Officer Ditty, come and look through my new telescope.

0:00:350:00:39

-Moon and spoon.

-Yeah!

0:00:390:00:43

-It's amazing what you can see with this thing.

-Really? Hmm!

0:00:430:00:48

Er? I can only see a bit of orange.

0:00:480:00:51

-Officer Ditty, what are you doing?

-Sorry.

0:00:510:00:54

Professor's got a telescope and I was having a look.

0:00:540:00:57

If you want to be a commander, you have to remain alert.

0:00:570:01:01

-Yes, Commander.

-No time for hobbies like stargazing.

-Astronomy.

0:01:010:01:06

You need to keep your eyes and ears open.

0:01:060:01:10

Commander.

0:01:100:01:11

-Shimmering stars, they're on radar. Why didn't you say?

-I tried to.

0:01:110:01:16

Look! It's picking up a signal from some rhyme recruits on planet Earth.

0:01:160:01:21

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

0:01:210:01:25

Remember our mission to collect poems across the universe.

0:01:250:01:29

ALL: One rhyme at a time.

0:01:290:01:31

But I wanted to play with my telescope.

0:01:310:01:34

Professor, we're in space. Come on, move it.

0:01:340:01:37

You'll see galaxies of stars on the way.

0:01:370:01:42

# Let's get this rocket started

0:01:440:01:46

# The engine runs on rhyme

0:01:460:01:48

# Poems are its fuel

0:01:480:01:50

# They get us there on time

0:01:500:01:53

-# Stand to attention

-Yes

0:01:530:01:56

-# Do your final checks

-Check

0:01:560:01:58

-# Go to the toilet

0:01:580:02:00

# We're ready on the deck

0:02:000:02:04

# Blast off positions

0:02:040:02:07

# Don't forget your seatbelt

0:02:080:02:10

# It's going to be fast

0:02:100:02:12

# Switch, click, push, twist

0:02:130:02:15

# It's going to be a blast. #

0:02:150:02:17

Ten, nine...

0:02:170:02:20

-Communicate.

-..eight, seven,

0:02:200:02:22

-six, five...

-All systems live.

0:02:220:02:25

0:02:250:02:27

0:02:280:02:30

Ooh!

0:02:360:02:37

Aaaa!

0:02:370:02:40

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

0:02:450:02:48

Space.

0:02:480:02:50

Case.

0:02:500:02:51

-Face.

-I can pull a funny face.

0:02:510:02:55

I can pull a funnier face.

0:02:560:02:58

Ha-ha-ha!

0:03:000:03:02

Place.

0:03:020:03:05

Face.

0:03:050:03:07

Race.

0:03:070:03:08

At school we were at the egg and spoon race.

0:03:080:03:12

-Do you remember when we finished at the same time.

-Yes.

0:03:120:03:16

See you later!

0:03:160:03:18

Yes, we will. On course, Commander.

0:03:180:03:21

Well, thanks to our rhyme recruits,

0:03:210:03:23

we've got enough fuel to get to constellation Twinkle-Twinkle.

0:03:230:03:28

That star will look huge through my telescope.

0:03:280:03:31

You see, this magnifies what you see, whereas this,

0:03:310:03:35

magnifies what you say. Listen.

0:03:350:03:37

Quiet.

0:03:370:03:39

-I can't hear anything.

-Loud!

0:03:390:03:41

No! The commander's concentrating.

0:03:410:03:43

I shall demonstrate again.

0:03:430:03:45

-Don't.

-Quiet.

-I wouldn't, professor.

0:03:450:03:48

LOUD!

0:03:480:03:50

I can smell a rhyme.

0:03:520:03:54

I thought so, it's the Rhyming-Pair Planet.

0:03:560:04:00

Everyone on the lookout for aliens that rhyme.

0:04:000:04:03

Moon.

0:04:030:04:04

Spoon.

0:04:040:04:07

Moon, spoon.

0:04:070:04:10

Do you think these two aliens rhyme?

0:04:100:04:13

Yes! Moon. Spoon. Excellent.

0:04:130:04:19

More rhymes for the rocket. Leaving the Pair Planet.

0:04:190:04:22

Heading for a poem, next.

0:04:230:04:25

-Hubble.

-Bubble.

-Double.

-Lubble.

0:04:270:04:31

Aliens from Planet Trouble.

0:04:310:04:35

Watch us wriggle, bounce, and play.

0:04:350:04:38

We love making mess all day.

0:04:380:04:41

See us giggle. See us laugh.

0:04:410:04:44

Pouring custard in the bath.

0:04:440:04:48

We like to chomp on lots of chocs.

0:04:480:04:51

Jelly, ice cream, sweaty socks.

0:04:510:04:54

-Hubble.

-Bubble.

-Double.

-Lubble.

0:04:540:04:57

Aliens from Planet Trouble.

0:04:570:05:00

-Planet Trouble!

-I'm not looking for trouble.

0:05:020:05:05

-Have you been there?

-Yeah, been there, got the T-shirt.

0:05:050:05:10

Oh, and the rhyme.

0:05:100:05:11

What about the planet Saturn?

0:05:110:05:14

Oh, yeah. Boring. I went three times. The food was terrible.

0:05:140:05:19

But, the rings of Saturn make a really nice pattern.

0:05:190:05:23

-Professor poet.

-Oh, I see.

0:05:230:05:26

A poem.

0:05:260:05:28

The Moon in June looks like a prune.

0:05:280:05:31

Officer Ditty.

0:05:310:05:33

A ditty.

0:05:330:05:34

The people on Mars live in jam jars.

0:05:340:05:37

Professor, you want your telescope to look at this star.

0:05:370:05:42

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

0:05:480:05:51

How I wonder what you are.

0:05:510:05:55

Up above the world so high,

0:05:550:06:01

Like a diamond in the sky.

0:06:010:06:05

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

0:06:050:06:09

How I wonder what you are.

0:06:090:06:13

# Twinkle, twinkle, little star

0:06:190:06:23

# My dad drives a motorcar

0:06:230:06:26

# When he tries to go to town

0:06:270:06:30

# My dad's motorcar breaks down

0:06:300:06:33

# Twinkle, twinkle, little star

0:06:330:06:38

# My dad's car can't get that far. #

0:06:380:06:41

Ha-ha-ha!

0:06:410:06:43

Ah, the Rhyming Pair Planet, no car would make it there,

0:06:430:06:48

that's for sure.

0:06:480:06:49

Moon, spoon.

0:06:490:06:52

There they are! They rhyme.

0:06:520:06:55

Moon, spoon.

0:06:550:06:58

It's great, here, on the Rhyming Pair Planet.

0:06:580:07:02

Oh, no.

0:07:020:07:03

Who's this?

0:07:030:07:05

Moon? Spoon? Bee?

0:07:050:07:08

Ah!

0:07:080:07:09

That doesn't rhyme.

0:07:090:07:12

Quick, get away.

0:07:120:07:13

Hang on, who's this?

0:07:170:07:19

Sea?

0:07:190:07:22

Bee? Yes!

0:07:220:07:24

-Yeah!

-They found their rhyming pair.

0:07:240:07:28

-Bee, sea.

-Yeah!

0:07:280:07:31

Woo-hoo!

0:07:310:07:32

More rhymes for the tank.

0:07:320:07:34

Full speed ahead.

0:07:340:07:36

Woosh!

0:07:370:07:38

Look! Oh, look!

0:07:420:07:43

The Rhyme Rock. An incredible place where the poetry is ace.

0:07:430:07:48

Performers eager to take centre stage.

0:07:480:07:51

To help us boost our fuel gauge.

0:07:510:07:53

Officer Ditty, beam aboard Mr John Chase.

0:07:530:07:57

-Aye-aye, Commander.

-John Chase, he's definitely ace.

0:07:570:08:00

My mate, Malcolm, had the big wish,

0:08:030:08:07

To fly through the sky like a bird or a witch.

0:08:070:08:10

To get to the air, he tried a big push,

0:08:100:08:12

But without wings he fell in the bush

0:08:120:08:15

Next he thought of another idea,

0:08:150:08:17

Get a balloon and fill it with air.

0:08:170:08:20

He tied it up tightly onto a chair

0:08:200:08:22

Then climbed on the top for a spot of repairs.

0:08:220:08:25

He emptied his pocket trying not to pop it

0:08:250:08:28

Off they flew like a rocket.

0:08:280:08:30

In the sky lightning may shock it,

0:08:300:08:32

More frightening, How will he stop it?

0:08:320:08:35

Now he's spun. It started as fun,

0:08:350:08:37

If he goes on he'll be burnt by the sun.

0:08:370:08:40

He feels glum. What have I done?

0:08:400:08:42

And he hears, come. I can help you, old chum.

0:08:420:08:45

He soon sees the moon, Cool in space,

0:08:450:08:48

Sings, the Sun's too hot. Visit my place.

0:08:480:08:50

Malcolm shouts out, Help me get back!

0:08:500:08:53

Moon says, OK, I'll put you on track.

0:08:530:08:55

Moon pulls him And throws him in a dash,

0:08:550:08:58

A straight line, He's back in a flash.

0:08:580:09:01

He opened his parachute So not to crash,

0:09:010:09:03

-And touched down safe in the sea with a splash.

-Wooh!

0:09:030:09:07

That was out of this world.

0:09:070:09:09

We're heading out of range. We better beam you back.

0:09:090:09:13

-Officer Ditty?

-Aye-aye, Commander.

0:09:130:09:16

Hold your nose.

0:09:160:09:18

When you're back, check your pants aren't on your head. Ditty!

0:09:180:09:22

Zoom!

0:09:260:09:28

Imagine floating all the way to the moon.

0:09:300:09:33

-Forget the moon, Professor.

-That's right.

0:09:330:09:36

The map says we're heading for the Science Museum

0:09:360:09:40

-in the City of Edinburgh.

-It's where earthlings learn about space.

0:09:400:09:45

-They don't have rockets.

-No, so this is going to come as a surprise.

0:09:450:09:50

Entering Earth's atmosphere. Stand by for entry.

0:09:500:09:54

-Take your positions, quickly.

-Aaaa!

0:09:540:09:58

Aaaa!

0:09:580:10:00

0:10:000:10:04

Great. Now I can really focus on stargazing.

0:12:490:12:54

Oh, it's all black! There's no stars.

0:12:540:12:57

What do you mean no stars? There are billions out there.

0:12:570:13:02

You can even see Mars.

0:13:020:13:04

No! They've all gone.

0:13:040:13:06

They've been swallowed into a big black hole.

0:13:060:13:09

-Officer Ditty, if you would.

Professor Poet has a new telescope but his latest hobby of astronomy is interrupted when the team pick up a signal of rhyme activity from children in Edinburgh and blast off on a journey through the universe of words to join them.

As they zoom through space they pass a poem by Paul Cookson, sail past the planet Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and beam aboard out-of-this-world performer Jon Chase.
