Aagh! Sid, if you want to dance you only have to ask.

0:01:070:01:11

-Don't creep up on me.

-I don't want to dance.

0:01:110:01:15

-What's this?

-This was a house of cards.

0:01:150:01:19

Aren't they meant to stand on top of each other?

0:01:190:01:21

-Yes they are(!)

-Good luck with that. I can't stand around chatting.

0:01:210:01:25

-You know what today is don't you?

-No.

-It's dance competition day.

0:01:250:01:29

-Eh?

-I entered that competition.

0:01:290:01:33

-I have to invent a dance and the best one wins first prize.

-Oh, yeah.

0:01:330:01:38

The only thing is I don't think I've got a good enough dance yet.

0:01:380:01:41

I am sure you will come up with something.

0:01:410:01:44

I could try this.

0:01:440:01:46

0:02:100:02:14

-Oh, no, you've done it again.

-I am so sorry.

0:02:140:02:18

I can't use that one either.

0:03:160:03:18

Look there's the dressing up room.

0:03:180:03:21

# Let's play. #

0:03:210:03:24

This is really exciting.

0:03:240:03:26

Let's find out what we're playing today.

0:03:260:03:29

I've got a cowboy's hat, a footballer's kit

0:03:330:03:37

and diver's flippers.

0:03:370:03:39

I am not going to ride a horse playing football in the sea.

0:03:390:03:42

Let's try something else.

0:03:420:03:45

I've got on a long tunic, sandals and a special headdress.

0:03:480:03:54

Can you guess what we are playing today? I know.

0:03:540:03:59

We are playing ancient Egyptians which means

0:03:590:04:01

we get to go back in time.

0:04:010:04:03

What do we need to know?

0:04:030:04:06

First of all, the ancient Egyptians lived a long time ago

0:04:060:04:10

in a hot country called Egypt.

0:04:100:04:13

When ancient Egyptians wrote words,

0:04:130:04:16

they sometimes used pictures called hieroglyphs.

0:04:160:04:19

They didn't have money like we do.

0:04:190:04:23

Instead they often paid for things using jewellery they were wearing.

0:04:230:04:28

They built big pointy buildings out of stone.

0:04:280:04:31

They were called the pyramids. Royal ancient Egyptians

0:04:310:04:34

were buried inside them.

0:04:340:04:36

They were often filled with lots of treasure and guarded.

0:04:360:04:40

No-one was allowed up them alone.

0:04:400:04:42

That is everything we need to know. Do we need anything else?

0:04:440:04:47

Oh. A gold ring. It fits my finger.

0:04:490:04:54

I'll take it with me.

0:04:540:04:56

We've got everything we need. Let's go.

0:04:560:04:59

Hey, Rebecca, you'll never guess...

0:05:020:05:05

-Oh, how did you do that?

-You have to have very steady hands.

0:05:050:05:11

-Yes, I have, but your dancing kept knocking...

-Watch the cards.

0:05:110:05:15

-There you go.

-Why are you wearing a dress?

-It is not a dress.

0:05:150:05:20

It is a tunic. And look at my head.

0:05:200:05:23

We are going to play ancient Egyptians.

0:05:230:05:25

-I was I was playing ancient Egyptians.

-Wish me luck.

-Good luck.

0:05:250:05:29

-While you are gone I will practice my dance.

-Right.

0:05:290:05:32

What do you think of this?

0:05:320:05:33

MUSIC PLAYS

0:05:330:05:35

Not bad. I will leave you to carry on practising.

0:05:350:05:39

-See you later.

-See you later.

0:05:390:05:41

Come on let's play ancient Egyptians.

0:05:410:05:45

Ho-ho! Yes!

0:05:490:05:52

Whoa! So this is ancient Egypt. It's hot here and sandy.

0:05:570:06:04

I love the feeling of sand between my toes.

0:06:040:06:09

HOOTER

0:06:090:06:10

Hot, hot, hot! I need to put my sandal back on.

0:06:100:06:15

HOOTER

0:06:150:06:16

Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot!

0:06:160:06:19

Phew! That's better. Look, a lizard! A little lizard.

0:06:190:06:25

I wonder where he is going. Come on, let's follow him.

0:06:250:06:29

Look, a river! I bet it's nice and cool. Yes, lovely.

0:06:320:06:38

And a huge house.

0:06:380:06:41

This must be a palace. Someone very important must live here.

0:06:410:06:44

Come on, let's get out of this heat and into the shade.

0:06:440:06:47

That is much better. Much cooler.

0:06:490:06:54

-Ooh!

-Sphinxy, Sphinxy where are you?

-Who's that?

0:06:540:07:00

Sphinxy, Sphinxy, Sphinxy, come to Mummy, little Sphinxy baby.

0:07:000:07:06

-Hello, my name is Sid.

-Come on then.

-Come on then what?

0:07:060:07:12

-Help me find Sphinxy. You do work for me, don't you?

-I guess I must do.

0:07:120:07:17

-Come on then.

-Coming.

-Here, Sphinxy.

-Sphinxy. Here, Sphinxy.

0:07:170:07:21

Where are you?

0:07:210:07:23

MIAOW

0:07:230:07:25

Ssh. I heard her.

0:07:250:07:27

-Heard who?

-Sphinxy.

-Something I have been meaning to ask you.

0:07:270:07:31

Who is Sphinxy?

0:07:310:07:33

My cat.

0:07:330:07:34

-Right, a cat!

-MIAOW

0:07:340:07:37

Yes, my cat. Sphinxy, there you are.

0:07:370:07:42

Where have you been? Now I have another job for you to do.

0:07:420:07:46

-Who are you exactly? Are you very important?

-Important? I am the boss.

0:07:460:07:51

The big cheese. Numero uno.

0:07:510:07:56

I am the Pharaoh.

0:07:560:07:59

-When I say I have a job for you to do, you do it.

-Right.

0:07:590:08:02

What would you like to me do, Your Majesty Pharaoh person?

0:08:020:08:06

I have been very busy ruling all of Egypt.

0:08:060:08:10

Sandals to arrange, sand to count, all that kind of stuff.

0:08:100:08:15

I need you, dear servant, to do my shopping for me.

0:08:150:08:19

-You do shop, don't you?

-Yes, I love shopping.

0:08:190:08:22

She must be kind of important if she is the ruler

0:08:220:08:24

of all of ancient Egypt.

0:08:240:08:26

My people have been building a pyramid in my honour.

0:08:260:08:29

-It will be finished today.

-A pyramid?

-Yes.

0:08:290:08:33

-A big pointy building made out of stone.

-Yes of course.

0:08:330:08:36

You need to get the shopping by today as they are very hungry.

0:08:360:08:40

Great! I have always wanted to see a pyramid.

0:08:400:08:42

Tell you what. I will get my shopping list. I'll be back.

0:08:420:08:46

-Woah! This is the heaviest shopping list in the world.

-Don't worry.

0:08:480:08:55

You'll get used to it.

0:08:550:08:57

I want you to get everything on that shopping list before sunset.

0:08:570:09:01

My pyramid builders are very hungry and if you don't I'll...

0:09:010:09:06

I'll make you do all my washing-up.

0:09:060:09:08

-I don't want to do your washing-up.

-No, you don't.

0:09:080:09:11

-It hasn't been done for a whole year and it is very smelly.

-Eugh!

0:09:110:09:17

MIAOW

0:09:170:09:18

There you are.

0:09:180:09:19

Come on, Sphinxy, I have got some lovely fish for your tea.

0:09:190:09:22

Come on, lovely.

0:09:220:09:25

Right, let's have a look at this shopping list. Oh dear.

0:09:250:09:28

This list is written in funny words. Excuse me, bossy Pharaoh person,

0:09:280:09:33

I can't seem to read your shopping list.

0:09:330:09:36

Oh dear. If I can't read the shopping list

0:09:360:09:38

I can't do the shopping.

0:09:380:09:39

If I can't do the shopping I'm going to have to do all the washing-up.

0:09:390:09:43

Oh no!

0:09:430:09:44

Hold on. I know. I remember - do you? Yes. That's right.

0:09:440:09:50

Egyptians, when they were writing words, sometimes used pictures

0:09:500:09:54

called hieroglyphs.

0:09:540:09:56

So these aren't funny words, these are pictures.

0:09:560:09:59

Let's have a look. There is a picture of a loaf of bread.

0:09:590:10:04

That is a picture of some fish. These are some grapes. Great.

0:10:040:10:08

These are all the things we need for the builders' lunch. Let's go shop.

0:10:080:10:14

Right, which way are the shops? That way.

0:10:160:10:19

# Let's play. #

0:10:210:10:23

Hello! Excuse me, could you tell me where I could do my shopping please?

0:10:230:10:27

Shopping? Shopping?

0:10:270:10:30

Why, yes, I can certainly help you with your shopping. Walk this way.

0:10:300:10:35

OK. Right, I need some bread, fish and grapes please.

0:10:350:10:40

Bread, fresh, and grapes?

0:10:400:10:41

I can do better than that, my friend.

0:10:410:10:45

How about a lovely rug

0:10:450:10:50

or a nice camel or even some tasty spices?

0:10:500:10:54

-The pyramid builders don't want to eat that.

-Of course not.

0:10:540:10:58

Not to worry. I have the very thing. Walk this way.

0:10:580:11:03

MUSIC

0:11:030:11:06

-Ha-ha! That was brilliant!

-Right.

-So, bread, fish and grapes?

0:11:110:11:18

Better than that. Much better.

0:11:180:11:20

How about a very fine musical instrument?

0:11:260:11:30

SHE PLAYS A TUNE

0:11:300:11:33

No, I would just like some bread, fish and grapes.

0:11:330:11:37

You are clearly a man who knows what he wants. I have the very thing.

0:11:370:11:44

At last.

0:11:440:11:45

-Behold...sandals.

-What?

-The finest in whole of Egypt.

0:11:520:11:58

I don't want camels, I don't want rugs, and I don't want spices.

0:11:580:12:03

I do not want musical instruments. I definitely do not want sandals.

0:12:030:12:07

What I want are bread, fish and grapes.

0:12:070:12:10

bread, fish, and grapes. Why didn't you say so?

0:12:100:12:17

Here we go.

0:12:170:12:20

-Bread, fish and grapes.

-Thank you very much.

0:12:220:12:26

That comes to...

0:12:260:12:29

RING!

0:12:290:12:31

That's rather a lot.

0:12:310:12:34

Oh! Money. Yes. I don't suppose you could give me this food?

0:12:340:12:38

THEY LAUGH

0:12:380:12:42

-You are a funny man, you really are.

-I haven't got any money.

0:12:440:12:48

Well, you haven't got any bread, fish or grapes.

0:12:480:12:50

Oh no! I really haven't got any money.

0:12:500:12:53

If I don't get that shopping

0:12:530:12:55

I am going to have to do all the washing-up - a whole year's worth.

0:12:550:12:58

Oh no!

0:12:580:13:00

Yes! I know. I remember - do you?

0:13:000:13:04

Ancient Egyptians often paid for things with jewellery.

0:13:040:13:08

I will pay with jewellery. Only I haven't got any.

0:13:080:13:11

Ah! The ring!

0:13:110:13:13

I will use this.

0:13:130:13:15

Excuse me. One gold ring.

0:13:150:13:18

A gold ring. That'll do nicely.

0:13:180:13:25

-Bread, fish and grapes.

-Fantastic.

0:13:250:13:28

-Can you tell me where the pyramids are?

-Pyramids?

0:13:280:13:31

-Yes, tall pointy things made out of stone.

-I know what they are.

0:13:310:13:35

-They are over there in that direction.

-Thanks.

0:13:350:13:37

Come back. You forgot your change.

0:13:370:13:40

Oops. Excuse me. I am really hungry. Nearly finished.

0:13:490:13:55

Building a pyramid is very hard work.

0:13:550:13:59

But we love our Pharaoh and we want to build a pyramid in her honour.

0:13:590:14:03

And because if we don't she will make us do her washing-up

0:14:030:14:06

and there is a lot of it. And it's very smelly.

0:14:060:14:10

I could do with some bread. Or maybe some fish.

0:14:100:14:15

Or even the odd grape.

0:14:150:14:18

Right, this must be it. Wow! It is really tall.

0:14:180:14:23

I think I can see a builder up there. He must be hungry.

0:14:230:14:27

-Stop!

-Who said that? I'm sorry?

-Stop right where you are.

0:14:270:14:31

Actually don't stop where you are. Take your foot off.

0:14:310:14:34

It's private property.

0:14:340:14:36

I have got to deliver this food to the builders.

0:14:360:14:39

-All right. OK, that's fine.

-Great, thanks.

-Stop.

0:14:390:14:42

-Get off the pyramid.

-But I thought you just said it was OK?

0:14:420:14:45

-I did.

-Right so I will just nip up the pyramid and deliver the food.

0:14:450:14:49

-Stop.

-You just...

0:14:490:14:53

-Stop.

-But I've got to deliver the food.

0:14:530:14:56

I know but I'm afraid I can't let you up the pyramid.

0:14:560:15:00

-Hold on - is that a flying camel?

-Flying camel?

0:15:000:15:02

Stop, stop, stop!

0:15:020:15:04

I am not falling for that flying camel trick.

0:15:040:15:06

How am I going to get this food up there?

0:15:060:15:10

I really am hungry.

0:15:140:15:16

Stop.

0:15:160:15:18

-Why do you keep stopping me?

-I'm a guard. That is what we do.

0:15:180:15:22

This pyramid is full of treasure.

0:15:220:15:25

I can't have people wandering all over it willy nilly.

0:15:250:15:28

When someone tries to climb it, I shout "stop".

0:15:280:15:32

-Stop. Stop.

-Oh no. This one is tricky.

0:15:320:15:36

The builders up there must be hungry and he won't let me up there.

0:15:360:15:40

Hold on. I remember - do you?

0:15:400:15:45

The pyramids were guarded and no-one was allowed to climb them alone.

0:15:450:15:50

So I can't climb the pyramid alone,

0:15:500:15:52

but I can climb it with someone else.

0:15:520:15:55

Excuse me, now I know I'm not allowed to climb the pyramid alone,

0:15:550:15:59

so can you come with me please?

0:15:590:16:01

I've got to deliver this food to the builders.

0:16:010:16:04

With me? You want to climb the pyramid with me? All right, why not?

0:16:040:16:08

-Thanks.

-I'll carry your food for you.

-Thank you.

-After you.

0:16:080:16:12

-Thank you.

-Righty-ho.

0:16:160:16:19

OK. Hello, I am Sid.

0:16:190:16:22

The Pharaoh sent me to give you your lunch. You must be hungry.

0:16:220:16:25

RUMBLING

0:16:250:16:26

-Excuse me. I am.

-I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get to you.

0:16:260:16:31

Here it is - all the lovely food from the Pharaoh.

0:16:310:16:35

She is quite nice but she is a bit, you know...

0:16:350:16:37

A bit what?

0:16:370:16:39

-A bit busy.

-Yes I have been quite busy. And I hope you have been too.

0:16:390:16:44

Is my pyramid finished?

0:16:440:16:46

BUILDER MUMBLES

0:16:460:16:49

Excuse me. Very soon. Just after lunch.

0:16:490:16:52

It's a fantastic pyramid. Very pointy.

0:16:520:16:56

-I couldn't have done it without my people - and you of course.

-Thanks.

0:16:560:17:01

How did you get up here?

0:17:010:17:03

I thought you weren't allowed to climb the pyramid alone?

0:17:030:17:06

I am the Pharaoh. This is my pyramid. I do what I want on it.

0:17:060:17:10

Enjoy your lunch.

0:17:100:17:13

I look forward to seeing the pyramid when it is finished. Yes very pointy.

0:17:130:17:20

The Pharaoh is happy, the pyramid is nearly built

0:17:200:17:24

and the builders are being fed.

0:17:240:17:26

We wouldn't have done it

0:17:260:17:27

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:17:270:17:31

When ancient Egyptians wrote words

0:17:310:17:33

they sometimes used pictures called hieroglyphs.

0:17:330:17:36

They didn't have money like we do

0:17:360:17:38

so they often paid for things using their jewellery.

0:17:380:17:43

The pyramids were guarded. And no one was allowed to climb them alone.

0:17:430:17:47

After you.

0:17:470:17:48

-I think it's time we went home. Bye, Pharaoh.

-Bye.

0:17:520:17:57

-Bye.

-Bye.

0:17:570:17:59

..And the shopping list was written in hieroglyphs

0:18:050:18:07

which are words written with pictures.

0:18:070:18:09

-Wow! Shopping in ancient Egypt!

-Yes, I know.

0:18:090:18:12

What have you been doing while I have been climbing pyramids?

0:18:120:18:15

I have been trying to come up with a dance routine.

0:18:150:18:18

MUSIC PLAYS

0:18:180:18:20

-But I don't think it's any good.

-I've got just the thing.

0:18:200:18:24

-Wow. That is so cool.

-And there's more. I'll teach you the rest.

0:18:260:18:30

-Thanks.

-Playing ancient Egyptians was great fun. What do you like to play?

0:18:300:18:35

I love playing wolves. Ow-oooh!

0:18:380:18:42

I love playing athletes. I always win gold.

0:18:420:18:46

Playing detective is fun because you get to solve lots of crimes.

0:18:500:18:55

I look for clues like this.

0:18:550:18:58

It's fun to play. Start playing today.

0:19:010:19:05

Go to...

0:19:050:19:09

Sid steps through the Magic Curtain and finds himself in ancient Egypt. He tries to understand the pharaoh's old-fashioned shopping list and tries to climb the pyramid alone, even though it is against the law.
