'Clangers' Set To Return To TV After More Than 40 Years (VIDEO)

Readers of a certain age will be rather excited to hear that the 1970s children's programme, 'Clangers', is due to make a comeback.

The cult show, which features a family of long-nosed, mouse-like creatures who live on the moon, is getting a £5 million revamp ahead of it returning to the small screen in 2015.

The relaunch will be overseen by executive producer Peter Firmin, who dreamt up the original show.

Speaking about the revival, he said: "We hope to engage and entertain children of all ages and their families, just as Oliver and I did all those years ago.

"The new series will include great storytelling with lots of heart. It will also be technically improved.

‘When you watch the original Clangers you have to make allowances for the limitations of the animation techniques when it was made. It was magical for its time, but this is a new Clangers for a new age."
