Year first aired: 1975  |  Producer: FilmFair  |  Ivor Wood’s Role: Designer, Animator and Director

Where two mediums collide, Paddington Bear’s style was masterminded by Wood to eliminate the need for lots of puppets in the crowded London scenes. Wood animated most of the initial series with animator Barry Leith stepping into the frame for the following series’. The show was written by the books author Michael Bond and narrated by Michael Hordern.
