Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley

Welcome back to the podcast where it’s OK to bang on about what it was like to grow up as a child in 1970’s Britain and where television was at the heart of our childhoods.

In this episode we consider Camberwick GreenTrumpton and Chigley, aka The Trumpton Trilogy. These three shows hold a special place in many people’s hearts and we try and work out why. From the musical box in the opening credits of Camberwick Green, to the brilliant musical score, not forgetting the narration of the legendary Brian Cant, every part of these programmes takes us back to a simple age sitting on the carpet. literally watching with Mother.

Our host Oliver reveals an early Trumpton related obsession with the telephone and are there parallels between Lord Belborough and Mr Brackett and Bruce Wayne and Alfred?
