# Let's play!

# Who could we be today?

0:00:110:00:14

# What could we do?

0:00:140:00:16

# I'd like to drive a racing car

0:00:160:00:18

# Fly to the moon

0:00:180:00:21

# I could be a firefighter

0:00:210:00:23

# A farmer or a vet

0:00:230:00:25

# A knight in shining armour

0:00:250:00:27

# Or I could be a chef

0:00:270:00:29

# Let's play

# Let's play

# Let's have an adventure today. #

0:00:340:00:37

Let's play!

0:00:390:00:40

Sid?

0:00:470:00:48

Goal! Yes, I scored!

0:00:480:00:50

Oh, really great, but Sid, have you seen the bath plug?

0:00:500:00:54

The bath plug? You mean this?

0:00:540:00:56

Yes. What were you doing with it?

0:00:560:00:58

Playing ice hockey, of course!

0:00:580:01:00

Can I have it, please?

0:01:000:01:01

Yeah, of course, but why?

0:01:010:01:03

To stop the water running out of the bath.

0:01:030:01:06

What am I going to use as my puck?

0:01:060:01:08

Puck? What's a puck?

0:01:080:01:10

Ice hockey players use a stick and a puck to play with,

0:01:100:01:13

so without a puck, it's like football without a ball,

0:01:130:01:17

-or a flip without a flop.

-Or a bath without a plug.

0:01:170:01:20

Maybe I could use the soap instead.

0:01:200:01:22

Oh, yes. Actually, no. I'll need that, too.

0:01:220:01:25

This is serious. How can I be an ice hockey champ

0:01:250:01:28

if I can't practise with a puck?

0:01:280:01:30

How will I get clean if I don't have a bath?

0:01:300:01:33

-Don't worry, we'll think of something.

-But what?

0:01:330:01:37

JINGLE!

0:01:370:01:38

-Hold on, Sid, it's time!

-Great!

0:01:380:01:41

It's time to play!

0:01:460:01:47

Whose turn is it today?

0:01:470:01:49

Let it be me!

0:01:490:01:51

Let it be me!

0:01:510:01:52

-Me!

-Me!

0:01:520:01:55

# Let it be me

0:01:550:01:56

# Let it be me

0:01:560:01:58

# Let it be me

0:01:580:02:00

# Will it be me?

0:02:000:02:02

# Let it be me

0:02:020:02:04

# Let it be me

0:02:040:02:05

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

0:02:050:02:09

-# Let,

-let,

-let,

-let

0:02:090:02:11

# Let, let it be me!

0:02:110:02:13

# Let it be me

0:02:130:02:15

# Let it be me

0:02:150:02:16

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

0:02:160:02:21

-Could it be me?

-Could it be me?

0:02:210:02:23

It's me!

0:02:240:02:26

# Yes, it's me

0:02:260:02:28

# Yes, it's me

0:02:280:02:30

# I'm really, really, really, Really happy! #

0:02:300:02:33

It's me!

0:02:330:02:35

Look, there's the dressing up room.

0:02:350:02:37

So what are we going to play?

0:02:410:02:43

Let's find out.

0:02:430:02:45

So, a hula outfit, a sea captain's hat, and animal feet?

0:02:500:02:55

I don't think so. Let's try again.

0:02:550:02:57

Well, this time I've got on a big, heavy coat,

0:03:020:03:05

a funny-looking hat and a pair of boots.

0:03:050:03:08

I look like some old-fashioned sailor,

0:03:080:03:10

but what do you think we're playing today?

0:03:100:03:13

I know, we're playing sea captains from the olden days,

0:03:130:03:17

so what do we need to know?

0:03:170:03:19

First of all, Rebecca, sea captains in the olden days used special

0:03:210:03:25

instruments called sextants to find out where they were in the sea.

0:03:250:03:30

Sea captains used the wind to power their ships.

0:03:300:03:34

They could change direction by adjusting the sails

0:03:340:03:37

and turning the big steering wheel called the helm.

0:03:370:03:41

And lastly, Rebecca, sea captains sometimes got their crews to

0:03:410:03:46

sing special songs called shanties...

0:03:460:03:48

# We sailors on the sea. #

0:03:480:03:50

..so they all worked to the same rhythm.

0:03:500:03:54

OK, so that's what we need to remember,

0:03:540:03:56

do we need anything else?

0:03:560:03:58

Hmmm.

0:04:000:04:02

What's this?

0:04:020:04:04

A piece of paper with lines on it?

0:04:060:04:08

Well, I haven't got a clue what this is, but I guess it'll come in handy.

0:04:080:04:13

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

0:04:130:04:16

Hey, Sid.

0:04:180:04:19

Can you guess what we're playing today?

0:04:190:04:22

Arrr! Are you playing pirates, by any chance? Arrr!

0:04:220:04:26

No, way better than that.

0:04:260:04:27

We're playing sea captains from the olden days!

0:04:270:04:31

-Wow! Does that mean you sail your own ship?

-I hope so.

0:04:310:04:34

Lucky! While you're gone, I'm going to practise my ice hockey.

0:04:340:04:38

Not with my sponge!

0:04:380:04:40

Really? I guess I'll have to find something else.

0:04:400:04:43

-Good luck, Captain Rebecca!

-Thanks very much. See you!

0:04:430:04:47

Bye!

0:04:470:04:48

Come on, let's play sea captains!

0:04:490:04:51

Whoa!

0:04:540:04:56

Woo!

0:04:590:05:00

So, where are we?

0:05:030:05:05

Oh, it looks like a harbour.

0:05:060:05:08

A very old one.

0:05:090:05:11

Arrr, you look like a captain!

0:05:110:05:14

Well, hello there, lovely to meet you!

0:05:140:05:16

I'm Rebecca.

0:05:160:05:18

Er, I mean, er, yes, I am a proper sea captain.

0:05:180:05:22

Captain Rebecca, at your service! Arrr!

0:05:220:05:25

You must be the new captain of the Neptune, Captain Rebecca!

0:05:270:05:31

Oh, I suppose I must. What is the Neptune?

0:05:310:05:33

The Neptune, captain?

0:05:330:05:35

Only the finest ship to set sail across the ocean!

0:05:350:05:38

It only leaks on a Thursday, and you're in luck, because it's Friday.

0:05:380:05:43

It's over there!

0:05:430:05:44

Oh, that is beautiful! Is that my ship?

0:05:440:05:48

Yes, indeed. You are its captain.

0:05:480:05:51

The ship Neptune shall set sail after all!

0:05:510:05:54

Hey, boys! We've got a new captain!

0:05:540:05:57

Hurrah!

0:05:570:05:59

Oh, great! So what happened to the old captain, then?

0:05:590:06:02

Oh, he decided not to come, but that's a long story,

0:06:020:06:06

and we've got so little time. It's time for us to go.

0:06:060:06:09

My name is Richard Moby. I'm the ship's bosun, but call me Dick.

0:06:090:06:13

Oh, OK, Dick.

0:06:130:06:15

What does a bosun do, exactly?

0:06:150:06:17

Well, he takes care of the sails, of course!

0:06:170:06:20

We've got to haul all the fish across the ocean to the port of

0:06:200:06:24

-Old Bigtown, and we need to do it really fast!

-What's the rush?

0:06:240:06:28

-Have you ever smelt fish that's gone off?

-No.

0:06:280:06:31

Well, it's the worst smell in the world. Only worse!

0:06:310:06:34

Oh, well, let's not hang around. Let's climb aboard! Arrr!

0:06:340:06:39

Right!

0:06:390:06:40

Phwoar! They really do stink! Thanks a lot, Dick!

0:06:440:06:48

Welcome aboard the Neptune, captain! Shall I give you a quick tour?

0:06:550:06:59

-Port or starboard?

-Porter what, sorry? What does that mean?

0:06:590:07:03

Port is left, starboard is right! Everyone knows that, captain!

0:07:030:07:08

Of course they do! Just testing you, young Dick!

0:07:080:07:12

There's the lookout up there in the crow's nest.

0:07:120:07:15

-Hello, up there!

-Arrr!

-Have you laid any eggs yet?

0:07:150:07:18

Eggs, you know, in a nest?

0:07:200:07:23

It's a joke. Never mind.

0:07:230:07:24

Right. Well, I think that's everyone on board, captain. Oh, hold on.

0:07:240:07:29

-Where's Chester?

-Chester?

-The ship's cat.

0:07:290:07:32

We can't set sail without him. Chester? Chester!

0:07:320:07:35

MEOW!

0:07:350:07:37

Ah, there he is! Good boy, Chester! Chester! Leave that fish alone!

0:07:370:07:42

Oh, captain, that fish is beginning to pong!

0:07:420:07:45

Yes, it smells well and truly off. At least it can't get any worse.

0:07:450:07:49

You're right. Well, that's everyone, captain.

0:07:490:07:53

OK, then. So, which way are we headed, young Dick?

0:07:530:07:56

Right, we need to drop the fish off at Old Bigtown.

0:07:560:07:59

I'll show you on the chart. I've got...

0:07:590:08:02

Oh, I haven't actually got a chart!

0:08:020:08:04

Right. What does this chart look like?

0:08:040:08:07

Like a long, rolled up scroll of paper!

0:08:070:08:10

Hmmm.

0:08:100:08:11

Oh, maybe he means this!

0:08:110:08:14

Does it look anything like this?

0:08:140:08:16

Oh, that would be it! Good work, captain!

0:08:160:08:19

So, what does the red rectangle mean?

0:08:230:08:25

Oh, that, captain, is the Barracuda Rectangle!

0:08:250:08:29

So what is that, then?

0:08:340:08:36

'Tis a place, they say, full of sea monsters, bigger than houses!

0:08:360:08:40

Some say they even chase after ships!

0:08:400:08:43

You have to be bonkers to go through there!

0:08:430:08:47

As mad as a box of cannonballs!

0:08:470:08:49

-And that's exactly the way we're going!

-What?!

0:08:490:08:52

No wonder the other captain didn't come!

0:08:520:08:55

It's time to set sail. Take the helm.

0:08:550:08:58

-Pardon?

-The helm! The steering wheel.

0:08:580:09:00

Oh, right, yeah. Of course!

0:09:000:09:03

Here we go, then.

0:09:030:09:05

Weigh anchor!

0:09:050:09:06

Weigh anchor!

0:09:060:09:08

# Fiddly-diddly-dee

0:09:190:09:22

# Rebecca went to sea. #

0:09:220:09:24

I've been down below, captain, it's not looking good.

0:09:240:09:28

Why, what's wrong?

0:09:280:09:29

-You know you said the fish couldn't smell any worse?

-Yes.

0:09:290:09:33

-They do.

-Oh.

0:09:330:09:34

We need to get to Bigtown soon. Are we going the right way?

0:09:340:09:38

Yes, bosun.

0:09:380:09:39

We're heading towards the horizon. Old Bigtown should be over there.

0:09:390:09:43

-Steady as she goes.

-Are you sure?

0:09:430:09:46

As sure as a captain on her first day at sea with no experience can be.

0:09:460:09:50

Oh, that's not good.

0:09:500:09:52

Hmmm. I guess I'd better check where we're going.

0:09:520:09:56

But I have no idea where we are! It all looks the same to me.

0:09:560:10:00

How can I tell which way to go?

0:10:000:10:02

Oh, I remember, do you?

0:10:040:10:05

Sea captains in the olden days use a special instrument called

0:10:050:10:09

a sextant to find out where they were in the sea!

0:10:090:10:12

Bosun, a sextant, please!

0:10:120:10:15

There you are, captain! And you'll need a compass.

0:10:150:10:18

Thanks very much.

0:10:180:10:20

OK, so...

0:10:210:10:23

If we look through here, line it up with the horizon, find the sun...

0:10:230:10:28

Ah!

0:10:300:10:32

So that means we are here.

0:10:320:10:34

Now, check the compass.

0:10:360:10:38

That means we're heading in this direction!

0:10:380:10:43

Oh, no! That means we're heading towards the Barracuda Rectangle!

0:10:430:10:48

Phew!

0:10:550:10:57

I feel like I've been at sea for weeks and weeks.

0:10:570:11:00

Lunchtime, captain!

0:11:000:11:01

-Have you enjoyed your first morning at sea?

-I have, bosun.

0:11:010:11:05

So, what's on the menu? Please say it isn't fish!

0:11:050:11:08

Ha-ha! No, ma'am. Chef's special.

0:11:080:11:12

Is that someone's shoe?

0:11:120:11:14

No, it's yummy salt beef!

0:11:140:11:15

Hmmm. Do you have anything else on board to eat, please?

0:11:150:11:19

We've got some biscuits, captain.

0:11:190:11:22

I love biscuits!

0:11:220:11:24

Once I start, I can't stop!

0:11:240:11:26

Help yourself.

0:11:260:11:29

Oh, yum, biscuits!

0:11:290:11:31

I've had those for 15 years. It's amazing how long they stay fresh.

0:11:310:11:36

As fresh as a pair of pirate's pants!

0:11:360:11:39

-It's all looking good out there, now, captain.

-Good, good.

0:11:390:11:44

Sea monster ahoy!

0:11:440:11:46

A sea monster?

0:11:460:11:47

That's what I said!

0:11:470:11:49

Let me see.

0:11:510:11:52

There it is!

0:11:560:11:57

It's heading straight towards us!

0:11:570:12:00

Don't worry, boys! Captain Rebecca will keep us safe!

0:12:000:12:04

-Hurrah!

-Will I?

0:12:040:12:07

Oh, yes, yes, I will!

0:12:070:12:09

But hold on! The wind is blowing us closer towards the sea monster!

0:12:110:12:15

We need to change direction, but how do we do that?

0:12:150:12:21

Oh, hold on, I remember, do you?

0:12:210:12:24

Sea captains change direction by adjusting the sails

0:12:240:12:27

and turning the helm.

0:12:270:12:29

That's what we need to do.

0:12:290:12:31

-Move the sails, bosun!

-Aye-aye, captain!

0:12:310:12:34

Now let's turn this wheel as hard as we can.

0:12:340:12:37

We need to change direction, and fast!

0:12:370:12:40

Yes, that should do it!

0:12:410:12:44

We've done it! We're moving away from it!

0:12:460:12:49

Hold on, though!

0:12:490:12:51

Now it's coming after us! It's coming this way!

0:12:510:12:55

Sea monster still ahoy!

0:12:550:12:57

What are we going to do, captain?

0:12:570:12:59

I can't make the Neptune go any faster.

0:12:590:13:02

It's closing, captain, and fast!

0:13:020:13:05

Hang on a minute. That's no sea monster.

0:13:050:13:08

It's a whale!

0:13:090:13:11

A what?

0:13:110:13:12

A whale. You know, big mammal, swims in the sea, blows out its spout.

0:13:120:13:18

A whale! Don't worry, they're really, really friendly.

0:13:180:13:21

Well, captain, I do believe you've solved

0:13:210:13:24

the mystery of the Barracuda Rectangle!

0:13:240:13:27

It's all right, boys! It's not a sea monster. It's a whale!

0:13:270:13:32

Hurrah!

0:13:320:13:33

Now, let's get this fish to the port of Old Bigtown

0:13:330:13:37

before it gets any older.

0:13:370:13:38

Oh, the fish. There's good news and bad news, captain.

0:13:380:13:42

-The good news?

-Half the fish doesn't smell.

0:13:420:13:45

-Why?

-That's the bad news, captain. The cat's eaten it!

0:13:450:13:49

Chester! You're going to have a very bad tummy ache later!

0:13:490:13:53

Land ahoy! It's Old Bigtown, captain!

0:13:530:13:57

Oh, brilliant! Well done, crew. Good work.

0:13:570:14:00

Hang on a minute. We've stopped moving.

0:14:020:14:05

Squirming starfish! The wind's out of my sails.

0:14:050:14:09

If there's no wind in the sails, we won't move anywhere.

0:14:090:14:12

Yes, ma'am, and we've got to get that fish to dry land.

0:14:120:14:16

There's only one thing for it. Into the rowing boat!

0:14:160:14:19

-Right, I think we're all aboard.

-Aye, ma'am.

0:14:210:14:24

-Did you pack the fish?

-Yes, ma'am. It's by my feet.

0:14:240:14:28

Phwoar, so it is! Where's Chester?

0:14:280:14:31

He's leaning over the side.

0:14:310:14:33

I think he's regretting having that large, fishy lunch.

0:14:330:14:37

Oh, dear. OK. Are we ready, crew?

0:14:370:14:40

-ALL:

-Yes, ma'am.

0:14:400:14:41

Let's row this boat to harbour!

0:14:410:14:44

Yes, captain!

0:14:440:14:45

Here we go!

0:14:450:14:47

Let's go!

0:14:480:14:49

There we go. Good work.

0:14:510:14:53

-Hold on, captain.

-What?

0:14:540:14:56

-This isn't going well.

-Isn't it? Why?

0:14:560:14:59

-We aren't actually moving.

-Aren't we?

0:14:590:15:02

Oh, no, so we aren't.

0:15:020:15:05

OK, leave this to me.

0:15:050:15:07

Excuse me, crew?

0:15:070:15:09

Yes, captain?

0:15:090:15:10

If we're going to get to harbour, we'll have to work as a team.

0:15:100:15:15

Is that understood?

0:15:150:15:17

Yes, captain!

0:15:170:15:19

OK, then. Here we go. Altogether now, and row!

0:15:190:15:24

Row!

0:15:240:15:26

And row!

0:15:260:15:27

Hang on. Hold on. Stop, stop, stop!

0:15:270:15:32

It's still not working. We're still not rowing together.

0:15:320:15:36

So we're still not going anywhere.

0:15:360:15:38

We're doing our best, captain, but we can't row at the same time.

0:15:380:15:43

Oh, no. We'll never get to Old Bigtown

0:15:430:15:45

unless we can all row together! But how can we do that?

0:15:450:15:49

Oh, I remember, do you?

0:15:500:15:52

Sea captains used to get their crew to sing special songs called

0:15:520:15:57

shanties, so they could all row to the same rhythm.

0:15:570:16:00

That's what we need to do.

0:16:000:16:02

OK, everyone!

0:16:020:16:03

We're going to sing a song so we can row to the same rhythm. Understood?

0:16:030:16:08

Yes, captain!

0:16:080:16:10

Right, then. So what will we sing?

0:16:100:16:13

Erm.

0:16:130:16:14

I know, I've got it!

0:16:140:16:16

OK, people. From the top.

0:16:160:16:18

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:180:16:20

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:200:16:22

All together!

0:16:220:16:23

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:230:16:25

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:250:16:27

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:270:16:29

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:290:16:31

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:310:16:33

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:330:16:35

# We're sailors on the sea

0:16:350:16:37

# We're sailors on the sea. #

0:16:370:16:40

That's it!

0:16:400:16:41

We've made it to Old Bigtown! Well done, everyone!

0:16:410:16:45

-Three cheers for the captain. Hip, hip!

-Hooray!

0:16:450:16:48

-Hip, hip!

-Hooray!

0:16:480:16:50

-Hip, hip!

-Hooray!

0:16:500:16:52

Thank you so much, everyone! Good news, bosun.

0:16:520:16:55

-You'll be able to offload that fish now.

-That's a relief, ma'am.

0:16:550:17:00

Phew! We would never have made it without remembering everything

0:17:000:17:04

we needed to know.

0:17:040:17:06

Sea captains used sextants to find out where they were in the sea.

0:17:060:17:10

They could change direction by moving the sails and turning the wheel.

0:17:100:17:15

And sometimes they sang special songs called shanties

0:17:150:17:19

so they all worked to the same rhythm.

0:17:190:17:22

# We're sailors on the sea. #

0:17:220:17:24

I think it's time we went home.

0:17:270:17:29

Bye, everyone! It's been great fun sailing the seas with you!

0:17:290:17:35

Bye, captain!

0:17:350:17:36

And we all sang together, and we managed to row all the way into port!

0:17:450:17:49

When we arrived, even Chester the cat looked pleased!

0:17:490:17:53

That sounds great fun!

0:17:530:17:54

It was, but I'm going to need a relaxing bath after that adventure.

0:17:540:17:59

Oh, hold on, what have you been using as a puck?

0:17:590:18:03

This duck is really good at sliding around.

0:18:030:18:06

I'll need that for my bath.

0:18:060:18:08

Oh, not again! So what am I going to use?

0:18:080:18:10

Don't worry. I've got just the thing.

0:18:100:18:13

-It's perfect!

-What's this?

0:18:130:18:15

It's a ship's biscuit.

0:18:150:18:16

But it's not like any other biscuit you've eaten before.

0:18:160:18:20

Right shape, right size.

0:18:200:18:23

-Rock hard. It's perfect!

-Great!

0:18:230:18:26

Playing sea captains was great fun. What do you like to play?

0:18:260:18:30

I like to play doctors.

0:18:340:18:36

I use my stethoscope like this.

0:18:360:18:39

I love playing athletes. I always win gold.

0:18:390:18:43

I like to play clowns, and pull silly faces like this.

0:18:460:18:52

It's fun to play. Start playing today!

0:18:590:19:03

Go to...

0:19:030:19:05

See you soon!

0:19:080:19:10
