After discovering this nearly a year ago I thought it would be a great opportunity to share this with you all. First aired on the BBC on 16th March 2003, programme Timeshift tells the story of The Magic Roundabout right from the early days and includes interviews with historians and both Ivor and Josiane Wood. Ivor speaks candidly about the show and remembers it as an ‘influential starting block’ to what was to be an incredible career
For all those Ivor Wood fans there is a great section starting at approx. 39 minutes that serves as a retrospective of Ivor’s work post The Magic Roundabout. This visual delight is introduced by film historian Brian Sibley, as ‘being created with a far higher degree of artistry’ than that of it’s predecessor. Highly commendable and very just words for Ivor’s pioneering and truly inspiring animations.
