Ever wondered how Aardman began? Or how the company became an award-winning animation studio?

Over on we’ve started uploading a number of Podcasts looking into the history the studio and we thought the animation fans on Wallace & might be interested in having a look...So keep a look out on this thread as we add each new podcast and feel free to comment on what you see!

Episode 1: The Early Days

Episode 2: The Birth of Morph

Episode 3: The Art of Lip Syncing

Episode 4: Dave and Pete meet Nick Park

Episode 5: The Move into Commercials

Episode 6: Making Feature Films

Dear Kirsten,
I've seen the two podcasts with pleasure but now I'm wondering if the Podcast also could be offered aín iTunes as an iTunes Podcast. That would be great, so I could take it with my iPod everywhere I like.
I love Bitzer

lad - I never knew Purple & Brown was an anything creation apart from a user!

Gromit lad Posted: Mar 28th 2010

Your talking about you didnt know Purple & Brown was from Aardman, or that it was just made by some other place?

Plus, I've noticed Aardman has written the title of their creations with a & if theres two creations together.

I mean I didn't know that Purple & Brown was a TV programme I thought it was just a user

Grumblefish Posted: Mar 31st 2010

I agree it should be on Itunes

KirstenW Aardman Staff Posted: Apr 8th 2010

Thanks Concon. What did everyone think? I love those early animations that came from real people talking. This episode from Conversation Pieces is a good one

I love Bitzer Posted: Apr 8th 2010

So those episodes are real stories? Or are they made in such way trhat it seems like real stories? It's very good, anyway =)
It's great what you can find at YouTube about many Morph films and all the other films....great!
Thanks for the link, KirstenW :)

I love Bitzer Posted: Apr 8th 2010

I'm watching all the Purble&Brown episodes for now 15 minutes, I think, and can't stop laughting
They are soo funny ;)

KirstenW Aardman Staff Posted: Apr 8th 2010

I love Bitzer - yes, all the recordings are real conversations in the 'Conversation Pieces' series. I think that's what makes them so good! I love Purple and Brown as well, very funny ;)

I love Bitzer Posted: Apr 8th 2010

Yeah, there should be some more episodes! I just search the web if there are some DVDs you can buy with P&B on it
There are so many funny things to find at the Aardman Commercials Channel of YouTube: I for example didn't know before watching some videos there that Aardman also makes animations as advertisement for big companies.
I've also watched the "Conservation Pieces" episode you've sent the link one time again, everytime I watch such an English film again and again I understand more: the connections of the film to the real live etc.!
That's great

Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 8th 2010

Why thankyou KirstenW! |-) Tehe

concon Posted: Apr 8th 2010

They should bring back Pib and Pog! They are awesome!

womble1 Posted: Apr 10th 2010

if you type pib and pog it has got some of the videos on you tube

KirstenW Aardman Staff Posted: Apr 12th 2010

There are some Pib and Pog episodes on the Aardman Darkside youtube channel, here if you want to have a look!

@Purple&Brown - lol! ;)

I love Bitzer Posted: Apr 12th 2010

Now I know why those episodes are at the "darkside" channel of aardman

But they are great! Are they also made out of plasticine or out of the same material like the STS characters?
I'll now watch some more, thanks for the link Kirsten

concon Posted: Apr 12th 2010

LOL, thanks Kirsten! Loved the X Factor one. ;)
