Plot
Whilst doing their homework online, (Surf, Surfin’ on the Internet) Mark and Mary-Lou discover a website called www.thelastrainbow.com. The site asks them to type in a number between one and seven, and when Mark types in the numbers, each scene takes him to different areas on the planet where the environment is under threat: Mark sees that the rainforest is under threat from de-forestation for cattle grazing (Money Grows on Trees), he visits the ice-cap and sees the Polar bear tanning himself in the hot sun because of the depleted ozone layer, (It's Cool to be a Bear); a family visit the Pyramids and although there is a lack of water in the desert, they casually discard their spent plastic water bottles with no regard for the issues of drought around them. (The Ship of the Desert). In the ocean, the sea creatures are preparing for a musical gig by practising on instruments they have made from all of the junk that humans have discarded in the sea, (Sea Blues) and in the city, strange goings-on are noticed as the rodents are in communication with their leader who wants to take over the planet by stealth. However, help is at hand from Mr.Lastrainbow, a colourful character, who rescues the earth from the rats, and their cunning leader, Boss rat! This show has a serious message (The Last Rainbow) about how humans are destroying the environment, and how we must all try to connect with each other to save our planet before it is too late!
