# Hey! Look at that driver driving

0:00:070:00:10

-# I want to ride that train of blue

-Me, too

0:00:100:00:12

# I'm looking way up high to the windows

0:00:120:00:15

# Take a peek for an inside view

0:00:150:00:17

# All these people busy working

0:00:170:00:20

-# I want to see what they all do

0:00:200:00:22

0:00:250:00:27

# Everybody's busy selling

0:00:270:00:30

-# I wanna buy me something new

-Me, too

0:00:300:00:33

# Look through the arches under the station

0:00:330:00:36

# Down where the pigeons perch and coo

0:00:360:00:38

# Take a taxi ride to the river

0:00:380:00:41

# I wanna drive down the avenue

0:00:410:00:44

# Hey, look at those buses gleaming

0:00:440:00:47

-Me, too

0:01:030:01:07

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:01:070:01:09

# Riverseafingal, by the sea. #

0:01:090:01:11

Seven o'clock.

0:01:110:01:13

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:01:160:01:18

-# Where the ferryboat sails are blue

-Sails are blue

0:01:180:01:22

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

# She'd love to say hello to you! #

0:01:240:01:29

Hello, honey pie, come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:330:01:38

# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play

0:01:380:01:41

# Granny Murray's house is home to... #

0:01:410:01:44

Who's here today? Well, we've got Molly and Hope.

0:01:440:01:49

Don't just sit there, my wee cherubs, come on, let's get busy!

0:01:490:01:54

What do you see, Molly? Today, we need to invent a gadget

0:01:540:01:57

that can store some of those toys.

0:01:570:02:00

Oh, good girl.

0:02:000:02:02

Oh, that's a nice shape. Right, let's get the toys!

0:02:020:02:06

Bring them all over.

0:02:060:02:09

There you go, Ted.

0:02:090:02:11

That's it. Good girl.

0:02:120:02:14

Maybe some smaller ones further up.

0:02:150:02:18

Well! We've got Hope and we've got Molly

0:02:190:02:22

but someone's missing from home today.

0:02:220:02:25

Oh, not any more!

0:02:260:02:28

Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:280:02:30

Oh, it's Rebecca, with Mickey John.

0:02:300:02:33

Hello there!

0:02:330:02:35

-Mickey John! Hello!

-Hello, my darling.

0:02:360:02:39

And Rebecca!

0:02:390:02:40

Looks like construction work here. What's happening?

0:02:430:02:47

It's a new gadget we've invented

0:02:470:02:49

so all the toys can stay together.

0:02:490:02:52

The larger ones round the bottom, smaller ones to the top.

0:02:520:02:56

Looks like the sort of thing the pharaohs of Egypt

0:02:560:02:59

would have invented. Like a pyramid.

0:02:590:03:02

It does look like a pyramid.

0:03:020:03:04

Now Rebecca's here we'll dress Claude up

0:03:040:03:07

as a pharaoh of Ancient Egypt!

0:03:070:03:10

Why don't we do a sun dance up the Nile to your chairs?

0:03:100:03:13

Oh, I dare say!

0:03:130:03:16

Will we see some pharaohs at the museum?

0:03:180:03:21

You going there?

0:03:210:03:22

Yes, of course we are, silly sausage!

0:03:220:03:25

You said you were going to write some notes for us.

0:03:250:03:28

That's right, I made several notes. Where did I put them?

0:03:280:03:32

Ah! Notes on ancient gadgets.

0:03:350:03:39

-Oh! How exciting.

-No, these are for my class later.

0:03:390:03:42

Oh, maybe we'll see some ancient gadgets at the museum.

0:03:420:03:46

Oh, you must. I love gadgets!

0:03:460:03:48

Now, is it true that the Romans built drains thousands of years ago?

0:03:480:03:53

Yes, they were very good at plumbing.

0:03:530:03:56

I must remember that the next time I flush my toilet!

0:03:560:04:00

Yes, and I must remember to tell my class.

0:04:000:04:03

-Oh, don't muddle your notes up.

-Oh, no,

0:04:030:04:05

-I know just the place to put it.

-Oh!

0:04:050:04:08

The Greeks and the Romans and the Egyptians

0:04:090:04:12

might have invented great gadgets,

0:04:120:04:15

-but do you know what my old boss used to say?

-Tell me!

0:04:150:04:18

He used to say one of the best gadgets of all time

0:04:180:04:22

is the bulldog clip.

0:04:220:04:23

The bulldog clip? What's that?

0:04:230:04:25

A machine for cutting a bulldog's hair?

0:04:250:04:28

No! One of these!

0:04:280:04:30

I keep them away from little fingers

0:04:300:04:33

but they're very useful for clipping all my paper together.

0:04:330:04:37

Oh! Very nifty.

0:04:370:04:39

-Yes...

-You can keep that one, I've plenty.

0:04:390:04:42

Thank you, Granny Murray.

0:04:420:04:43

Will you look at Claude? He's all pharaoh'd up.

0:04:430:04:47

Oh, you look very royal, Claude.

0:04:470:04:50

Oh, yes, a right royal pharaoh. Well done, my darlings.

0:04:500:04:54

Well, I better be off.

0:04:540:04:56

-Bye-bye.

-Goodbye, Daddy.

-Have fun at the museum.

0:04:560:05:00

Come on, you.

0:05:000:05:01

Remember, one of the best gadgets of all time is the bulldog clip.

0:05:050:05:10

Thank you, I'll see you later.

0:05:100:05:13

-We'll be thinking of you!

-Me, too!

0:05:130:05:16

You keep a wee eye on Mickey John,

0:05:170:05:19

make sure he goes the right way to work.

0:05:190:05:22

I don't have much time. How can I speed across the river to work?

0:05:240:05:29

PARP! PARP!

0:05:290:05:30

That's right, thanks!

0:05:300:05:32

# I'm in, in, in, in, in a hurry

0:05:320:05:34

# I nee, nee, nee, need to speed to work

0:05:340:05:37

# I take a ticket, ticket on a speedboat

0:05:370:05:41

# I'll be, be, be, be, be, be there quite quick.

0:05:410:05:44

# Hurry, hurry, hurry down the river

0:05:440:05:46

# Splashing, splashing, splashing through the waves

0:05:460:05:50

# Whining, whining, whining drives the speed up

0:05:500:05:53

# Chugga, chugga, chugga slows us down.

0:05:530:05:55

# Rocking, rocking, rocking to the dock

0:05:550:05:57

# Go splashing, splashing to our stop!

0:05:570:06:00

# I'm in, in, in, in, in a hurry

0:06:010:06:03

# I nee, nee, nee, need to speed to work

0:06:030:06:06

# I'm in, in, in, in, in a hurry! #

0:06:060:06:09

Hurry, hurry, hurry!

0:06:100:06:12

And hurry, hurry, hurry, put my tie on.

0:06:150:06:18

All dressed and ready to go.

0:06:240:06:26

Oh, I better clean the board before the children get here.

0:06:260:06:31

SQUEAKS

0:06:330:06:34

HE YELPS

0:06:340:06:37

HE SHRIEKS!

0:06:370:06:39

-Hi, Mickey John!

-Oh! It's a mouse!

0:06:390:06:43

-What you doing up there?

-The mouse there! Look!

0:06:430:06:47

It's not a real mouse. It's a gadget I bought.

0:06:470:06:51

Oh...

0:06:510:06:52

Silly me.

0:06:520:06:53

-You know, gadgets really fascinate me.

-Me, too!

0:06:530:06:57

So much so I'm planning a lesson on gadgets through the ages

0:06:570:07:01

-for my class.

-Well in that case,

0:07:010:07:03

you must tell them the most amazing ancient gadget was a tree trunk.

0:07:030:07:07

Fascinating! I must note that.

0:07:070:07:10

In Ancient Egypt, when they used to build those pyramids,

0:07:100:07:14

they would move the blocks of stone by rolling them on a tree trunk.

0:07:140:07:18

Clever chaps.

0:07:180:07:19

This is a clever gadget. Fancy a swap?

0:07:190:07:22

-What have you got?

-Look at this.

0:07:220:07:24

HE CLICKS FINGERS

0:07:260:07:27

HE CLICKS FINGERS

0:07:280:07:30

That's a cool swap. Cheers!

0:07:320:07:34

-See you later.

-Bye, Raymond.

0:07:340:07:37

What a great gadget.

0:07:380:07:40

I must show it to Rebecca.

0:07:400:07:42

I wonder how you're getting on?

0:07:420:07:44

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:07:440:07:49

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal that's for me. #

0:07:490:07:55

When you go to a museum, it's a good idea to take a list with you

0:07:560:08:00

so you can remember to look out for lots of things.

0:08:000:08:04

So, what's this?

0:08:040:08:05

-TOGETHER:

-A clock!

0:08:050:08:06

A clock!

0:08:060:08:07

So I'll stick this on and when I go to the museum,

0:08:070:08:12

I'll look out for...clocks!

0:08:120:08:15

What about this?

0:08:150:08:18

-TOGETHER:

-A mummy!

-Your mummy?

0:08:180:08:20

We've to look for your mummy at the museum? She's not that old!

0:08:200:08:24

It's an Egyptian mummy, that's right.

0:08:240:08:27

So we'll stick it on here, there we are.

0:08:270:08:31

BELL RINGS

0:08:350:08:37

Are you having fun, Daddy?

0:08:370:08:40

Oh!

0:08:410:08:42

Here come my class.

0:08:420:08:44

I'd better put you away.

0:08:440:08:46

Good morning. Today, we'll talk about people who lived a LONG time ago.

0:08:490:08:52

The Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans.

0:08:520:08:56

These people loved gadgets and so do I.

0:08:560:09:00

So, I'm going to tell you about... hang on.

0:09:000:09:02

-"Don't forget to put your underpants in the laundry!"

-What's going on?

0:09:060:09:10

Oh...well, that's not right. Hang on a minute.

0:09:100:09:14

Today I'm going to tell you about "one box of muesli

0:09:140:09:17

"and don't forget the sausages!"

0:09:170:09:20

Well, we'll talk about gadgets later.

0:09:220:09:24

It's time for me to get down to some hard work.

0:09:240:09:28

# Oh, I whoop with joy when I go to school in the mornin'

0:10:520:10:56

Good work, everyone!

0:10:580:10:59

Today I'm going to be telling you about...

0:10:590:11:03

"Exercises for the day. Side bends and star jumps!"

0:11:030:11:06

Hang on, we're going to talk about gadgets.

0:11:070:11:10

BELL RINGS

0:11:100:11:11

There's the bell, off you go.

0:11:110:11:13

Time to prepare for this afternoon's lesson.

0:11:170:11:21

Ah, just the job.

0:11:250:11:28

I wonder how you're getting on, my little Queen of the Nile.

0:11:280:11:32

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal that's for me! #

0:11:320:11:38

Look, Granny Murray, there's a mummy!

0:11:390:11:42

A mummy just like on our list, well done!

0:11:420:11:45

Would you look at some of the paintings!

0:11:450:11:48

They're thousands of years old.

0:11:480:11:51

Your daddy would love it here, Rebecca.

0:11:510:11:54

I'm thinking of you, Daddy!

0:12:000:12:02

Come in, settle down.

0:12:040:12:05

All right?

0:12:070:12:08

It's time for the most exciting part of the day.

0:12:080:12:11

I'm going to tell you about people who lived in ancient times.

0:12:110:12:15

Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans.

0:12:150:12:18

I'm going to tell you the exciting inventions they came up with.

0:12:180:12:22

Now...hang on a minute.

0:12:220:12:24

Oh, that's not it.

0:12:270:12:29

Oh...

0:12:290:12:30

Ah, where shall I start?

0:12:300:12:32

Oh, dear.

0:12:320:12:34

Where shall I begin?

0:12:340:12:35

I've been planning this lesson for days and it's a mess!

0:12:350:12:39

Everything's on these papers but they're in such a muddle.

0:12:390:12:43

I can't make sense of it. Where did the time go?

0:12:430:12:46

BONG!

0:12:460:12:47

At 7 o'clock, I dropped Rebecca at Granny Murray's.

0:12:470:12:50

The children had made a brilliant gadget for their toys.

0:12:500:12:54

I said it looked like a pyramid so they dressed up Claude

0:12:540:12:58

as a pharaoh.

0:12:580:12:59

Granny Murray reminded me she was taking the children to the museum

0:12:590:13:04

and that I had promised to make some notes of things to look for.

0:13:040:13:08

I couldn't find it but I found one about gadgets

0:13:080:13:11

I'd prepared for my class.

0:13:110:13:13

BONG!

0:13:130:13:14

At 8 o'clock I was ready to work

0:13:140:13:16

when a mouse rolled into my classroom.

0:13:160:13:19

Raymond showed me it wasn't a mouse but a gadget.

0:13:190:13:22

BONG!

0:13:220:13:23

At 9 o'clock, the children were ready to work.

0:13:230:13:26

I wanted to teach them about ancient gadgets

0:13:260:13:29

but I couldn't find the notes.

0:13:290:13:31

BONG!

0:13:310:13:32

At 1 o'clock, the children came back from lunch.

0:13:320:13:35

Everything was ready for my lesson on gadgets.

0:13:350:13:38

But I still couldn't find my list.

0:13:380:13:41

I've got so many pieces of paper but I can never find

0:13:410:13:44

the one I want.

0:13:440:13:45

I need to get organised!

0:13:450:13:47

Remember, one of the best gadgets of all time

0:13:470:13:50

is the bulldog clip!

0:13:500:13:53

One of the best gadgets of all time is the bulldog clip.

0:13:540:13:57

That's just what I need! A bulldog clip.

0:13:570:14:00

To sort out my papers so I can teach the class in an organised way.

0:14:000:14:04

It's a race against time!

0:14:040:14:06

# I've got to do it I've got to do it

0:14:060:14:08

# I've got to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:080:14:11

# I've got to sort it I've got to sort it

0:14:110:14:13

# I've got to do the job on time

0:14:130:14:15

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong

0:14:150:14:18

# I'm going to finish this job before I finish this song

# Do we think he's going to do it?

0:14:210:14:23

# Do the job that needs to be done?

0:14:230:14:26

# Will he know how to fix it?

0:14:260:14:28

# Will he finish what he has begun?

0:14:280:14:31

# Yes, we're sure that he'll get there in the end

0:14:310:14:33

# Cos he knows what he should do

0:14:330:14:36

-# I'm going to do it

-He's going to do it

0:14:360:14:38

# I'm going to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:380:14:41

-# I'm going to sort it

-He's going to sort it

0:14:410:14:43

# I'm going to do the job on time

0:14:430:14:46

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong

0:14:460:14:48

# I'm going to finish this job

0:14:480:14:50

# Before I finish this song. #

0:14:500:14:52

Right then, now that I've got my bulldog clip,

0:14:520:14:55

I can tell you about all the other gadgets.

0:14:550:14:58

Right, the pyramids.

0:14:580:15:00

Like this. They were made from big blocks of stone.

0:15:000:15:03

The Ancient Egyptians used lots of wood to roll the stones

0:15:030:15:07

to the pyramid. Like that.

0:15:070:15:11

It's a great gadget, isn't it?

0:15:110:15:14

Right...

0:15:140:15:16

The Ancient Greeks had a gadget for pumping water.

0:15:160:15:19

The Archimedes' screw.

0:15:190:15:22

Oh yes, now here's a more recent gadget from about 100 years ago.

0:15:220:15:26

The steam engine.

0:15:260:15:28

Chug-chug-chug-chug. Woo-woo!

0:15:280:15:31

Now...mouse.

0:15:330:15:36

Oh yes, this is a more modern gadget

0:15:360:15:39

but it's fun. Don't worry, it's not a real mouse.

0:15:390:15:43

Here we go...

0:15:430:15:45

IT SQUEAKS

0:15:460:15:48

Oh!

0:15:480:15:50

I wonder how you're getting on at the museum, Rebecca.

0:15:560:16:00

We had to look for clocks on our list, darlings.

0:16:030:16:07

You'll not see a better clock than that.

0:16:070:16:09

That's called the Millennium Clock.

0:16:090:16:12

It's fabulous, isn't it?

0:16:160:16:18

What do you see on it?

0:16:180:16:20

-A skeleton!

-Oh, spooky!

0:16:200:16:22

We better head back, your dad will be home before us!

0:16:280:16:32

BELL RINGS

0:16:320:16:33

-Mickey John!

-Granny Murray!

0:16:420:16:44

Come away through!

0:16:440:16:46

Rebecca, Daddy's here!

0:16:460:16:48

-Hello, beautiful girl.

-Hello, Daddy.

0:16:480:16:51

-Looks like you had a lovely time.

-Yeah!

0:16:510:16:54

We certainly did. It was a pleasure.

0:16:540:16:56

-Thank you, Granny Murray.

-Oh, my special girl!

0:16:560:17:00

You're good as gold.

0:17:000:17:02

It's thanks from me, too, your saying one of the best gadgets

0:17:020:17:06

is the bulldog clip saved the day.

0:17:060:17:08

I'm glad to hear it!

0:17:080:17:11

Come on, you two. Home!

0:17:110:17:13

-Looking forward to next time!

-Me, too!

0:17:160:17:19

Let's chat about our time away.

0:17:190:17:21

I suppose you want me to tell you all about my time, too.

0:17:210:17:26

# Well, there was waving, greeting Hello, meeting

0:17:260:17:30

# Bye-bye, closing Waking, dozing

0:17:300:17:32

# Eating, sleeping Fetching, sketching

0:17:320:17:33

# Painting, stretching, Gluing, chewing

0:17:330:17:35

# Picking up and wiping round

0:17:350:17:38

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:380:17:40

But what was really special about today?

0:17:420:17:45

Well, Claude was dressed as an Egyptian pharaoh

0:17:450:17:50

because we were going to the museum.

0:17:500:17:52

The children made a gadget out of boxes for the toys

0:17:520:17:56

that looked like a pyramid.

0:17:560:17:58

Later on, the children and I made an I-spy card

0:17:580:18:01

for things to look out for at the museum.

0:18:010:18:04

When we got to the museum, we had great fun looking at

0:18:040:18:08

the old things from Ancient Egypt.

0:18:080:18:10

The best thing of all was the Millennium Clock.

0:18:100:18:13

We could have watched it for hours!

0:18:130:18:16

When Mickey John came,

0:18:170:18:19

he told me he had remembered that I told him

0:18:190:18:22

one of the best gadgets of all time is the bulldog clip.

0:18:220:18:27

And it saved the day!

0:18:270:18:30

Mickey John left me this for Rebecca to play with!

0:18:310:18:35

Do you like gadgets? Me, too!

0:18:350:18:39

Bye bye, honey-pie!
