Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew…





I was saddened to learn the other day of the death of Gordon Murray, creator of the wonderful children’s TV programmes Trumpton, Camberwick Green and Chigley. It seems to have received nowhere near the media attention it deserves, so I thought I would do my little bit.



Most Brits of my age will have fond memories of those wonderful stop-motion stories and the motley collection of foam ‘puppets’. As a child I was fascinated by the settings and characters. I also found it all cosy and reassuring…



..and as an adult still do today – great to watch when you need cheering up!
