Beautiful beautiful show, check the narration.

This is such a beautifully made show. The scenes flying through the meadow and tree trunk are just gorgeous. The music also is lovely.

We couldn’t show the original version in the UK as the scripting was not culturally appropriate, so Peter let us rescript and record new voice tracks to address this and bring it more in line with the needs of UK schools (ask him and you can use these too!). We have made one that is appropriate for ages 4-7yr, and have scripted another to bring it up to 8-12yr, to be recorded soon.
