Narrator: Peppa and her friends are at their playgroup.
Madame Gazelle: Today we are going to make a time capsule.
Peppa Pig: What’s a time capsule?
Madame Gazelle: A time capsule is something that will show people in the future how we lived.
Peppa Pig: How?
Madame Gazelle: We’ll put special things in this box and then we’ll bury it in the school garden.
Suzy Sheep: Will it grow?
Madame Gazelle: No, Suzy. It will remain in the ground for many years.
Madame Gazelle: Now, what things should we put inside?
Peppa Pig: A comic.
Madame Gazelle: Very good, Peppa.
Suzy Sheep: Music.
Madame Gazelle: Very good, Suzy.
Danny Dog: A toy.
Pedro Pony: A coin.
Zoë Zebra: Stamps.
Rebecca Rabbit: A carrot.
Madame Gazelle: You do like carrots, don’t you, Rebecca?
Rebecca Rabbit: Yes.
Madame Gazelle: All those are excellent things to show our daily lives.
Peppa Pig: Madame Gazelle, what will the future be like?
Madame Gazelle: What do you think it will be like?
Peppa Pig: I think in the future I will live on the moon, and all my friends will come to visit.
Danny Dog: And I will fly a space rocket.
Peppa Pig: Hello.
Madame Gazelle: Now we’ll record a message for the people of the future.
Madame Gazelle: Say “Hello” to the future.
Peppa Pig: Hello to the future. You’re probably all living on the moon now.
Suzy Sheep: And going on holiday to Mars.
Danny Dog: And flying around in space rockets.
Madame Gazelle: Wonderful.
Narrator: It is nearly home time and all the parents have arrived.
Peppa Pig: Mummy, Daddy, we’ve made a time capsule.
Madame Gazelle: Ah, Daddy pig. You’re just in time to help us dig a hole.
Daddy Pig: Yes, of course.
Narrator: Daddy Pig is digging a hole in the school garden for the time capsule.
Daddy Pig: There.
Peppa Pig: Can we dig it up now?
Madame Gazelle: It will remain in the ground for many years.
Peppa Pig: Oh, but I can’t wait that long.
Madame Gazelle: Peppa, you are just like your daddy when he was little.
Peppa Pig: Am I?
Madame Gazelle: Yes, I remember when I was his teacher.
Peppa Pig: Did you teach my daddy?
Madame Gazelle: Yes, I taught all of your mummies and daddies. Didn’t I?
Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, Mummy Sheep, Miss Rabbit, Mrs Dog, Mr Zebra, Mrs Pony, Mrs Cat: Yes, Madame Gazelle.
Madame Gazelle: When your mummies and daddies were little, they made a time capsule too.
Daddy Pig: Yes, we did. We buried it next to a little tree.
Peppa Pig: Can we dig it up?
Madame Gazelle: Yes. I think we buried it over here.
Daddy Pig: Oh, I thought it was a much smaller tree.
Madame Gazelle: It was a long time ago. The tree has grown a bit since then.
Daddy Pig: I’ve found something.
Daddy Pig: It’s our old time capsule.
All the Parents and Children: Hurrah!
Daddy Pig: I can’t wait to open it.
Madame Gazelle: Stand back, children.
All the Parents and Children: Yes, Madame Gazelle.
Madame Gazelle: What do we have here?
Madame Gazelle: An old comic.
Daddy Pig: That was my favourite comic.
Madame Gazelle: A tin toy.
Mrs Dog: My favourite toy.
Madame Gazelle: Music.
Mummy Sheep: My favourite record.
Madame Gazelle: And a very old carrot.
Miss Rabbit: That’s mine.
Rebecca Rabbit: What a good choice, Mummy.
Madame Gazelle: And a videotape of your mummies and daddies when they were little.
The Children: Oo-oo.
Peppa Pig: Who’s the little piggy in the glasses?
Mummy Pig: Aw, that’s Daddy Pig.
Mummy Pig: Oh, and that’s me.
Little Daddy Pig: Hello to the future.
Peppa Pig: What a squeaky voice you have.
Little Daddy Pig: You’re probably living on the moon now.
Peppa Pig: Silly little Daddy Pig.
