Whizz thinks it's whizzard when Bug's shape also seems rather more versatile than she'd ever imagined! Voice interrupts her excitement with the Earthsearch.

Paul McDowell reports this week on: The Yips' and How to Cure Them
When a top tennis player hits a run of bad form, a striker keeps on missing goal, or a golfer that vital putt, they call it 'the yips'. That is when they bring in the man who coaches the mind. Director BEA BALLARD Editor ERIC ROWAN

The boy treble Aled Jones is said to have one of the finest voices ever recorded. His brilliant career began only 12 months ago, and it will come to an end quite suddenly at any moment now. For, ironically, the treble voice is at its finest just before it breaks.
This film retraces the heady events of the past year: the tough training in the local choir, Aled's 'discovery' by conductor Neville Marriner , and the torrent of television appearances, records and concerts that followed.
One nail-biting audition turns into the battle for the crown, as Aled competes against the other top-rated trebles of the day. The most exciting moment of all comes when he's invited to sing a duet with his greatest hero, Stuart Burrows.
Now at 14, Aled has to contemplate an uncertain future as nature takes its course. As he says,'After all, none of this would have happened if my voice had broken when most other boys' do.'
