Episode Two: Something To Say
In the sixties the irreverent side of animation came through in the trippy delights of Yellow Submarine, counter-culture classics like Monty Python's Flying Circus and dark modern visions such as Monkey Dust, the history of animation looks at how the genre became synonymous with countreculture.
The series goes behind the scenes looking at the making of the Beatles' film 'Yellow Submarine' with makers Bob Godfrey, John Coates and Jimmy Murakami as well as looking at how animation was used in Tony Richardson movies 'Charge of the Light Brigade' with Richard Williams. As Britain entered the seventies Terry Gilliam began his work as an animator on 'Monty Python' while Gerald Scarfe talks about the Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'. Far more dark topics like 'When The Wind Blows and 'Monkey Dust' show how far British animation as moved forward in the last twenty years.
