One rocket, one mission -

0:15:000:15:01

to search the universe for poetry, one rhyme at a time!

0:15:010:15:06

# The Rhyme Rocket! #

0:15:270:15:31

Rulebook, check.

0:15:330:15:35

First-aid box, check.

0:15:350:15:38

Let's play a game.

0:15:380:15:40

I'm not sure that's allowed according to the rules.

0:15:400:15:43

Go on, I'll start.

0:15:430:15:44

I spy with my rhyming eye,

0:15:440:15:47

something beginning with R.

0:15:470:15:51

-Rocket.

-Yeah.

0:15:510:15:53

Wow, you're really good at this. Here's another one.

0:15:530:15:56

-I don't think so. Look at the book, page 634...

-Oh, go on.

0:15:560:16:00

OK, one more.

0:16:000:16:01

I spy with my rhyming eye

0:16:010:16:04

something beginning with...R.

0:16:040:16:07

SIRENS SOUND Rulebook?

0:16:070:16:10

No, it's not the Rhyme Rocket rulebook.

0:16:100:16:12

This is really hard.

0:16:120:16:15

RADAR!

0:16:150:16:16

Yeah. How did you know it was radar, Commander?

0:16:160:16:20

Because it's going off. Get to it, Ditty.

0:16:200:16:23

Is there anyone out there?

0:16:230:16:25

Oh, yes, it's detected some poems.

0:16:250:16:28

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket!

0:16:280:16:31

-The coordinates suggest that they're coming from planet Earth.

-Excellent!

0:16:310:16:35

Now, let's not forget our mission,

0:16:350:16:37

to collect poems from across the universe.

0:16:370:16:39

One rhyme at a time!

0:16:390:16:42

So, come on, get going!

0:16:420:16:46

# Let's get this rocket started

0:16:480:16:50

# The engine runs on rhyme

0:16:500:16:53

# Poems are its fuel

0:16:530:16:55

# They get us there on time.

0:16:550:16:57

0:17:090:17:11

# Don't forget your seat belt

0:17:110:17:14

# It's going to be fast

0:17:140:17:16

# Switch, click, push, twist

0:17:160:17:18

# It's going to be a blast

0:17:180:17:21

THEY YELL

0:17:360:17:38

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

0:17:490:17:53

Aim.

0:17:530:17:54

Blame.

0:17:540:17:56

Name.

0:17:560:17:57

I've got a teddy and I called him Spotty.

0:17:570:18:00

-I've got a teddy and I hug him like this.

-Aww.

0:18:000:18:04

See you later.

0:18:040:18:05

Yeah, see you later.

0:18:070:18:09

-Can we play hide-and-seek?

-Shhh.

0:18:090:18:12

If I want to become the commander of my own ship

0:18:120:18:14

I have to follow the Rhyme Rocket rulebook

0:18:140:18:16

and it clearly states here, no games allowed.

0:18:160:18:20

No hide-and-seek,

0:18:200:18:22

no play,

0:18:220:18:23

no fun

0:18:230:18:24

in travel, transit or orbit of the sun.

0:18:240:18:28

It's here to keep us safe.

0:18:280:18:30

Sorry, Commander!

0:18:300:18:32

-I'll go and get the first-aid box.

-Ow!

0:18:320:18:35

I thought so, it's the rhyming pair planet.

0:18:350:18:39

Everyone on the lookout for aliens that rhyme.

0:18:390:18:42

Ball.

0:18:420:18:44

Wall.

0:18:440:18:45

Ball.

0:18:450:18:47

Wall.

0:18:470:18:49

Do you think these two aliens rhyme?

0:18:490:18:52

Yes. Ball.

0:18:520:18:54

Wall.

0:18:540:18:55

Excellent! More rhymes for the rocket.

0:18:550:18:58

Leaving the pair planet.

0:19:000:19:02

Heading for a poem next.

0:19:020:19:05

Bounce it.

0:19:070:19:09

Catch it.

0:19:090:19:10

Throw it.

0:19:100:19:12

Hit it.

0:19:120:19:13

Bat it.

0:19:130:19:15

Smack it.

0:19:150:19:16

-Flick it.

-Kick it.

0:19:160:19:17

Don't spread jam on it and lick it.

0:19:170:19:23

-Roll it.

-Bowl it.

0:19:230:19:25

Score a goal.

0:19:250:19:26

Over a net.

0:19:260:19:29

In a hole.

0:19:290:19:31

Don't put it in the goldfish bowl.

0:19:310:19:34

But toss it high.

0:19:340:19:36

Watch it fall.

0:19:360:19:38

Any size.

0:19:380:19:40

Large or small.

0:19:400:19:42

-Lots of fun.

-For us all.

0:19:420:19:44

Let's all play.

0:19:440:19:46

With a ball!

0:19:460:19:48

Let's all play with a ball.

0:19:480:19:49

-Let's have a kickabout.

-Absolutely not.

0:19:490:19:52

-It's far too dangerous.

-Says who?

0:19:520:19:54

Look, the book.

0:19:540:19:56

Rome Rocket health and safety, volume 7.

0:19:560:19:58

Gosh, how many volumes are there?

0:19:580:20:00

-31.

-So I can't play beach ball?

-No.

0:20:000:20:04

-So I can't play volleyball?

-No.

0:20:050:20:10

-So I can't play basketball?

-No.

0:20:100:20:12

-So I can't play football?

-Absolutely not. I can't let you.

0:20:140:20:18

If I want to command my own ship one day, I have to stick to the rules.

0:20:180:20:21

-I can smell something.

-Commander, watch out!

0:20:210:20:24

The balls.

0:20:240:20:25

-I'll go and get the first-aid box.

-Thank you, Ditty.

0:20:250:20:29

I can smell...a rhyme.

0:20:290:20:33

Ah, the rhyming pair planet.

0:20:330:20:36

Another ball to add to your collection, Professor.

0:20:360:20:39

Ball.

0:20:390:20:40

Wall.

0:20:400:20:42

There they are, they rhyme.

0:20:420:20:45

Ball.

0:20:450:20:47

-Wall.

-Woo hoo, yay!

0:20:470:20:51

Oh, no. Who's this?

0:20:510:20:53

Bee. Ball. Wall.

0:20:530:20:55

That doesn't rhyme.

0:20:550:20:57

Quick, get away!

0:20:570:20:59

Hang on, who's this?

0:21:030:21:06

Sea.

0:21:060:21:09

Bee.

0:21:090:21:10

Yes! They've found their rhyming pair.

0:21:100:21:15

Bee.

0:21:150:21:16

Sea.

0:21:160:21:18

More rhymes for the tank. Full speed ahead!

0:21:180:21:21

-What game can we play now?

-Nothing.

0:21:280:21:30

Remember the rulebook?

0:21:300:21:32

Anyway, the commander's about to activate the soundascope.

0:21:320:21:35

Let's see what sounds are out there in space.

0:21:350:21:38

CROWD CHEERS

0:21:450:21:47

Wow! It sounds like a football team celebrating a goal.

0:21:470:21:52

Win!

0:21:520:21:54

Win!

0:21:540:21:56

I'm the best football player in the universe.

0:21:560:22:00

If I score this penalty, I'll take the cup from First Officer Ditty.

0:22:000:22:05

Hang on, the sound's changing.

0:22:090:22:14

CROWD GROANS Oh, no, you missed.

0:22:140:22:17

Lose.

0:22:170:22:20

Lose?

0:22:200:22:22

It doesn't matter. It's the taking part that counts.

0:22:220:22:25

Now, here's someone who really can play football.

0:22:250:22:29

I'm cool, I am

0:22:310:22:32

I have magic feet

0:22:320:22:34

See me whizz along our street

0:22:340:22:37

When I play ball

0:22:370:22:38

All those that I meet

0:22:380:22:40

Stop to look at my magic feet

0:22:400:22:42

I can kick a ball To the end of the park

0:22:420:22:45

You won't find it till it gets dark

0:22:450:22:48

I can kick a ball and make it fly

0:22:480:22:50

Watch it vanish into the sky

0:22:500:22:52

So look at the magic of my flip kicks

0:22:520:22:55

Watch my feet

0:22:550:22:56

They do magic tricks.

0:22:560:22:58

# Rhyme Rocket Rhyme Rocket. #

0:23:000:23:05

Oh, no. The fuel tanks are low, we need more rhymes!

0:23:050:23:08

Commander, we're flying near the rhyme rock.

0:23:080:23:12

The rhyme rock! An incredible place where poetry is ace.

0:23:120:23:15

This is no time to rest, we need to beam up the best of performers.

0:23:150:23:20

-Ditty, beam up Vizzy Viz.

-Aye-aye, Commander.

0:23:200:23:23

It was the playground Olympics The big day

0:23:260:23:29

I trained hard Knowing I would take first place

0:23:290:23:31

So I strolled in ready to win

0:23:310:23:33

Then a voice called out "Let the games begin"

0:23:330:23:37

I wowed the crowd They all stood and watched

0:23:370:23:40

As I leapt every frog Bounced across the hopscotch

0:23:400:23:43

Went bonkers with a conker Smashed the others into bits

0:23:430:23:47

And nobody could catch me Playing ticky it

0:23:470:23:49

I was the quickest, the slickest I knew I'd be the winner

0:23:490:23:53

Mr Wolf couldn't eat me for dinner

0:23:530:23:56

I'd even beat the girls at their clapping games

0:23:560:23:58

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea And pat-a-cake

0:23:580:24:01

Next was hide-and-seek I thought, "Piece of cake"

0:24:010:24:04

Went to hide away in my secret place

0:24:040:24:08

And that's where I stayed In my hidden den

0:24:080:24:10

But nobody could find me Once I'd counted to ten

0:24:100:24:13

So they all went home Left me alone in the cold

0:24:130:24:17

I never won a medal Bronze, silver or gold

0:24:170:24:21

I was really sad at first

0:24:210:24:23

But I had to take heart

0:24:230:24:25

Cos winning isn't what matters

0:24:250:24:27

It's the taking part.

0:24:270:24:28

Thank you!

0:24:300:24:32

Quick, Ditty, we're flying out of range. Beam him back.

0:24:320:24:35

Hold your nose, and your clothes.

0:24:350:24:38

-Because sometimes they can fly off.

-Ditty!

0:24:380:24:41

Zoom!

0:24:460:24:47

When I play a game I always win.

0:24:510:24:53

Once we had a race around Planet Rhyme and I won.

0:24:530:24:57

That's only because I fell down a crater.

0:24:570:24:59

Officer Ditty, what is our destination?

0:24:590:25:02

The coordinates suggest we are heading towards

0:25:040:25:07

an Earthling school in Cardiff.

0:25:070:25:09

Is it games day? I'll fetch my ball.

0:25:090:25:13

0:28:090:28:11

Oh, we've had some great rhymes about games today.

0:28:120:28:16

I don't understand why you didn't play any.

0:28:160:28:19

The rules say we're not allowed to.

0:28:190:28:22

It says in the books. To keep us safe.

0:28:220:28:25

-Really? Well, I've replaced them with just one rule.

-What's that?

0:28:250:28:30

Play games whenever you like.

0:28:300:28:33

Hooray!

0:28:330:28:35

That's better.

0:28:380:28:40

After picking up a signal of rhyme activity from children in Cardiff the team blast off on a journey through the universe of words to join them.

Professor Poet is keen to try some new games along the way but first officer Ditty wants to stick to the rule book. As they zoom through space they pass a poem by Paul Cookson, and beam aboard out-of-this-world poet and performer Vizzy Viz.
