The Secret Supergroup of the Forbidden Music Room
A short animation adapted from one of the graphic chapters in Small Town England, this one highlights the slight culture clash between crap teen windbandery and groovy East Midlands hard rock combos. It’s all true except for my hair – in reality it wasn’t quite that yellow.

Language Lessons from 1978
This highly educational short film was sort-of adapted from one of the chapters in Small Town England – set in France in 1978 – which in turn was inspired by the crazy genius of Le Français aujourd’hui, the legendary text that introduced French to a generation of 70s schoolkids (and helped to get me to a D in ‘O’ Level French).

Great Holiday Moments
The 1970s and early 1980s were filled with high-octane family holiday fun, as this short movie clip shows. As ever, no expense has been spared in the shooting and editing of this film.
Adapted from the illustration on p.209 of Small Town England (the bit just after the chapter on 50cc motorbikes).
