LATEST NEWS » WALLACE & GROMIT PRESENT: A WORLD OF INVENTION
Aardman Animations has been commissioned by the BBC to produce a brand new live action show featuring Wallace & Gromit.
Wallace & Gromit present: A World of Invention, will take a light-hearted and humorous look at real-life contraptions, gadgets and inventions and aims to inspire a whole new generation of innovative minds by showing them real, but mind-boggling, machines and inventions from around the world that have influenced Wallace’s ‘illustrious’ inventing career.
The show will be broadcast from Wallace’s basement, where he has created what he considers to be a ‘state of the art’ TV studio. Each episode will have its own ‘theme’, including Flying, Communication, Water and Space, and will made up of live action segments about real life inventors and inventions, with animated Gromit working on World of Invention links by Wallace and Gromit themselves.

how are they going 2 do live action?
Wow, looks cool! Also hope its broadcasted in Australia as well as US.....
Wow looks great!!!
Will there be a Production Blog on the new show? I hope so...
i don't know it kind of seems like a waste of time i mean what happens if Sallis buys the farm before you go back to Wallace and Gromit shorts/movies again because you spent those last years on a TV show the guy was 88 years old we might not hear him by the end of the shows season
By Live action Do you mean Live on Tv or previously recorded? Oh and I too hope there'll be production blog.
Oh and Vidpal, They record the dilog before animate, but they do need to write the scirpt first. Still, shaun's series took a long time to come up with...
And what's all this about peter sallis buying a farm? I seem to have missed that...
Buying the farm means to die, right?
yes, i happen to care about that happening
keiran - I'm afraid most of the images are under lock and key at the moment, we'll let you know when we're allowed to release more.
American fans - it's still very early in the production process so it's not been finalised in which countries the show will be broadcast, although I should think it will be a case of which stations want to acquire it!
Kameatrix - nice suggestion, we'll certainly keep it in mind for production.
Will it be on the same channel as what A matter of loaf and death? I'm american so would you have any idea what channel it might appear on...or is it unknown for now since its still in the making?....I WANT TO SEE IT!!!!!

Good news for Australian fans: http://www.broadcastnow.co.uk/news/international/new-wallace-and-gromit-heading-down-under/5006437.article
Sockeye BBC rocks!.....dodgy foundations perchance
The foundations of the BBC are sound... check out its history. It's not without its faults and failings like any other company, except their errors are made public as it is a public funded broadcaster and accountable. I'm forever indebted to them for Vision On, Morph, and ,
, ... the list goes on.
