Over thirty years old and no CGI in sight, and it still enthralls small children and adults. Created with stop motion animation, and puppets wearing tiny trousers and knitted jumpers, and a dog made from fluffy fake fur, it has real depth of feeling and warmth. I always loved how the characters were named after the shipping forecast, or other maritime locations; Portland Bill, Cromarty, Ross, Dogger, Eddy Stone, Inspector Ronaldsway, Grandma Tiree, Finisterre, Fastnet and Mrs Lundy. There's so much love and detail here, the hand made and furnished sets, and the expressions and gestures the puppets, are done so beautifully and with such care. One of the lovliest moments is where the dog befriends a penguin, and the walk away together with the penguin putting his arm around the dog. How cute can you get? The stories are fun and heartwarming and everything about it is just magical.

The second and hopefully not the last of Portland Bill DVDs, just as good as the other and well worth your money!

and so do I. Soft, gentle and fun for small children. Just as I remembered it from my own childhood.
