ANDY WHISTLES

0:01:100:01:13

Hi, I'm Andy. I'm in charge of the prehistoric gallery

0:01:220:01:25

here at the National Museum.

0:01:250:01:27

My assistant, Jen, and I are working on a brand-new display

0:01:270:01:31

showing one of our distant relatives. Come and have a look.

0:01:310:01:34

-Hi, Jen. How're you getting on?

-Hi, Andy. Really good.

0:01:380:01:42

I'm just about to program the background. What would you like?

0:01:420:01:46

Oh, well, this is Australopithecus,

0:01:460:01:48

one of the first apes to ever walk upright.

0:01:480:01:51

They lived in Africa about three million years ago.

0:01:510:01:54

Ah, OK.

0:01:540:01:56

Africa.

0:01:560:01:58

Three million years ago.

0:01:580:01:59

How's that?

0:01:590:02:01

That's fantastic.

0:02:010:02:03

It's amazing what you can do with that.

0:02:030:02:05

I did notice there's a bit of hair missing on the side.

0:02:050:02:09

I found it in the store room. It must have fallen off.

0:02:090:02:12

I'll just glue it back on.

0:02:120:02:14

Right.

0:02:140:02:15

There.

0:02:200:02:22

I'll just tidy him up a bit.

0:02:220:02:24

And...there.

0:02:280:02:29

Now, it's complete. That looks great.

0:02:290:02:33

-Hello, you two.

-Oh.

0:02:330:02:35

-BOTH:

-Evening, Mrs Pickles.

0:02:350:02:37

I was wondering how you're getting on

0:02:370:02:39

-with the new Australopithecus display.

-Great. We're almost done.

0:02:390:02:43

Excellent. This is a very important display.

0:02:430:02:47

Australopithecus is a missing link

0:02:470:02:49

in the evolution of our very own species.

0:02:490:02:52

M-hm. Do you know, Jen, if you were to go back three million years

0:02:520:02:56

to see your ancestors, they'd probably look like that?

0:02:560:02:59

Well, I'll let you get on.

0:02:590:03:01

See you in the morning for the grand opening.

0:03:010:03:05

-BOTH:

-Goodnight, Mrs Pickles.

-See you in the morning.

0:03:050:03:08

Right, Jen. We've got a few things to do

0:03:080:03:11

-and then we can go home.

-Great.

0:03:110:03:13

-Huh?

-His hair's gone missing again.

0:03:130:03:17

-I only stuck it on a moment ago. Where's it gone?

-Erm...

0:03:170:03:20

We can't open the display like this. What would Mrs Pickles say?

0:03:200:03:24

I don't suppose they used to wear hats, did they?

0:03:240:03:27

No, I'm afraid not.

0:03:270:03:28

Maybe we could replace it with some other hair.

0:03:280:03:31

No, it's too late at this hour. There's just not enough time.

0:03:310:03:36

CLOCK CHIMES

0:03:360:03:38

PTERANODON SQUAWKS

0:03:400:03:42

Time.

0:03:430:03:45

That's it.

0:03:450:03:47

Jen, you stay here, I'll go get some more Australopithecus hair.

0:03:470:03:51

Time to go on a prehistoric adventure.

0:03:510:03:53

Erm... But, Andy, where are you going to find...

0:03:530:03:57

Australopithecus...hair?

0:03:570:04:00

Waistcoat, hat,

0:04:110:04:13

backpack, gizmo.

0:04:130:04:14

To the time of Australopithecus.

0:04:250:04:27

I've made it.

0:04:590:05:01

I've travelled back in time three million years

0:05:010:05:04

to the time of Australopithecus.

0:05:040:05:06

ROARING What was that?

0:05:060:05:09

Deinotherium.

0:05:090:05:11

The prehistoric relative to the elephant.

0:05:130:05:16

I better keep an eye on it.

0:05:160:05:18

They can get pretty...

0:05:180:05:19

DEINOTHERIUM TRUMPETS

0:05:200:05:23

..bad-tempered.

0:05:230:05:25

Whoa!

0:05:250:05:26

Oh! Oh!

0:05:420:05:43

Phew!

0:05:430:05:45

I should be safe in these trees.

0:05:450:05:47

This is also the perfect place to spot...

0:05:480:05:51

..Australopithecus.

0:05:530:05:54

Yes!

0:05:560:05:57

It's a small group of Australopithecus.

0:06:110:06:14

They're just relaxing in the forest.

0:06:140:06:17

Oh, they're grooming each other,

0:06:170:06:19

checking for bugs and nits.

0:06:190:06:22

That one looks like the leader.

0:06:220:06:25

I'll just go and ask him if they've got any hair for my display.

0:06:260:06:30

Ahem. Hello.

0:06:310:06:33

I'm Andy. I was wondering if you... AUSTRALOPITHECUS SCREAMS

0:06:340:06:38

Whoa. Sorry.

0:06:380:06:40

I'm sorry to bother you, I'm going now.

0:06:420:06:45

There's got to be another way I can get that hair.

0:06:480:06:51

I'm trying to keep my distance, so I don't scare them again.

0:07:020:07:07

I think they might be searching for food.

0:07:080:07:11

Although they better be careful that they're not somebody else's dinner.

0:07:140:07:19

Look! It's a Dinofelis.

0:07:190:07:21

Oh, a very dangerous predator.

0:07:210:07:25

AUSTRALOPITHECUS SCREAMS

0:07:250:07:27

I think they've spotted her. Ah, good.

0:07:270:07:30

Phew! I think she's gone.

0:07:340:07:35

Right. I'm going to try and catch up,

0:07:370:07:39

see if I can make friends with them. Come on.

0:07:390:07:42

They're grooming each other again. This is one of the things they do

0:08:010:08:05

to make friends and stay together as a group.

0:08:050:08:07

CRUNCHING

0:08:070:08:09

What was that?

0:08:090:08:11

Oh, no. It's the Dinofelis. And they haven't seen her!

0:08:110:08:15

Quick!

0:08:150:08:16

Look out!

0:08:230:08:24

It's the Dinofelis. Run!

0:08:240:08:27

AUSTRALOPITHECUS SCREAMS

0:08:270:08:29

Shoo, Dinofelis. Shoo!

0:08:400:08:42

Shoo!

0:08:440:08:45

Oh, look.

0:08:500:08:51

They're working as a team to scare the Dinofelis off.

0:08:510:08:54

THE AUSTRALOPITHECUS SCREAM

0:08:540:08:57

Good teamwork, Australopithecus.

0:09:070:09:11

Oh, and now that I've helped them scare the Dinofelis away,

0:09:130:09:18

it looks like the leader has accepted me into their group.

0:09:180:09:22

I think they want me to join in with what they're doing.

0:09:250:09:29

Erm... I've never really done this before.

0:09:290:09:32

Ah. Erm.

0:09:390:09:40

Huh. Huh-huh.

0:09:410:09:43

Erm... Maybe I'll use my comb.

0:09:430:09:45

There we go.

0:09:500:09:51

Ah, It's a real honour being accepted into the group like this.

0:09:520:09:57

Andy-lopithecus!

0:10:000:10:03

Look!

0:10:060:10:07

I've finally got the hair that I need to finish my display.

0:10:070:10:12

CLOCK CHIMES The clock!

0:10:140:10:18

Mrs Pickles is going to arrive at the museum any moment now.

0:10:180:10:22

Ah! How am I going to get back to the clock in time? It's miles away.

0:10:220:10:26

Erm... My backpack.

0:10:260:10:27

It's always full of useful things.

0:10:270:10:30

Huh? Where did I put it?

0:10:300:10:32

Oh, yes.

0:10:320:10:33

I left it over...

0:10:330:10:35

there.

0:10:350:10:36

Oh, no!

0:10:380:10:39

Vultures.

0:10:390:10:41

Oh, no! My backpack!

0:10:450:10:48

Oh!

0:10:480:10:49

AUSTRALOPITHECUS SCREAMS

0:10:530:10:55

Look! The leader's running in to scare them off.

0:10:550:10:58

Yes!

0:10:580:10:59

Brilliant! Thanks, Australopithecus.

0:11:040:11:08

Right, I need to find something that's going to get me

0:11:080:11:12

back to the clock quicker. Erm...

0:11:120:11:14

Flare?

0:11:160:11:17

No.

0:11:170:11:18

Rope.

0:11:200:11:21

Dog biscuits?

0:11:240:11:25

Oh! So, that's what the vultures were after.

0:11:270:11:30

It's not going to help me now though, is it?

0:11:300:11:33

Unless...

0:11:350:11:36

METAL CLINKS

0:11:380:11:40

Huh!

0:11:400:11:41

Huh! Ha-ha!

0:11:420:11:44

Here we go.

0:11:490:11:50

VULTURE CRUNCHES BISCUIT Yes!

0:11:560:11:59

Whoa!

0:12:000:12:03

Who-oaa!

0:12:030:12:08

Time to head back!

0:12:080:12:10

Mrs Pickles! Quick!

0:12:220:12:24

-Good morning, Mrs Pickles.

-Good morning, Jen.

0:12:360:12:39

I've just got time to visit the new Australopithecus display

0:12:430:12:47

-before the museum opens.

-Ah!

0:12:470:12:49

Oh!

0:12:550:12:56

I was just wondering, Mrs Pickles,

0:12:580:13:00

have you ever heard of a bald Australopithecus?

0:13:000:13:04

Bald?

0:13:040:13:05

Oh, I don't think so, Jen.

0:13:050:13:07

Why do you ask?

0:13:070:13:09

Oh, no reason, Mrs Pickles.

0:13:090:13:11

Oh, marvellous.

0:13:160:13:20

Australopithecus.

0:13:200:13:22

Our ancient ancestor.

0:13:220:13:24

What a fantastic display.

0:13:240:13:27

And you've got his hair just right, very neat and tidy.

0:13:270:13:31

You may want to get a shave before the museum opens though, Andy.

0:13:320:13:37

See you next time.

0:13:420:13:43

# One, two, three, four

0:13:560:13:58

# Andy's Prehistoric Adventures Andy's Prehistoric Adventures! #

0:13:580:14:04

Andy jumps into his time-travelling clock and heads back three million years, where he runs into some ancient primates and joins their tribe. Along the way, he helps them fend off a prehistoric big cat, before having his trusty backpack stolen by some hungry vultures.
