-SAM:

-Mali's back from his uncle's, right?

0:00:440:00:47

HE YAWNS

0:00:470:00:49

Are you sure it's today?

0:00:490:00:51

Yes. Yes.

0:00:510:00:53

Good, cos he's been away for ages.

0:00:530:00:56

It's only been a couple of days.

0:00:560:00:58

But you're sure it's today, right?

0:01:030:01:06

Yes, yes.

0:01:060:01:08

Then, let's go.

0:01:080:01:09

I promised him I'd play football with him. Come on!

0:01:090:01:13

OK, OK, OK, OK.

0:01:130:01:16

Come on, I need to know if he showed his uncle his spaceship toy.

0:01:170:01:22

-Hey, Mali.

-Hey.

0:01:220:01:25

How was your uncle?

0:01:250:01:27

-I guess it was all right.

-Just all right?

0:01:270:01:30

-Is everything OK, tiger?

-Yes.

0:01:300:01:33

So are we still going to play football?

0:01:330:01:35

-I guess so.

-Cool. I've practised my dribbling.

0:01:350:01:39

-KOBI: Is that OK?

-Sure. I'll join you in a minute.

0:01:390:01:42

Come on.

0:01:420:01:43

See you later, Zainab.

0:01:450:01:46

Hey, Mali, check this out.

0:01:500:01:52

So did you show your uncle the spaceship model?

0:01:570:02:01

-I don't think he liked it.

-Why?

0:02:010:02:03

I showed him and told him all about space

0:02:030:02:05

and I wanted to be an astronaut, but he laughed at me.

0:02:050:02:09

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Rewind.

0:02:090:02:12

-He laughed at you?

-Yes.

0:02:120:02:14

And he said only Americans can be astronauts.

0:02:140:02:17

That's not very nice.

0:02:170:02:19

We know that's not true, don't we?

0:02:190:02:21

As far as I am concerned, there's no reason

0:02:210:02:24

-why you can't be anything you want to be, correct?

-Correct.

0:02:240:02:27

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there's lots of competition

0:02:270:02:31

for the chance to fly in a rocket,

0:02:310:02:33

but you will never succeed if you don't try.

0:02:330:02:35

-And uncles don't always know best.

-Well, I don't know much about space,

0:02:350:02:40

not like Grandma Zainab. I do know

0:02:400:02:42

that achieving your goals is often about asking the right questions.

0:02:420:02:46

Asking the right questions?

0:02:460:02:48

-Yes, and talk to the right people.

-Hmm.

0:02:480:02:51

Well, I'm sure when you grow up, you will be amazing,

0:02:510:02:55

but maybe not too soon, because being a kid is still a lot of fun.

0:02:550:03:00

Yeah!

0:03:020:03:03

That definitely was a lot of fun,

0:03:090:03:12

but I think I need to sit down.

0:03:120:03:15

Don't worry, I have loads to do.

0:03:150:03:18

Oh. Anything I can help with?

0:03:180:03:20

Nah, it's OK.

0:03:200:03:21

And once that's done, we might think about bed.

0:03:210:03:25

Ask the right questions...

0:03:280:03:30

..and talk to the right people?

0:03:320:03:34

AMERICAN ACCENT: Never forget, young man,

0:03:410:03:44

you will never succeed if you don't try.

0:03:440:03:47

Time to think about bed.

0:03:500:03:52

Goodnight.

0:04:000:04:01

Sweet dreams, Mali.

0:04:050:04:08

-Don't forget to wake me up in the morning.

-Goodnight.

0:04:080:04:11

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with...

0:04:150:04:21

-P.

-Pirates?

0:04:210:04:23

You can't see pirates.

0:04:230:04:24

Parked cars?

0:04:240:04:26

That's two words.

0:04:260:04:27

-Oh, I give in.

-No!

0:04:270:04:30

Look up there - plane.

0:04:300:04:33

Oh, of course. Can we head back yet?

0:04:330:04:37

I've got to get on with lunch.

0:04:370:04:39

No, wait, just a bit longer.

0:04:390:04:42

For how long?

0:04:420:04:43

Just a little more longer.

0:04:430:04:46

Right, I spy with Zainab's eye,

0:04:460:04:48

-something beginning with...

-D!

0:04:480:04:51

Hey, I thought it was my turn.

0:04:510:04:53

-Doreen.

-Oh, hello, you three.

-Hiya.

0:04:530:04:55

I don't think I have any post for you today.

0:04:550:04:58

-Were you expecting something?

-I'm not sure. Mali?

0:04:580:05:02

No, I just wanted to give you this.

0:05:020:05:06

"To the astronaut in space or the Moon..."

0:05:060:05:09

-But where's the stamp?

-Oh, no!

0:05:090:05:12

It's OK. Oh, don't worry.

0:05:120:05:13

It's lovely writing and good spelling,

0:05:130:05:16

but I don't think we do deliveries to space yet.

0:05:160:05:20

But I wish we did.

0:05:200:05:22

Imagine what it would be like, driving my little van

0:05:220:05:26

all the way to the Moon,

0:05:260:05:28

-knocking on the astronaut's door to deliver parcels or fan mail.

-Hello!

0:05:280:05:32

That would be amazing.

0:05:340:05:37

But why are you writing a letter to space?

0:05:370:05:39

Because Kobi said if you want to be an astronaut,

0:05:390:05:43

you have to ask the right question, and ask the right people.

0:05:430:05:46

Well, that's very good advice.

0:05:460:05:49

Did you try looking on the internet?

0:05:490:05:51

We did. We checked out quite a few "how to be an astronaut" websites.

0:05:510:05:56

But I think we want a bit more inspiration.

0:05:560:05:59

I could chat about the Postal Service all day, but I am

0:05:590:06:02

definitely not the right person

0:06:020:06:04

-to chat to about rockets and space.

-That's OK.

0:06:040:06:07

We should have a think about who we could send this letter to.

0:06:070:06:10

That's a thought.

0:06:100:06:12

There's someone I think might love to chat to you.

0:06:120:06:15

Now, he's never been to space,

0:06:150:06:18

but he knows lots about flying. Come with me. Come on.

0:06:180:06:21

Come on, Zab. Come on.

0:06:210:06:23

-MAN:

-Hang on. I'm coming.

0:06:240:06:26

Everyone knows Alf lives here at No. 7,

0:06:260:06:29

but did you know Alf also used to be a pilot?

0:06:290:06:32

-KIDS:

-A pilot?

-Mm-hm.

-Someone who flies aeroplanes.

0:06:320:06:35

Whoa. Really?

0:06:350:06:36

Oh. Hello, there.

0:06:360:06:38

Hello. Just one letter today, Alf,

0:06:380:06:40

and two young friends who might want to ask you about flying.

0:06:400:06:44

-Really?

-Mm-hm.

0:06:440:06:45

-Do you think you could spare us a few minutes?

-Yeah, sure.

0:06:450:06:49

Why don't you come in?

0:06:490:06:51

So...how can I help?

0:06:520:06:54

I want to be an astronaut.

0:06:540:06:56

But his uncle said that he can't go to space.

0:06:560:07:00

Then, Kobi told me I need to learn how to ask questions.

0:07:000:07:03

Do you want to tell us what you know about flying?

0:07:030:07:06

Well, a long, long time ago,

0:07:060:07:08

when I was a little lad...

0:07:080:07:10

..I told my uncle I wanted to fly like a bird,

0:07:110:07:15

like one of the pigeons on the estate!

0:07:150:07:18

But no-one where we grew up had ever even seen an aeroplane.

0:07:180:07:22

I'd never even ridden in a motorcar.

0:07:220:07:24

Well, people didn't have their own cars back then.

0:07:240:07:28

My uncle only had a rusty bicycle.

0:07:280:07:30

So it wasn't really a surprise when he told me that I'd never fly.

0:07:300:07:35

But you can never know what'll happen in the future.

0:07:350:07:39

Times change,

0:07:390:07:41

people invent things,

0:07:410:07:42

and when I left school,

0:07:420:07:44

I joined the air force as an engineer.

0:07:440:07:47

Like Bella's dad,

0:07:470:07:49

only, instead of cars,

0:07:490:07:50

I was looking after the engines on aeroplanes.

0:07:500:07:53

When I left the air force...

0:07:540:07:56

I was lucky enough to learn how to fly jet planes,

0:07:560:08:00

flying passengers all around the world.

0:08:000:08:03

I tell you, even us pilots were amazed

0:08:030:08:07

when astronauts flew rockets to the moon.

0:08:070:08:10

It was incredible!

0:08:100:08:11

I mean, when we were growing up,

0:08:110:08:13

who would have guessed people would fly to the moon and back?!

0:08:130:08:17

And now everyone thinks we might even get to Mars!

0:08:170:08:20

-Cool.

-And that's a really long way away.

0:08:200:08:23

LAUGHTER

0:08:230:08:24

Do you still fly planes?

0:08:240:08:25

-No, not any more, I'm afraid.

-Ohh...

0:08:250:08:28

But when my flying days were over,

0:08:290:08:31

I was so desperate to tell people about my experiences that...

0:08:310:08:35

-..I was lucky enough to get a job at the museum.

-Doing what?

0:08:350:08:38

Talking!

0:08:380:08:40

About science.

0:08:400:08:42

-I'll show you, if you like.

-Yeah!

-Yes!

0:08:420:08:45

I'm retired, now, of course, but...

0:08:450:08:47

I still love to go there once in a while.

0:08:470:08:50

# No matter if you're young or old

0:08:520:08:55

# And if you want to learn to fly

0:08:560:08:59

# You've got to take a step if truth be told

0:08:590:09:03

# You're never going to reach the sky...

0:09:030:09:06

# Unless you try!

0:09:060:09:09

# Don't be afraid to make mistakes

0:09:150:09:19

# We only learn by reaching high

0:09:190:09:22

# We all start out with lots to learn

0:09:230:09:25

# But nothing's going to stop your dreams

0:09:250:09:28

-# We can only try

-Don't look down, look up!

0:09:280:09:32

-# We can only try!

-Don't look down, look up!

0:09:320:09:36

-# We can reach the sky!

-First days, new days

0:09:360:09:39

# Are the very best days

0:09:390:09:41

# New things to discover New people to meet

0:09:410:09:44

# Don't stress, breathe deep

0:09:440:09:46

# Take it in your stride

0:09:460:09:48

# Look before you take it It will be all right! #

0:09:480:09:51

And we saw rockets, and planes,

0:09:530:09:55

and spaceships,

0:09:550:09:57

-and all sorts of machines.

-Cool!

0:09:570:09:59

-Alf knows so much about all the amazing stuff.

-I bet!

0:09:590:10:03

You know, I've worked on this estate for years

0:10:030:10:06

and it never surprises me there's still so much new stuff to learn!

0:10:060:10:10

Like... I never knew Alf used to fly!

0:10:100:10:12

I'd like to be a pilot.

0:10:120:10:14

Great.

0:10:150:10:16

But I wouldn't mind being a nurse first.

0:10:160:10:19

A nurse? Like your mum?

0:10:190:10:21

Or maybe a post lady.

0:10:210:10:23

-Like Doreen.

-Anything else?

0:10:230:10:25

Maybe I could be a caretaker,

0:10:250:10:28

looking after everyone, like you. Or...

0:10:280:10:30

..Mali and I could run a cafe, like Flo and Frank.

0:10:320:10:35

Well, whatever you decide to do,

0:10:350:10:37

I'm sure you'll be great!

0:10:370:10:39

So long as I have lots of fun.

0:10:400:10:42

Ah-ah!

0:10:420:10:43

Well, talking about fun, are we ready?

0:10:430:10:46

Yes, I think.

0:10:460:10:48

"Wait for me, wait for me!"

0:10:530:10:55

"OK, I'm coming."

0:10:550:10:57

SPACEY BOUNCES

0:10:570:10:59

AIRLOCK HISSES

0:11:010:11:03

"Thank you." "You're welcome."

0:11:030:11:05

And the finishing touch...!

0:11:060:11:08

Blast off!

0:11:090:11:11

ZOOMING

0:11:110:11:12

Glad to see you playing with that toy again.

0:11:120:11:14

-I thought you lost interest in it.

-No way! It's the best ever,

0:11:140:11:18

just like the spaceship I'll fly one day.

0:11:180:11:20

-Just got to keep asking the right questions, right?

-Yes!

0:11:200:11:24

KNOCKING

0:11:240:11:25

Mali? Are you ready?

0:11:250:11:27

For what?

0:11:270:11:28

We've got a brilliant new game.

0:11:280:11:30

Come on and see!

0:11:300:11:32

Can I go?

0:11:320:11:33

Sure!

0:11:330:11:35

I'm coming!

0:11:350:11:37

Now, close your eyes.

0:11:370:11:38

What's going on?

0:11:390:11:41

KOBI CHUCKLES

0:11:410:11:42

I hope it's space-tastic!

0:11:420:11:44

Commander Mali, are you ready to take us into space now?

0:11:470:11:50

Yes.

0:11:500:11:52

Then open your eyes.

0:11:520:11:54

HE GASPS

0:11:550:11:56

Kobi, this is amazing!

0:11:560:11:58

The Apple Tree House space mission is ready to go

0:11:580:12:01

where no Mali has ever been before!

0:12:010:12:05

We have liftoff!

0:12:050:12:07

0:12:420:12:45

-Amazing!

-Wow!

0:12:470:12:49

Well, we do what we can!

0:12:490:12:51

That was so much fun!

0:12:510:12:53

-Give us a high-five!

-High-five!

0:12:540:12:56

Sam, thanks for making that space adventure. It was amazing!

0:12:560:13:00

Bet you didn't think the moon was so close to your home!

0:13:000:13:04

THEY LAUGH

0:13:040:13:06

How did you build such a brilliant spaceship?

0:13:080:13:11

Well, as Dad said,

0:13:110:13:12

you'll never succeed if you don't try.

0:13:120:13:14

You're going to be a great astronaut one day.

0:13:140:13:17

-Yeah!

-THEY LAUGH

0:13:170:13:20

You're a good friend, Mali.

0:13:200:13:22

And you're a great friend, Sam.

0:13:220:13:24

It's no secret that Mali wants to become an astronaut, but when a relative suggests that he will never go to space he becomes a bit sad. However, his friends are about to teach Mali that he can be anything he wants to be.
