    BBC 2 have outdone themselves tonight (Thursday), I sat down to watch a bit of Science Shack at 1930 but have been engrossed right up until 10 by Time Commanders, an excellent battle recreation programme followed by an outstanding documentary on the building of the Great Eastern which had me more interested than anything else I've seen this year! Excellent dialogue, effects and acting - I genuinely felt for the shipwrights and Brunel himself.

    All together now!

    (sings)
    It's a big one!
    What a big one!
    The size of it, you can't believe your eyes!

    etc.

    Ah, Bob Godfrey. We need more film-makers like him....

    (In case anyone hasn't the faintest idea what I am talking about, Bob Godfrey was a British animator - responsible for "Roobarb and Custard" among other things. In 1975 he made a mostly-animated film called "Great: Isembard Kingdom Brunel" which, if you haven't seen, you ought to. I think it won the "best animated short film" oscar that year.)

    Yes it did win the oscar: although Bob was in the toilet at the time and failed to pick it up in person when his name was called.

    He "graduated" same year as me...well he picked up an honorary degree in animation the same year I picked up my real one.

    HI,

    Just for a my fifteen seconds of fame, I've met Bob Godfrey in person, at an animation festival/discussion in Norwich, where I used to live. Good bloke, and he showed us some of the very few remaining "Rubarb" and "Henry's Cat" animation sketches/pics he has.

    Oh, and anyone remember his more "adult" animated output,like that short "Henry, Nine To Five" and "Kama Sutra Rides Again"? :D Very, very funny!

    Pooch
