Animation on a Thursday…

Here’s a treat.
Pan-Tele-Tron.
A BAFTA award winning animation directed by Digby Turpin, about the history of telecommunications.
It was made for Philips Electrical in 1957, but some fabulous person at BBC Four dug it up and broadcasted it again some months ago.

Digby Turpin by the way had previously been part of the design team on the classic 1954 version of Animal Farm and twenty or so years later made the animated children’s program “Little Blue” for Yorkshire Television.

Please down tools for about ten minutes and enjoy!
It’s fantastic!
