The edited video
(11 minutes 9 seconds):
titles are accompanied by shots of a local street, the children in Beckett Park,
and the school itself.
We cut to a
black-and-white 'widescreen' format - the style of the interview sections in this
video - where Izoduwa is seated with a guest: 'Good morning, and in the show with
me I've got Claire ---, on about the environment. If you want to call in and ask
Claire questions, you know the number by now. [To Claire:] Where you live,
is it tidy or is it messy?'. 'Pretty messy'. 'And being an environmental person,
wouldn't you not think like it should be tidy?'. 'Yes'. 'So why don't you do something

in sunglasses, standing outside, by a sign: 'Round here, it's really, like, tree-ey,
and it's like a sign behind me, and it says "no tipping", so it probably used
to be like, really like messy round here, so that's why they've put that sign
up, but it's still messy even though they've got that sign up'. Laura then shows
us a similarly unkempt area.
We return to
Izoduwa interviewing Claire: 'What do you think of your environment, the world
environment?'. 'Some parts it's messy, some parts it's clean'. 'But what do you
think of it? Do you think it should be tidy, do you think it should - what
do you think about it exactly?'. 'More people should stop dropping litter'. 'And
that's including yourself?'. 'Yeah'. 'Very well...'.
Alan shows us
another green but messy area near the school: 'There's litter all around the place,
so it's not a nice area to play, for kids. Well, it could be if it got cleaned
up, 'cause there's loads of trees and stuff, but it's just not nice, 'cause of
all the litter'.
Music, and we
go to the local shops, where we find Izoduwa. 'If you want to help our environment,
then what you have to do is put your litter, after you've finished it, in the
bin. Now you see round here is messy, all because of you. Now just because I live
round here doesn't mean I drop the litter. I don't drop nothing. I always put
it in these litter bins, so why don't you do the same?'. She then demonstrates
by finishing her drink and dropping the can in the bin. 'See, that's all that
you have to do. So this is an advertisement of all you have to do is put your
rubbish in the bin, and you can help our environment. Thank you'.
We cut to Laura,
being interviewed: 'The school, round here... we can pick up the litter. And people
who live round here should do, like, a meeting or something, and pick it all up,
'This is Beckett Park,' and to music we see the children playing on the slide
and swings, which they energetically jump from. Laura shows us graffiti on the
equipment, but says, 'It is a very nice place to come and play, and the grass
is always cut round here'. Izoduwa shows us the park in more detail, and notes,
'There's trees all around it, so it's a nice site. There's not that much litter
because there's a nice, stoney bin around the corner, and there's benches for
you if you just want to sit down and read. So really, this is a beautiful park,
for peace'. Alan then slides into shot, and adds further largely appreciative
us the 'beautiful' woods and flowers in the park, which the other children are
playing in. 'It's really nice round here'.
Laura says that the town centre is particularly messy with litter: 'There's a
lot of people that go round there and just drop it, and they couldn't care less'.
us people relaxing in the sunny park. We then see Izoduwa in a different part
of the park: 'Okay, this is the environment that I'm in, and you're in,
cameragirl, and I'd just like to say, all these things on the floor are a part
of nature. [...] It's just peaceful, and it's a nice place for all of us to be'.
us about the Beckett Park campus of the Metropolitan University. He decides, 'They've
done a good job to make it look like this'. Izoduwa adds: 'One thing what's nice
about this place, is that it's got a lovely nice park so you can come and
study, like that lady over there. It's tidy, it's clean, and it's just a nice
view to look at. There's no litter, it's, erm, got nice trees, and it's just a
perfect place to come to'.
We cut to Alan,
being interviewed, who says, quite thoughtfully and quietly, 'If nobody cared
about the environment then it'd be, there'd be loads of litter, and everything
about would stink, and stuff like that, and there'd be black clouds in the sky
every day, there'd be acid rain and everything, so, there has to be somebody who
cares about the environment'.
To music, we
see other shots from the production, going into the end titles, including a shot
of each child as they are named.
