Where the black rocks stand guard against the cold sea

The most poetic and evocative line ever spoken on a children's television programme. OK, it's not Sigrid Undset, but it's as close as an eight year-old can want. I found an episode of Noggin the Nog on youtube but didn't embed it because the "related videos" include filth. I've flagged them and left a note for whoever is responsible for such things on youtube, but given their failure to act on eucharistic desecration videos I somehow don't hold out much hope of them doing anything about having put filth one mouseclick away from a children's programme ...

But now (updating an hour or two later) I see that In hoc signo vinces has found a "clean" version, so with thanks:

You can actually stop the related videos coming up...

On the You Tube site, where the URL and embed codes are, there is a little button to "customise" the video for embedding. Remove the tick from the box which says allow related videos...

Yes, I thought there must be a way to do that - but I couldn't find it! Thanks for the tip.
