# Who could we be today? What could we do?

0:00:110:00:15

# I'd like to drive a racing car or fly to the moon

0:00:150:00:20

# I could be a firefighter, a farmer or a vet

0:00:200:00:24

# A knight in shining armour, or I could be a chef

0:00:390:00:41

Right, hold it still.

0:00:430:00:45

-There we go.

-We're making a rocket for a friend of ours.

-Alex.

0:00:450:00:49

He's sick in bed. And when he's sick, he loves to fly rockets.

0:00:490:00:53

-This will definitely cheer him up.

-Let's wrap it up.

0:00:530:00:57

Hold on. I think we're going to need some extra padding,

0:00:570:01:01

in case it gets broken.

0:01:010:01:03

-Yes, you're right. And I have just the thing. Wait right there.

-OK.

0:01:030:01:06

POPPING AND CRACKLING

0:01:080:01:10

-Sid, what's that noise?

-Bubble wrap!

0:01:100:01:13

We can wrap it in this, but not before I make a few pops!

0:01:130:01:19

-Ah, there you go, Rebecca.

-Thanks.

-Before you go, one more.

0:01:190:01:24

POPPING AND CRACKLING

0:01:240:01:25

-Oh, yes! That feels so good.

-Sid?

-Yes.

-Could I have it now, please?

0:01:250:01:31

-Sorry. There you go.

-Thank you.

0:01:310:01:33

This bubble wrap, there are no bubbles left in it. It's just wrap!

0:01:340:01:39

-Sorry.

-We can't use this. We'll have to use something else.

0:01:390:01:43

'Ho-ho! Ho-ho!'

0:01:430:01:45

-Hold on, Rebecca. It's time!

-Great!

0:01:450:01:49

-It's time to play!

-Whose turn is it today?

-Let it be me.

-Let it be me.

0:01:510:01:59

Me. Me.

0:01:590:02:01

# Let it be me!

0:02:010:02:03

# Let, let, let it be me!

0:02:030:02:05

# Let it be me!

0:02:050:02:07

# Could it be me?

0:02:070:02:08

# Let it be me, let it be me!

0:02:080:02:12

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me!

0:02:120:02:15

# Let, let, let, let, let, let, let, let it be me!

0:02:150:02:20

# Let it be me, let it be me!

0:02:200:02:22

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me! #

0:02:220:02:27

-Could it be me?

-Could it be me?

0:02:270:02:29

It's me!

0:02:310:02:33

# Yes, it's me! Yes, it's me!

0:02:330:02:36

# I'm really, really, really, really happy it's me! #

0:02:360:02:42

Look, there's the dressing up room.

0:02:420:02:44

# Let's play! #

0:02:440:02:47

This is really exciting.

0:02:470:02:49

Let's find out what we're playing today.

0:02:490:02:52

Wow! So, I've got a clown's head, a bee's body and a caveman's feet.

0:02:570:03:03

No, that can't be right.

0:03:030:03:05

So, this time I have on a pair of trousers,

0:03:090:03:12

a bright yellow jacket and a shoulder bag.

0:03:120:03:16

What are we playing today?

0:03:160:03:18

We're going to play Postman and deliver all the letters and parcels.

0:03:180:03:22

So what do we need to know?

0:03:220:03:24

Postmen and women take letters and parcels from one place to another.

0:03:240:03:29

This is called the mail.

0:03:290:03:31

People post mail into postboxes, so that postmen can collect it.

0:03:310:03:35

When they want to get mail out of the box, they use special keys.

0:03:350:03:39

Lots of letters and parcels have to travel a long way to be delivered.

0:03:410:03:45

Special trains take the mail on long journeys,

0:03:450:03:49

travelling through the night.

0:03:490:03:51

Letters and parcels need the address of the person

0:03:510:03:55

they are going to on them. They also need postcodes,

0:03:550:03:58

which are letters and numbers that help tell postmen exactly

0:03:580:04:02

where to deliver the mail.

0:04:020:04:05

So that's everything we need to remember,

0:04:050:04:08

but do we need anything else?

0:04:080:04:10

Wow! A foot pump?

0:04:120:04:14

How is this going to help me deliver letters and parcels?

0:04:140:04:17

Well, I guess I'm going to find out.

0:04:170:04:19

So we've got everything we need. Let's go!

0:04:190:04:22

-Rebecca, guess what we're playing today.

-You're playing at dancing.

0:04:240:04:29

-No. Look at me. We're playing Postman.

-Oh, that is so good!

0:04:290:04:34

-I wish I was playing Postman.

-Someone's got to find something

0:04:340:04:37

to put that in, so Alex gets his rocket.

0:04:370:04:40

OK. I'll do that. I'm sure we'll find something.

0:04:400:04:43

-Have fun.

-Will do. Bye.

-Bye.

0:04:430:04:45

Come on, let's play Postman.

0:04:480:04:51

Right.

0:05:010:05:03

Here I am, Postman Sid, ready to deliver all the letters and parcels.

0:05:030:05:08

So where am I meant to be, then?

0:05:080:05:11

-Whoa! Whoa!

-Oh, yo, dude.

0:05:110:05:14

Oh... Yo...dude.

0:05:140:05:17

-Hey, are you a postman?

-I am.

-Oh, cool.

0:05:180:05:22

You're just the dude I need, then.

0:05:220:05:25

Right. Well, Postman Sid at your service.

0:05:250:05:28

My mum asked me to post this parcel, right, but, like, it doesn't

0:05:280:05:31

fit into any of the postboxes, like, cos it's so completely too big.

0:05:310:05:35

I can see your problem. It is so too completely too big.

0:05:350:05:39

I was taking it to the sorting office cos they've got this, like, big

0:05:390:05:43

-postbox outside.

-The sorting office?

0:05:430:05:46

Where all the post is collected. That's where I should be, then.

0:05:460:05:50

-I know, I'll take it for you if you want.

-Solid.

-Pardon?

0:05:500:05:53

Thank you.

0:05:550:05:57

Oh. Urgh. OK, no problem. Um...

0:05:570:06:02

-Which way is the sorting office?

-It's just down there and to the left.

0:06:020:06:06

OK, thanks.

0:06:060:06:08

-Laters.

-Yeah, laters...

0:06:080:06:10

young...dude.

0:06:100:06:12

-Oh, my! Oh, deary me!

-Oh.

0:06:160:06:20

Hello. Can I help you?

0:06:200:06:23

-Oh, young man. I've gone and posted a card in this postbox.

-Ha-ha!

0:06:230:06:29

Well, that's OK. You're supposed to do that.

0:06:290:06:32

That's where you put the letters and the cards.

0:06:320:06:35

Ho-ho! Oh, you are a funny chap! Oh, of course I know that.

0:06:350:06:40

-Great. Good. Glad to have been of help.

-No, no.

0:06:400:06:44

What it is, I've posted it in there, but it hasn't got a stamp on it.

0:06:440:06:49

Oh, I see. Well, don't worry. I'll reach in there and pull it out.

0:06:490:06:53

-My hero!

-Stand back, madam. Right. OK.

0:06:530:06:57

Right, let's have a look in here.

0:06:570:07:00

There... I think... Nearly got it. Nearly got it... Urgh...

0:07:000:07:04

-I've nearly...got it!

-Oh, ho-ho! What a clever chap you are!

-Hold on.

0:07:040:07:11

-Urgh... My hand's stuck!

-Oh, my! Right. Oh!

0:07:110:07:16

-I tell you what, I'll give you a pull.

-Great idea.

0:07:160:07:20

On the count of three. One, two, three. Pull!

0:07:200:07:23

Pull!

0:07:230:07:25

-Oh! Let me help you up.

-Oh. Yes.

0:07:270:07:30

-Oh!

-Are you OK?

-Oh! Oh, yes. I'm absolutely fine.

0:07:300:07:37

Oh, my! What an adventure this is!

0:07:370:07:39

Right. There you go. There's your letter. I'd better be going.

0:07:390:07:44

-See you later.

-Oh, thank you very... Oh, hold on. Come back.

-What is it?

0:07:440:07:50

-This isn't my card.

-Isn't it?

-No, this one does have a stamp on it.

0:07:500:07:55

Oh, yes. So it does. I'd better pop this one back into the postbox.

0:07:550:08:00

-Which means yours must be in there somewhere.

-Oh, my! Oh, deary me!

0:08:010:08:08

That's Little Billy's birthday card. He's my grandson. He's a lovely boy.

0:08:080:08:14

But he'll never get that card if I don't put a stamp on it.

0:08:140:08:17

-Well, there must be some way of getting in there.

-Oh, look.

0:08:170:08:20

-There's a door on the front.

-Oh, yes. Maybe I can get that open.

0:08:200:08:25

-I hope so. That has to get to Scotland.

-To Scotland?

0:08:250:08:29

OK, don't worry. Leave it to me. Um... Oh, no.

0:08:290:08:32

How am are going to open this door? It's locked solid. Oh, hold on.

0:08:320:08:37

I remember, do you? Postmen carry keys to open postboxes.

0:08:370:08:41

Maybe I've got some here somewhere.

0:08:410:08:44

Yes! Keys! Problem solved.

0:08:440:08:47

Bingo!

0:08:510:08:54

-Marvellous. Now, can you see my card in there?

-Oh, yes. Here it is.

0:08:540:09:00

-One without a stamp on.

-Wonderful! Right then.

0:09:000:09:03

I'll just put my stamp on the front. There we go.

0:09:030:09:08

Oh, it is getting a bit late. And I was wondering,

0:09:100:09:13

would you mind taking this card to the sorting office?

0:09:130:09:18

It's only round the corner.

0:09:180:09:20

-Of course I will.

-Oh, thank you.

0:09:200:09:23

And I may as well take all these letters to the sorting office

0:09:230:09:27

while I'm at it.

0:09:270:09:28

Oh. Well, thank you so much, Mr Postman.

0:09:390:09:43

-Please take care of Little Billy's birthday card for me.

-I will.

0:09:430:09:48

Don't you worry. I quite like being a postman.

0:09:480:09:52

Urgh... I think!

0:09:520:09:54

Ah, here we are. The sorting office. Wow!

0:10:010:10:05

I've never seen so many letters and parcels!

0:10:050:10:09

-Ah, you must be the new chap.

-Yes. Postman Sid at your service.

0:10:090:10:13

-Clerk Mrs Postmistress.

-Postmistress.

0:10:130:10:16

That sounds like an important job.

0:10:160:10:18

Well, it jolly well is! Without me, none of this lot would get anywhere.

0:10:180:10:23

Ha-ha-ha! Oh, you've got some letters for me.

0:10:230:10:27

And a great big parcel.

0:10:270:10:30

Oh, marvellous! Letters over here and parcel just there.

0:10:300:10:35

-OK, will do.

-Right, then. Canada. England...

0:10:350:10:40

Oh, Scotland. I need a postman to take these up to Scotland for me.

0:10:400:10:45

Scotland? That's where Billy's birthday card is going.

0:10:450:10:48

Me! I can do that!

0:10:480:10:50

Oh, jolly good! Well, they need to get there by morning.

0:10:500:10:54

Absolutely vital.

0:10:540:10:56

-You can count on me.

-Marvellous!

0:10:560:10:59

OK, I'd better be off. I've got some elastic bands to sort. Ha-ha!

0:10:590:11:05

-Oh, excuse me. I think you dropped one of your elastic bands.

-Oh.

0:11:050:11:10

Silly me! Ha-ha-ha! Thank you.

0:11:100:11:13

Bye-bye.

0:11:130:11:15

Right. OK, so, we need to get these letters to Scotland by the morning.

0:11:150:11:20

Absolutely vital. And Billy's birthday card. Um...

0:11:200:11:24

Oh, Scotland's a long way from here.

0:11:240:11:27

How am are going to get there?

0:11:270:11:29

Oh, I know. I remember, do you?

0:11:290:11:31

Yes, trains take the mail on long journeys,

0:11:310:11:35

sometimes travelling through the night.

0:11:350:11:38

We need to get on a train. Right, let's go.

0:11:380:11:41

'All aboard the night train to Scotland.'

0:11:430:11:47

Wait for me!

0:11:470:11:49

Phew! Made it just in time.

0:11:490:11:52

Wow! Look at all these letters and parcels going to Scotland.

0:11:520:11:57

I think I'll have a nice cup of tea.

0:11:570:12:00

Whoa! It's quite hard to pour tea on a moving train.

0:12:030:12:07

Ah, a smooth bit.

0:12:080:12:10

One nice cup of tea.

0:12:150:12:18

Whoa! Oh, no! My tea!

0:12:180:12:22

Oh, no! The letters! I hope they're not all ruined.

0:12:220:12:25

Oh. No, I think they're OK.

0:12:270:12:29

Apart from Billy's birthday card.

0:12:290:12:31

The address is smudged, except for the letters and numbers at the end.

0:12:310:12:36

How am I going to be able to deliver it? Oh, no!

0:12:360:12:39

We've arrived.

0:12:460:12:48

And it's morning. Which means it's Billy's birthday.

0:12:490:12:53

And I've got to try and find him

0:12:530:12:54

and deliver his birthday card with no address to help me. Oh, no!

0:12:540:13:00

So how am I going to find him, then? Oh, I know. Billy!

0:13:090:13:14

Billy? Billy, where are you?

0:13:140:13:17

I'm Billy. What do you want?

0:13:180:13:22

-Little Billy, whose birthday it is?

-Och, no. I'm Big Billy.

0:13:220:13:26

My birthday was three weeks ago. I got a pogo stick and a new hat.

0:13:260:13:31

Best birthday I ever had.

0:13:310:13:33

You're not the Billy I'm looking for.

0:13:330:13:36

-Do you know any other Billys around here?

-I'm Big Billy.

0:13:360:13:39

And then there's Medium Size Billy who lives down the Glen.

0:13:390:13:42

And then there's the man who lives by the Loch,

0:13:420:13:46

-Absolutely Massive Billy.

-None of them sound like our Billy.

0:13:460:13:50

-No, not if he's little.

-So how am I going to find him?

0:13:500:13:53

I won't be able to deliver his birthday card, and all

0:13:530:13:56

-because I spilt tea on the envelope.

-Och, I'm sure you didn't mean to.

0:13:560:14:01

No, I didn't. But there must be some way of getting this card to him.

0:14:010:14:06

Oh, hold on! I know! I remember, do you?

0:14:060:14:09

Postcodes are letters

0:14:090:14:12

and numbers that tell postmen where to deliver the mail.

0:14:120:14:15

So all we need to do is work out what these letters and numbers mean.

0:14:150:14:20

-Och, I can tell you that.

-You can?

-Yes. I'm the local postman.

0:14:200:14:25

What a stroke of luck!

0:14:250:14:27

The postcode can tell you what street and town the house is in,

0:14:270:14:31

-but not the exact house.

-Well, it's a start.

0:14:310:14:34

It's meant to go to a village way up in the Highlands,

0:14:340:14:37

-in a street called Highland Avenue.

-Thanks.

0:14:370:14:41

-So how do I get there?

-You can borrow my postman's van.

-Great!

0:14:410:14:46

Yes, but there's only...one...small...problem.

0:14:460:14:52

My back wheel. Ah. It's as flat as a pancake.

0:14:540:14:59

Oh, no!

0:14:590:15:01

We've come this far and got so close,

0:15:010:15:04

only to be beaten by a flat tyre.

0:15:040:15:06

Oh, no! Oh, hold on. I remember something, do you?

0:15:080:15:14

Yes! This foot pump. I knew it would come in handy.

0:15:140:15:18

-We can pump it up with this.

-Brilliant! Right, let's get pumping!

0:15:180:15:24

-There we go.

-Nice work, son.

-Thanks, Big Billy.

0:15:350:15:39

Now I can drive up to Little Billy's house and deliver his birthday card.

0:15:390:15:43

I think I'll go and have a bite to eat with Absolutely Massive Billy.

0:15:430:15:47

-Now, there's a man who knows how to throw a big lunch.

-Thanks again.

0:15:470:15:51

Right. Let's get up to Highland Avenue.

0:15:510:15:54

Right. So this is where Billy lives, Highland Avenue.

0:15:560:16:00

And we're just in time for his birthday. So which house is his?

0:16:000:16:06

Is it this one?

0:16:060:16:08

Maybe it's this one.

0:16:080:16:12

Or maybe it's this one.

0:16:130:16:17

Let's give it a try.

0:16:170:16:18

KNOCKS ON DOOR That's the postman!

0:16:180:16:22

-Hello. Are you Little Billy?

-That's me.

-I've got a card for you.

0:16:220:16:28

Oh, that must be from my nana. I've been waiting for that.

0:16:280:16:32

She always sends me the best birthday cards.

0:16:320:16:36

It is! It's from Nana! Oh, thank you.

0:16:410:16:45

Mam! The postman's brought me Nana's card!

Well, we did it. We delivered Billy's birthday card right on time.

0:16:490:16:54

But we'd never have done it without remembering everything

0:16:540:16:57

we needed to know.

0:16:570:16:59

Postmen and postwomen have keys to open postboxes.

0:16:590:17:02

Sometimes trains take the mail on long journeys overnight.

0:17:040:17:08

And postcodes help tell the postman where to deliver the mail.

0:17:080:17:11

What's this I hear?

0:17:150:17:18

You brought Nana's card all the way here just in time for Billy's

0:17:180:17:21

-birthday.

-Really, it was nothing.

-Oh, it is. I can't thank you enough.

0:17:210:17:27

Here, have some of Billy's birthday cake.

0:17:270:17:30

I put it in a nice box for you

0:17:300:17:32

so you can eat it on the train on the way home.

0:17:320:17:35

Oh, thank you! I won't eat it on the train, though.

0:17:350:17:38

I'm going home a different way.

0:17:380:17:41

But I do have a friend that I can share it with.

0:17:410:17:43

-Oh. It is time we went home. Bye.

-Goodbye.

-See you, Billy.

0:17:430:17:49

Bye, Mr Postman!

0:17:490:17:51

We pumped up the tyre and delivered Billy's birthday card just in time.

0:17:550:18:00

Sounds like you were a great Postman, Sid.

0:18:000:18:03

Well, I had some help. How have you been getting on?

0:18:030:18:06

Well, I still don't know what to do about Alex's rocket.

0:18:060:18:09

Hold on, I have just the thing to put it in.

0:18:090:18:12

Now, it's got some birthday cake inside, but we can sort that out.

0:18:120:18:16

Oh! Lovely! Ooh! Perfect!

0:18:170:18:21

-Well done, Sid.

-Well, playing Postman was great fun.

0:18:210:18:25

What do you like to play?

0:18:250:18:27

I love playing Dragons. Listen to my roar.

0:18:290:18:33

ROAR!

0:18:330:18:35

Playing Kings is great fun. I am King Amidil and I wave like this.

0:18:350:18:42

When I play Racing Drivers, I drive really fast like this.

0:18:440:18:48

Vroom! Vroom!

0:18:480:18:51

-It's fun to play. Start playing today.

-Go to...

0:18:580:19:00

See you soon.
