Here Is A Box, A Musical Box

Phill Jupitus presents a fond tribute to Camberwick Green to mark its 40th anniversary.

The programme - and its stablemates Chigley and Trumpton - were the brainchild of string puppeteer Gordon Murray.

When Gordon met animators Bob Bura and John Hardwick, he produced a pilot film of Camberwick Green, financed out of his own pocket, in 1965.

The BBC decided to commission a series of 13 episodes for transmission the following year.
