Oh dear Morc and Skelly are at it again and somehow Garth and Bev have gotten mixed up in the mess!

Skelly has challenged Morc to a boat race, but when everyone gets out to sea the oars are lost overboard and they can’t get back to shore!

Luckily Garth and Bev see a jellyfish propelling himself through the water and get the great idea to propel the boats back to shore. Grandfather Lir is so proud of his grandchildren he sends them through the time spiral to meet Frank Whittle who invented Jet propulsion. The invention that makes planes go really fast through the air!

Grandfather Lir is so happy Garth and Bev learnt something new that he decides its time for a little treat.

The time spiral! Yay!

How do eagles learn to fly?


Baby eagles need to learn how to survive in the wild, but they don’t go to school like you. Baby eagles learn from watching their parents.  This is a special animal behaviour called imprinting.

When a baby eagle is only 2 months old he will start watching how his Mummy hunts for food and also how she flies. To help the baby eagle, the Mummy will fly round and round the nest, with food in her claws. This makes the baby eagle curious (and also very hungry!) so he will jump out of the nest and start trying to fly! When the baby eagle is 6 months old he will be an expert flyer.

Do you remember how Enda the eagle couldn’t fly very well so Garth and Bev showed him?

This is how you fly Enda!

Enda figures it out!

Well eagles are funny creatures; because Enda was so young he thought Garth and Bev were his parents!

Go Enda!

Eagles aren’t the only birds that copy what their parents do. Ducks and geese think the first animal they see when they are born is their Mum!  Watch the movie ‘Fly Away Home’ to see how a whole flock of geese thought a kid, just like you, was their Mum!

Did you know?

 A baby eagle in captivity needs to be fed by an eagle hand puppet!  Otherwise the baby eagle gets confused and won’t be able to learn how to fly from real eagles, because he thinks he’s human!

Episode – Aeroplane


Garth and Bev help out their baby eagle friend

Garth and Bev help out Edna the eagle

Poor little Enda the Eagle, he’s learning how to fly but doesn’t know how to turn and he keeps crashing into things!

Garth and Bev need to discover which feathers Enda should use to turn whilst flying. 

If they can discover something new; Grandfather Lir will send Garth and Bev through the time spiral to meet the inventors who discovered the aeroplane!

Can you discover the names of these two great inventors and learn something new just like Garth and Bev? 

Clue: the two inventors are brothers.
