'Captain Pugwash' - A Talk by Isabel Ryan 29th November
Talk by Isabel Ryan, daughter of Pugwash's creator John Ryan
Ahoy there, Captain Pugwash fans!
A rare chance for an extra 'behind the scenes' peek at this popular pirate and his shipmates. Isabel will give a slide show and demonstrate original hand-made animations from the Pugwash television series of the 1960s and 70s. Discover how Pugwash originated and how he sailed from comic strip to storybook and TV screen. Meet John Ryan's other characters Mary Mungo and Midge, and Pugwash's medieval ancestor Sir Prancelot.
This talk complements the Captain Pugwash posters on display near the lecture theatre.
