# Worlds away from anyone

# They were burning themselves out in the sun

0:00:030:00:06

# Worlds away from anyone

0:00:060:00:08

# They were burning themselves out in the sun

0:00:080:00:12

# There was just enough to get that far away

0:00:120:00:18

# Ooh... #

0:00:190:00:22

OK, here's the thing. We all have a memory.

0:00:340:00:38

That big hard drive in our brain where we store all our files.

0:00:380:00:42

And we're always being taught to remember stuff, right?

0:00:420:00:45

Facts, figures, names, places.

0:00:450:00:49

But how come we're never taught how to forget,

0:00:490:00:51

how to erase the complicated stuff, the ghosts

0:00:510:00:55

that come back to haunt us?

0:00:550:00:57

Take the day Mel took me snorkeling, and we dug up some buried treasure

0:00:570:01:00

from the past.

0:01:000:01:03

Just a bunch of old letters!

0:01:170:01:19

-Some treasure!

-Whoa.

0:01:190:01:21

There could be a clue in here that'll lead us TO the treasure.

0:01:210:01:24

You've been watching too much kids' TV.

0:01:240:01:27

"Dear Sheena, war is crazy.

0:01:320:01:34

"I dream of the day it ends and we meet again."

0:01:340:01:38

"Dear Sheena", "Dear Sheena."

0:01:380:01:40

They're all for the same person and all written by the same guy. Len.

0:01:400:01:45

Wow. He was keen.

0:01:450:01:48

"You're in my memory always, waiting to appear.

0:01:480:01:51

"Whenever I close my eyes, I'm back there with you."

0:01:510:01:54

Puke. You got any juice?

0:01:540:01:56

"I can see you by your house at number 57.

0:01:590:02:03

"Under the big old tree where we first met,

0:02:030:02:06

"your smile so radiant."

0:02:060:02:10

Vicki Streeton!

0:02:100:02:11

'What's she doing in my head?

0:02:110:02:14

'I've been trying not to think about Vicki for months.'

0:02:140:02:18

Ever since I met her new friend, Josh.

0:02:180:02:22

All perfect in a private school prefect way.

0:02:220:02:24

That day was the last time I'd seen Vicki...

0:02:240:02:27

Goodbye, Lockie.

0:02:270:02:28

Bye, Vicky.

0:02:280:02:30

'..and I've been trying to forget her ever since.'

0:02:320:02:35

So why is Vicki back to haunt me now?

0:02:380:02:41

What about Vicki?

0:02:410:02:44

-Oh, what have you got there?

-A, er...treasure chest.

0:02:460:02:50

Old letters we found in the ocean.

0:02:500:02:52

So, what were you saying about Vicki?

0:02:520:02:54

-I didn't say "Vicki".

-You just said "Vicki".

0:02:540:02:58

No, I said..."tricky".

0:02:590:03:02

Tricky to know what do with all these letters.

0:03:020:03:05

Wartime correspondence.

0:03:050:03:06

'66 Vietnam.

0:03:060:03:09

Cataclysmic times.

0:03:090:03:12

They, must have been washed off the boat that was delivering them.

0:03:120:03:16

Faded address.

0:03:160:03:19

You might want to get those back to, er...Sheena.

0:03:190:03:24

Me? Personally?

0:03:240:03:27

How would you feel if someone close to you disappeared from your life?

0:03:270:03:31

It was ages ago. She's probably over it by now.

0:03:310:03:35

The heart never forgets, Lockie.

0:03:350:03:37

While Sarge had me wrestling with my conscience,

0:03:380:03:41

Mum was wrestling with everyone's shifts at the radio station,

0:03:410:03:45

after they'd all called in sick.

0:03:450:03:46

There just aren't enough minutes in the hour to learn all there is

0:03:460:03:51

about composting with worms.

0:03:510:03:53

Here's some nice calming music. Argh!

0:03:550:03:58

OK. OK.

0:03:590:04:01

OK.

0:04:010:04:02

-CLEARS THROAT

-Wally Norman just phoned.

0:04:020:04:05

Let me guess. He's got a sort throat and he can't do the show?

0:04:050:04:09

Tonsils like a razor blade, he said.

0:04:090:04:11

Odd how everyone's come down sick at the same time.

0:04:110:04:15

They're not sick, sick, Egg.

0:04:150:04:17

They just don't want to be associated with a failure.

0:04:170:04:20

Look, even the worms are trying to get out!

0:04:200:04:23

Mum, too, was being visited by a ghost from the past -

0:04:230:04:27

self doubt.

0:04:270:04:28

-You know what we need?

-What?

0:04:280:04:29

Expert advice.

0:04:290:04:31

We'll be working on the three imperative Ps -

0:04:330:04:36

persona, presentation and profile.

0:04:360:04:39

Mrs L?

0:04:390:04:40

Stay with us.

0:04:400:04:42

As a last resort, if the audience won't come to you,

0:04:420:04:46

we'll take you to your audience.

0:04:460:04:49

This is a caravan, right?

0:04:500:04:52

With Sasha's three Ps in mind,

0:05:000:05:02

Mum was ready to take the radio station to the people.

0:05:020:05:05

Persona, presentation, profile.

0:05:050:05:08

BANG

0:05:090:05:11

Other words that begin with P? Puncture.

0:05:110:05:13

And also, pileup.

0:05:130:05:16

SHE GASPS

0:05:190:05:21

We Leonards had a habit of breaking down outside Streeton's Car Yard.

0:05:210:05:25

Serendipity, Joy.

0:05:250:05:27

This is the perfect spot for an outside broadcast.

0:05:270:05:32

Prime position, lots of passers-by,

0:05:320:05:35

plenty of friendly people.

0:05:350:05:37

This may come as a surprise to you,

0:05:400:05:42

but the data I've collected points to one conclusion.

0:05:420:05:45

First, you knew all about Marjorie's telescope

0:05:450:05:48

and her motorbike.

0:05:480:05:50

They are classic models...

0:05:500:05:52

But, there's more.

0:05:520:05:55

Ah, see! You and Marjorie share the same favourite smelly cheese -

0:05:560:06:01

Roquefort.

0:06:010:06:03

Well, yes, us and 65 million other French people

0:06:030:06:08

And...you share an uncanny likeness to...

0:06:080:06:13

...Marjorie herself.

0:06:140:06:15

We do have the same moles, I guess.

0:06:150:06:20

But, my major breakthrough came when I realised that,

0:06:200:06:23

if you reassemble the letters of your name - Joe Ramir -

0:06:230:06:27

you get...

0:06:270:06:29

-Marjorie.

-Which caused me to think about the notion of reassembly,

0:06:290:06:33

which brought me to the conclusion that...

0:06:330:06:35

you are, in fact, the reassembly of Marjorie's old molecules.

0:06:350:06:42

-How can that be?

-Marjorie called her column Back To The Stars, right?

0:06:440:06:49

She must have been around the universe at least twice by now.

0:06:490:06:52

And we both know that light and time bend in space.

0:06:520:06:55

Exactly.

0:06:550:06:57

Which means that Marjorie's molecules must have returned to Angelus

0:06:570:07:01

and rearranged themselves back into you.

0:07:010:07:04

All right.

0:07:060:07:07

I'm Marjorie.

0:07:090:07:10

-Welcome back.

-Thanks, Phil.

0:07:150:07:19

It's good to be back.

0:07:190:07:20

But wait one millisecond.

0:07:240:07:27

If Marjorie - a girl - was rearranged into me - a boy -

0:07:270:07:32

then one day it will be your turn for molecular rearrangement, too.

0:07:320:07:36

-Which means you...

-I could return as a girl!

0:07:380:07:41

I don't know anything about being a girl.

0:07:440:07:47

How can I function? How can I work?

0:07:470:07:50

Don't worry, Phil, we'll carry out some research, get you prepared.

0:07:500:07:55

Research, right.

0:07:550:07:57

Let's do it.

0:07:570:07:58

Listen to this.

0:07:580:08:00

"Our dance will have to wait a few more months. Just got word -

0:08:000:08:03

"we're heading to a place called Long Tan."

0:08:030:08:07

Looks like the last words Len wrote.

0:08:070:08:10

55 Hinkley Street.

0:08:100:08:13

Sheena's must be next door.

0:08:130:08:15

Perhaps not any more.

0:08:170:08:19

Shame. So...can we go surfing?

0:08:210:08:25

Wait. Len wrote about a big old tree where they first met.

0:08:260:08:31

Definitely the right place.

0:08:360:08:37

'This can't be happening.'

0:08:440:08:45

I should never have let you go. You're my one and only.

0:08:450:08:48

'Change the channel - quick!'

0:08:480:08:50

Welcome back to VTV,

0:08:510:08:53

where it's non-stop Vicki Streeton, all day, every day.

0:08:530:08:56

You all right?

0:08:580:08:59

-I'm fine. Totally fine.

-OK!

0:08:590:09:03

You're acting totally weird.

0:09:030:09:05

Perhaps you need a surf to set you straight?

0:09:050:09:08

I'm fine, but...you go. You can use my board if you like.

0:09:080:09:11

Maybe there's someone around here that knows where Sheena's gone.

0:09:110:09:16

Well...I'm going surfing.

0:09:160:09:17

'The thing is, I had to find Sheena.

0:09:190:09:22

'Maybe then I could get Vicki out of my head.'

0:09:220:09:25

I'm going to need a much bigger allowance.

0:09:290:09:31

Have you seen all this stuff girls need to buy?

0:09:310:09:34

Cleanser, toner, exfoliating cream, moisturiser, foundation,

0:09:340:09:38

eye shadow, eye-liner, lip gloss!

0:09:380:09:41

And look at all this crockery -

0:09:410:09:44

C-cup, D-cup, B-cup! Girls must drink a lot of tea.

0:09:440:09:49

We're going to need some real-life cases to do this one.

0:09:500:09:54

And record them.

0:09:540:09:55

I've asked around, but no-one's heard of anyone called Sheena.

0:09:550:09:59

There's no-one in the computer

0:09:590:10:01

I don't know what else to do, apart from keep the letters

0:10:010:10:04

in case she turns up.

0:10:040:10:05

I've got to get rid of them - they're messing with my head.

0:10:050:10:08

Once place is worth trying - where large groups of senior citizens

0:10:080:10:12

congregate each week.

0:10:120:10:13

Two ducks on the water - 22!

0:10:130:10:16

Same age as your classic Sedan, Mrs Nolan - 22.

0:10:160:10:20

It's a good little turn out, Mr Streeton.

0:10:200:10:23

-Just one interruption...

-11.

0:10:230:10:26

Legs 11. That's how many interested buyers I could find, Mrs Nolan.

0:10:260:10:30

SARGE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:10:300:10:32

If you don't mind.

0:10:360:10:38

Thank you. Thank you, ladies and...gent.

0:10:420:10:46

Some lost letters have come into my Lockie's possession

0:10:460:10:49

and we're trying to find the intended recipient.

0:10:490:10:52

-I'm wondering if there is a Sheila...

-Sheena. Sheena.

0:10:520:10:55

A Sheena in the hall this afternoon.

0:10:550:10:57

CHATTERING

0:10:570:10:59

Maybe we could jog your memory. Lockie.

0:11:020:11:04

Lockie, maybe you could read one of the letters.

0:11:070:11:10

I'll leave it with him.

0:11:130:11:15

Thank you.

0:11:150:11:16

LOCKIE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:11:180:11:20

"My dear Sheena,

0:11:200:11:22

"It's been three long months since we parted,

0:11:220:11:26

"and I miss you more and more each day."

0:11:260:11:29

She's here.

0:11:290:11:30

-Who's here?

-Vicki.

-I thought you were looking for Sheena.

-I am.

0:11:300:11:35

Lockie, it's me.

0:11:350:11:36

Looks like you've seen a ghost, Leonard.

0:11:360:11:40

It was right about this point that I realised Vicki's ghost was real.

0:11:400:11:44

So I decided to say a civilised "hello".

0:11:440:11:48

Unfortunately, my legs had a different idea.

0:11:480:11:51

Lockie, wait.

0:11:530:11:55

Vicki, hi.

0:11:560:11:57

Sorry about that. I just wanted to catch Sarge before he, er...

0:11:570:12:03

So, what are you... What are you doing here?

0:12:030:12:07

One and only advantage of a private school - longer holidays.

0:12:070:12:10

But I...thought you liked your school.

0:12:100:12:13

It's not all bad...I suppose.

0:12:130:12:15

'Don't ask about Josh. Don't ask about Josh.'

0:12:150:12:18

So, how's Josh going?

0:12:180:12:19

'ARRRRGH!'

0:12:190:12:20

He's good, actually. He'll be here soon, in Angelus.

0:12:200:12:24

You know, for a visit.

0:12:240:12:26

'OK. But visiting as what? A friend, or more than a friend?'

0:12:260:12:30

So I thought maybe we could catch up while I'm here - all three of us.

0:12:300:12:34

'Yeah. Josh was definitely more than a friend.'

0:12:340:12:37

Come on, Kitten. No bargains here. This lot are all too healthy.

0:12:370:12:41

Bye, Lockie.

0:12:420:12:44

Sure, I'd...love to catch up.

0:12:460:12:49

And welcome to the Dental Hour with Joy Leonard,

0:12:490:12:54

filling in for Wally Norman.

0:12:540:12:56

Not that you WANT fillings, no way, not on your teeth!

0:12:560:13:00

No... Teeth are...

0:13:000:13:04

Teeth are like cars.

0:13:040:13:06

Yes. Teeth are just like cars.

0:13:060:13:09

If you take good care of them, you'll have them forever.

0:13:090:13:13

Take our car, Freda, for example...

0:13:130:13:16

-Hey, Vicki.

-How's it going?

-Good, yourself?

-Yeah, good.

0:13:160:13:21

You heard from Lockie?

0:13:210:13:23

Not lately. He's spending a lot of time with Mel, surfing.

0:13:230:13:26

I've been pretty busy with the radio.

0:13:260:13:29

-So how's it going?

-The best.

0:13:300:13:33

-JOY:

-No, don't waste your money on a brand new car. Save it.

0:13:340:13:39

Spend your cash on something much more important...

0:13:420:13:46

-like a washing ma...

-I am a patient man but I want this out of here!

0:13:470:13:51

-Dad?

-Sorry, Kitten, but they're scaring away my customers.

-Er...

0:13:510:13:54

I want you gone by the morning or I'll lodge an official complaint

0:13:540:13:59

on the grounds of noise pollution.

0:13:590:14:02

(So...) the Dental Hour. Whiter than white and brighter than bright.

0:14:050:14:10

And now, 53 minutes of non-stop smile music.

0:14:100:14:16

# This is a happy song

0:14:160:14:19

# It makes us smile And feel good inside

0:14:190:14:21

So...what's it like to be a girl?

0:14:220:14:26

Looking good - that's the key.

0:14:260:14:27

Then you'll have a much better chance of finding a rich husband

0:14:270:14:31

to look after you.

0:14:310:14:32

And tennis. A girl should be very good at tennis.

0:14:320:14:35

Confidence and independence.

0:14:350:14:37

Never rely on anyone else to do the job.

0:14:370:14:39

Know what you want and go get it.

0:14:390:14:41

I never leave home without a five-step plan up my sleeve.

0:14:410:14:44

Girls need thick skin, especially when it comes to boys.

0:14:440:14:47

One minute they like you and the next they can't talk to you.

0:14:470:14:52

Not to worry. Just move on.

0:14:520:14:57

Some much contradictory data.

0:14:570:15:00

How can being a girl involve so many things?

0:15:000:15:02

Well...

0:15:040:15:05

the real difference between boys and girls...

0:15:050:15:09

is girls have the ability to multitask.

0:15:090:15:12

True. We're always being asked to do many things at the same time.

0:15:120:15:17

For example, although I have three gorgeous children,

0:15:170:15:22

I also have to cook and wash and clean and 578 other things,

0:15:220:15:28

and all the while, be sensitive to everybody's individual needs.

0:15:280:15:34

-Inspiring, Mum. Very, very uplifting.

-And very, very informative.

0:15:340:15:39

-Oh, thank you.

-Exactly what we need on the radio.

0:15:390:15:42

The real you, Mrs L.

0:15:420:15:44

He's right. You're a brilliant girl.

0:15:440:15:46

You can talk to all the other girls out there.

0:15:460:15:50

Hello. Welcome back to...

0:15:520:15:54

Almost straight away, Mum's new show proved to be a hit.

0:15:540:15:57

Other mums, all across Angelus, started tuning in.

0:15:570:16:00

And thanks to Phillip's new-found multitasking skills,

0:16:000:16:03

Mum could devote more time at the radio station.

0:16:030:16:06

You gave up surfing for bingo.

0:16:120:16:15

When'd you get so old?

0:16:150:16:18

Been trying to find Sheena.

0:16:180:16:20

When I find her, the first thing I'll do is surf, promise.

0:16:200:16:23

It's just...these letters. they're doing weird things to my head.

0:16:230:16:28

OK. I'll help you find Sheena.

0:16:290:16:31

IF it'll make you act less weird.

0:16:310:16:34

Thanks, but I've pretty much done everything that can be done.

0:16:340:16:37

No, you haven't.

0:16:370:16:39

-I haven't?

-Your mum runs a local radio station.

0:16:390:16:43

You're trying to find someone in town. It's kind of obvious, really.

0:16:430:16:48

There's no way I'm going on the radio.

0:16:480:16:51

Fine.

0:16:520:16:53

Should I hang on to this, then?

0:16:530:16:57

'No. Dumb idea. Abort! Abort! What if Vicki's here?

0:17:040:17:07

'Or worse, with Josh?'

0:17:070:17:10

-All right?

-Yeah.

0:17:110:17:14

And coming up soon,

0:17:180:17:20

something special called Multitasking.

0:17:200:17:23

A show for all you girls out there.

0:17:230:17:27

MUSIC PLAYS

0:17:270:17:28

You know what, I think I might get Mum to read out the letters.

0:17:280:17:31

What? you're chickening out?

0:17:310:17:33

No, but why hang around here when we can be surfing? Come on.

0:17:330:17:36

'And while Mum read Len's letters, I managed to totally avoid Vicki...'

0:17:360:17:41

'..for all of two seconds.'

0:17:430:17:45

Vicki.

0:17:450:17:46

Hi.

0:17:460:17:47

-Hi.

-What a surprise. Again.

0:17:470:17:49

-JOY:

-Someone very special looking for someone very special.

-Ah.

0:17:490:17:54

So you're THE Vicki. I've heard lots about you.

0:17:540:17:57

-JOY:

-"It's been three months since we parted. I miss you..."

0:17:570:18:01

Oh, this is just Mel.

0:18:010:18:03

-JOY:

-Oh, we have a caller already.

0:18:040:18:07

Well, just Mel is just leaving. It was nice to met you.

0:18:070:18:10

You're shorter than I thought.

0:18:100:18:12

Shouldn't you go after her?

0:18:170:18:20

We've got a Sheena.

0:18:210:18:24

My real name's Esme, but Len called me Sheena.

0:18:300:18:35

-It was his special name for me, just between us.

-I don't get it.

0:18:350:18:41

You were at the bingo. Why didn't you come forward then?

0:18:410:18:44

I was doing the same thing I've done for the past 40 years -

0:18:450:18:49

trying to kid myself that I was over Len,

0:18:490:18:52

that he was long buried in the past.

0:18:520:18:55

Turns out he's not.

0:18:550:18:56

I'm sorry we read the letters before you did.

0:19:000:19:02

Oh, I've already read them.

0:19:030:19:05

Many times over.

0:19:050:19:08

I thought they fell off the boat.

0:19:080:19:10

No. No, they were delivered all right.

0:19:100:19:12

Every day, I'd wait for the postman

0:19:130:19:16

and I'd rarely be disappointed.

0:19:160:19:19

Then on 16th August 1966, Len wrote

0:19:190:19:25

threatening to take me dancing on the beach when he returned home.

0:19:250:19:28

It was the last letter I ever received.

0:19:290:19:31

'As it turned out, after Len was killed,

0:19:310:19:36

'Sheena decided she didn't want painful memories

0:19:360:19:39

'sticking in her brain forever.'

0:19:390:19:41

'She'd hoped throwing them into the sea would help her let go.'

0:19:470:19:50

Thank you for finding Len's letters.

0:20:150:20:17

time tells us when to let go the ones we've lost, but...

0:20:170:20:22

..that doesn't mean we ever need to forget them forever, does it?

0:20:230:20:26

The heart never forgets, right?

0:20:260:20:28

Thanks, Lockie. Bye.

0:20:310:20:33

Bye.

0:20:330:20:36

A drink to celebrate a successful girl research.

0:20:440:20:48

I'd love to, but I can't drink raspberry cordial.

0:20:500:20:54

This is a special ocassion.

0:20:540:20:56

And Marjorie - you - love raspberry cordial.

0:20:560:21:01

I can't drink it. I react to the colouring.

0:21:010:21:04

It makes me too loud.

0:21:040:21:06

Oh.

0:21:080:21:09

Oh.

0:21:090:21:11

Well, I guess that... that means that...

0:21:130:21:16

I'm not Marjorie after all.

0:21:160:21:18

Want to go for a snorkel?

0:21:310:21:33

Just Mel might give it a miss.

0:21:330:21:36

What about a fruit smoothie?

0:21:360:21:38

JUST...not that thirsty.

0:21:380:21:40

So JUST going to stay home.

0:21:400:21:44

Something wrong?

0:21:440:21:45

'I had a bit of making up to do with Mel,

0:21:470:21:50

'but at least I knew how to make someone else happy.'

0:21:500:21:53

'As for Vicki and me?'

0:22:030:22:05

'Some people are worth keeping

0:22:060:22:08

'in your treasure chest of memories forever.'

0:22:080:22:12
