Sheffield TV star Michael Palin is to narrate a new series of The Clangers on children’s BBC channel CBeebies.
The show features pink, mouse-like creatures who live in craters covered by dustbin lids, whose noisy ‘clang’ gave the show its name. It first aired in 1969 on BBC One.
“The world of the Clangers is delightful and irresistible,” Palin said. “It’s a real pleasure and a great privilege to be a part of its return to television.”
