[31] But none of you will know my friend over here whose name is Donald.
(F72PS002) [32] Hello.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [33] Hello Donald.
(F72PS000) [34] Wh who I think is a friend of Noddy's.
[35] At any rate, he is got very big ears, and I'll tell you why.
[36] Because he goes around the country with his tape recorder finding out what's going on.
[37] And he's very interested in collecting would you believe not just stories
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [38] Shells.
(F72PS000) [39] Not shells, but words. ...
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [40] Oh.
(F72PS000) [41] And he's collecting lots of words to put into a very large book.
[42] But he's not a spy.
[43] He's a gatherer and a sharer of words.
[44] Just as you might be a gatherer and sharer of ... stories.
[45] Are you, any of you, gatherers of stories?
[46] Some of you are.
[47] Well I've got some stories that I'd like to share with you but ... there's a condition.
[48] If I tell you a story you'd have to agree to tell it to somebody else.
[49] Do you think you could do that?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [50] Yes.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [51] No I couldn't.
(F72PS000) [52] You couldn't?
[53] Well will you try and listen to these stories and see if you think there's one that you like that you might like to share?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [54] Mm.
(F72PS000) [55] Alright.
[56] Now the first story that I've been asked to tell specially comes not from this country ... we'll just let our lads here get dressed because you, you knew that the story was gonna come from a very hot country did you?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [57] No.
(F72PS000) [58] You took your clothes off for it.
[59] Well the story that I have to tell you to begin with ... comes all the way from a very hot and very large continent.
[60] ... Does anybody know any large continents where it's a very very hot place? ...
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [61] Oh the centre line of the earth.
(F72PS000) [62] What's that called, the centre line of the earth?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [63] Mm
(F72PS000) [64] D'you know?
[65] ... I can't remember [...]
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [66] The equator.
(F72PS000) [67] The equator.
[68] Well done.
[69] Is that the word you were thinking of?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [70] Yeah.
(F72PS000) [71] Great, you took the word out of her brain.
[72] Put it back later.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [laugh]
(F72PS000) [73] A hot country which has the equator running through it.
[74] The country I'm thinking of is ... Africa.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [75] Oh that place.
[76] Right.
[77] Would you like to hear a story from Africa?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [78] Yeah.
(F72PS000) [79] Alright.
[80] Some of you may know this story.
[81] I wonder if you do?
[82] It's the story all about a man who had two very nice daughters.
[83] [wolf whistle] An excellent choice.
[84] The man's name was Mufaro .
[85] And he had two daughters, and their names ... were Manyara and Nyasha .
[86] Mufaro was a very proud father.
[87] Both his daughters were very beautiful and he also thought they were very wise.
[88] But Manyara, when she was alone with her sister Nyasha, was not always very nice to her.
[89] She bullied her.
[90] One day she said, I'll become the queen and then you'll have to do everything I say.
[91] You can be my servant.
[92] ... Alright said Nyasha.
[93] If that's what's going to happen I'd be pleased to work for you.
[94] But don't go around being so cross.
[95] ... Everybody likes you better than they like me ... said Manyara, the elder sister.
[96] That's not true, people like you as well said Nyasha.
[97] But don't go around being cross or you'll only make enemies for yourself.
[98] Nyasha never told her father that Manyara was being nasty to her because she didn't want to upset him.
[99] Nyasha had one place where she was very very happy though.
[100] Outside their little house ... she had a little plot of land.
[101] And that's where she did her gardening.
[102] She grew yams ... she grew millet ... she grew vegetables and sunflowers ... and the food she shared with all the family.
[103] And one day ... when she was working in her little garden ... slithering between the vine yams there came a green snake.
[104] Now in Africa ... you must be careful of snakes because some of them are poisonous.
[105] But Nyasha knew this snake and she wasn't afraid.
[106] My friend, Nyoka come to me she said.
[107] You are very welcome here.
[108] You will keep away all the little creatures that would like to eat my vegetables.
[109] You can come here any time.
[110] And she made a little dint in the ground which filled with some water and became a little pool for the snake to drink out.
[111] ... As she worked in her garden Nyasha, who was so happy, sang a song.
[112] Not only to herself, not only to the vegetables but also to Ny
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [singing] [...] []
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [sings a song]
(F72PS000) [113] And she pulled up the weeds and she pulled up the teasels.
[114] And she ... gathered the vegetables [...] .
[115] And every time she sang her song the people knew that she'd be coming back [...] .
[116] And that's the reason they believed why her vegetables and her yams grew so [...] .
[117] ... One day a messenger came from the great city ... more than half a day's journey away across the river, to say that the great king had decided that he would like to have a wife.
[118] And a proclamation went out to everyone who lived far and near to say that he was looking not only for a beautiful wife, but also the most worthy wife that could be found.
[119] And he wanted all the girls who were interested to come to the great city.
[120] Manyara took her father to one side.
[121] Father she said, please don't send Nyasha.
[122] She would be so lonely to be without you.
[123] It would break her heart to have to go away, even to be wife to a king.
[124] I tell you what father, I'm your eldest daughter, I will go to the city, and I will become queen.
[125] And then you will have Nyasha to look after you.
[126] My child, said Mufaro her father, that is very kind of you ... but the king is the person who is going to choose.
[127] He is the one who'll decide who is most worthy, so you must both go.
[128] And that is what was decided upon.
[129] Well, that night everyone went to sleep because if there was going to be a wedding everybody in the village would surely have to go.
[130] And everybody knew that that would be a great journey.
[131] But Manyara was not happy.
[132] She got up at night and she set off towards the city all by herself, travelling through the forest.
[133] She had never travelled alone through the forest at night before.
[134] And she was a little worried.
[135] And she was a little afraid.
[136] There were animals who lived in the forest who went out hunting only at night.
[137] She set off with only a little food ... and she hadn't gone far when a small boy appeared right in the middle of the road.
[138] Please, he said, I am so hungry.
[139] May I have some food.
[140] Boy, she said, you're in my way.
[141] Get out of my way.
[142] I am going to the city.
[143] I am going to become your queen.
[144] Move.
[145] Now!
[146] And she brushed past him and continued down the road until she came to a place where two paths crossed and there was a little clearing.
[147] In the middle of the clearing, on a stone, sat an old woman ... who smiled at her and said hello Manyara.
[148] You're very welcome.
[149] Take that road to the city but be careful.
[150] The trees may bend and seem to laugh at you.
[151] Do not laugh back.
[152] And when you get further towards the city, on a little rise of the land, you'll meet a man with his head under his [...] under his arm.
[153] Be careful.
[154] And do not be rude to him in any way.
[155] Goodbye.
[156] How do you know my name?
[157] Said Manyara.
[158] And my journey is no business of yours.
[159] You foolish old woman.
[160] And she turned and went on down the path.
[161] And no sooner had she done that than the trees began to wave their branches towards her.
[162] And they seemed ... to laugh at her.
[163] ... Ha, she said, and laughed back as though trying to be brave, trying to be strong.
[164] But the trees still echoed in her ears.
[165] And then she came to a small rise in the land and there was a man, his head under his arm.
[166] ... You're in my path she said.
[167] Get out of my way.
[168] I am going to be a queen, and I do not people ... speak to people who displease me.
[169] And she walked around him, did not look at him.
[170] And she arrived in the city.
[171] Next morning Nyasha awoke back in her home village, the younger sister.
[172] There was great commotion outside.
[173] People were worried.
[174] People were bustling here and there.
[175] They were all looking for Manyara.
[176] Where could she be?
[177] What could have happened to her.
[178] Wait!
[179] Called someone.
[180] Here is her footprint on the path leading towards the city.
[181] She must have left already said Mufaro.
[182] We must all follow.
[183] And Nyasha and all her family and everybody from the village made a long long line and set off through the forest.
[184] They hadn't gone far when at the side of the road they saw a small boy.
[185] ... Little boy, she said.
[186] You look so hungry to me.
[187] Here ... take this food.
[188] And she offered him half of the yam that she had brought with her.
[189] Thank you, he said.
[190] And on they travelled through the forest until they came to a place where the roads crossed and there sat an old woman resting on a stone.
[191] ... She smiled at her.
[192] Old woman, she said ... you look tired.
[193] And the woman smiled but pointed at the direction that they were to go.
[194] Thank you said Nyasha.
[195] Here ... share my sunflower seeds with me.
[196] And she gave her a packet of sunflower seeds.
[197] And on they travelled until they reached the rise in the land.
[198] And Nyasha ran up to the top of the rise and saw the land and the city all below her.
[199] Oh father she said, this is so beautiful.
[200] I've never seen such a beautiful country in my life.
[201] Surely there must be some wonderful things happening here.
[202] Lead on said her father, and he lead the way till they came to the flowing river.
[203] Carefully they crossed the river and they made their way into the city.
[204] But no sooner had they got to the city than they heard a loud shriek of a girl's voice.
[205] And Manyara came rushing out of the temple.
[206] Don't come she said.
[207] Don't come.
[208] Stay where you are.
[209] Oh Nyasha my sister please, do not go into the temple.
[210] There is the most dreadful monster in there.
[211] He has five heads.
[212] And it's telling you about me.
[213] It's telling you all about [...] .
[214] Nyasha said don't worry my sister.
[215] We must not be afraid.
[216] We have come here to see the king and we must all go into the temple.
[217] Her father Mufaro comforted his eldest daughter.
[218] While Nyasha bravely went into the temple and there ... sitting on the throne that was made only for the chiefs there sat ... not a king ... not a prince
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [219] A queen.
(F72PS000) [220] not a man
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [221] A snake?
(F72PS000) [222] not a woman ... but a small, green snake.
[223] ... Nyoka said Nyasha.
[224] What are you doing here?
[225] And the snake spoke to her.
[226] I ... am not just a snake he said.
[227] For I am indeed ... and as he spoke he changed ... into a young, handsome man
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [228] The prince.
(F72PS000) [229] with beautiful black skin ... and a lovely smile on his face.
[230] I am your king, he said.
[231] But I am also Nyoka, your snake.
[232] I am also the boy who you met in the jungle.
[233] I am also the woman who sat at the crossroads.
[234] And I know you to be beautiful and to be most worthy to be my wife.
[235] Will you please become my queen?
[236] And Nyasha agreed.
[237] What a wedding there was to be.
[238] The king's mother and sister took her to their hut and they prepared the finest clothes for her.
[239] And she baked some bread with the millet flour that she had brought from her own garden.
[240] And there was a marriage.
[241] And there was a great feast.
[242] And their father became the happiest man in the whole kingdom.
[243] Nyasha lived with Nyoka her husband in the palace.
[244] And Manyara ... worked as their servant.
[245] ... That story comes from the Shona people of South Africa.
[246] And the names in the story are very important.
[247] The father's name was Mufaro.
[248] And in the Shona language that means ... happy man.
[249] Nyoka ... in Shona means a
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [250] No.
[251] It means a snake.
[252] I didn't know that you spoke African languages but you do now.
[253] It means a snake.
[254] But what do you think the girls' names meant?
[255] I've written it under here so I'm not going to hold it very close.
[256] What do you think the oldest girl's name meant?
[257] Her name was Manyara.
[258] What do you think she was like?
[259] Their father was certainly a very happy man.

(F72PS000) [268] Well done.
[269] It doesn't matter.
[270] Manyara means ashamed.
[271] Could you think of any other words that we could use to describe Manyara the eldest sister?
[272] What was she like?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [273] Nasty.
(F72PS000) [274] Nasty, yes.
[275] Anything else?

[286] Why was she brave?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [287] [...] she went in the woods.

[420] Well ... that story came all the way from Africa.

[432] Right, you go to sleep now, alright?
[433] Are you asleep?
[434] Oh dear.
[435] ... Cos this next story that I would to share with you ... is about a boy who I must have everybody sitting on their bottoms all alone please.
[436] And try not to touch anybody else during the story.
[437] Alright?
[438] ... Good.
[439] ... Now ... this story is about a boy who lived with his mother.
[440] ... I don't know when this story star ... are you ready boys?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [441] No.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [442] Yeah.
(F72PS000) [443] Can you sit nice and still please, on your bottoms, without touching anybody next to you.
[444] ... I don't know when this story started ... but it certainly happened a long time ago.
[445] It wasn't in your time, and it wasn't in my time.
[446] ... But it was a time when the boy and his mother, who lived in a little cottage just outside the town, had to earn their living ... from growing their own vegetables and doing what they could to help other people in order to make a living.
[447] ... He liked the cottage they lived in very much indeed.
[448] He liked the garden that they had very much indeed.
[449] He liked the path to the town.
[450] He liked the countryside all around.
[451] And he was so happy that he said to his mother one day, mother ... I want to live for ever.
[452] Oh my goodness she said, I can't help you there.
[453] You'll need to go and get some advice ... from the head wife at the end of the village.
[454] And at the end of the village there lived an old woman who was very very wise and said if you want to live for ever then you must speak to the person who's the oldest person I know.
[455] Go and speak to the old man of the woods.
[456] ... So up to the woods and there in the woods he heard the sound of an axe.
[457] Now do you know what the sound of an axe is like?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [458] [...] and trees.
[459] Old man he said, can you help me please?
[460] And the old man stopped and put his axe down.
[461] ... I want to live for ever t said the boy.
[462] Ah, said the old man.
[463] I'm going to live ... for as long as this forest remains standing.
[464] And it was a huge forest and it went for ever.
[465] And he put his axe into the tree again and the boy thought ... he's gonna chop down all these trees soon.
[466] Is there anybody else please ... who's going to live for a long time?
[467] Ah said the old man of the woods, there's the old man of the lake.
[468] And he is higher up the hill.
[469] So the boy climbed up the hill till he came to an enormous lake.
[470] ... Then in the lake an old man came up from under the water and took a great scoopful of water ... and drank deeply.
[471] ... The boy had never been more surprised in his life.
[472] Old man, he said, do you live here?
[473] I do said the old man who's hair was almost down to his waist.
[474] And I shall live here said the old man until I have drunk this whole lake dry.
[475] The lake was enormous and very very deep.
[476] And the old man drank again.
[477] ... Oh said the boy, you seem so thirsty.
[478] Eventually you'll have eaten and drunk all this lake.
[479] Is there anybody who's going to live for even longer than that?
[480] Ah said the old man, there's one other person.
[481] It could be the old man of the mountains.
[482] Go and ask him.
[483] And so he climbed to the mountains and there, high in the mountains, in an old stone building lived a man with hair ... down below his waist.
[484] Old man are you gonna live for a long time?
[485] I am he said.
[486] I shall live here until these mountains crumble into the sea.
[487] Oh that's a long time said the boy.
[488] Can I come and live with you and help you?
[489] You may, said the old man.
[490] And he did.
[491] But after many many years, the boy suddenly got worried.
[492] I want to see my mother he said.
[493] I want to go and see the place where I was brought up, my little house, the garden and the road to town.
[494] I want to go back and visit her.
[495] No said the old man.
[496] Don't do that.
[497] Stay here with me or you might be sorry.
[498] ... The boy thought for a mom

Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [628] Yes.
(F72PS000) [629] Sit down on your bottoms everybody now please.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [630] And we'll see what you think of this story here.
[631] ... In Scotland ... by the shore there lived a fisherman who's name was Angus.
[632] ... He'd been a fisherman all his life.
[633] He had his own little boat and do you know ... where farmers make farrows on the land, the only mark that was left behind by Angus was the mark where he pulled his boat up on to the shore every day that the weather was not too rough.
[634] The thing that he loved most of all in the whole world ... was the sea.
[635] And he would sing to himself in his house or in his boat the song which his father had taught him many years ago. ...
(F72PS001) [sings a song]
(F72PS000) [636] He sang about his love of the sea.
[637] Every now and then Angus would go into the town.
[638] He'd drink a dram with his friends.
[639] But they would say to him Angus, isn't it about time you found yourself ... a wife?
[640] Someone to share your life with?
[641] ... He shook his head [...] .
[642] I could never love anyone who wasn't like the sea.
[643] Wild ... free.
[644] He loved the sea so much.
[645] ... One day, it was close to midsummer, a day not unlike today.
[646] Angus had been to the town and he made his way back to his cottage along the shore.
[647] As he went he heard the music of the sea.
[648] [...] he heard the sounds of some other voices singing on the shore.
[649] As he came up over the rise he thought he heard a beautiful song.
[650] Some girls were dancing and singing on the beach, leaping in and out of.
[651] As they played and as they sang and as they danced they made no mark on the sand at all.
[652] Angus was ... entranced.
[653] He hadn't heard such a beautiful sound ... he hadn't seen such a beautiful sight.
[654] ... As he moved his way down on to the beach, he clumsily knocked the stones and the girls saw him and rushed to the rocks where they picked up not clothes, but sealskins which they wrapped around their bodies and then dived back into the sea.
[655] Except for one girl who ran towards the rock where Angus was leaning, not just on the rock but also on a sealskin.
[656] Please, she said ... that's my skin there.
[657] Let me have it back.
[658] I must go with my people.
[659] I must have it.
[660] Please give it back to me.
[661] The skin was so beautiful to touch and the girl had such a beautiful face.
[662] No he said, I can't give it back to you, you're the person that I've been looking for all my life.
[663] Please, please come and live with me.
[664] Please come and be my wife.
[665] I must go back to the sea, she said.
[666] That's where I live.
[667] ... But Angus had hold of the skin.
[668] And although she was sad, she knew that she had to go with him and she did.
[669] Up the shore they walked.
[670] And she shuddered when her feet first touched the grass.
[671] ... Back into the cottage he showed her the way and gave her so
(F72PS001) [sings a song]
(F72PS000) [672] The children had heard this song many times but they were always sad that it sounded such a ... lonely song.
[673] And while they played in the barn and while their mother sang ... the girl found something behind the haystack.
[674] It was soft, softer than anything she had ever touched before.
[675] She held it to her face and it was so beautiful.
[676] She told her brothers and they too put their faces into the soft sealskin.
[677] Mother, mother they called, come and see what we've found.
[678] And they all held out the sealskin towards her.
[679] Oh my children she said.
[680] She dropped the bowl that she was using to the floor.
[681] Thank you.
[682] She put the sealskin round her body and she kissed each of her children.
[683] And she hugged her daughter very tight.
[684] Never forget me my dear she said.
[685] I will always help you in your future life.
[686] But boys ... you must all tell your father that he must look after you now.
[687] Goodbye.
[688] And she took the skin and she ran down to the shore ... and she put on the skin, dived back into the sea.
[689] A seal's head bobbed up from the waves and Angus was pulling on his oars, heaving the skiff back to the shore.
[690] A seal called out to him, goodbye Angus, goodbye.
[691] Look after the children for me.
[692] Farewell, farewell.
[693] The seal dived away and a moment later two seals appeared together in the water and swam away together.
[694] The children told their father what had happened but he knew.
[695] But ... whenever Angus and his daughter went out in the boat fishing for their lives to keep themselves fed, it seemed that a seal swam in front of the boat and lead them towards the places where the fishes were thickest in the sea in that part of the coast.
[696] And they never forgot their mother.
[697] And they never forgot ... how important the sea was in their lives.
[698] Now that is the story of a seal wife.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [699] Yeah.
(F72PS000) [700] Thank you all for listening.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [701] Well.
[702] That's the end of our stories.
[703] And somebody has got a question.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [704] Yeah, my dad works in Scotland.
(F72PS000) [705] Well I never.
[706] I wonder if he's ever seen a seal?
[707] And there are lots of people who live in Scotland who tell stories all about the seals.
[708] Have any of you ever seen a seal?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [709] Shh.
[710] Good.
[711] Now one or two people have got something they want to ask.
[712] So let's listen please.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [713] And those people who've got their hands up ... boys!
[714] Can you be quiet please, so that we can hear the people who want to speak.
[715] I think before we ask any other questions, we'll ask everybody to just have a stretch.
[716] Everybody ... two arms and a big stretch and everybody have a big yawn.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [717] Ooh [...]
(F72PS000) [718] Ooh.
[719] Now ... is there anybody here ... who was born as an animal?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [720] Everyone was.
(F72PS000) [721] And so were you born as an animal?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [722] Yes I was.
(F72PS000) [723] What animal are you most like?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [724] A dinosaur.
(F72PS000) [725] A dinosaur.
[726] That's very interesting.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [727] I'm a monkey.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [728] Sorry?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [729] A human, you're a human being?
[730] Alright.
[731] I just wanted to make sure [...] .
[732] Right so [claps hands] everybody, listen please.
[733] Boys.
[734] Donald has still got his ... microphone here and he wants to hear what everybody's got to say.
[735] And if we all talk at the same time, he can't hear anything.
[736] He's come a very long way to see what you've got to say as well as hear the stories.
[737] Now what did you want to say at the back?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [738] Cla some of class seven enjoyed the story that much [...] story about seals before we came in.
(F72PS000) [739] You've heard a story about seals before?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [740] Yes.
(F72PS003) [741] This afternoon we had a story called the seal king wasn't it?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [742] It was all about [...]
(F72PS000) [743] Really.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [744] Yeah.
(F72PS003) [745] It wasn't the same story but it was a story about seals.
(F72PS000) [746] What a coincidence.
(F72PS003) [747] What a strange coincidence wasn't it?
(F72PS000) [748] Oh absolutely.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [749] And what happened in your seal story?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [750] I'm doing some listening over here.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [751] A fisherman caught a seal.
[752] A king seal out of the sea.
(F72PS000) [753] A king seal?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [754] Mhm.
(F72PS000) [755] And what happened to the seal?
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [756] And erm [...]
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [757] Shh shh shh.
[758] We're listening.
Unknown speaker (F72PSUNK) [...]
(F72PS000) [759] That's a very good story.
[760] And those stories are very very old.
[761] And for many many years nobody wrote those stories down at all.
[762] So the fact that you've heard those seal stories, two different ones, is very important.
[763] Particularly if you've written them down.
[764] ... You're not supposed to still be yawning.
[765] Alright ... now I just wonder if it might be worthwhile just some people going back to the classroom now or some stay or?

[774] That's [...]
(F72PS000) [775] I've got one or two questions I'd like to ask you ... and I wonder what your reply is gonna be.
[776] Now, in order for Donald to be able to hear the replies as well, we must only have one person talking at a time.
[777] I want you just to close your eyes for one minute everybody please.
[778] And I want you to think about the sound that you, not touching anybody!
