Bekonscot features on TV an awful lot - and this time it was for the popular 1980s kids series "Rainbow". Zippy, Bungle and George introduce the programme about miniature things - and we've edited the feature down to show just the Bekonscot bits that the staff helped set up. Credits at the end sequence.

Bekonscot is the world's oldest true model village - having been started in 1929 in Beaconsfield, England. We're still here now, having probably more fun than we should whilst at work. It's a super place to come with the family - we're only a few miles outside London and near the M25 and M40 motorways. Come over, see our model trains, castles and towns - and have a nice cup of tea.

Part of the Bekonscot Model Village Archive Collection. Please contact us on for full details or if you have film footage that you'd like to share with us. We're a not-for-profit organisation with all monies raised being donated to local and national charities every year. If you were involved in the production of this video too and would like us to remove or credit it, please do just drop us a line - we've only put it up for education and historic purposes. Tally-ho!
