This short animation from 1976 was made by Bill Mather, a Bristol-based animator. It pioneered the technique of animating to an unscripted conversation, which in this case was a clandestine recording of his own son’s choirboy audition. This took place in St Mary Redcliffe church, with the choirmaster Bryan Anderson. The film was the pilot for a BBC series that became Animated Conversations, which in turn led to the TV series Creature Comforts.
