0:00:390:00:40

OK, hold still.

0:00:440:00:46

There you are.

0:00:460:00:48

What do you think?

0:00:480:00:50

Oh, wow, it's brilliant, Sid!

0:00:500:00:52

-OK, let me draw you now.

-OK.

0:00:520:00:55

OK.

0:00:570:00:59

SHE LAUGHS

0:00:590:01:01

Ooh, ah...

0:01:030:01:05

-Ta-da! Done!

-Wow, that was quick.

0:01:050:01:08

HE GASPS Oh. Um...

0:01:080:01:11

-It does look a bit weird.

-Hmm.

-Like an alien.

0:01:110:01:14

Oh, thanks(!)

0:01:140:01:15

Not you. It's the way I've drawn you is no good.

0:01:150:01:18

I'm no good at drawing people.

0:01:180:01:20

What else can I draw?

0:01:200:01:23

BEEPING Oh.

0:01:230:01:25

Hold on, Rebecca. It's time!

0:01:250:01:27

Great!

0:01:270:01:29

-It's time to play!

-Whose turn is it today?

0:01:310:01:35

-Let it be me!

-Let it be me!

0:01:350:01:38

-Me!

-Me!

0:01:380:01:40

Let it be me, let it be me!

0:01:400:01:44

Let it be me.

0:01:440:01:45

Let it be me.

0:01:450:01:48

BOTH: # Let it be me

0:01:480:01:50

# Let it be me

0:01:500:01:51

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me

0:01:510:01:55

-# Let...

-Let it be me!

0:01:550:01:59

# Let it be me, let it be me

0:01:590:02:02

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me!

0:02:020:02:06

-Could it be me?

-Could it be me?

0:02:060:02:09

TICK-TOCK!

0:02:090:02:10

It's me!

0:02:100:02:12

# Yes, it's me! Yes, it's me!

0:02:120:02:15

# I'm really, really, really, really happy!

0:02:150:02:19

# It's me! #

0:02:190:02:21

Look, there's the dressing-up room.

0:02:210:02:26

# Let's play! #

0:02:260:02:27

This is really exciting.

0:02:270:02:30

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

0:02:300:02:33

So, I've got a diver's snorkel and mask, a racing driver's suit

0:02:360:02:40

and a knight's shoes.

0:02:400:02:42

I can't imagine a knight driving a racing car under the sea? Can you?

0:02:420:02:46

Right, so this time I've got on a safari hat, shirt,

0:02:500:02:56

shorts and walking boots.

0:02:560:02:58

So what do you think we're going to play today?

0:02:580:03:01

That's right. We're going to play animal rangers.

0:03:010:03:05

Maybe we'll go out into the wild.

0:03:050:03:07

We might even see some wild animals. I love animals! Don't you?

0:03:070:03:11

So, what do we need to know?

0:03:110:03:13

BOING!

0:03:130:03:16

'Animal rangers work in nature reserves,

0:03:170:03:20

'big areas of land where animals can be found.

0:03:200:03:23

'Because there aren't roads, you need a map and compass

0:03:230:03:26

'to find your way around.

0:03:260:03:28

'Animal rangers follow the animals in the wild by looking for clues.

0:03:280:03:33

'They look for things like footprints,

0:03:330:03:36

'eaten grass and droppings

0:03:360:03:38

'to lead them to the animals.'

0:03:380:03:42

'Many animals can easily smell people, so stay downwind,

0:03:420:03:46

'so the air won't blow your smell in their direction

0:03:460:03:49

'and you won't disturb them.'

0:03:490:03:51

That's everything that we need to remember. Do we need anything else?

0:03:510:03:56

Whoa! A camera!

0:03:560:03:59

I wonder what we're going to need this for. We'll soon find out.

0:04:020:04:06

We've got everything. Let's go!

0:04:060:04:08

GAME BEEPS Ooh, ah!

0:04:100:04:12

Oh! Oh, no, the batteries are flat!

0:04:120:04:15

Oh!

0:04:150:04:17

Sid!

0:04:170:04:19

What are you doing?

0:04:190:04:20

I'm tracking you.

0:04:200:04:22

Guess what we're playing today?

0:04:220:04:24

Someone who's forgotten the bottom half of his trousers!

0:04:240:04:29

Hey? These are shorts! We're playing animal rangers.

0:04:290:04:33

Look at this. An old camera.

0:04:330:04:36

Oh, how cool is that! Say "cheese"!

0:04:360:04:39

Cheese!

0:04:390:04:41

Oh, the picture comes out straightaway. How cool is that!

0:04:410:04:45

I thought you were drawing.

0:04:450:04:47

I was, but I couldn't find anything to draw.

0:04:470:04:50

Now you're going on your adventure, I can't draw you.

0:04:500:04:54

I know. You can use this picture to copy.

0:04:540:04:57

Oh, that is such a good idea!

0:04:570:05:00

-Well, have fun. I'll see you later.

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:05:000:05:03

# Let's play! #

0:05:030:05:04

Come on, time to be an animal ranger. Let's play!

0:05:040:05:08

Whoo!

0:05:080:05:10

Yeah!

0:05:100:05:13

HE LAUGHS

0:05:130:05:15

Right, so, where are we?

0:05:190:05:23

This must be a nature reserve.

0:05:230:05:26

I can hear animals.

0:05:260:05:27

-INSECT BUZZES

-And insects.

0:05:270:05:30

I can't see any, though.

0:05:300:05:32

Ow! But I can definitely feel them.

0:05:320:05:34

Ow! Ow! Ow, ow, ow!

0:05:340:05:37

-GROWLING

-Oh, did you hear that?

0:05:370:05:40

I don't know what animal makes that sound but it sounds scary to me.

0:05:400:05:44

Oh, look. There's a camp. I'd better get over there.

0:05:440:05:48

-GROWLING

-And quickly!

0:05:480:05:50

-Oopsy!

-SOUTH AFRICAN ACCENT: Oopsy?

0:05:500:05:52

-What animal said, "Oopsy"?

-Me.

0:05:520:05:56

Oh! You're not an animal. Are you the new animal ranger?

0:05:560:06:01

-Animal Ranger Sid at your service.

-Nice to meet you, Animal Ranger Sid.

0:06:010:06:05

-I'm Dr Rita, animal expert.

-Maybe you can answer this question.

0:06:050:06:10

What animal goes "Rrrrrrr"?

0:06:100:06:13

-That's easy. A lion makes that noise.

-Oh, a lion.

0:06:130:06:17

Lions!

0:06:170:06:18

Don't worry. They're a long way away.

0:06:180:06:21

A lion's roar can travel up to ten kilometres.

0:06:210:06:26

They sleep in the day. They'll be off to bed.

0:06:260:06:29

Phew! She knows a lot about animals.

0:06:290:06:32

-PHONE RINGS

-Hey, is that a phone? Out here?

0:06:320:06:35

Yes, it's a satellite phone thing.

0:06:350:06:37

These newfangled things, I don't have a clue.

0:06:370:06:41

Hello. Can you hear me?

0:06:410:06:44

It's upside down.

0:06:440:06:46

-SHE LAUGHS Of course!

-Of course.

0:06:460:06:50

Hello, Dr Rita speaking. VOICE JABBERS ON PHONE

0:06:500:06:54

Oh. Oh, you spotted her?

0:06:540:06:57

You found Ngozi?

0:06:570:06:59

Down by the watering hole?

0:06:590:07:01

Great!

0:07:010:07:02

Of course, we're on our way. Bye.

0:07:020:07:05

That was base camp. They've found elephant Ngozi.

0:07:080:07:13

Who?

0:07:130:07:14

-Ngozi.

-Ngozi?

0:07:140:07:16

Yes, Ngozi, an elephant.

0:07:160:07:18

An elephant! Exciting!

0:07:180:07:20

Yes, we need to find her. She's about to give birth.

0:07:200:07:24

-She's due any day now.

-Oh.

-Yes.

0:07:240:07:26

I've got photos of every one of my babies.

0:07:260:07:30

Look how precious and cutie-wutie they are.

0:07:300:07:33

Right, so we need to find this elephant Ngozi

0:07:330:07:36

before she has her baby.

0:07:360:07:38

Right, here we are. Seat belts on.

0:07:460:07:48

Er, don't you need keys?

0:07:510:07:54

Keys!

0:07:540:07:56

Of course.

0:07:560:07:58

I'll be back in two shakes of a zebra's tail.

0:07:580:08:02

Right.

0:08:020:08:03

Where are you, keys? CRASH!

0:08:050:08:08

Oh, drat!

0:08:080:08:09

So, how are we going to find Ngozi?

0:08:090:08:12

We don't know where the watering hole is

0:08:120:08:14

and we can't just drive around and hope that we find her.

0:08:140:08:18

Oh, I know! I remember. Do you?

0:08:180:08:21

To get around, we need a map and a compass.

0:08:210:08:25

I wonder what's in here.

0:08:250:08:29

Oh.

0:08:290:08:30

Here's a map. All we need now is a compass.

0:08:300:08:33

There's one right here.

0:08:330:08:35

Oh.

0:08:350:08:37

Great, thanks.

0:08:370:08:39

Er...how do we use this?

0:08:390:08:41

You point it to the north.

0:08:410:08:43

North, right. OK.

0:08:430:08:45

So we need to make the line pointing north on the compass

0:08:450:08:49

match north on the map.

0:08:490:08:52

That tells us we need to go... that way! Let's go!

0:08:520:08:56

Right, let's go!

0:08:560:08:59

-I think it might be better if you drive.

-I think you might be right!

0:09:010:09:06

This is great! Will we get to see any other animals apart from Ngozi?

0:09:070:09:12

Agh!

0:09:120:09:14

Sorry. You looked very big for a moment.

0:09:140:09:16

-Yes, we should see other animals at the watering hole.

-Great.

0:09:160:09:21

Hold on. We'd better check and make sure

0:09:210:09:24

we're still going the right way.

0:09:240:09:26

If I'm right, the watering hole should be just over there.

0:09:270:09:32

YAPPING

0:09:320:09:33

YAPPING

0:09:350:09:36

Oh, meerkat!

0:09:360:09:39

-Meerkat? Where?

-Look, over there.

0:09:390:09:42

Oh, no, it's gone.

0:09:420:09:44

No, there it is now!

0:09:440:09:46

-Where?

-Look. Oh, you've missed it again.

0:09:460:09:49

Don't worry. I'll try to talk to it to get it out.

0:09:490:09:53

SQUEAKS: Oh! Oh!

0:09:530:09:54

Oh! Oh!

0:09:540:09:56

-MEERKAT YAPS

-Yes! It worked!

0:09:560:09:58

-Look!

-Oh! Oh!

0:09:580:10:01

Ha! Come on, let's get back to the watering hole.

0:10:010:10:04

We don't want to miss any more animals and we'd better find Ngozi.

0:10:040:10:08

Over there.

0:10:100:10:12

Look, there's the watering hole.

0:10:120:10:15

Now, we need to be very quiet not to scare the animals away.

0:10:150:10:20

So... Shh.

0:10:200:10:22

-ELEPHANT TRUMPETS

-I think I heard some elephants.

0:10:270:10:31

-Where?

-Over there.

0:10:310:10:33

HORN TOOTS ELEPHANTS TRUMPET

0:10:330:10:35

Oh! The animals are running away.

0:10:350:10:38

Come back, animals!

0:10:380:10:39

Come to Mummy!

0:10:390:10:41

Oh, no. I think I've scared away all the animals. Dr Rita...

0:10:410:10:45

Dr Rita?

0:10:450:10:46

And now SHE'S gone. Come on, we'd better go and find her.

0:10:460:10:50

ANIMAL HOOTS

0:10:530:10:55

Dr Rita.

0:10:580:11:00

WATER SPLASHES

0:11:050:11:08

I can't see her anywhere.

0:11:080:11:11

Dr Rita?

0:11:110:11:13

Where are you?

0:11:130:11:15

Oh, no. I have no idea where she is. She went after the animals,

0:11:150:11:20

but I don't know where they went. And we need to find them.

0:11:200:11:24

Oh! I know! I remember. Do you?

0:11:260:11:30

Animal rangers, when looking for animals, look for clues.

0:11:300:11:34

Like footprints, eaten grass and droppings.

0:11:340:11:38

So I need to look for some clues.

0:11:380:11:40

Ah, look.

0:11:400:11:41

Loads of animal footprints!

0:11:410:11:44

Krr! Krr!

0:11:500:11:51

Krr!

0:11:510:11:53

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!

0:11:530:11:54

Ooh! Ooh!

0:11:540:11:57

-What was that?

-YAPPING

0:11:570:11:59

Yap, yap, yap!

0:11:590:12:00

I think it's a meerkat!

0:12:000:12:03

SHE WHISTLES

0:12:030:12:04

Or is it a bird?

0:12:040:12:06

GROWLING

0:12:060:12:07

Rrrroar!

0:12:070:12:08

It's a lion!

0:12:080:12:09

Rrrroar!

0:12:090:12:11

And it's coming this way!

0:12:110:12:13

Quick, hide!

0:12:130:12:16

BOTH GASP

0:12:220:12:23

-Shh!

-Shh!

-Shh!

-Shh!

0:12:230:12:26

Dr Rita, I'm so glad it's you.

0:12:260:12:29

I've been trying to call the animals

0:12:290:12:32

-but they've gone. And Ngozi.

-Oh.

0:12:320:12:34

I'm sorry. It's my fault that Ngozi ran away.

0:12:340:12:37

-But we can go looking for her by tracking her.

-Of course. Tracking!

0:12:370:12:42

Of course.

0:12:420:12:44

-Right, we need to find some elephant prints.

-OK.

0:12:440:12:47

Ooh.

0:12:500:12:52

-Is this one?

-Er, that is your footprint.

0:12:530:12:56

Oh, yes! Ooh.

0:12:560:12:58

What about this one? It's got four toes. I've got five.

0:12:580:13:02

That is a hippo print.

0:13:020:13:04

An elephant print is much bigger and much rounder.

0:13:040:13:08

OK.

0:13:080:13:09

Oh!

0:13:120:13:13

This one's massive! Is this it?

0:13:130:13:16

That's it! That's an elephant print!

0:13:180:13:23

-HE SNIFFS

-There's something pongy here.

0:13:230:13:26

It's definitely something stinky.

0:13:260:13:28

I think it's this.

0:13:300:13:32

Oh! Elephant droppings.

0:13:320:13:34

Look, there's even more over there.

0:13:340:13:37

So, we might find Ngozi.

0:13:370:13:39

Yes, exactly.

0:13:390:13:41

Phew! Tracking is really thirsty work.

0:13:460:13:50

Hold on. I've got a drink. It's in my backpack.

0:13:500:13:53

ELEPHANT TRUMPETS Shh! I heard an elephant.

0:13:550:13:59

-Where?

-Over there.

0:13:590:14:01

Oh! See? The trunk.

0:14:010:14:03

So how do we know that's Ngozi?

0:14:030:14:05

We need to get very close. I'll know her by her ears.

0:14:050:14:09

-She has the most amazingly big lobes.

-Ow!

0:14:090:14:12

Sorry. OK, you go ahead and I'll pack up my backpack.

0:14:120:14:16

-Stay low and get close.

-Right.

0:14:160:14:20

Stay low and get close.

0:14:200:14:23

We can't make any noise because we don't want to frighten her.

0:14:230:14:27

Look. Can you see her trunk?

0:14:300:14:32

ELEPHANT SNORTS

0:14:320:14:33

Hold on. What's she doing?

0:14:330:14:36

I think she's smelling something.

0:14:360:14:38

She might smell me. If she does, she might run away.

0:14:380:14:42

What shall we do?

0:14:420:14:44

Oh, I know. I remember. Do you?

0:14:440:14:48

Animals can smell strangers.

0:14:480:14:51

We need to stay downwind of her

0:14:510:14:53

so that the air doesn't blow my smell up her nose.

0:14:530:14:57

We need to come from another direction. Come on.

0:14:570:15:00

-Ouch.

-Sorry.

0:15:030:15:05

-We need to go round, so we can get behind Ngozi.

-Right.

0:15:050:15:09

So, what now?

0:15:260:15:28

We just wait.

0:15:280:15:30

-ELEPHANT TRUMPETS

-Is that Ngozi?

0:15:300:15:32

Yes, it is.

0:15:320:15:34

I can tell by her ears.

0:15:340:15:37

Hold on, what's that?

0:15:370:15:39

And she's had her baby!

0:15:390:15:42

Isn't she beautiful?

0:15:420:15:44

She's so cute!

0:15:440:15:46

-Hold on. I need to get a picture of her for my baby board.

-OK.

0:15:460:15:50

Where is my camera? Oh, no, it's not in here.

0:15:530:15:57

I knew I'd forget something.

0:15:570:16:00

This might be my only chance to get a picture.

0:16:000:16:03

Don't worry, I'll get it.

0:16:030:16:05

Oh! Hold on. Wait. I remember.

0:16:070:16:11

We've got this old camera. I knew it would come in handy.

0:16:110:16:16

-Here, you can borrow this.

-Oh, lovely.

0:16:160:16:21

Actually, could you take it?

0:16:210:16:24

-I don't know what to do with these newfangled things.

-OK.

0:16:240:16:28

Oh, great!

0:16:330:16:35

-Take another for luck.

-OK.

0:16:350:16:37

Oh, lovely.

0:16:420:16:44

ELEPHANT TRUMPETS Look, they're going. Let's head back.

0:16:440:16:48

-Isn't she the most gorgeous baby ever?

-Yes.

0:16:540:16:59

Here, you take this one.

0:16:590:17:01

Ah, thanks, Dr Rita.

0:17:010:17:03

Isn't she lovely!

0:17:030:17:06

Thanks, Sid. I could never have found Ngozi

0:17:060:17:09

and her baby without you.

0:17:090:17:11

Yes, and we'd never have done it

0:17:110:17:13

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:17:130:17:17

Animal rangers sometimes use a map and compass

0:17:170:17:20

to find their way around.

0:17:200:17:22

They follow animals by looking for clues like footprints and droppings.

0:17:220:17:28

That's it. That's an elephant print.

0:17:280:17:30

And animal rangers need to stay downwind of animals

0:17:300:17:34

so that they won't disturb them.

0:17:340:17:36

Thanks for all your help today, Sid.

0:17:380:17:40

Ow! Bit tight.

0:17:400:17:43

That was a bear hug!

0:17:430:17:46

-Of course!

-Of course.

-It's been great learning about wild animals.

0:17:460:17:51

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

-Bye!

0:17:520:17:56

Hey, Sid, what was it like being an animal ranger?

0:18:000:18:04

Amazing. We tracked an elephant and it had a baby!

0:18:040:18:07

-Wow, that sounds brilliant.

-It was brilliant.

0:18:070:18:10

-So who are these pictures of?

-You.

0:18:100:18:13

-Really?

-Yes.

0:18:130:18:15

I practised hard and I copied the photo you gave me,

0:18:150:18:18

but I'm no good at drawing people.

0:18:180:18:20

Ah. Maybe I can help. How about an elephant with its baby?

0:18:200:18:24

You could copy that.

0:18:240:18:26

Oh, wow! It's so cute. I'm going to really enjoy drawing this.

0:18:260:18:30

Being an animal adventurer was great fun. What do you like to play?

0:18:300:18:36

I like to play doctors.

0:18:380:18:40

I use my stethoscope like this.

0:18:400:18:44

I love to play ancient Egyptians and dance like this.

0:18:440:18:48

I like to play horse riding.

0:18:500:18:53

My horse is really fast.

0:18:530:18:56

It's fun to play. Start playing today.

0:19:080:19:09
