Trying to squeeze 35 years into a few minutes is not easy, and so much has been left out. It's interesting to watch how technology has changed over the decades...some of the early stuff has been taken from VHS or equally archaic formats. Most of the animation and direction is mine, save for the clips from Hamilton Mattress, Rupert Bear and Toby's Travelling Circus where I was just the director. Thanks to all the lovely puppets from Mackinnon Saunders and all the crews, and long suffering producers.
Thanks to the Toby editor, Tim Owen, for putting this together with me.
There are clips from The Wind in the Willows, Brambley Hedge, Next, Screen Play, Rigoletto, Achilles, Gilbert and Sullivan - the very models, Hamilton Mattress, Rupert Bear, Plume, Tchaikovsky, Toby's Travelling Circus and a few commercials.
The music if by the glorious Penguin café Orchestra.
