'The shipping forecast with Louise Lear.

0:00:130:00:17

'Thank you, Annie. This is the shipping forecast issued by the Met office

0:00:170:00:20

'on behalf of the Maritime Coastguard Agency.

0:00:200:00:23

'The general synopsis...'

0:00:230:00:25

CLOCK TICKING

0:00:250:00:31

He seems fine in himself.

0:00:310:00:33

Maybe he just enjoys it out there.

0:00:330:00:35

Every question gets the same answer.

0:00:380:00:40

Preparation.

0:00:400:00:43

Well, talk to your father.

0:00:430:00:45

He started this nonsense.

0:00:450:00:47

He could have told him anything. You know how confused he gets.

0:00:480:00:52

-It's between the two of

-them.

0:00:520:00:54

Griff'll tell us...

0:00:540:00:55

when he wants to.

0:00:550:00:57

SHE SIGHS

0:00:570:00:59

THUNDER AND RAIN

0:00:590:01:02

THUNDER

0:01:070:01:09

THUNDER

0:01:110:01:12

# Life is for living I've been doing it wrong

0:01:180:01:22

# For too long, I've been

0:01:220:01:25

# Doing it wrong. #

0:01:250:01:27

No, no. Wait.

0:01:380:01:39

-She says she sees both femininity and masculinity in me.

-Does she?

0:01:390:01:44

Is she really looking that closely?

0:01:440:01:46

Maybe not.

0:01:460:01:47

But I think she totally gets me.

0:01:480:01:51

-So she thinks you're a tiny bit girly and...a tiny bit weird.

-Oi!

0:01:510:01:56

Listen here, Tentboy, you win weirdo of the week every time.

0:01:560:01:59

I mean, you can't exactly invite a girl back to your canvas bungalow, now, can you?

0:01:590:02:03

Canvas bungalow?

0:02:030:02:05

And even if you did, you wouldn't know what to do.

0:02:050:02:08

HE GRUNTS

0:02:140:02:16

-Are you sure you're OK, Daddy?

-Yep.

0:02:160:02:20

-We're not angry, just concerned about this sleeping out thing.

-Oh.

0:02:210:02:25

It's just you gave him the tent. And that letter.

0:02:280:02:31

It's not that we're angry, Baz.

0:02:310:02:34

Daddy, do you understand why we are concerned?

0:02:340:02:37

HE GRUNTS

0:02:370:02:39

He was fine yesterday.

0:02:390:02:42

He was here? Yesterday?

0:02:420:02:43

Quite chipper, actually.

0:02:430:02:45

-This is exactly what we're talking about.

-School was doing his head in.

0:02:450:02:49

Well, that's it, it's bullying.

0:02:490:02:51

He doesn't cope well with mixed social classes.

0:02:510:02:54

Daddy!

0:02:570:02:59

Hey, Joanna.

0:03:080:03:09

Ladies, so, are we going to be there tonight?

0:03:090:03:13

Well, what are you thinking?

0:03:160:03:18

Are you the one with the tent?

0:03:200:03:21

Sorry?

0:03:220:03:24

-You are, aren't you?

-I suppose so, yeah.

0:03:240:03:28

So you are Tentboy? What are you doing with your life?

0:03:280:03:32

Are you some kind of gypo? Is that it?

0:03:320:03:34

How do you shower and stuff?

0:03:340:03:36

It's straightforward. I just...

0:03:360:03:39

What a pair of weirdos. Seriously, Tentboy. Why?

0:03:390:03:45

It's just...

0:03:450:03:47

preparation.

0:03:470:03:49

Preparation?

0:03:490:03:50

-It's your letter that started this nonsense.

-Come on, Baz.

0:04:080:04:12

What the hell is going on?

0:04:120:04:14

Did you know in the 18th century,

0:04:140:04:16

you could take out insurance against going to hell?

0:04:160:04:19

Do you have insurance, Bruce?

0:04:200:04:22

I'm sorry, but you're pushing me right over the edge.

0:04:250:04:28

Imogen.

0:04:280:04:30

DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES

0:04:300:04:31

HE SIGHS

0:04:310:04:33

You haven't been near an edge in your life.

0:04:330:04:35

# Hello, sunshine

0:04:360:04:42

# Come in to my life

0:04:420:04:47

# Hello, sunshine

0:04:490:04:54

# Come in to my life

0:04:540:04:59

# In honesty

0:05:030:05:05

# It's been a while

0:05:050:05:09

# Since we had reason left to smile

0:05:090:05:15

# Hello, sunshine

0:05:150:05:20

# Come into my life. #

0:05:200:05:25

Griff.

0:05:310:05:32

-Yes, mother?

-It's getting seriously late.

0:05:340:05:37

Good night, mother.

0:05:390:05:41

-There's a film on and your father...

-Good night, mother.

0:05:430:05:47

Good night.

0:05:470:05:48

THE WIND WHISTLES

0:05:530:05:59

Don't be late.

0:06:010:06:03

DOOR SLAMS SHUT

0:06:070:06:08

I just thought we could go to a festival or something,

0:06:140:06:17

-just me and her.

-Well, you can. You can borrow the tent.

0:06:170:06:20

She's not coming near me when she thinks I'm part of your Scout pack.

0:06:200:06:23

I think it's 'troop', Scout Troop.

0:06:230:06:25

You'll be away on one of your mum's retreats and I'll be stuck here.

0:06:250:06:29

-Well, do something.

-Like what?

-Go somewhere, live dangerously.

0:06:290:06:34

My life must be really pathetic if I'm taking advice from a homeless boy and his tent.

0:06:340:06:39

Look, the school is nearly done and we've got the whole summer

0:06:390:06:42

but we need to be prepared.

0:06:420:06:45

Now, come on, time me.

0:06:450:06:46

Look, could be any number of things.

0:06:540:06:57

Maybe he's just had enough of sleeping outside.

0:06:580:07:01

-Darling, stop worrying. He's home.

-I knew he'd come back but...

0:07:010:07:05

You're right.

0:07:070:07:09

You're right. God.

0:07:090:07:11

He is normal.

0:07:110:07:13

-'The shipping forecast with Liam Dutton.

-Thank you, Ted.

0:07:200:07:24

'This is the shipping forecast issued by the Met Office on behalf

0:07:240:07:27

'of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. There are warnings of gales.

0:07:270:07:32

'The general synopsis: at midnight...'

0:07:320:07:34

'Mother and father.

0:07:370:07:39

-'You always told me that when I was 16 I could decide on what holiday suited me best.'

-Bruce!

0:07:390:07:45

'As much as I've enjoyed our usual retreats,

0:07:450:07:47

'I thought this year I would look for a bit more adventure.

0:07:470:07:51

'As you've probably guessed, I have been preparing this for a while.

0:07:510:07:54

'I have my tent and I have lots of supplies, so don't worry.

0:07:540:07:58

'I'm not too sure how long I'll be away for

0:07:580:08:00

'but I will be in regular contact.

0:08:000:08:03

'Grandpa just wanted me to have a bit more excitement in my life,

0:08:030:08:06

'like he used to have when he was my age.

0:08:060:08:08

'So try not to worry

0:08:080:08:10

'and let me have this one exciting time over a summer holiday.

0:08:100:08:13

'And don't worry about me being on my own. I have good company.

0:08:150:08:19

'A very...experienced traveller.

0:08:190:08:22

'Hope you're not too disappointed in us both.

0:08:220:08:24

'I'll send you postcards of our adventures.

0:08:240:08:27

'Love, Griffey.'
