Trumptonshire Unboxing

Fabulous Films continue their noble quest of nostalgia with another classic of children’s TV making its Blu-ray debut alongside remastered DVDs – the beloved Trumptonshire trilogy, comprised of Camberwick Green, Trumpton, and Chigley. These beautifully animated and charmingly quaint tales are bright and crisp on Blu-ray, and available individually or as a bumper boxset containing all 3 series. Our Paula reviewed the set here, and we unboxed below…

CAMBERWICK GREEN

Here is a box, a musical box, wound up and ready to play. But this box can hide a secret inside! Can you guess what is in it today? Windy Miller cordially invites you to join him and the rest of the Camberwick Green village folk in Gordon Murray’s timeless classic. This iconic British animation, narrated by Brian Cant was the first children’s television programme filmed in colour. It was originally broadcast in 1966 and was shown weekly by the BBC for the next 20 years. 

TRUMPTON

Here is the clock, The Trumpton clock, Telling the time…steadily, sensibly; never too quickly, never too slowly…Telling the time for Trumpton. So take a trip to Trumpton and join Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub and the rest of the Trumpton townsfolk in Gordon Murray’s timeless animation classic. This iconic British animation, narrated by Brian Cant was originally broadcast in 1967 and was shown weekly by the BBC for the next 20 years. 

CHIGLEY 

”It’s a lovely day in Chigley.” Lord Bellborough and Bracket are taking Bessie out for a run to Treadle’s Wharf and the workers are making fine biscuits at the biscuit factory. When the whistle blows at the end of a hard day’s work, everyone makes their way to the park to enjoy the 6 o’clock Tea Dance. 

Now enjoy all original episodes once again, fully restored from the original film negatives, on DVD and Blu-ray from Fabulous Films
