One rocket, one mission -

0:45:000:45:01

to search the universe for poetry,

0:45:010:45:04

one rhyme at a time!

0:45:040:45:06

# Blasting through the universe Rhyme connecting, song detecting

0:45:060:45:11

# The Rhyme Rocket!

0:45:260:45:27

# The Rhyme Rocket! #

0:45:270:45:29

# Blast off into the... ooh-oh... #

0:45:310:45:34

Oh! A pocket size rocket!

0:45:370:45:40

Cool!

0:45:400:45:41

Preparing for blast off in three, two, one...

0:45:410:45:44

Whoosh!

0:45:440:45:46

Careful, that's my transport collection.

0:45:460:45:48

And a very nice collection it is. Officer Ditty?

0:45:480:45:51

First Officer Ditty, actually.

0:45:510:45:53

How fast does the Rhyme Rocket zoom through space?

0:45:530:45:57

Slower than the speed of light, one hundred...

0:45:570:46:00

If we were to have a race, who would win?

0:46:000:46:02

-A race? What sort of race?

-Would it beat a shooting star?

0:46:020:46:06

Huff!

0:46:060:46:08

Well, I suppose it depends on the...

0:46:080:46:10

Would we outpace a racing car? Vroom!

0:46:100:46:13

What about a plane? Zzooom!

0:46:130:46:17

-Ha-ha!

-Ha-ha! Or a choo-choo train!

0:46:170:46:21

-Choo-choo! Choo-choo!

-Or a supersonic fall of rain.

0:46:210:46:24

ALARM

0:46:240:46:25

-A double-decker bus?

-Much slower than us.

0:46:250:46:28

A-ha! Officer Ditty!

0:46:280:46:31

First Officer Ditty.

0:46:310:46:32

Pay attention, it's the rhyme radar!

0:46:320:46:36

A message through the galaxy! It looks like Planet Earth to me!

0:46:360:46:40

BOTH: # Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket. #

0:46:400:46:44

Fire up the rhyme tanks and set a course.

0:46:440:46:47

Let's not forget our mission - collect poems across the universe.

0:46:470:46:51

ALL: One rhyme at a time!

0:46:510:46:53

Let's get going!

0:46:530:46:54

# Let's get this rocket started

0:46:590:47:01

# The engine runs on rhyme

0:47:010:47:03

# Poems are its fuel

0:47:030:47:05

# They get us there on time

0:47:050:47:08

-# Stand to attention -

-Yes!

0:47:080:47:11

-# Do your final checks -

-Check!

0:47:110:47:13

-# Go to the toilet -

-Flush!

0:47:130:47:15

# We're ready on the deck. #

0:47:150:47:17

Ooh!

0:47:170:47:19

Crew, blast-off positions!

0:47:190:47:22

# Don't forget your seat belt

0:47:220:47:25

# It's going to be fast

0:47:250:47:26

# Switch, click, push, twist

0:47:260:47:29

# It's going to be a blast. #

0:47:290:47:32

-Ten, nine...

-Communicate!

0:47:320:47:34

-Eight, seven, six, five...

-All systems live!

-Four...

0:47:340:47:40

-Three, two...

-Ready, crew?

-One!

0:47:400:47:43

ALL: Blast off!

0:47:430:47:45

Aah! Oh! Ooh!

0:47:450:47:48

Aah! Ooh! Aaaah!

0:47:500:47:55

BOTH: # Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket. #

0:48:000:48:04

Note.

0:48:040:48:06

-Goat.

-Bloat.

0:48:060:48:08

I don't apple bob in the school.

0:48:080:48:10

-That's when the apples float on the water.

-But I didn't get one.

0:48:100:48:14

Boat.

0:48:140:48:15

Float.

0:48:150:48:17

Note.

0:48:170:48:19

-I write notes to people when it's my birthday.

-I love birthdays.

0:48:190:48:23

You get cake.

0:48:230:48:25

BOTH: See you later!

0:48:250:48:28

We will see you later.

0:48:280:48:30

Oh, I can't wait to get to Earth!

0:48:300:48:32

Quack, quack, quack! Quack, quack! Baaa, baaa, baaa!

0:48:320:48:37

Baaa! Quack, quack! Moo, moo!

0:48:370:48:41

Professor, stop!

0:48:410:48:43

What are you doing?

0:48:430:48:45

I'm pretending to be a car or a train...

0:48:450:48:50

I don't know which one my favourite is!

0:48:500:48:52

But your noises don't sound quite right.

0:48:520:48:55

Planes don't bleat when they are in flight.

0:48:550:48:57

Trains don't go "Quack!" they go "Choo-choo!"

0:48:570:49:01

And as for cars, they don't go "Moo!"

0:49:010:49:05

But I'm pretending.

0:49:050:49:07

I have a place where I like to go.

0:49:070:49:10

It only makes sense to me, I know.

0:49:100:49:13

Where chickens go "Woof!"

0:49:130:49:15

Then say, "Hello, mate!"

0:49:150:49:18

Where buses have legs,

0:49:180:49:21

but they never run late.

0:49:210:49:23

Where trams are on sleighs,

0:49:230:49:27

and cats walk on stilts.

0:49:270:49:30

Where aeroplanes "Baaa"

0:49:310:49:33

But they also wear kilts!

0:49:330:49:36

But it's my pretend place

0:49:370:49:39

where I like to go

0:49:390:49:40

and it only makes sense to me, I know!

0:49:400:49:43

SNIFFING

0:49:430:49:45

I can smell a rhyme!

0:49:450:49:48

Oh, I thought so! It's the Rhyming Pair Planet!

0:49:490:49:53

Everyone on the lookout for aliens that rhyme.

0:49:530:49:56

Car.

0:49:560:49:58

Star.

0:49:580:50:00

Car... Star.

0:50:000:50:03

Do you think these two aliens rhyme? Yes!

0:50:030:50:06

-Car! Star! Excellent!

-Yoo-hoo! Ha-ha!

0:50:060:50:11

More rhymes for the rocket!

0:50:110:50:13

Leaving the Pair Planet!

0:50:130:50:16

Heading for a poem by Michael Rosen next!

0:50:160:50:19

Chugga, Chugga!

0:50:190:50:22

We're on a steam train trip,

0:50:220:50:24

we're on a steam train trip.

0:50:240:50:26

Listen to the whistle blow.

0:50:260:50:29

Pip! Pip! Pip!

0:50:290:50:30

Listen to out steam train.

0:50:300:50:32

Chuff! Chuff! Chuff!

0:50:320:50:34

Listen to our steam train.

0:50:340:50:36

Puff! Puff! Puff!

0:50:360:50:38

We wave out the window.

0:50:380:50:40

We wave to the cars.

0:50:400:50:43

And when it's getting dark

0:50:430:50:45

we wave to the stars.

0:50:450:50:47

Chuff! Chuff! Chuff!

0:50:470:50:49

Puff! Puff! Puff!

0:50:490:50:51

Pip-pip! Pip-pip! Pip-pip!

0:50:510:50:54

Wheeeeeeeeee!

0:50:540:50:56

There's a lot of rhymes out there.

0:50:560:50:59

And a lot of sounds. Let's activate the sound-o-scope!

0:50:590:51:02

Oh, I really like this bit!

0:51:020:51:05

LOUD ENGINES

0:51:090:51:10

Oh, it sounds like a racing car!

0:51:100:51:13

Go! Go! Go!

0:51:150:51:19

Watch your speed!

0:51:190:51:22

Hang on, the sound is changing.

0:51:220:51:25

SIREN

0:51:250:51:29

It sounds like a police car.

0:51:290:51:30

Stop! Stop! Stop!

0:51:300:51:33

He-he. I told you you were going too fast.

0:51:330:51:36

Look! I'm not moving at all.

0:51:360:51:38

But this little boy is!

0:51:380:51:40

William went up in a rocket

0:51:420:51:44

to see where it would go.

0:51:440:51:46

It flew round and round and round the sun

0:51:460:51:49

and burnt his left big toe.

0:51:490:51:51

Then he flew round the moon

0:51:510:51:53

to see if it was made of cheese.

0:51:530:51:55

He crashed landed in some Camembert

0:51:550:51:57

and William hurt his knees.

0:51:570:51:59

Then he flew round the Milky Way

0:51:590:52:01

and caught a trail of stars.

0:52:010:52:03

He brought them home to his cosy house

0:52:030:52:06

where he keeps them safe in jars.

0:52:060:52:09

Very good! More rhyme for our tanks!

0:52:110:52:15

Oh, it's the Rhyming Pair Planet! I like this one!

0:52:150:52:18

I wonder how many rhyming pairs we'll see this time!

0:52:200:52:23

Car! Star!

0:52:230:52:26

There they are! They rhyme!

0:52:260:52:29

Car! Star!

0:52:310:52:34

Yoo-hoo! Yeah!

0:52:340:52:36

Oh, no! Who's this?

0:52:360:52:38

Car... Star...

0:52:380:52:41

-Bed! That doesn't rhyme!

-Aaaah!

0:52:410:52:43

Quick! Get away!

0:52:430:52:45

Hang on, who is this?

0:52:470:52:49

Bed. Red.

0:52:490:52:51

-Yes, they found a rhyming pair!

-Yeah!

0:52:510:52:54

Red.

0:52:540:52:56

Bed.

0:52:560:52:58

Bed. Red.

0:52:580:53:00

-More rhymes for the tank. Full speed ahead!

-Yoo-hoo!

0:53:000:53:04

Look, crew, look! The Rhyme Rock!

0:53:080:53:11

An incredible place where the poetry is ace.

0:53:110:53:15

Performers eager to take centre stage.

0:53:150:53:17

To help us boost our fuel gauge.

0:53:170:53:20

Officer Ditty, ready the transporter

0:53:200:53:22

and beam aboard today's performer, Chief Chebe!

0:53:220:53:25

Aye-aye, Commander!

0:53:250:53:27

# When I was born I used to cry and cry

0:53:300:53:34

# My mother used to say "My son! Don't cry!"

0:53:340:53:38

# She picked me from the ground And tied me to her back

0:53:380:53:42

# She carried me to the farm Along a little track

0:53:420:53:46

# When I was a baby I crawled on the ground

0:53:460:53:50

# When I was one I took My first steps in the compound

0:53:500:53:54

# When I was two I walked to the borehole

0:53:540:53:57

# When I got to the borehole I fetched some water with my bowl

0:53:570:54:01

# When I was five I cycled to the school

0:54:010:54:04

# On a very hot day I swam in the pool

0:54:040:54:08

# When I was ten I rode a donkey to the market

0:54:100:54:13

# When I got to the market

0:54:130:54:14

# I tied it to the gates and laughed like a clown

0:54:140:54:17

# When I was 20 I went on a bus to Accra

0:54:170:54:20

# When I got to Accra I learned to drive a car

0:54:200:54:25

# When I was 30 I flew to Glasgow On a jumbo jet

0:54:250:54:29

# Now that I'm 40... Shhhhhhh!

0:54:290:54:33

# I wish to fly in a rocket I wish to fly... Oooh! #

0:54:330:54:39

-Oh!

-Ah!

0:54:390:54:41

Thank you, Chief! That was grand!

0:54:410:54:43

-Now, you have flown in a rocket.

-Your wish is our command!

0:54:430:54:47

Time to beam him back down before we get out of range!

0:54:470:54:50

Hold your nose, Chief!

0:54:500:54:51

Next stop, Planet Earth!

0:54:530:54:56

Oh, I'll check the rhymenav.

0:54:560:54:58

Oh, it says we need to hone in on a transport museum

0:54:580:55:02

in a place called Belfast.

0:55:020:55:04

-This is where Earthlings put old modes of transport.

-Ah?

0:55:040:55:08

Ways of getting around - cars, trains, planes...

0:55:080:55:12

I get it! The perfect place to collect rhymes about transport.

0:55:120:55:17

DING-DONG

0:55:170:55:18

-TANNOY: Entering Earth's atmosphere.

-Aaaah!

0:55:180:55:21

Stand by for entry!

0:55:210:55:22

-Aaaah!

-Quiet, please! I have to make an announcement!

0:55:220:55:27

-DING-DONG

-Greetings, Earthlings.

0:55:290:55:33

DING-DONG

0:55:330:55:34

Hit the brakes!

0:55:340:55:36

Remember, crew, your job is to collect rhymes! Ready?

0:55:420:55:46

# The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round... #

0:55:460:55:50

Stop!

0:55:500:55:51

# Mou, mou, he-he. #

0:55:510:55:53

Don't tell me, Ditty, you rewired the flight deck this morning. Grrr!

0:55:530:55:57

I'll try again. Are you ready?

0:55:590:56:02

The wheels on the bus...

0:56:520:56:56

High, low.

0:56:560:56:57

I'm firing up the rhyme tanks.

0:57:280:57:31

Recruits, do one last thing for us!

0:57:310:57:35

# The Rhyme Rocket! #

0:57:590:58:02

Commander, I wonder what strange transport noises

0:58:020:58:05

the Professor will come up with next.

0:58:050:58:08

Maybe a car that goes "Quack, quack!"

0:58:080:58:11

-Quack! Ha-ha-ha-ha!

-Quack, quack!

0:58:110:58:14

-Or a train that goes "Woof! Woof!"

-Woof! Woof!

0:58:140:58:18

Oh, look, look.

0:58:180:58:19

I bet he goes "Moo! Moo!"

0:58:190:58:21

-Mooo!

-Moo!

0:58:210:58:23

Moo?

0:58:230:58:25

Everyone know buses don't moo.

0:58:250:58:28

They go "Vroom!" Vroom! Vroom!
