Scene 1 (00:20 – 01:02)
Mark: This is the park near my house in London. That’s my friend, Sam. He’s a visiting student from the United States. We often come here to play football.
Sam: Hey, Mark! Where’s your sister today?
Mark: Sophie? She’s at the sports center. She has tennis practice with her friend, Kim.
Sam: Kim? Cool! Let’s go!
Through the woods?
Mark: Through the woods!

Scene 2 (01:03 – 02:27)
Mark: I’m thirsty. Let’s go to the café in the sports center.
Sam: Does Sophie like all sports?
Mark: Well, she plays tennis and hockey and she goes swimming.
Sam: I’m tired. Look!
Mark: What are they doing?
Nick: Can you be careful? We don’t want any mistakes.
Kevin: What are you doing?
Sam: What are you doing?
Kevin: Can you go please?
Nick: Kevin! Can you come over here, please?
Mark: Why is that man in the tree? And what are those men doing over there?
Kevin: Go on. Off you go. We’re busy! Goodbye!
Mark: Strange.
Sam: Very strange.

Scene 3 (02:28 – 03:46)
Mark: This is my sister, Sophie. That’s her friend, Kim. We told them about the men in the woods.
Sophie: Do you think the men in the woods want to build houses there?
Mark: Maybe.
Kim: That’s terrible. We don’t want houses in the woods!
Sophie: Tell us more about the men.
Sam: There’s a man. He has very short hair. And he’s very grumpy.
Mark: And there’s a man in a green jacket. His name’s Nick.
Sam: He has a red backpack.
Sophie: A green jacket and a red backpack?
Sam: It’s him. Is he alone? Kim! Have a look!
Kim: No. There’s another man, a woman and a girl. The girl’s about fourteen,
I think. She’s tall with brown hair.
Mark: OK. You two girls – try and talk to the girl.

Scene 4 (03:47 – 04:19)
Sophie: Hi.
Kirsty: Hi.
Sophie: How are you doing?
Kirsty: Fine. Thanks.
Kim: I like your T-shirt.
Kirsty: Thanks.
Sophie: And I like your earrings.
Kirsty: Cool.
Kim: I’m Kim! And this is Sophie.
Sophie: What’s your name?
Kirsty: Kirsty.
Sophie: Nice name. Where do you live?
Kirsty: Um …
Nick: Kirsty!

Scene 5 (04:20 – 05:20)
Kevin: Here. And there.
Nick: That’s good.
Kevin: The woods are great.
Nick: And there are other places in London, too. I’ve got a video!
Kirsty: Hey! It’s 11 o’clock.
Penny: Oh. Time to go.
Are you OK?
Kirsty: Yes. I’m fine.
Kevin: Come on. Let’s go.
Mark: Look! Their video.
Sam: Let’s take the video to the police.
Mark: OK. But let’s watch it first.

Scene 1 (05:28 – 05:59)
Previously …
Mark: We saw some strange men in the woods. Then they came into the café with a woman and a girl. We wanted to know more. They left a video on the table. We decided to watch it, and then take it to the police. We cycled home really fast …

Scene 2 (06:00 – 06:59)
Sam: Turn the TV on! Quick, Mark! Can I sit here?
Kim: Of course.
Sophie: This is exciting. Hurry! I’ve got a jazz dancing class at half past twelve.
Mark: Shhhh. Here it is.
Sophie: Why are there pictures of the Tower of London?
Mark: That’s Buckingham Palace. Why do they want to go to these places?
Kim: Look! There’s Big Ben.
Sophie: And the Houses of Parliament.
Mark: Who was the girl in the café?
Sophie: And who was the woman? And those men?
Kim: I know! I know! I bet they’re spies.

Scene 3 (07:00 – 07:28)
Mark: Sophie loves jazz dancing. She goes to a class every week. Today she had a big surprise. Guess who was at the class? The girl in the café. Kirsty! I wanted to talk to her.

Scene 4 (07:29 – 08:07)
Mark: There you are! You’re late! Oh hi!
Kirsty: Hi.
Mark: Hi! I love jazz dancing. It’s brilliant!
Sophie: Huh! You don’t love it …
Mark: It’s my favourite kind of dancing. It’s amazing! What sports do you like? I play tennis. There are tennis courts here. Maybe we can …
Kirsty: Sorry. I have to go.
Sophie: Mark, you hate dancing!

Scene 5 (08:08 – 09:11)
Mark: The next day, Sam and I went back to the woods.
Sam: Come on, we don’t want to be late for our karate class!
Mark: But look! What are they doing?
Sam: This is really weird. Look! There’s Nick. Let’s try to listen.
Kevin: The video tape?
Nick: Yeah, it was in my backpack yesterday. Now it’s not there.
Kevin: Oi! You two again. Go away. Faster!

Scene 6 (09:12 – 09:47)
Mark: I love doing karate. I started at the age of six. Normally I’m quite good at karate. But that day I wasn’t very good at all. And that was because of … Kirsty! She’s brilliant at karate, too!

Scene 7 (09:48 – 11:30)
Mark: I want to talk to Kirsty and ask her some questions. Why is she here? What’s the big secret in the woods?
Watch this … I’m so cool …! Kirsty! Hi!
Kirsty: Hi!
Mark: You’re really good at karate! Brilliant! Wow! Amazing! Karate! Jazz dancing! Do you give autographs?
Sam: Hello.
Kirsty: Hi.
Sam: You’re new. Where do you go to school?
Kirsty: I don’t go to school. I have lessons at home.
Sam: Oh! I see. We saw your friends in the woods. What’s happening in there?
Kirsty: I don’t know.
Sorry, I have to go.
Mark: Oh, hang on – wait! You …
Kirsty: Don’t look at that. Thanks. Bye.
Mark: Why is she in a smart car? And who is that woman?
Sam: I don’t know. But I know something. You were really cool!

Scene 1 (11:37 – 12:14)
Previously …
Mark: Kirsty went to the jazz dancing class. We were really surprised. And then she went to my karate class. She got into a smart car with a woman. Who was the woman? We still didn’t know much about the man with the backpack. Except that his name was Nick. But why was he in the woods?

Scene 2 (12:15 – 13:15)
Kim: Do you think that the woman is Kirsty’s mum?
Sophie: No. They’re very different.
Kim: What about Nick, the man? Is he her dad?
Sophie: I don’t think so.
It’s the car. Kirsty’s car!
Kim: And there’s Kirsty!
Sophie: Kirsty!
Kim: Hi! What are you doing here?
Penny: We’re going to borrow some math books.
Sophie: Why?
Kirsty: I have lessons at home.
Penny: Where can I find Mrs. Thomas, the math teacher?
Sophie: She’s in the staff room. This way. The staff room’s just here. Come and see our classroom.
Penny: Go on. Just for a minute.

Scene 3 (13:16 – 14:17)
Sophie: Is that your mum?
Kirsty: No. She’s my teacher. What’s that?
Kim: Well, this is our project about the history of pop music. Do you like pop music?
Kirsty: It’s OK.
Sophie: Look! Here’s Britney Spears and here’s Blue. This is Mick Jagger. He’s very old now. And this is Kylie. She’s so pretty. Oh! And this is Melinda Browne. She has an amazing voice … She had her first record contract at the age of twelve!
Kirsty: Right. That’s great.

Scene 4 (14:18 – 15:24)
Mark: This afternoon we are going back to the woods. And this time we’re going to …
Sam: I’m bored with the woods. You only talk about that.
Mark: But Sam! This man is going to damage our beautiful woods!
Sam: You’re not really interested in the woods.
You’re just interested in Kirsty.
Mark: No I’m not! It’s just …
Sophie: Ahem!
Mark: Oh! Hi! Wow! You’re here!
Kirsty: Am I?
Mark: Yes … well … um … Woah! This is a surprise! Are you listening to music? I love listening to music. I sometimes listen to rap music, but I prefer hip hop. What’s your favorite music? What are you listening to …?
Kirsty: I … have to go.
Penny: Ahem! Come on Kirsty! We’re going to do math this evening.
Kirsty: But I’m going to karate tomorrow.
Mark: OK.
Kirsty: See you there.

Scene 5 (15:25 – 15:56)
Mark: Later that afternoon, Sam and I went back to the woods. Again!
Sam: I think they’re going to build a huge block of apartments!
Mark: Don’t be silly.
Sam: It was only a joke! Well, what are we going to do? Jump out from behind the tree and scare them? WOOOAAH!
Mark: No. But we must do something.

Scene 6 (15:57 – 16:55)
Mark: The next day, Saturday, after karate class I wanted to talk to Kirsty.
Oh, Kirsty! Hi! We’re going to the cinema. Would you … like to come with us?
Kirsty: Yes … but… I have to go home.
Mark: But where’s home? Where do you live?
Thisis crazy! She’s not happy. She needs help. I’m going to follow her.
Sophie: Mark! Ring me on your mobile! Let me know where you are!
Mark: OK!
Sophie: Well, we can’t go to the cinema now. We must wait until he rings us. He’s right. Perhaps Kirsty needs help.

Scene 1 (16:56 – 17:26)
Previously …
Mark: I really wanted to know more about Kirsty. Where did she live? Was she unhappy? There was something wrong. I decided to follow her.
I followed the car. I had my mobile phone with me to call Sophie.

Scene 2 (17:26 – 18:17)
Sophie: Hello! Mark! Where are you? Where?
He’s at the Medway Hotel.
Where? Go past the supermarket, turn left at the bank … then go straight on … and turn right at the chemist’s. OK. OK!
Here’s my mum. Come on!

Scene 3 (18:18 – 19:29)
Sophie: Hi, Mum!
Mom: Oh! Hello! Are you all going to the cinema?
Sophie: Can you drive us to the Medway Hotel, please? Mark’s there. Please don’t ask any questions. We have to go now.
Mom: But … Is he all right?
Sophie: He’s fine. I’m going to explain but not now.
Mom: Can you tell me the way?
Sophie: Yes.
Radio: OK … This is Melinda Browne …
Mom: OK. So what’s this all about?
Sophie: Did you know about Kirsty? Did Mark tell you about her?
Mom: Yes, he did.
Sophie: Well, he followed her. He thinks she’s in danger.
Mom: Oh! That’s ridiculous!
Sophie: No. Something is wrong. Turn left!
Sam: Hey! This is a great song. It’s Melinda Browne. She’s Mark’s favorite pop star. He’s crazy about her.
Kim: Huh! I thought he was CRAZY about Kirsty!

Scene 4 (19:30 – 20:59)
Mark: Come on! This way.
Sophie: Can you wait here, please, Mom? Thanks.
Mark: It’s her! She’s shouting at someone. I think she’s angry!
Oh no! We’re in trouble.
Sam: Let’s go! Come on!
Kirsty: Stop! Don’t run away!
Mark: Can we help? Shall we get the police?
Kirsty: No.
Mark: But you shouted at someone in there. You were scared.
Kirsty: No! It’s singing, not shouting.
All: Singing!
Nick: Please can you stop following us? We’re busy. We’ve got a lot to do. Tomorrow is the big day.
Kirsty: Please don’t be angry, Nick. They’re my friends. Sorry. It’s all OK. I’m fine.
Mark: So you’re not in danger?
Nick: Look. We can’t explain now. Come to the woods tomorrow morning at half past eight, and then you can find out.
Kevin: Don’t tell ANYONE!

Scene 5 (21:00 – 23:29)
Mark: So, the next morning we went to the woods.
It’s …
Melinda: Hi!
Mark: It’s you, you’re … you’re Melinda Browne!
Melinda: That’s right. We’re filming a pop video. It’s for my new single. We’re using lots of places in London.
Mark: You’re Kirsty. AND you’re Melinda Browne. This is impossible!
Melinda: No. It’s true. This is a new location for my new video. But I couldn’t tell you. It was a big secret. It still is a big secret. We’re going to film all over London.
Mark: Yes, of course you are!
Theplaces on the research video were locations for her video.
Melinda: And you nearly read my song …
Mark: Did I?
Melinda: And you nearly listened to my song.
Mark: I did?
Yes! I did. She had her own song on the CD, so she could learn it! Suddenly it all made sense.
The jazz dancing was for the video …
And the karate …
Penny was her teacher because Kirsty wasn’t near her home or to her school.
Melinda: Mark? Are you OK?
Mark: Yes! I’m fine! Just fine!
Melinda: Have fun watching.
Do you want to go to the movies at the weekend? I have some free time then.
Mark: Sure. Great. Cool.

Scene 6 (23:30 – 25:00)
Melinda Browne:
I love this city
I love this city
And my feet don’t touch the ground
I love this city
I love this city
And my feet don’t touch the ground
I love this city
I love this city
And this world just spins me, spins me round.
This is my world
This is my place
The place I call my home
This is my world
It’s my own space
The place I call my own
My feet never seem to touch the ground
This is my place, my life, my town.
