Farming Scene 1
Do the first two Tasks while watching the video, then try Task 3. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.
Think about the following questions:
- Have you ever got lost while driving in the country?
- How might you feel if you were lost in the forest at dusk?
Watch Stephen and Ashlie trying to find their way to a farm in the country.
Stephen: [talking to cows]
Ashlie: Stephen. Will you help me? I think we're here and we need to be there.
Stephen: Let me see. No, we're here and we should be there. We should have turned left back there.
Ashlie: We've come away to the countryside for a weekend on a farm, but we're having a bit of trouble finding it.
Stephen: No, we aren't, Ash. That has to be it there. We need to turn left back there. Come on, jump in.
Ashlie: Why won't it start?
Stephen: I don't know.
Ashlie: Did you put any petrol in the car?
Stephen: No. I thought you were going to put petrol in the car.
Ashlie: No. You said you were going to put petrol in the car. Oh, this is hopeless. We'll have to walk. This is your fault, Stephen.
Stephen: Hang on, there's something coming. We can get a lift.
Ashlie: Hey! Excuse me.
Farmhand: Hello there.
Stephen: Do you know where Strawberry Farm is?
Farmhand: Yes, I'm going in that direction. Hop on!
Farmhand: Go straight down there, along the path and across the field.
Ashlie: Great. Thank you very much.
Stephen: It can't be much further, can it? I'm getting really hungry.
Ashlie: Keep going.
Stephen: What are you eating?
Ashlie: Hmm? Oh. Blackberries. There are loads of them. These are really delicious. I love blackberries.
Stephen: We should get going. Before it gets dark.
Ashlie: Stephen, this is horrible. Arrgh! What was that? I think I just stood in something. It smells terrible. I think it might be...
Stephen: Ashlie, stop moaning! We're going round in circles. We should go that way.
Ashlie: We're completely lost, aren't we? What if we don't find it?
Stephen: What was that?
Ashlie: It's just an owl, Stephen.
Stephen: I hate the countryside. Let's get out of here. Look, there's a light over there.
Ashlie: Look over there. There's someone in the field. What are they doing there? I'm scared. Hello! Excuse me!
Stephen: Why is he ignoring us?
Ashlie: I don't know. This is weird. I'm scared, Stephen.
Stephen: Let's walk a little faster. Come on, Ash!
Farmer: You must be Stephen and Ashlie. What's happened to you?
Ashlie: Quick! Let us in! There's a strange man outside.
Stephen: Let me in!
