Subject: Trumpton creator Gordon Murray dies aged 95

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/30/16 at 5:30 am

Gordon Murray, creator and puppeteer of the popular BBC children's series Trumpton, has died at the age of 95. His son-in-law, William Mollett, confirmed the news in a statement to the BBC. The Trumptonshire Trilogy - Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley - were shown weekly by the corporation from 1966 for 20 years.  The programmes were later repeated by Channel 4 and then Nickelodeon Junior. Camberwick Green, which was made using stop-motion animation, was the first children's show to be aired in colour on the BBC in 1966.
