Big and Small

Series 3

Episode 17: A Room with a View

Duration: 10 minutes

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

Big is happily looking through his book, The View from Different Windows, admiring all the lovely pictures of waterfalls, seas and rivers. Small doesn't think any are as good as their own view of the garden - until Big points out a picture of a mountain. Both friends agree it would be brilliant to have a mountain view.

Small has an idea: why don't they go out and get a mountain? Big thinks it might be better to build a mountain than to find one and carry it all the way home - because mountains are pretty large! Small challenges Big: Small will look for a mountain and Big will try to make one... and the first one to give the house a marvellous mountain view will win a prize!

Big piles earth into a mountain shape and covers it with planks and wooden beams to make it steady. He drapes over a green tablecloth and a small white napkin so it looks just like a green mountain with a snowy white top. However, when Big steps away from his mountain it creaks and wobbles alarmingly.

Meanwhile, Small is looking across the garden through his binoculars. Suddenly, he sees a mountain! But when he puts the binoculars down he realises it's not a mountain but a molehill... But that makes it a small mountain and a small mountain is perfect! He puts the molehill into his truck and pulls it back to the house.

On the way he meets Big. Big shows Small his own mountain - but two seconds later the whole pile collapses! So, Small has won the competition. They put Small's mountain on the kitchen table so they will have a mountain view at any time, while Small wonders what his prize will be - a mountain party with cake and donkeys, perhaps? Show less
