To help celebrate Wallace & Gromit’s 20th Anniversary, BBC2 are filming an edition of The Culture Show at the Aardman studios in Bristol.


Wallace & Gromit's 20th Anniversary will be celebrated on the Culture Show. Presented by Lauren Laverne and Mark Kermode the show will air on 19th November and look at the duo’s first introduction to the British public in A Grand Day Out in 1989 and their later escapades in The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave, A Curse of the Were Rabbit and A Matter of Loaf and Death.

Nick Park will talk to Mark Kermode about his creative inspirations, from The Beano comic to the films of Alfred Hitchcock, while some of Wallace & Gromit’s high profile fans, including Terry Wogan, Jonathan Ross and Ian Hislop, explain how and why they fell in love with this one man and his dog. Lauren Laverne will also trace the wider history of Aardman Animations, from its origins in the 1970s and the creation of the now iconic character ‘Morph’, to its more recent collaboration with Dreamworks.

In addition to the above, Mark Kermode, Simon Mayo and an audience of film fans will discuss the greatest and most influential animations of all time, looking at Snow White, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Wall-E and Dougal and the Blue Cat, and debating the merits of stop-frame animation, CGI and Pixar’s contemporary brilliance.

Don’t miss Wallace & Gromit’s 20th Anniversary on The Culture Show, 19th November on BBC2.

That's it - my DVD recorder will be set for The Culture Show, phone off the hook, broadband and mobile switched off... I will be officially NOT AT HOME whilst this is on!

... then I'll be switched on after the end of the prog!
