Look up there!Mike gets all excited as he points out the monkeys monkeying around at Monkey World!  We see the monkeys enjoying cool ices lobbed in by the keepers on this hot day and Belinda enjoying Mike's (he's a little monkey) ice cream.  Later we watch 'Monkey Business' on TV.

A short walk up to the Cerne Abbas GiantIn this clip we start at the viewpoint for the Cerne Abbas Giant and walk through the Dorset countryside to get a closer look.  Returning, Belinda decides on a different route, taking us through thick undergrowth where we get bitten and stung before we take a final look at The Giant.
