Hello everybody. Just a note to let you know how the Clanger Script book is coming along. We have some lovely introductory contributions from national treasure Michael Palin; stargazer extraordinaire Maggie Aderin-Pocock and Smallfilms scholar Dr Chris Pallant. 
       I've been hard at work banging out introductions for each of the episodes as well as reminiscences of the production itself, and the Unbound team have been down to Canterbury Museum to snap some exclusive photos of the original Clangers and the rest of the cast. Also, after a certain amount of rummaging about, I'm pleased and relieved to announce the original script of Vote for Froglet has been unearthed and will be included in all its slightly hazy 1970s typewriter-ink glory.
      The Unbound design department is getting the look all sorted out and we'll be posting up a sneak-peek just as soon as possible. We're aiming to get the book out in November barring any delays, but I'll keep you updated along the way. So all is on schedule and the countdown has begun! Thanks for your patience.

We never had the TV show here in Australia (much to my chagrin), but as a child I became a big fan reading the picture books and annuals which thankfully did travel over. Excited to hear about the book coming along, sounds fantastic.
