Posted on February 25, 2013 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Bob Godfrey was one of the UK's most famous and influential animators. Among his credits are Roobarb and Henry's Cat, which anyone who grew up in the 70s and 80s in the UK will almost certainly remember. He died last week, as did Richard Briars, the star of Ever Decreasing Circles, The Good Life et al, and also the narrator of Roobarb. Here's how BBC2's Newsnight paid tribute.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
