one? You want that? Can you pass me an empty one?
Come on, Carmen, tell us about your story.
You know when we left you?
We'd just come across this bridge
and I think I was just a bit too concentrated on trying to win.
Anyway, Elektra went across the bridge and it was absolutely fine.
But when I went...
# And what a time it was, it was
# A time of innocence
# A time of confidences
# Long ago it must be
# I have a photograph
# Preserve your memories
# They're all that's left you. #
What I don't understand is how you got lost in the first place?
I don't know. The directions didn't make any sense.
They were easy. At the first waymark, turn left.
No, no. You wrote "right". We turned right.
Somebody's changed this.
No, I definitely wrote L for left.
-Did one of you sabotage this deliberately?
Elektra did it.
She wanted you to get lost and turn back with Harry.
That's why I nearly died!
Aren't you going to say something?
-I didn't want any of that to happen.
-You still caused it.
-You wanted to win too, and Toby.
-That's no excuse, Elektra.
You put us into two teams. What did you expect?
And just because she led, didn't mean you had to follow.
NOISE OF OTHERS PLAYING OUTSIDE
You're on my team.
No-one gets left behind. Come on.
