0:00:550:00:59

Hi. I'm Andy.

0:01:210:01:22

I work here in the prehistoric gallery of the National Museum.

0:01:220:01:26

I've spent all day working on a display about a giant dinosaur.

0:01:260:01:30

Wish he was here to help me now.

0:01:300:01:32

This bag of sand is really heavy.

0:01:320:01:34

-Oh.

-Hi, Andy!

-Oh, hi, Jen.

0:01:390:01:41

I've got that fan you asked for.

0:01:410:01:44

-Oh, could you put pop it over there and plug it in for me?

-Mm-hm.

0:01:440:01:47

Building a desert can be hot work.

0:01:470:01:50

-Oh, wow! This looks great.

-Oh, thanks, Jen.

0:01:500:01:55

These are dinosaurs called Gigantoraptors.

0:01:550:01:57

They lived in the desert around 85 million years ago.

0:01:570:02:01

They kind of look like giant chickens.

0:02:010:02:04

Well, actually, Gigantoraptors and chickens are distant relatives.

0:02:040:02:08

Oh. Now I'm confused.

0:02:080:02:10

-I thought you said these were dinosaurs, not birds.

-I did.

0:02:100:02:14

Some dinosaurs turned into birds. It took a long, long time.

0:02:140:02:18

-Millions and millions of years, in fact.

-Oh, wow.

0:02:180:02:21

-I'll never look at a chicken in the same way again.

-Right.

0:02:210:02:25

-I just need to put this down here.

-Oh, what's this?

0:02:250:02:29

Tumbleweed. An ancient plant that likes to roam around the desert.

0:02:290:02:33

-It still exists today.

-But plants don't roam, Andy.

0:02:330:02:36

-They're stuck in one place.

-This one can.

0:02:360:02:38

It's shaped like a ball so when the wind blows,

0:02:380:02:41

it breaks from its stem and rolls off, scattering its seeds.

0:02:410:02:45

That's why it's called tumbleweed.

0:02:450:02:47

-Because it tumbles about in the desert.

-Exactly.

0:02:470:02:50

I borrowed this from Mrs Pickles' plant collection.

0:02:500:02:53

But don't tell her.

0:02:530:02:55

-I'm going to surprise her tomorrow morning.

-My lips are sealed.

0:02:550:02:59

I think I'm going to get back to work.

0:02:590:03:01

Yes, and I think I need a blast of that fan.

0:03:010:03:03

-Right. Come on then, Jen, let's tidy up, then we can go home.

-OK.

0:03:370:03:41

Huh?

0:03:410:03:43

Oh... Where's the tumbleweed gone?

0:03:440:03:47

Well, it must be in here somewhere.

0:03:470:03:49

-We need to find it.

-Um...

0:03:490:03:51

What...? Oh, no, that tumbleweed belonged to Mrs Pickles.

0:03:560:04:00

If we've lost it, then she's going to be really upset.

0:04:000:04:03

Can we pick some more?

0:04:030:04:05

There's not enough time.

0:04:050:04:06

CLOCK STRIKES

0:04:060:04:09

Time...

0:04:130:04:15

-That's it!

-What's it?

0:04:150:04:18

Jen, you stay here and tidy up.

0:04:180:04:19

I'll be back soon with another tumbleweed.

0:04:190:04:22

Time to go on a prehistoric adventure!

0:04:220:04:25

But Andy, how will you...

0:04:250:04:26

..get more tumbleweed?

0:04:280:04:30

Waistcoat.

0:04:370:04:39

Check!

0:04:390:04:40

Hat.

0:04:400:04:42

Check!

0:04:430:04:44

Backpack.

0:04:440:04:46

Check!

0:04:470:04:48

And last but not least, gizmo.

0:04:480:04:50

GIZMO BEEPS

0:04:500:04:52

Check!

0:04:520:04:54

To the time of Gigantoraptor!

0:05:060:05:09

Oh!

0:05:190:05:21

Ah!

0:05:260:05:27

Woohoo!

0:05:280:05:30

Yes! I'm here.

0:05:420:05:44

I've travelled back in time 85 million years.

0:05:440:05:47

All the way to Mongolia.

0:05:490:05:51

To the time of Gigantoraptor.

0:05:510:05:54

It's hot here. And dry.

0:05:550:05:57

Which is the perfect place to find tumbleweed.

0:05:570:06:00

What is that?

0:06:070:06:10

It's a Saurornithoides,

0:06:160:06:18

a meat-eating dinosaur that used to hunt reptiles and mammals.

0:06:180:06:22

I wonder why she's just sitting there.

0:06:240:06:27

Oh!

0:06:290:06:30

She's on her nest.

0:06:320:06:33

Oh. Now she's burying the eggs.

0:06:340:06:36

Probably to keep them safe from predators

0:06:360:06:39

when she goes to get some food.

0:06:390:06:41

The gizmo said she was a meat eater.

0:06:440:06:46

But she seems to be tucking into those palm leaves.

0:06:460:06:49

Oh. Oh, that's clever.

0:06:520:06:55

She's using the palm leaves to disguise her nest.

0:06:550:06:58

Ha-ha.

0:06:580:06:59

Oh, she's off.

0:07:010:07:03

I've never seen a Saurornithoides egg before.

0:07:030:07:06

I think I've got time for a quick peek,

0:07:060:07:08

before I go and get the tumbleweed. Come on!

0:07:080:07:12

There we are.

0:07:160:07:18

All safe and sound.

0:07:180:07:19

DINOSAUR GRUNTS

0:07:210:07:22

What's that?

0:07:230:07:25

Hm, it's too small to be a Gigantoraptor.

0:07:250:07:29

It's an Oviraptor, coming this way.

0:07:290:07:32

I'd better take cover!

0:07:320:07:34

Oviraptors look like big birds, but they're actually dinosaurs.

0:07:380:07:42

The name Oviraptor means "egg-snatcher".

0:07:420:07:45

Oh, no! He's spotted the nest.

0:07:470:07:50

If he gets under those palm leaves, he'll gobble everything up.

0:07:510:07:55

Where's Mum?

0:07:580:08:00

If she doesn't get back soon, her eggs will be gone.

0:08:000:08:03

Uh-oh.

0:08:040:08:06

Oh, no, he's got one!

0:08:070:08:09

I've got to do something. Um...

0:08:090:08:11

Shoo! Shoo, egg-snatcher!

0:08:120:08:15

Go on. Get out of it!

0:08:150:08:17

Shoo!

0:08:170:08:18

OK. Don't worry.

0:08:260:08:27

Go on, back to your brothers and sisters.

0:08:270:08:30

Well, I'd say that's one "egg-cellent" result.

0:08:340:08:38

Look! Tumbleweed.

0:08:420:08:45

Come back here, tumbleweed.

0:08:480:08:50

Gigantoraptors!

0:08:510:08:53

These are one of my favourite dinosaurs.

0:08:530:08:57

Oh, they're incredible, aren't they?

0:08:580:09:00

They're about five metres tall, and eight metres long.

0:09:020:09:06

And they have these huge feathery wings,

0:09:060:09:09

but they're far too big to fly.

0:09:090:09:11

They use those wings to show off to each other.

0:09:140:09:17

Oh, I think she's impressed.

0:09:200:09:22

Oh, this is beautiful, look!

0:09:300:09:33

Now they're doing a special type of dance

0:09:330:09:35

to show how much they like each other.

0:09:350:09:38

Just like birds do in our day.

0:09:380:09:40

Oh, I'll show you.

0:09:420:09:43

These cranes dance to show off to each other too,

0:09:450:09:48

just like the Gigantoraptors.

0:09:480:09:51

You see?

0:09:550:09:57

Gigantoraptors really are the ancient relatives of modern birds.

0:09:570:10:01

Well, this is all lovely,

0:10:030:10:05

but it's not going to get me my tumbleweed, is it?

0:10:050:10:08

Hang on. There it is!

0:10:080:10:10

Finally!

0:10:180:10:19

I thought I was never going to catch up with it.

0:10:190:10:22

Oh, not again!

0:10:240:10:26

Come back!

0:10:260:10:27

Right.

0:10:370:10:39

I give up.

0:10:400:10:41

Can't move another...

0:10:430:10:46

step!

0:10:460:10:47

Finally.

0:10:480:10:50

Right, I'd better get this in my backpack

0:10:500:10:53

before it decides to go for another tumble.

0:10:530:10:56

Right.

0:10:560:10:57

CLOCK STRIKES

0:10:590:11:01

Perfect timing.

0:11:040:11:06

Now I can just head back to the museum.

0:11:060:11:08

Whoa, what are you doing?

0:11:080:11:10

Aah!

0:11:120:11:13

Oh!

0:11:130:11:14

How am I going to get out of this one?

0:11:140:11:17

Oh! My backpack!

0:11:180:11:20

It's always full of useful things.

0:11:200:11:22

Salt?

0:11:240:11:26

No.

0:11:260:11:27

Ketchup!

0:11:280:11:30

No.

0:11:300:11:32

Pepper!

0:11:320:11:33

How are these things going to help me?

0:11:330:11:36

I'm not having a picnic!

0:11:360:11:39

Unless... I've got an idea!

0:11:390:11:41

Pepper's also good for making Gigantoraptor...

0:11:410:11:45

SNEEZE!

0:11:450:11:48

Whoa!

0:11:480:11:50

Ah!

0:11:510:11:53

Ugh!

0:11:560:11:57

Gigantoraptor snot!

0:11:580:12:00

And I haven't got enough time to clean myself up.

0:12:020:12:05

Time to head back!

0:12:050:12:07

Quick! Mrs Pickles!

0:12:180:12:19

-Jen!

-Oh, Andy, thank goodness you're here!

0:12:400:12:43

Mrs Pickles will be here any second.

0:12:430:12:46

What's that on you?

0:12:460:12:47

Um... Even if I told you, you wouldn't believe me.

0:12:470:12:52

Morning, you two.

0:12:520:12:53

BOTH: Morning, Mrs Pickles.

0:12:530:12:56

Oh, what a lovely display.

0:12:560:12:58

The perfect setting for those two Gigantoraptors.

0:12:580:13:02

Oh, and is that my tumbleweed?

0:13:020:13:04

It looks right at home in that desert.

0:13:040:13:07

Nice and hot and dry. You don't look very dry, though, Andy.

0:13:070:13:11

-What is that you're covered in?

-Um...

0:13:110:13:14

Even if he told you, Mrs Pickles, you wouldn't believe him.

0:13:140:13:18

See you next time. Shh!

0:13:220:13:26

One, two, three, four!

0:13:410:13:42

# Andy's prehistoric adventures

0:13:420:13:45

# Andy's prehistoric adventures! #

0:13:450:13:49

When the museum's prized prehistoric tumbleweed goes missing, Andy heads back 85 million years in time to try and find some more. During his search he helps a mother dinosaur protect her nest and manages to get himself covered in dino snot!
