TV Cream


John Ryan, RIP

Popped it, souled outIt’s the final cut (out).

Farewell to the man behind [cref 4168 CAPTAIN PUGWASH], [cref 7464 SIR PRANCELOT], [cref 2904 MARY MUNGO AND MIDGE] and ARK STORIES (lest we forget, once voted one of TVC’s Top Ten Most Mediocre Programmes).

Visually endearing animations with not much story to them at half mast.

    Richard Baker’s narration for the introduction of “Mary, Mungo and Midge”, along with the accompanying music, is a total Proustian rush for me. I’m instantly three years old again, on my mother’s knee.
