Hacker Time is not filmed in front of a live studio audience.

0:00:020:00:05

Oh, Hacker. You're lively this morning.

0:00:070:00:09

Are your worms playing you up again?

0:00:090:00:11

How dare you, Derek! I do not have worms!

0:00:110:00:15

-If you must know, I'm expecting a very important delivery.

-Oh!

0:00:150:00:19

-Is it another mildly amusing household poster?

-No.

0:00:190:00:24

That came yesterday.

0:00:240:00:25

LAUGHTER

0:00:250:00:27

That will never not be funny!

0:00:270:00:29

So what are you waiting for?

0:00:300:00:33

My worm tablets!

0:00:330:00:34

Oh, they really are playing up again.

0:00:340:00:37

HACKER WHIMPERS DOORBELL RINGS

0:00:370:00:39

Ooh, that'll be t'postman.

0:00:390:00:41

I can't open it. It's jammed.

0:00:430:00:45

Oh, well, let me try.

0:00:450:00:47

DEREK GRUNTS

0:00:470:00:49

It's no use. I can't do it either.

0:00:500:00:54

I know! Why don't we try opening it from the other side?

0:00:540:00:59

Ooh, brilliant idea! Come on.

0:00:590:01:01

FOOTSTEPS PATTER

0:01:030:01:05

BANGS ON DOOR

0:01:060:01:08

No, it's jammed from this side too.

0:01:080:01:11

We'd better go back in, then.

0:01:110:01:12

Come on, Derek. Get inside.

0:01:130:01:15

And you, Mr Postman.

0:01:150:01:18

Oh, and shut the door, will you?

0:01:180:01:20

Oh, yeah, shut the door.

0:01:200:01:22

DEREK GRUNTS

0:01:240:01:26

This is all very odd. I still can't open the door,

0:01:260:01:29

there's no-one outside and now, there's strange man in the house.

0:01:290:01:33

Keep calm and run the titles.

0:01:330:01:35

# You gotta watch this

0:01:400:01:42

# You gotta watch this

0:01:440:01:45

# You gotta watch this

0:01:470:01:48

# My, my, my, my programme hits you so hard

0:01:500:01:54

# Makes me say, "Oh, my word!"

0:01:540:01:55

# Thank you for watching me

0:01:550:01:57

# It's telly, but not what you normally see

0:01:570:01:59

# It feels good, there's outtakes too

0:01:590:02:01

# Comedy, guests and clips, it's true

0:02:010:02:03

# So sit back - don't move too much

0:02:030:02:05

# This is the show - ah! - You can't touch

0:02:050:02:07

# Stop! Hacker Time. #

0:02:070:02:09

Thank you.

0:02:090:02:11

Standby, everyone. We're on-air in five...

0:02:110:02:15

four,

0:02:150:02:16

three... COUGH

0:02:160:02:18

..two,

0:02:180:02:19

one...

0:02:190:02:21

-Cue Larry!

-DRUM ROLL

0:02:210:02:23

Ladies and gentlemen, he's the host with the most...

0:02:230:02:25

disgusting odour in the world -

0:02:250:02:28

it's Hacker D Dog!

0:02:280:02:31

You all right, cockers?

0:02:310:02:32

Today's show is all about space,

0:02:320:02:35

starting with the space in here.

0:02:350:02:37

I'm thinking terracotta walls and maybe a breakfast bar in the corner.

0:02:370:02:41

The show isn't about that sort of space, Hacker.

0:02:410:02:44

It's about outer space.

0:02:440:02:46

But I'm not outer space.

0:02:460:02:47

There is room for a chaise lounge in here.

0:02:470:02:49

Oh, he's still not getting it!

0:02:490:02:51

If only we had a space scientist to explain the concept to him.

0:02:510:02:54

Don't worry, it's being sorted.

0:02:540:02:56

Eh. It's a good night for it, innit? Good day for it...

0:02:580:03:00

Hello, my name is Maggie Aderin-Pocock and I'm here to film

0:03:000:03:04

an important, really serious documentary all about space.

0:03:040:03:07

Oh, step this way, please.

0:03:070:03:08

Yes, we need to do a photograph for your ID pass.

0:03:080:03:11

-A photograph? Oh, OK...

-Get in the booth.

0:03:110:03:13

Come on now, shut those curtains. Shut those curtains now!

0:03:130:03:16

-OK, Thank you, thank you.

-Shut the doors, perfick.

0:03:160:03:18

ELEVATOR PINGS

0:03:180:03:19

Ah...

0:03:190:03:20

-BUZZ

-Down!

0:03:200:03:22

HE CHUCKLES

0:03:220:03:23

-ALARM BLARES

-Ooh!

0:03:230:03:25

SHE SCREAMS

0:03:250:03:27

-Come on...

-HACKER WHISTLES

0:03:280:03:31

Let me out!

0:03:310:03:32

Please welcome...from Stargazing and The Sky At Night,

0:03:320:03:35

it's Maggie Aderin-Pocock!

0:03:350:03:38

Wahey, look who it is! By jingo!

0:03:390:03:42

Maggie, you all right, cocker? Welcome to Hacker Time!

0:03:420:03:47

-Hacker Time?

-Yes.

-I thought... This is meant to be The Sky At Night.

0:03:470:03:50

-Oh, no.

-I've got to go. I must've come to the wrong studio.

0:03:500:03:52

No, no, no. You can't go, Maggie. Please don't go, stay!

0:03:520:03:55

Stay with me for I've got some fantastic,

0:03:550:03:57

intelligent questions about space to ask you.

0:03:570:04:00

-About space?

-Space, yeah.

-Oh, great. Yeah, lovely.

0:04:000:04:02

-You love that, don't you?

-I do.

-Here's the first question.

0:04:020:04:05

Do you think I should move that desk to make room for a coal effect fire?

0:04:050:04:09

Oh, he's getting the universe mixed up with interior design again.

0:04:090:04:13

Don't worry, Maggie's fact file will explain everything. Hmm...

0:04:130:04:16

BEEP

0:04:160:04:18

Maggie Aderin-Pocock is a space scientist

0:04:180:04:21

who likes hanging around by rock formations.

0:04:210:04:23

With her out-of-this-world knowledge,

0:04:230:04:25

she presents stargazing programmes

0:04:250:04:27

The Sky At Night and Stargazing Live.

0:04:270:04:30

In her spare time, she likes to play the popular and well-known game,

0:04:300:04:33

Hold The Satsuma Above A Colander.

0:04:330:04:36

When she's not doing that,

0:04:360:04:37

she likes to sit in her spaceship-themed living quarters.

0:04:370:04:40

And that is all you need to know about Maggie Aderin-Pocock.

0:04:400:04:44

Very interesting, cocker.

0:04:450:04:47

But I still don't understand what space is - mainly because of this -

0:04:470:04:51

the massive space between me ears,

0:04:510:04:53

which I also don't understand.

0:04:530:04:56

HACKER LAUGHS

0:04:560:04:57

-Do you like it?

-Is that your brain?

0:04:570:04:59

Yeah, do you want to touch it?

0:04:590:05:01

I think that explains a lot.

0:05:010:05:03

It explains more than you'll ever know, me old cocker.

0:05:030:05:05

But nil ye fret, we've loads more space for jokes like that.

0:05:050:05:09

Larry, tell us what's coming up -

0:05:090:05:11

even though I won't understand a word of it.

0:05:110:05:14

Mwah!

0:05:140:05:15

Get ready, because you're about to enter a wormhole...of comedy.

0:05:150:05:20

Coming up - Maggie's ride home is out of this world...

0:05:220:05:25

Ta-da!

0:05:250:05:26

Super-sleuth Miss Marbles has trouble with wind...

0:05:260:05:28

Thwrrp!

0:05:280:05:29

..instruments and the catering crew are dishing up trouble.

0:05:290:05:32

Don't look so shocked, guys - your food's terrible!

0:05:320:05:35

Right, Margaret.

0:05:370:05:39

Are you ready to answer a series of important,

0:05:390:05:41

-highbrow questions all about the universe?

-I am.

0:05:410:05:44

Question one, can you explain the general theory of relativity...

0:05:440:05:48

-Einstein came up with this idea...

-I didn't finish the question!

0:05:480:05:51

I'm so sorry!

0:05:510:05:53

Can you explain the general theory of relativity in less than one word?

0:05:530:05:57

-Yes.

-Oh, wrong!

0:05:570:05:58

I said, "In less than one word"!

0:05:580:06:00

And you call yourself a scientist?

0:06:000:06:02

You are rubbish, Margaret.

0:06:020:06:05

It's a proven scientific fact that the moon is made out of cheese,

0:06:050:06:09

but what cheese is it made from?

0:06:090:06:11

I hate to tell you, but the moon isn't made out of cheese. It's...

0:06:110:06:14

Is the moon is made of Red Leicester?

0:06:140:06:17

-No.

-Is the moon made of Gouda?

0:06:170:06:21

-No.

-Is the moon made of a supermarket's own-brand low-fat

0:06:210:06:26

cheddar-flavoured slices?

0:06:260:06:28

This could take a long time,

0:06:280:06:29

if we're going to go through all the cheeses!

0:06:290:06:31

-Margaret?

-Yes?

0:06:310:06:33

What's a parallel universe?

0:06:330:06:35

Ooh, a parallel universe is a really interesting concept,

0:06:350:06:38

because we think we've got our own universe,

0:06:380:06:40

but for every decision you make,

0:06:400:06:41

we could actually have a parallel universe...

0:06:410:06:43

Are you saying there could be a version of Hacker Time out there

0:06:430:06:46

-that's the exact opposite of this one?

-Definitely.

0:06:460:06:49

-HACKER SQUEALS

-I wonder what that would look like?

0:06:490:06:52

Maggie, is the cheese made of moon?

0:06:520:06:56

I don't know, but I really am enjoying this whole experience.

0:06:560:07:00

Wow! It really is the exact opposite.

0:07:000:07:04

Moving on -

0:07:040:07:05

is time travel possible?

0:07:050:07:08

Theoretically, we can predict it's possible, through the mathematics.

0:07:080:07:11

But actually, looking at it, it causes all sorts of paradoxes,

0:07:110:07:14

so we think it probably isn't.

0:07:140:07:15

Well, I've actually proved that THYME travel is possible. Look!

0:07:150:07:19

-# Da-dah-dah-dah-dah! #

-Oh, dear.

-TOOT TOOT

0:07:190:07:22

It's a sprig of thyme, travelling on a train.

0:07:220:07:25

It's much more effective than that parsley monorail I built last year.

0:07:250:07:28

That's not quite what I was expecting.

0:07:280:07:31

I know it wasn't, Margaret. That's the beauty of this show.

0:07:310:07:35

Actually, that sprig of thyme did travel back in time.

0:07:350:07:39

It brought back this bunch of rosemary

0:07:390:07:41

from the early Jurassic period.

0:07:410:07:42

Have a sniff - sniff my thyme!

0:07:420:07:44

Harry, leave that rosemary alone!

0:07:440:07:46

I'm having it in a wheel of Camembert later -

0:07:460:07:49

or as I like to call it - the moon.

0:07:490:07:51

MAGGIE LAUGHS

0:07:510:07:53

-Next question, Margaret.

-OK.

0:07:530:07:56

What is the sun?

0:07:560:07:58

Now, that's a very interesting question,

0:07:580:08:00

because the sun is actually a star,

0:08:000:08:01

like we see all the other stars in the night sky.

0:08:010:08:04

I had a feeling the sun was a star, yeah.

0:08:040:08:06

She certainly behaved like one when I worked with her.

0:08:060:08:10

Ugh. This latte is cold.

0:08:100:08:12

-Well, you heat it up. You're the sun.

-Oh...

0:08:120:08:15

Ah, the sun. I never WARMED to her.

0:08:170:08:19

SUDDEN DRUMBEAT

0:08:190:08:21

LAUGHTER

0:08:210:08:24

-It wasn't that funny.

-I know.

0:08:240:08:26

I was still laughing at this poster from earlier on in the episode.

0:08:260:08:30

Look at it.

0:08:300:08:31

HE CHUCKLES

0:08:310:08:33

I've got some questions about the planets. Ahem.

0:08:330:08:36

Why has Jupiter got a big red spot?

0:08:360:08:39

Did he forget to exfoliate?

0:08:390:08:41

The red spot on Jupiter is a huge weather system

0:08:420:08:45

and it's quite interesting,

0:08:450:08:46

cos you could fit the whole of planet Earth into that red spot.

0:08:460:08:49

Funny that, cos I thought you just said it was interesting.

0:08:490:08:51

Right, I've got another question. Why has Saturn got a ring?

0:08:510:08:55

Did she get married to Neptune?

0:08:550:08:57

Married to Neptune...

0:08:590:09:00

The rings of Saturn are quite fascinating,

0:09:000:09:02

cos they're made out of lumps of ice about the size of my fist.

0:09:020:09:05

Why is Mars bright red?

0:09:050:09:06

Is it angry because Saturn rejected his marriage proposal?

0:09:060:09:10

Was he livid?

0:09:100:09:11

Um...

0:09:120:09:13

Mars is red because it's made of iron oxide, which is rust, and so...

0:09:130:09:17

You're looking bored again!

0:09:170:09:19

-Hacker, this is great stuff!

-It is good stuff, this.

-It is, it is!

0:09:220:09:25

Moving on, Margaret, onto something slightly less boring

0:09:250:09:28

than what you've just been going on about...

0:09:280:09:30

You astronomers are always harping on about the naked eye, aren't you?

0:09:300:09:33

-We are.

-But what is the naked eye?

0:09:330:09:36

Well, imagine you don't have a telescope,

0:09:360:09:39

you don't have any binoculars. It's just your eyes.

0:09:390:09:42

That means my eyes are naked right now?!

0:09:420:09:44

Oh, the shame! Look away, Margaret!

0:09:440:09:47

-It's OK!

-Look away while I dress my beady optical receptors.

0:09:470:09:51

Hacker?

0:09:520:09:53

Much better, but I'll have to end the interview here,

0:09:530:09:56

cos we've run out of THYME.

0:09:560:09:57

However, we do have a busload of chives.

0:09:570:10:01

That'll go lovely with my moon and crackers.

0:10:010:10:04

Larry, cut to something else, wherever you are.

0:10:040:10:06

DRUM ROLL

0:10:060:10:07

Get your magnifying glasses at the ready -

0:10:070:10:09

it's time for the Ms Marbles Mysteries.

0:10:090:10:12

Hello. Who's this? I don't know who that is.

0:10:170:10:19

HE WHISTLES CHEERILY

0:10:250:10:27

How do?

0:10:290:10:31

You all right, yeah? Aggh!

0:10:310:10:33

CRASH

0:10:330:10:35

Oh, Ms Marbles - you've barely touched your corn, so you haven't.

0:10:500:10:54

Whatever's wrong?

0:10:540:10:56

Oh, Constable Haywain -

0:10:560:10:58

there's a mystery I just can't solve.

0:10:580:11:01

DRAMATIC INCIDENTAL MUSIC PLAYS

0:11:010:11:05

I need to find out who keeps playing that dreadful incidental music.

0:11:050:11:09

-Can't say I've noticed.

-Oh, it's plaguing my life.

0:11:090:11:13

Every time I say something funny, I hear the cymbals...

0:11:130:11:16

-Bottom!

-CYMBALS CRASH

0:11:160:11:18

..every time I do something sad, I hear a violin...

0:11:260:11:29

..and every time I eat cabbage, I hear a trumpet.

0:11:290:11:33

Thwrrp!

0:11:330:11:34

That wasn't a trumpet.

0:11:340:11:35

I know. It was my bottom!

And so was that.

0:11:430:11:45

It's not pleasant.

0:11:450:11:46

Where could this phantom musician be hiding, so to speak?

0:11:510:11:54

-DRAMATIC MUSIC

-Aha! I think I found the culprit.

0:11:540:11:57

Reverend Derek McGee, where did you get that cello?

0:11:570:12:01

No, this isn't a cello.

0:12:010:12:03

It's my lunchbox. Ho-ho!

0:12:030:12:06

Oh, mother always cuts my sandwiches into cello shapes.

0:12:060:12:09

GUITAR THRUMS

0:12:090:12:12

But did I hear a guitar inside the chemist's?

'Ere, where's your guitar?

0:12:200:12:22

That wasn't a guitar, it was CATARRH.

0:12:220:12:25

The whole village has got it.

That wasn't a drum, it was my shop display falling over.

0:12:440:12:49

But while you're here, you could help me pick up this cornet...

0:12:490:12:52

TRUMPET BLARES

0:12:520:12:54

..this ice cream cornet.

0:12:540:12:57

-Oh, and this tuba...

-CONSTABLE GASPS

0:12:570:13:00

This TUBA toothpaste.

0:13:000:13:02

Finally, I'm going to need assistance with this ukelele...

0:13:030:13:07

..this tin of Ukelele brand corned beef.

0:13:090:13:12

That's not even a thing.

0:13:130:13:14

It is. Look.

0:13:140:13:16

Agh! It looks like this is one mystery I'll never solve.

0:13:190:13:23

DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS

0:13:230:13:25

That music... Ms Marbles, it's coming from your pocket, so it is.

0:13:260:13:30

Ugh. You're not going to believe this.

0:13:300:13:32

It was my ringtone all along.

0:13:320:13:34

Thwrrp!

0:13:340:13:36

And that was my bottom...

0:13:360:13:37

DESCENDING NOTES PLAY

0:13:370:13:39

..but that wasn't.

0:13:390:13:41

No. That was mine.

0:13:410:13:43

Why do you even have a mobile phone, Ms Marbles?

0:13:440:13:47

They haven't even been invented yet.

0:13:470:13:49

Oh, don't ask me. I don't write this rubbish.

0:13:490:13:52

That's quite enough of that.

0:13:520:13:54

BLEATING

0:13:540:13:56

What in a month of Sundays was that?

0:13:560:13:58

Oh, Derek, it's so funny, have you seen it?

0:13:580:14:02

It's a video of a screaming goat.

0:14:020:14:05

-It's going viral on YouBend, have a watch.

-Oh, yes.

0:14:050:14:08

GOAT BLEATS

0:14:080:14:12

Will you stop all that screaming, I'm trying to graze here.

0:14:150:14:20

-Argh!

-That's not how you do it, it's more like "baa-aa-aa!"

0:14:230:14:27

Derek, I wasn't doing an impression, I was actually screaming.

0:14:270:14:32

-But why are you actually screaming?

-I'm screaming because, look. Argh!

0:14:320:14:39

Oh, I've forgotten to put my trousers on...again.

0:14:390:14:43

What am I like?! Ooh-hoo!

0:14:430:14:47

Maggie, there's something I don't understand.

0:14:470:14:49

Why did Pluto used to be a planet, but now it's not a planet?

0:14:490:14:54

Don't be upset, Hacker, Pluto's still there.

0:14:540:14:56

The thing is, Pluto is really small, it's actually smaller than

0:14:560:14:59

our moon and because it's so small, we now call it a dwarf planet.

0:14:590:15:03

But it's still there.

0:15:030:15:05

Don't you feel sorry for Pluto? It must feel so left out

0:15:050:15:08

and I bet all the other planets laugh at it.

0:15:080:15:11

Oh, no, I'm sure that's not true.

0:15:110:15:14

Right, there's only one way to solve this,

0:15:140:15:16

I must show my solidarity for Pluto by the medium of song.

0:15:160:15:22

Hit it!

0:15:220:15:23

# Saturn is too gassy and Mercury's too hot

0:15:270:15:31

# Mars is far too red just like Jupiter's big spot

0:15:310:15:34

# Neptune and Uranus are both easily forgot

0:15:340:15:37

# Earth is really boring I've already seen the lot

0:15:370:15:40

# There is a tiny planet where I would like to reside

0:15:400:15:43

# It has an atmosphere made of carbon monoxide

0:15:430:15:47

# An axial tilt that makes it rotate on its side

0:15:470:15:50

# I love it oh so much I want to take it for my bride

0:15:500:15:53

# It's Pluto. #

0:15:530:15:56

Three, two, one, blast off.

0:15:560:15:59

# I really want to live there it would be so much fun

0:15:590:16:02

# It's the tenth most massive body that is orbiting the sun

0:16:020:16:05

# On its nitrogen ice surface I'd frolic and run

0:16:050:16:08

# I'd be so very happy I'd even bring my mum

0:16:080:16:12

# But unfortunately

0:16:120:16:17

# They don't have TV so I'd be

0:16:170:16:23

# Out of a job

0:16:230:16:26

# Job, job

0:16:270:16:30

# Job

0:16:300:16:31

# Gainful employment

0:16:310:16:37

# Skint. #

0:16:370:16:38

So there you have it. What a disgraceful non-planet it is.

0:16:400:16:42

Look at it there bobbing about. Useless, dirty little Pluto.

0:16:420:16:46

Never liked it. Never trusted the way it moves, Margaret.

0:16:460:16:48

-But I don't understand - your beautiful song.

-Never mind the song.

0:16:480:16:52

Just another one of my trademark whimsical U-turns there.

0:16:520:16:55

Larry, tell us what's coming up before I change my mind.

0:16:550:16:58

Carry on, you.

0:16:580:17:00

Certainly, Hacker. This show is so big, it's got its own orbit.

0:17:000:17:05

Coming up - we've got login lols at Flemsbury High,

0:17:060:17:11

there's cosmic capers on another planet and flushed with success,

0:17:110:17:17

Maggie takes to the throne in the quiz finale.

0:17:170:17:20

Margaret, I've got a question about the universe to ask -

0:17:220:17:26

something that every person on Earth wants to know,

0:17:260:17:29

something that could help us understand the meaning of life.

0:17:290:17:34

-My question is...

-BELL RINGS

0:17:340:17:36

Ooh, lunch.

0:17:360:17:38

Yummy.

0:17:400:17:43

Hello?

0:17:430:17:45

Like I say, that will never not be funny.

0:17:470:17:50

-Wilfred, this is no laughing matter.

-You're telling me.

0:17:500:17:54

I don't know how this show got a fifth series.

0:17:540:17:56

I'm not talking about the show.

0:17:560:17:59

We're expecting a visit from...

0:17:590:18:01

-..the health inspector.

-Oh!

0:18:020:18:04

We need to make sure everything is hygienic

0:18:070:18:10

and we don't have much time.

0:18:100:18:12

Don't worry, here's some now. Thyme.

0:18:120:18:16

Now, I need to have a look around.

0:18:160:18:18

Has this pork chop been there all day?

0:18:190:18:22

Yes, but the flies don't seem to mind.

0:18:220:18:24

-Is that pea soup at the correct temperature?

-What pea soup? At-choo!

0:18:250:18:31

Oh, Wilf, why aren't you wearing a hairnet?

0:18:310:18:34

I lost it, but don't fret...

0:18:340:18:37

Argh!

0:18:380:18:39

I'll use this instead, I was dredging the canal with it earlier.

0:18:390:18:43

INSPECTOR CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:18:430:18:45

Mr Inspector, what can I get you?

0:18:450:18:48

Well, that pork chop looks rancid, the soup is clearly snot

0:18:480:18:53

and are those fish guts hanging out of your hairnet?

0:18:530:18:56

-I don't want to talk about that.

-So, what's your verdict?

0:18:560:19:00

Well, your food is an absolute health hazard,

0:19:000:19:04

I should close you down immediately.

0:19:040:19:06

Oh.

0:19:060:19:08

However, this keep calm poster is the most hilarious thing

0:19:080:19:11

I think I've ever seen.

0:19:110:19:14

-I'm giving you ten out of ten.

-Hooray!

0:19:140:19:18

-Well done, love.

-Now, can I have some of that delicious-looking soup?

0:19:180:19:23

Of course. I'll fire up my nose. At-choo!

0:19:230:19:28

Oh.

0:19:300:19:32

And now Hacker Time proudly presents, Star Bores.

0:19:330:19:38

It's day one of our mission to Mars. Hacker, bring me the captain's log.

0:19:550:20:00

Will do.

0:20:000:20:01

-No, I mean the other type of log.

-Oh, all right.

0:20:030:20:06

Thwrrp! Thwrrp! Thwrrp!

0:20:060:20:09

-That stinks.

-Yeah, it is a tad fruity, I'll let a bit of air in.

0:20:090:20:14

No, Hacker, don't open that door. There's a terrible vacuum out there.

0:20:140:20:18

You're telling me. He's angry because he's got to clean up my log!

0:20:180:20:22

-Yes.

-I don't understand it.

0:20:230:20:25

We should be experiencing zero gravity right now.

0:20:250:20:28

We are, this zero's lost all sense of gravity.

0:20:280:20:31

Let's hope my number two doesn't float up... Oh, it is, look.

0:20:310:20:35

And so is me log.

0:20:350:20:37

Enough. Let's turn on the video screen.

0:20:390:20:41

This is ground control with a very important message...

0:20:430:20:47

HE BREAKS UP

0:20:470:20:50

We can't understand what you're saying.

0:20:500:20:53

Oh, don't worry, I'll pop round.

0:20:530:20:56

Ooh. The important message is...

0:20:560:21:00

HE BREAKS UP

0:21:000:21:03

Bye.

0:21:030:21:05

Oh no, the computer says we will experience a meteor shower

0:21:050:21:09

-at any moment.

-I already am.

0:21:090:21:11

We must be in a hard water area, look at all the meteors.

0:21:110:21:15

Stop mucking around, I think there's a serious problem with this rocket.

0:21:150:21:19

There is...it could do with more French dressing.

0:21:190:21:23

Be serious. The atmosphere in here is running low.

0:21:230:21:26

Never you fret, Margaret, I'll fix that immediately.

0:21:260:21:29

# Oh, what an atmosphere

0:21:290:21:31

# I love a party with a happy atmosphere... #

0:21:310:21:35

-Stop the music.

-All right, get out, stop the music, stop the fun.

0:21:350:21:38

-Hacker, we're never going to get to Mars now.

-Yes, we are.

0:21:380:21:41

-In fact, we're already there. Look.

-Hello, son.

-My ma's. Hello, Ma.

0:21:410:21:49

-Do you get it?

-I thought we were going to the planet Mars.

0:21:490:21:53

Don't be daft. Why would we be visiting my mum on the planet Mars.

0:21:530:21:57

Everyone knows she lives on Venus.

0:21:570:22:00

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:22:000:22:05

And now, it's the moment you haven't been waiting for,

0:22:050:22:09

it's the Quarter Past Four O'Clock Club.

0:22:090:22:11

BELL RINGS

0:22:110:22:13

-Hey, Josh, how's your download going?

-I did one just after lunch.

0:22:150:22:19

That meat and potato pie wreaked havoc...

0:22:190:22:20

-No, Josh, I meant the computer.

-Oh, terrible.

0:22:200:22:24

-RAPS:

-I cannot work The computer's crashed

0:22:260:22:27

The picture's frozen The screen is smashed

0:22:270:22:29

Maybe it's a virus Maybe it's a worm

0:22:290:22:32

Call IT, me hard drive's got a germ.

0:22:320:22:34

Josh, my friend, all hope's not gone

# This technology It's distressing me

0:22:430:22:46

# I try and try But what's this Wi-Fi?

0:22:460:22:52

# The computer is the future

0:22:520:22:55

# Josh, impress your mind Don't get left behind

0:22:550:22:59

It'll never work, you can bet

0:22:590:23:01

I won't catch on to the internet

0:23:010:23:03

Who's Dot Com, what does she do?

0:23:030:23:05

And why does she always follow WWW?

0:23:050:23:07

Come back, Josh Calm down, let me take a look

0:23:070:23:10

It's all here in the instruction book

0:23:100:23:11

It's not worth it I'm packing it in

0:23:110:23:13

Josh, you buffoon It's not plugged in.

0:23:130:23:16

BELL RINGS

0:23:190:23:20

Ladies and gentlemen, hold on to your hats as we come to the

0:23:220:23:25

gripping climax of today's show - the quiz that we like to call...

0:23:250:23:31

Sit on the lav-lav and answer some questions.

0:23:310:23:34

Maggie, the rules of this game are bog standard. It's funny, that.

0:23:400:23:44

All you have to do is...

0:23:440:23:45

TOILET FLUSHES

0:23:490:23:52

Sit on the lav-lav and answer some questions.

0:23:520:23:54

-How does it feel being sat upon my throne?

-Very comfortable, thank you.

0:23:540:23:59

-The time will end when you hear this sound...

-Keep calm, don't carry on.

0:23:590:24:03

Start the clock. Name a planet.

0:24:030:24:06

Mars.

0:24:060:24:07

Incorrect, it was Jupiter.

0:24:070:24:09

Herman has disguised this prop as an object from outer space,

0:24:090:24:13

but what's that lamb-covered paddle to you?

0:24:130:24:16

Um, um...

0:24:160:24:18

-A paddle?

-No! It's a meaty oar, meteor. Do you get it?

-Yeah.

0:24:190:24:23

-I get it.

-Go away, Herman, you're not welcome round here.

0:24:230:24:27

Please say hello to my old friend and confidante, Acky G!

0:24:270:24:32

It's Accordion George, Acky Gee. Yes, it's me old chum, Acky Gee.

0:24:320:24:38

He is going to play a fantastic,

0:24:380:24:41

famous tune on his big old lovely acc.

0:24:410:24:43

But what is he playing? Take it away, Accordion G.

0:24:430:24:47

HE PLAYS A LIVELY TUNE

0:24:470:24:52

-Maggie, what was Acky G playing?

-I don't know. Was it Frere Jacques?

0:24:590:25:05

I doubt it, but let's see if you're right. Play it in, please.

0:25:150:25:20

Bass, bass, bass.

0:25:200:25:23

I'm afraid you're wrong, cocker.

0:25:230:25:24

It was All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor.

0:25:240:25:27

I'm not surprised you didn't get it cos you were rubbish, Ack.

0:25:270:25:30

Has it rusted or something?

0:25:300:25:31

Acky G, thank you for everything, but now you can go away. Thank you.

0:25:310:25:35

Give us a wave, Ack. Perfect. Thank you.

0:25:350:25:40

The big G. Right, what is the speed of light?

0:25:400:25:44

-300 million metres per second.

-No, it's much slower. Look.

0:25:440:25:49

What do Saturn and Jupiter have in common?

0:25:560:25:59

-They're both gas giants in the outer solar system.

-No.

0:25:590:26:02

They're both fans of snooker. They love it.

0:26:020:26:05

-Complete this sentence - space the final...

-Frontier.

0:26:050:26:09

No, it's space the final word in the sentence. Hello, I like space.

0:26:090:26:14

Keep calm, don't carry on.

0:26:140:26:16

Time's up, Margaret, that means you've won tonight's star prize...

0:26:160:26:21

A sprig of thyme and a train -

0:26:210:26:23

sprig of thyme and train not included.

0:26:230:26:25

What do you think about that, cocker?

0:26:250:26:27

Unexpected.

0:26:270:26:29

-Yes, and it's your lucky day because you've also won a holiday.

-To where?

0:26:290:26:34

A day trip to the sewers beneath the studio.

0:26:340:26:36

Have you got any last words before you go?

0:26:360:26:39

I'd like to say, it was really fun being here...

0:26:390:26:41

Herman, flush her away.

0:26:430:26:47

SCREAMING

0:26:470:26:48

What a lovely visitor from outer space.

0:26:510:26:53

Reet, I'm off to paint these walls terracotta

0:26:530:26:55
