What was the title of the exhibition/show?
The title of the exhibition was Clangers,Bagpuss and Co.
Why did you choose to attend this exhibition/show?
I chose to go to this exhibition because I’ve always loved Bagpuss and I have been interested about how they used drawings to animate.
What did you see?
I saw Bagpuss,The Clangers and some other things like Kermit the frog and even an old Disney slide projector.
Who were the artists and what do they create?
The exhibition showed puppets and sets by Smallfilms. Peter Firmin made the puppets and did the drawings and he worked with Oliver Postgate who did the voices.
What were your first impressions?
My first impression was that the exhibition was smaller than I thought but it was well organised. It was amazing to see all of the different objects from the shows and there were lots of drawings on the walls.
Did you find anything particularly interesting to your personally?
I found the way they used to animate things interesting. There were drawings from Ivor the Engine and there were original drafts of scripts. They used pictures and stop motion but things are done on computers now.
What did you learn? Did it make you think about any art form differently?
I learnt about how they used to animate things and this was really interesting. It made me realise how hard they used to work to formulate one episode.
Did you enjoy the experience overall? Why?
Yes I enjoyed it because I learnt about different ways to make a TV programme.
