Flying Sheep

(A small set of a gate in the country overlooking a field. A real rustic in smock and floppy hat is leaning on the gate. A city gent on holiday appears behind him. Off-screen baa-ing noises troughout)

CAPTION: PART 2
CAPTION: "SHEEP"



CITY GENT
Good afternoon.

RUSTIC
Afternoon.

CITY GENT
Ah, lovely day isn't it?

RUSTIC
Ar, 'tis that.

CITY GENT
You here on holiday?

RUSTIC
No, no, I live 'ere.

CITY GENT
Oh, jolly good too. I say, those are sheep, aren't they?

RUSTIC
Ar.

CITY GENT
Yes, yes of course, I thought so... only... er why are they up in the trees?

RUSTIC
A fair question and one that in recent weeks has been much on my mind. It's my considered opinion that they're nesting.

CITY GENT
Nesting?

RUSTIC
Ar.

CITY GENT
Like birds?

RUSTIC
Exactly. Birds is a key to the whole problem. It's my belief that these sheep are labouring under the misapprehension that they're birds. Observe their behaviour. Take for a start the sheeps' tendency to hop about the field on their back legs.

(off-screen baa-ing)

Now witness their attempts to fly from tree to tree. Notice that they do not so much fly as...plummet.

(Sound of sheep plummenting)

CITY GENT
Yes, but why do they think they're birds?

RUSTIC
Another fair question. One thing is for sure, the sheep is not a creature of the air. They have enormous difficulty in the comparatively simple act of perching.

(crash)

As you see. As for flight, its body is totally unadapted to the problems of aviation.
Trouble is, sheep are very dim. Once they get an idea in their heads, there's no shifting it.

CITY GENT
But where did they get the idea?

RUSTIC
From Harold. H'es that sheep over there under the elm. He's that most dangerous of animals - a clever sheep. He's the ring-leader. He has realized that a sheep's life consists of standing around for a few months and then being eaten. And that's a depressing prospect for an ambitious sheep. His patently hit on the idea of escape.

CITY GENT
But why don't just get rid of Harold?

RUSTIC
Because of the enormous commercial possibilities should he succeeds.

VOICE OVER
And what exactly are the commercial possibilities of ovine aviation?
