The Clangers memorably spoke in a language played on swanee whistles.

No one expected them to have scripts.

But they did. And these have never been made public until now.

Clangers: The Complete Scripts 1969-1974 is the ultimate compilation of 27 scripts from the original series in one lavishly illustrated volume. In this charming collection edited by Dan Postgate, these previously unseen scripts give new insight into a beloved series originally created by Oliver Postgate. 

The joyful revelation that the Clangers had actual words for every single scene brings these tiny characters to life in a way that's never been seen before.

Within this collection, you'll also discover:

  • Oliver Postgate's special musical notation for each episode;
  • Peter Firmin's illustrations from the original 'bible' for the show;
  • Original sketches by Firmin showing how the creatures, including the clangers, soup dragon, and froglets evolved;
  • Photographs of the sets and the original models;
  • The knitting patterns for the original clangers;
  • Photos of other ephemera including the memorable swanee whistle.

This is the ultimate Clangers book: perfect as a nostalgia gift and filled with glorious tidbits about the series. And for those of you who really, really love this little mice-family, you'll be pleased to know there's a limited number of swanee whistles you can purchase with your pledge...
