# Who could we be today

0:00:100:00:13

# What could we do?

0:00:130:00:15

# I'd like to drive a racing car

0:00:150:00:18

# Or fly to the moon

0:00:180:00:20

# I could be a firefighter

0:00:200:00:22

# A farmer or a vet

0:00:220:00:25

# A knight in shining armour

0:00:250:00:27

# Or I could be a chef

0:00:380:00:40

So this one is more stinky than this one

0:00:430:00:46

but not as stinky as the Stilton.

0:00:460:00:48

-Hmm.

-Oh, phew, Sid! Stinks in here.

0:00:480:00:52

Yes, it's my collection of stinky cheeses.

0:00:520:00:55

They're definitely stinky!

0:00:550:00:57

We've got a whole range, from stinky to very stinky

0:00:570:01:01

to this abominably, revoltingly stinky cheese.

0:01:010:01:05

Oh! It can't be that bad.

0:01:050:01:07

It is that bad.

0:01:120:01:15

-That is the stinkiest cheese of all time!

-It is a bit stinky.

0:01:170:01:22

-Can you put the lid back on, please?

-Good idea. There.

0:01:220:01:26

-It's still a bit whiffy in here.

-Very.

0:01:260:01:29

-Hold on, Sid, it's time.

-Great!

0:01:310:01:34

-It's time to play.

-Whose turn is it today?

0:01:360:01:41

-Let it be me.

-Let it be me.

0:01:410:01:44

-Me!

-Me! Let it be me.

0:01:440:01:47

Let, let, let it be me.

0:01:470:01:50

-Let it be me.

-Let it be me.

0:01:500:01:53

# Let it be me

0:01:530:01:55

# Let it be me

0:01:550:01:57

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

0:01:570:02:01

Let, let, let, let,

0:02:010:02:03

let, let, let it be me!

0:02:030:02:05

# Let it be me

0:02:050:02:06

# Let it be me

0:02:060:02:08

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

0:02:080:02:12

-Could it be me?

-Could it be me?

0:02:120:02:15

It's me!

0:02:170:02:18

# Yes, it's me

0:02:180:02:20

# Yes, it's me

0:02:200:02:22

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

0:02:220:02:27

Look, there's the dressing-up room.

0:02:270:02:31

# Let's play. #

0:02:310:02:32

So what are we going to play? Let's find out.

0:02:320:02:36

A clown outfit, cowboy boots and a chef's hat! I don't think so!

0:02:420:02:47

Let's try again.

0:02:470:02:49

Well, I've got a cap with a spanner on it and some overalls.

0:02:530:02:58

What do you think we're playing today?

0:02:580:03:01

Yes, we're going to play mechanics and mend broken cars!

0:03:010:03:05

So what do we need to know?

0:03:050:03:07

First of all, Rebecca,

0:03:070:03:09

mechanics use trucks to get to broken-down cars

0:03:090:03:13

that they need to fix.

0:03:130:03:14

Sometimes they have a winch on the back for towing cars.

0:03:140:03:18

If mechanics want to change a tyre,

0:03:180:03:21

they use a jack to lift the car up so they can get the wheel off.

0:03:210:03:26

Cars must have oil in them

0:03:260:03:29

and mechanics often check there is enough oil by using a dipstick.

0:03:290:03:35

OK, so that's what we need to remember. Do we need anything else?

0:03:360:03:41

A magnet! You use this to pick up metal things. Oh, well.

0:03:440:03:50

I guess it'll come in handy.

0:03:500:03:52

OK, we've got everything we need. Let's go!

0:03:520:03:55

-Oh!

-Yep, that still is pretty bad.

0:03:590:04:02

Sid, can you guess what we're playing today?

0:04:020:04:05

-You're being a big blueberry ice pop.

-I can't understand you.

0:04:050:04:08

-A big blueberry ice pop.

-No, we're playing at being mechanics!

-Oh, wow!

0:04:080:04:13

I wish I could be a mechanic.

0:04:130:04:15

Actually, I think you should stay here and sort that smell out. Ugh!

0:04:150:04:19

-Will do.

-Bye.

-Bye!

0:04:190:04:22

# Let's play! #

0:04:220:04:26

Come on, then. Let's play mechanics!

0:04:260:04:30

Ooh!

0:04:300:04:31

Whee! Whoo!

0:04:370:04:43

# Let's play! #

0:04:430:04:45

So where are we? A garage.

0:04:450:04:48

This looks like the right place for a mechanic.

0:04:480:04:53

Look, a truck! Just the thing. We can use this to find some cars to mend.

0:04:530:04:58

This is great fun! All we need to find now is a car to fix.

0:05:050:05:09

Look, there's one! He definitely needs our help.

0:05:110:05:15

Bonnet up, hazard lights flashing. Let's see what we can do.

0:05:150:05:20

Hello. I'm Rebecca the mechanic.

0:05:220:05:25

A mechanic? Great!

0:05:250:05:26

Really, a mechanic? You're just what I need.

0:05:260:05:29

-I said we'd be needed.

-Allow me to introduce myself.

0:05:290:05:33

I'm Kevin Crankshaft, chauffeur to the rich, the very rich

0:05:330:05:37

and the extremely, fabulously rich.

0:05:370:05:39

-Nice to meet you, Mr Crankshaft.

-Charmed, I am sure.

0:05:390:05:43

I was on the way to pick up my boss, Bernard Bigbucks,

0:05:430:05:46

when the motor broke down.

0:05:460:05:48

-PHONE RINGS

-Hello. Hello Mr Bigbucks, sir.

0:05:480:05:52

Yes, sir. Indeed, sir.

0:05:520:05:54

I'm on my way to you now, sir. Just got a slight hitch, sir.

0:05:540:05:59

No! Nothing serious, sir.

0:05:590:06:01

I'm on my way, sir.

0:06:010:06:03

Thank you, Mr Bigbucks, sir. Bye-bye, sir.

0:06:030:06:06

-That was Mr Bigbucks.

-I guessed.

0:06:060:06:09

I didn't say the motor had broken down - he'd have gone potty.

0:06:090:06:13

-Don't suppose you could mend it?

-I'll take a look. I'll certainly try.

0:06:130:06:19

Hmm. OK, hang on.

0:06:210:06:25

-How bad is it?

-I don't know.

0:06:300:06:33

-It does smell kind of odd, like bananas.

-Eh?

0:06:330:06:37

Oh! That's my banana air freshener.

0:06:370:06:40

-I keep it in the car to make it smell nice.

-Oh, right!

0:06:400:06:44

OK, let's try and start this thing. Can I have the keys, please?

0:06:450:06:49

-There you are.

-Thank you.

0:06:490:06:51

-I'll have a look round the front.

-Right. Let's start it.

0:06:510:06:56

ENGINE CHOKES

0:06:560:06:58

OK, let's try again. Hmm, nothing's happening.

0:06:580:07:04

-Bad news, I'm afraid. Your car's broken.

-Thought as much.

0:07:090:07:13

-Can you fix it?

-I think do. We need to get it to a garage.

0:07:130:07:16

Oh, dear. Will this take long? I need to get it sorted very quickly.

0:07:160:07:20

You don't know him. He gets cross if things don't go right.

0:07:200:07:24

You would not like him cross.

0:07:240:07:26

The sooner we get it to a garage, the sooner you can pick him up.

0:07:260:07:30

-How are we going to get it there?

-I'll steer, you push.

0:07:300:07:33

I can't push a car. My suit'll get dirty. Mr Bigbucks won't like that.

0:07:330:07:37

Tell you what. You get in and steer and I'll do the pushing.

0:07:370:07:41

-I am a mechanic after all.

-Thanks, Rebecca.

0:07:410:07:44

I like her.

0:07:450:07:47

-OK, ready when you are.

-OK, here we go. And push!

0:07:490:07:57

And push!

0:08:000:08:02

And push!

0:08:040:08:08

Go on, that's it! You're doing really well.

0:08:080:08:12

Yep, this is great! Keep going! That's it, go on!

0:08:120:08:18

And push!

0:08:180:08:20

And... Rebecca.

0:08:200:08:23

-Are we there yet?

-No, we're not there yet.

0:08:230:08:28

-This car is way too heavy for me to push to the garage.

-Oh.

0:08:280:08:32

That's disappointing.

0:08:320:08:34

-Yes, it is.

-That's more than disappointing.

0:08:340:08:37

I've got Mr Bigbucks's lunch. He might be hungry.

0:08:370:08:40

Mr Bigbucks gets cross when he's hungry.

0:08:400:08:42

-You absolutely would not like him when he's...

-Yes, we know.

0:08:420:08:46

-When he's cross.

-Yes.

0:08:460:08:50

I don't know what we're going to do. This car has completely broken down.

0:08:500:08:54

There's no way I can push it all the way to the garage.

0:08:540:08:58

There must be some way I can move it.

0:08:580:09:01

Oh! Hold on! I remember, do you?

0:09:010:09:06

Mechanics sometimes have a winch on the back of their trucks

0:09:060:09:09

for towing cars.

0:09:090:09:12

That's it - we'll use the winch!

0:09:120:09:14

Don't worry, Kevin. We'll get this car to the garage in no time.

0:09:140:09:19

She's good, that mechanic Rebecca.

0:09:190:09:21

OK, Kevin. We're all set. All we need to do now is to winch this car onto

0:09:230:09:27

the back of the trailer and we'll be on the road.

0:09:270:09:30

-Stand clear, please.

-Right-o.

0:09:300:09:32

PHONE RINGS

0:09:320:09:34

That'll be Mr Bigbucks. He'll want to know why we're not there.

0:09:340:09:38

Tell him the car's broken down and we're loading it onto the trailer.

0:09:380:09:43

I can't tell him that. He'll go potty.

0:09:430:09:46

I'll be as quick as I can.

0:09:460:09:47

Hello? Hello, Mr Bigbucks, sir. How nice to hear from you.

0:09:490:09:54

Yes, I'm just...on my way.

0:09:550:09:59

-WHIRRING

-Noise? What noise, sir?

0:09:590:10:03

Sorry! I'll be as quiet as I can.

0:10:030:10:05

Like a car being winched onto a trailer, sir? Really?

0:10:050:10:09

WHIRRING

0:10:090:10:10

I'll be with you in no time at all, sir.

0:10:100:10:14

Yes, I've got your sandwiches, sir.

0:10:140:10:17

Yes, and my suit is clean and tidy, sir. OK, Mr Bigbucks.

0:10:170:10:21

Thank you, sir. bye, sir.

0:10:210:10:23

-OK, go.

-Won't be long. We'll soon have this car to the garage.

0:10:230:10:27

# Let's play. #

0:10:290:10:31

This is brilliant. I like driving a tow-truck.

0:10:310:10:34

I quite like being a passenger for a change.

0:10:340:10:37

Now your car's on the back we'll have you on the road in no time.

0:10:370:10:41

-Nothing can go wrong!

-Everything's fine and dandy!

0:10:410:10:46

BANG!

0:10:460:10:47

Oh, no. What was that?

0:10:470:10:50

Tell me we haven't got a flat tyre.

0:10:500:10:52

-We've got a flat tyre.

-Oh, no! What are we going to do?

0:10:570:11:02

Mr Bigbucks will be so unhappy!

0:11:020:11:06

I have no idea how I'm going to change that tyre.

0:11:060:11:10

I can't move it if the car is resting on it,

0:11:100:11:13

and if I can't take the wheel off,

0:11:130:11:15

I can't change it and get moving again.

0:11:150:11:17

What am I going to do?

0:11:170:11:19

Oh! Hold on! I remember, do you?

0:11:190:11:23

If mechanics want to change a tyre,

0:11:230:11:25

they use a jack to lift the car up and take the wheel off.

0:11:250:11:29

We need a jack!

0:11:290:11:31

-This'll do the trick.

-Oh, great!

-Here goes.

0:11:350:11:39

-That is clever.

-Now we can take the wheel off

0:11:470:11:50

-and put the new one on. We'll be on our way in no time.

-Great!

0:11:500:11:54

She really is good, that mechanic Rebecca.

0:11:540:11:57

# Let's play! #

0:11:570:11:58

Wheel fixed.

0:11:580:12:01

Yes. Nearly there, Mr Bigbucks. Just a slight problem with the car, sir.

0:12:010:12:05

Yes, we'll be at the garage in just a moment, sir.

0:12:070:12:10

-We have the best mechanic on the job.

-Me!

0:12:100:12:12

Thanks, Mr Bigbucks. Bye-bye. Bye-bye, sir.

0:12:120:12:15

-Phew. He says he'll be in the garage in ten minutes.

-Well, we're here.

0:12:150:12:20

So why don't you put the kettle on,

0:12:200:12:22

-and I'll see what's wrong with the car.

-Right.

0:12:220:12:25

# Let's play! #

0:12:250:12:26

Right. Let's take a look at this engine, then.

0:12:280:12:32

Oooh! This bolt's a bit loose.

0:12:430:12:46

SPROING!

0:12:460:12:48

Oops! That needs to go back in.

0:12:480:12:51

Right.

0:12:510:12:52

OK, here we go.

0:12:520:12:54

There we...

0:12:560:12:58

Oh, no! I've dropped it.

0:12:580:13:02

I need to get that out. Right. Here we go.

0:13:020:13:06

I can see it, but I can't reach it.

0:13:110:13:15

No! I've dropped that bolt and I can't reach it,

0:13:150:13:19

and it needs to go back on the car or it won't work.

0:13:190:13:23

What am I going to do?

0:13:230:13:24

Oh, hold on!

0:13:240:13:27

Of course!

0:13:270:13:29

We can use this!

0:13:290:13:31

We'll use this magnet to pick up the bolt. Here we go.

0:13:310:13:35

A-ha! Yes! Got it!

0:13:370:13:41

Right. Let's pop it back on.

0:13:410:13:43

Hello!

0:13:460:13:48

Anyone here?

0:13:480:13:49

Where's my chauffeur?

0:13:490:13:51

Done. Now we better get this car started before Mr Bigbucks gets here.

0:13:510:13:56

Don't want him arriving before...

0:13:560:13:58

Oh! And you are?

0:13:580:14:00

Bigbucks. Mr Bigbucks.

0:14:000:14:03

Oh, yes. So you are.

0:14:030:14:05

Yes. Well. Where's my chauffeur? He said he'd be here.

0:14:050:14:09

He's just popped off to make a cup of tea. Don't worry,

0:14:090:14:13

he'll be back any minute!

0:14:130:14:14

-And I've just finished fixing your car.

-Well, I hope it works.

0:14:140:14:18

So do I. Excuse me.

0:14:180:14:19

Right, let's give it a go.

0:14:240:14:27

ENGINE STALLS

0:14:270:14:28

-It's not going!

-It doesn't seem very fixed to me.

-No.

0:14:310:14:34

I tell you what, I'll have one last check

0:14:340:14:37

while you have your lovely lunch. It's a sandwich!

0:14:370:14:41

Oh, all right. Doesn't smell very fresh.

0:14:410:14:45

Right. We need to get this car started.

0:14:450:14:48

But I've tried everything I can, and it still isn't working!

0:14:480:14:52

Oh, no, what am I going to do?

0:14:520:14:55

Oh! Hold on!

0:14:550:14:57

I remember, do you?

0:14:570:14:59

Cars must have oil in them,

0:14:590:15:01

and mechanics check if there's enough by using a dipstick.

0:15:010:15:06

Maybe there's not enough oil in this car. We need to check.

0:15:060:15:10

Ah! Here's the dipstick.

0:15:150:15:17

And it's completely clean. We need to put some oil in this car.

0:15:210:15:25

Oil. Let's put it in.

0:15:270:15:30

Now let's check if there's enough.

0:15:380:15:41

Good! There's oil in it. Perfect.

0:15:430:15:46

That sandwich was horrible.

0:15:460:15:48

-Well, at least your car's fixed.

-Oh. Right, marvellous.

0:15:480:15:52

That makes me very happy.

0:15:520:15:54

Are you smiling, Mr Bigbucks?

0:15:550:15:57

Well, I'm trying. I'm just not used to it.

0:15:570:16:00

-You look very happy to me.

-You are a marvellous mechanic, Rebecca.

0:16:000:16:04

If you ever need a job, give me a call.

0:16:040:16:07

Now, I'm going to get myself another lunch.

0:16:070:16:10

That sandwich did not do the trick at all.

0:16:100:16:13

I think we've done well today.

0:16:130:16:15

-Here we are. One cup of tea.

-Thank you.

0:16:150:16:18

-Did you fix the car?

-Yes.

-Oh, great!

0:16:180:16:21

-Thanks, mechanic Rebecca. You're a star!

-You're very welcome.

0:16:210:16:25

We'd never have done it

0:16:250:16:26

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:16:260:16:30

Mechanics use trucks to get to broken-down cars,

0:16:300:16:33

and sometimes use winches to tow them away.

0:16:330:16:36

If mechanics want to change a tyre, they use a jack to lift the car up.

0:16:390:16:43

And they use a dipstick

0:16:450:16:47

to check if there is enough oil in a car or truck.

0:16:470:16:50

Ooh, by the way, has Mr Bigbucks arrived yet?

0:16:510:16:54

Yes. He's had lunch, but he gone to get another one.

0:16:540:16:57

-Did he look happy?

-Yes. Sort of. He made this face.

0:16:570:17:00

Good! That's his big smile.

0:17:000:17:03

I think it's time we went home.

0:17:050:17:07

Thanks so much, Kevin, it's been lovely to meet you.

0:17:070:17:10

Likewise, mechanic Rebecca. By way of saying thank you

0:17:100:17:13

I'd like you to have this banana air freshener.

0:17:130:17:17

-Thank you so much! That's great. Bye!

-Bye!

0:17:250:17:27

Then we winched the car under the back of the trailer!

0:17:270:17:30

Sounds brilliant, Rebecca.

0:17:300:17:32

Better than sitting around here smelling stinky cheeses.

0:17:320:17:35

-Where is your collection of stinky cheese?

-I ate them.

0:17:350:17:39

I think I can still smell it.

0:17:390:17:41

Yeah, it's definitely a smell around here somewhere.

0:17:410:17:44

Don't worry, I've got just the thing!

0:17:440:17:47

Smell this.

0:17:470:17:49

Mmm! Bananas!

0:17:490:17:51

Oh, yes, much better than stinky cheeses! Thanks!

0:17:510:17:57
