The Life of Brian…..Cant

Hello, I’m Oliver Colling, and welcome back to your favourite blog about all things 70s TV; we’re thrilled to have you here.

Today, we are revisiting one of our most popular podcast episodes that definitely struck a chord with many of you – Camberwick Green, Trumpton, and Chigley, narrated by the iconic Brian Cant.

Brian’s voice, a harmonious blend of warmth and familiarity, was the soundtrack of our childhood. From the playful corridors of Play School to the enchanting streets of Trumpton, Brian was the invisible companion who breathed life into our favourite characters.

We’re transported back to a time where television was not just a pastime but an experience, a communal activity that brought families together, weaving memories that would last a lifetime.

Brian’s narration was not just heard; it was felt. Each word, each phrase, a friendly hand leading us into the magical worlds of imagination and wonder.

We remember the iconic musical box, the unveiling of beloved characters, and the enchanting worlds of Camberwick Green, Trumpton, and Chigley. A utopia where kindness reigned, and every day was a melody of harmony and peace.

Amidst these cherished memories, there lurks the eerie presence of Hamble, the doll from Play School, whose rigid and unsettling demeanour haunted the playful innocence of our childhood imaginations and continues to unsettle me to this very day!

Brian will not just be remembered for his voice but for a legacy of warmth, kindness, and the magical ability to turn ordinary moments into extraordinary memories.

As always, we’re eager to hear your thoughts, memories, and reflections. Reach out to us through social media or drop an email at

We also invite you to subscribe to the My 70’s TV Childhood podcast, where each episode is a journey, bridging the past and present of our beloved 70’s TV shows.

Until next time. Captain Flack, it’s over to you!
