Great – Isambard Kingdom Brunel

BETWIXT ROOBARB and NOAH AND NELLY, Sir BOB GODFREY gave us this tribute to the man who, as we are told in a song so ace you can’t believe it’s from the mid-70s (in the style of Kate Bush, no less) “opened up the West”. RICHARD BRIERS voiced Brunel, HARRY FOWLER was your chirping Cockney narrator and PETER HAWKINS (NOAH AND NELLY, CAPTAIN PUGWASH etc) a good many others. Script by, among others, JOE McGRATH, mastermind of DIGBY, THE BIGGEST DOG IN THE WORLD.

    Much more deserving Brit-animated Oscar winner than anything by bloody Nick Park…amen to that.

    Time that someone swallowed their pride and allowed this a release on DVD.

    No, TV Cream does not hate Wallace and Gromit, TV Cream is just sneering because everyone loves Wallace and Gromit whereas no-one’s heard of this (sadly) and somehow that’s Nick Park’s fault because he’s popular and successful and acclaimed. They’re showing off that their nostalgia is better than yours, basically, and frankly it’s uncountable miles beneath them.

    Or, alternately, some of the TV Cream writers, including the one who wrote this entry, hate Wallace And Gromit.
