A big rock, spinning in space.
Not just any rock.
It's our rock, the planet Earth,
where we live.
And if we were to travel deep into space,
we might find other rocks spinning around.
Space is full of amazing things,
like comets and moons and meteors
and, oh, yes, other planets, just like this.

Ah, here's Major and Small Clanger in the music boat,
fishing for things in the sky.
Woo. Dee-doo, dee-do.
Will you look at that! It's an old lamp.
Oo, dee-do doo.
Oo. Doo-doo-doo doo-doo.
Yes, what a successful morning's fishing.
Do doo-oo. Doo-doo doo, doo, dee doo-dee-doo.
Successful for Major, but Small didn't catch a thing.
Doo doo-doo doo, dee doo-doo-doo.
Sometimes you don't catch anything when you fish.
Small will have to try again soon.
Look, look! A streak of light.
Oo. Doo. Wee-oo.
Poor Small. He didn't catch anything with his fishing rod
and he didn't see the streaking light in the sky either.
Small missed it again.
Major thinks Small needs to come home and have some soup
to cheer him up.
But Small is still disappointed.
Doo-dee-dee-oo? Doo-dee, doo-doo dee-oo.
Oo. Doo-doo. Doo-doo. Doo, doo-dee doo.
It looks like Tiny saw the light in the sky too.
-Doo-doo doo-doo dee-oo?
-Oo. Doo-doo, dee dee-oo.
It seems that Small is the only one who didn't see it.
-Doo dee-dee dee-oo.
Everyone is talking about the light in the sky...
Doo doo doo-doo, doo doo doo-dee-doo.
Granny thinks they saw a meteor, a big, burning rock,
hot and fiery, that shoots through space very quickly,
like a firework.
Doo doo, doo-doo dee dee-oo.
He'd rather leave the table
than hear anything more about what he missed today.
Dee doo dee doo-doo. Doo dee doo-doo dee-oo.
Tiny is right.
It is a shame Small didn't see the meteor,
but they can't just make one appear.
Woo-woo. Woo, woo-woo, woo, woo-woo-woo.
Ah, Major agrees.
He doesn't want Small to feel left out on such a special experience
and he's going to do something about it.
..and waits as patiently as a little Clanger can.
He can see a Sky Moo.
He can see a cloud.
But he doesn't see a meteor.

and this is what he was making.
It looks rather odd.
Doo, dee-doo doo.
Doo-doo. Doo doo dee-doo.
What a very curious invention.
I wonder what it does.
Well, we'll soon find out.
-Doo, dee, doo-doo.
Mother and Granny Clanger have made it just in time.
Doo doo doo-dee doo?
Woo. Doo dee doo, doo-doo-doo.
Major tells them it's his Meteor Machine.
He's going to fly it across the sky just for Small
so he can see just what a meteor looks like.

All the Clangers are looking forward to Major's meteor show.
So, Small finally got his very own meteor.
Oh, dear. Major has a problem with the music boat.
-Look, the joystick is broken.
Whoops-a-daisy, he's lost control.
ALL: Wee-oo-oo. Wee-oo-oo.
I think Major's Meteor Machine is in a bit of trouble.
Hang on, Major.
Oh, he's back on the ground.
Doo-doo doo. Oo. Oo.
Phew. That's a relief.
Major is OK.
Doo-doo doo, dee doo-doo-doo.
Major is just sorry he didn't find Small his very own meteor.
Doo-dee-doo-doo. Dee-doo, doo-doo dee-doo.
But Small is very happy.
Major made him feel very special.
Wee-woo! Wee! Wee woo-woo.
Ha-ha! Small has finally seen a real meteor.
And he saw it first.
Oh, and another one.
Whoa! What a way to end the day.
Woo! Woo! Woo!
Small got to see his meteor.
All the Clangers got to see the greatest show in space.
Small is really upset when, out fishing in the music boat with Major Clanger, he not only fails to catch anything but also misses seeing the two spectacular lights that streak across the sky - meteors, as Granny later tells him. Major Clanger determines to cheer Small up by inventing a 'meteor machine'.
