1969 (UK)    The final installment of the Trumptonshire trilogy (Camberwick Green, Trumpton, Chigley) is on the surface the usual mix of colourful characters and jolly ditties, but it's hard to ignore other ideas at work. Camberwick Green had placed old rural ways and modern values side by side, but Chigley went a step further, reacting to Prime Minster Harold Wilson's 1963 call for a new Britain "forged in the white heat of scientific revolution".

Camberwick Green & Trumpton. A pair of magical 'stop motion' animations set in fictional villages each with their larger than life characters. Who could forget windy Miller going in and out of his windmill defying the blades of the mill as they turned. I was fascinated by the opening sequence of Camberwick Green, where a musical box turned and a figure rise up out of it. That would be the featured character in that particular episode. The shows were narrated by children's favourite Brian…

a lunchtime programme entitled 'Trumpton' - the characters were full of life, happy, especially Windy Miller who would always manage to walk out of his windmill without having his head chopped off by the sails !!

1st class Camberwick Green  Created by Gordon Murray and narrated by Brian Cant, this was a series of BBC animations about the ordinary folk of a rural village. A different character was central to each episode, one of the most popular being the windmill owner Windy Miller. Thirteen 15-minute episodes were filmed in colour in 1966, and sequels were spawned in the form of Trumpton and Chigley.
