01:15:53 sarah: finding companionship in pets during lockdown – lovely
01:16:15 Judith Rifeser (ALL London): So true
01:16:45 Mark Reid: There are a lot pets featured – one of the things that children all over the world seem to have in common
01:19:21 Marie Elder: a sense of comfort in the ordinary, small things
01:19:29 Murielle Werner: spending more time inside make you spend more time with pets, for young people, new sensations linked to quiet and slower life rhythm which is novelty in this rushed society where being busy is glorified and sign of success.
01:19:33 Rachel Bondarenko: This is wonderful. My son is also watching it with me and the town shown in Colombia is where he is from but yet to visit – a lovely surprise for him!

01:20:29 sarah: Lots of people alone all over the world, but sharing the same warmth from the sun, wherever they are. That gives me a mixed sensation of sadness and warmth!
