Use the track select tool (A) together with the shift key. Select the left most clip and drag the contents of the timeline to the right...
With the timeline selected, Control-A to select all clips and with the select tool (V) select any track and drag to the right. They will all move.
if you pull the clip in, holding the Ctrl (PC) / Cmd (Mac) - Key and you pull it to the beginning of the timeline, you insert edit your clip and the rest will move to the right.Once you have a complex timeline with more stuff in there, you'll find this faster and cleaner then moving it all then inserting, then removing the gap (ripple delete)
also try this:
set yout in and out points for the clip in the source monitor,
in the timelineput the playhead ("current time indicator") to the point, you want your clip to be inserted (in this case Home-Button )
then hit the comma-key, by default the insertedit.
this is actually (for me) the quickest way of doing this. Let the NLE move stuff around for you, so you can worry about the editing

Jon, thank you very much for your time in helping me out. All is well.
Thanks you Felix for helping me out. I've got it now. Spark
Thanks Harm, it all worked out perfectly thanks to several people who came
to my rescue. It's all so easy when you know what you're doing.
premiere: it is a little magic box indeed, Harm ;-)
