Danger Falling Sheep is the first episode of the Season 5.


Norman wants to find fame by conquering the summit of Pontypandy Mountain but his ascent is stalled when Woolly the lamb lands on his head.

Trapped on a ledge, Norman and Woolly nibble biscuits whilst their friends raise the alarm. Sam tries to rescue Norman with Jupiter's extending ladder, but it cannot reach far enough. Meanwhile Norman is getting his fifteen minutes of fame whilst he is being air-lifted to safety by Tom Thomas the Mountain Rescue Heli-pilot, as a reporter is filming the whole rescue for the 6 o'clock news on television.
