Murray and Cant.

Murray and Cant; I mean no disrespect using these fine two men's second names and making them sound like a Dickensian legal firm. I am referring to Gordon Murray and Brian Cant. two men who collaborated , in Gordon Murray's case created, The Trumpton Trilogy of animated shows Trumpton, Chigley and Camberwick Green. Three benign and lovable little English villages where people got by by being kind and helpful to each other. Little folk tales where beautiful but minimally crafted by clever talented people and hark back to an age which maybe only ever really existed in the hearts and minds of those who watched and loved these shows and aspired to a kinder plain of existence. Sadly both men passed away this June;Brian on June the 17th and Gordon on 30th June. A bad, sad  June
