Aardman Animations celebrates 40 years in Bristol

The creators of Wallace and Gromit, Morph and Shaun the Sheep are celebrating 40 years in the animation business..

BBC News, 5th September 2016

Here's a treat: a compilation first shown in Christmas 2002, followed at 7.25pm by a rerun of The Wrong Trousers. Only 15 minutes long, Cracking Contraptions actually began life as a pictorial calendar. The inventions are all brilliantly funny, but top marks in the first full World Cup week must go to the Preston North End Soccamatic.
