It will also look in more detail at children’s drama; factual programmes; puppets; animation; ‘Blue Peter;’ and Ragdoll Productions.The exhibition is being created by the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry and is supported by the BBC, ITV, KaleidoscopeThe University of Warwick Department of Film and TV Studies and the Children’s Media Foundation.
