A sequel, of sorts, to Camberwick Green but set in the larger, nearby town of Trumpton. Each episode opens with the town hall clock and ends with the fire brigade band playing. Every show tells the story of one of the townsfolk.

I have very fond memories of this show from my childhood. Hosted by the deliciously barking mad Micheal Bentine this was a delightful show that could be enjoyed by people of all ages.
The Pottys were essentially small puppets given voice and character by Mr Bentine, and would typically re-enact scenarios familiar to British audiences (I recall a prisoner of war sketch set in World War 2).
Micheal Bentine was, of course, well known to audiences as part of the Goon show troupe of comedy performers
Its a great shame that this wonderfully eccentric TV series has not seen the light of day since. Mr Bentine is sadly missed !
