In 2015 the Clangers returned to television for what the production company described as series three- not a reboot. The could do this because they felt they carried over the ethos and values of the original together with Oliver Postgate the original creator with his son doing the screenplays for 13 episodes.
On Friday 19th February as part of animate Exeter the RAMM (Royal Albert Memorial Museum) hosted Chris Tichbourne the co-director of the 52 of the new new 10 minute episodes.
The rapt fifty strong audience, predominantly middle aged, with an odd smattering of under 8s were introduced to the history, clanger construction, test animations, sets then and now. However, the highlight may have been using with Major Clanger and that cheeky Soup Dragon.
