-One morning, I was brushing my teeth

-and as I looked at the toothpaste...

0:00:530:00:58

-..and the water

-disappearing down the plughole...

0:00:580:01:02

-..I thought to myself,

-"What's down there?

0:01:030:01:06

-"What's down the plughole?"

0:01:060:01:09

-So I went downstairs

-to ask my family.

0:01:090:01:13

-Taid was the first person I saw.

0:01:180:01:20

-"Taid, what's down the plughole?"

-I asked.

0:01:200:01:23

-"Ah, that's a very good question,"

-answered Taid.

0:01:240:01:27

-"I wondered that myself once.

0:01:280:01:30

-"So, I went down the plughole

-to see for myself."

0:01:300:01:34

-Taid told me

-that when he was a young boy...

0:01:470:01:50

-..he jumped into the sink

-and slid down the plughole.

0:01:500:01:54

-Down the pipe he went,

-around the u-bend.

0:01:580:02:02

-He leant this way

-and splashed that way...

0:02:040:02:07

-..until pop, he reappeared

-at the centre of the Earth.

0:02:080:02:13

-That's where all the pipes lead.

0:02:200:02:23

-There were pipes from China,

-pipes from Australia...

0:02:230:02:27

-..pipes from Africa

-and India and Sweden.

0:02:270:02:31

-Millions and billions and

-trillions and bazillions of pipes.

0:02:310:02:36

-But that wasn't all.

0:02:380:02:40

-At the bottom

-of the centre of the Earth...

0:02:400:02:43

-..there's a plughole

-the size of America.

0:02:430:02:47

-All the water from all the pipes

-from every sink in the world...

0:02:470:02:53

-..goes down this hole

-and fills the seas.

0:02:530:02:56

-There, the oceans are made.

0:02:570:02:59

-When you pull the chain...

0:03:010:03:03

-..waves are created.

0:03:050:03:07

-"Wow," I said, "That's incredible."

0:03:080:03:13

-My big brother, Dil,

-was in the living room...

0:03:180:03:21

-..playing games on his computer.

0:03:210:03:24

-I told him what Taid had told me.

0:03:240:03:27

-"That's not what's down

-the plughole!

0:03:280:03:31

-"I know what's down there.

-I've seen it."

0:03:310:03:35

-Dil told me a very different story.

0:03:500:03:54

-The toothpaste

-that goes down the plughole...

0:03:580:04:01

-..all joins together

-and becomes a toothpaste monster.

0:04:010:04:05

-It's like a huge worm and it

-lives in the pipes under the house.

0:04:120:04:17

-When everyone is asleep,

-the toothpaste monster...

0:04:180:04:22

-..comes up

-and out through the sink...

0:04:220:04:25

-..and steals hair

-from the faces of men like Dad.

0:04:250:04:28

-When Dad shaves every morning...

0:04:290:04:31

-..the toothpaste monster

-collects all the hairs...

0:04:310:04:35

-..and makes a wig.

0:04:360:04:37

-Of course, that was nonsense.

0:04:400:04:43

-Or was it? Dad's head is bald -

-there's not a hair in sight.

0:04:440:04:49

-Well, I decided to ask Dad

-if it was true.

0:04:500:04:53

-Dad was in the garden

-cutting the hedge.

0:05:000:05:03

-Out I went to ask him

-if the reason he had no hair...

0:05:030:05:08

-..was because the toothpaste monster

-had stolen all his hair.

0:05:090:05:13

-"Who told you that?" asked Dad.

0:05:140:05:19

-"Dil," I replied.

0:05:190:05:20

-I told him about Taid's story...

0:05:210:05:23

-..about the pipes

-at the centre of the Earth.

0:05:230:05:26

-"I know what's down the plughole,"

-he said.

0:05:260:05:29

-"Taid and Dil are wrong."

0:05:290:05:32

-This is what Dad said.

0:05:400:05:42

-"When you pour water

-down the plughole...

0:05:470:05:50

-"..it goes down the pipe,

-around the u-bend...

0:05:500:05:55

-"..into another pipe...

0:05:550:05:57

-.."and around another bend

-until it trickles out...

0:05:570:06:03

-"..into the largest water pistol

-in the whole wide world.

0:06:050:06:10

-"It was built by the King of Spain."

0:06:100:06:15

-"Why does the King of Spain need the

-largest water pistol in the world?"

0:06:160:06:21

-"To turn off the sun at night, of

-course, because people can't sleep."

0:06:220:06:27

-"How do they switch it on when

-it's time to get up in the morning?"

0:06:270:06:32

-There was a long pause.

0:06:320:06:34

-"Ask your mother," replied Dad

-as he continued trimming the hedge.

0:06:400:06:45

-Mam was walking through the door

-when I returned to the house.

0:06:490:06:53

-Every Saturday,

-she goes running with our dog, Bob.

0:06:530:06:57

-She loves running.

0:06:580:07:00

-Bob doesn't.

0:07:000:07:02

-It takes longer

-than Mam would wish...

0:07:020:07:05

-..but she says Bob needs

-the exercise.

0:07:050:07:08

-I told her I wanted to know

-what was down the plughole.

0:07:080:07:12

-I also told her

-what Taid and Dil and Dad had said.

0:07:120:07:16

-I asked her which one

-was telling the truth.

0:07:170:07:20

-"None of them," she replied.

-"I know what's down there."

0:07:200:07:26

-Down the plughole

-is the topsy turvy world.

0:07:330:07:37

-"Topsy turvy world?

-What on earth is that?"

0:07:380:07:42

-"Well," replied Mam...

0:07:470:07:48

-.."In the topsy turvy world,

-everything is topsy turvy."

0:07:490:07:53

-"Cats bark, dogs miaow.

0:07:540:07:58

-"Both of them fly, of course.

0:07:590:08:01

-"The sea is in the sky

-and the sky is in the sea.

0:08:020:08:06

-"Everyone walks and talk backwards.

0:08:060:08:08

-"The outside is indoors

-and everyone lives in trees."

0:08:080:08:11

-"But why is that down our plughole,

-Mam?" I asked.

0:08:260:08:31

-"It's not down our plughole,"

-she answered.

0:08:310:08:34

-"We're down their plughole."

0:08:340:08:39

-She laughed and hurried upstairs

-for a shower.

0:08:390:08:42

-I was so confused by now.

0:08:430:08:45

-Was there a toothpaste monster

-down the plughole?

0:08:520:08:56

-Was there a topsy turvy world?

0:08:560:08:59

-Was the largest water pistol

-in the world down there?

0:08:590:09:03

-On the other hand, that might

-well be the centre of the Earth...

0:09:040:09:08

-..and it's where the oceans

-are made.

0:09:080:09:11

-It might all be true.

-It might all be nonsense.

0:09:110:09:15

-My family

-might be absolutely bonkers.

0:09:150:09:18

-And so, I returned to the sink

-to take a closer look.

0:09:260:09:30

-I even flashed my torch

-down the plughole..

0:09:300:09:33

-..just in case

-the toothpaste monster was lurking.

0:09:330:09:37

-It wasn't, of course.

0:09:380:09:41

-From nowhere,

-a little spider crawled out...

0:09:410:09:45

-..and waved one of its legs at me.

0:09:450:09:47

-"Hello, Mr Spider," I said,

-"Can you help me?"

0:09:520:09:58

-"What's down there?

0:09:580:10:00

-"I've asked my family and

-I can't say I believe any of them."

0:10:000:10:06

-The little spider peered up

-at me and said...

0:10:060:10:10

-.."I've seen many a plughole.

0:10:150:10:19

-"I've spent much of my time

-down them.

0:10:190:10:21

-"I haven't seen that much at all -

-just a red hair and a frozen pea.

0:10:220:10:28

-"A contact lens and a baby's teeth

-and Auntie Mali's earring.

0:10:280:10:34

-"Some carrots

-and toothpaste bubbles...

0:10:350:10:39

-"..a cotton bud

-and Heledd's curly locks.

0:10:390:10:42

-"Once, a chopstick and a prawn...

0:10:430:10:46

-"..and I've seen more

-than my fair share of sweetcorn.

0:10:470:10:50

-"I've never seen a monster

-and that's the truth.

0:10:510:10:55

-"Not a huge pipe

-that leads underground.

0:10:550:10:59

-"Not a topsy turvy world

-or the King of Spain...

0:10:590:11:02

-"..the drain just leads out

-to the street.

0:11:030:11:07

-"I hope this helps you, my friend...

0:11:080:11:11

-"..now how do I get out of here -

-I want to go!"

0:11:110:11:15

-Carefully, I picked the spider

-out of the sink...

0:11:160:11:21

-..and thanked him

-for his wise and sensible words.

0:11:220:11:26

-And now we all know

-what's hiding down the plughole.

0:11:270:11:31
