Default reading tecplot time data in a single file

canopus is on a distinguished road
I have written the output from my CFD code in tecplot format.
Since tecplot licenses are few at my place I want to read them in paraview.

The data is of a 2D plane written over several time steps in a single filein ASCII format.
I could read in the data in paraview but do not know how to
separate the time data to make animation.
The whole thing is lumped in as Multiblock dataset.
However the separate data sets are labeled by the time which was also written in file.
I could isolate each of them by using filter extractblock but how to do animation?
Please advise.
