Why did you want to watch the film/show?
Because I like firemen and Fireman Sam.

What was it about? (may contain spoilers)
Fireman Sam saves Charlie when he falls of the lighthouse, because he is trying to fix it during a big storm. Then Sam gets a medal and the man that gives Sam the medal asks Sam to leave Pontypandy to have his own fire station. Then Sam saves Mike when he falls in the sea. Then the Pontypandy Pioneers go camping in the woods (forest), and Sam says not to make a fire but Norman and his cousin try to make sausages and it sets the wood on fire. Then there’s a big fire and everyone tries to stop it but they can’t and Elvis saves Sam, then they get in Charlie’s boat because the fire can’t get to them in the sea. Then it rains and stops the fire and Elvis gets a medal.

Parent’s notes:
This extended episode of Fireman Sam is a firm favourite of TKS (5) and LAKS (3) in our household, with me having to stream it at least once a day for them. It follows the normal pattern of Fireman Sam episodes with Sam being called upon by various residents of Pontypandy for help. As usual it’s Norman Price that causes the main problem for Sam and the crew from Pontypandy fire station. Any Fireman Sam fans will love watching this film.
