Trumpton, along with Camberwick Green (which were both very similar) were a couple of my favourite childhood TV programmes in the 1960s.

I don't remember this episode though, which aimed to teach kids a little about letterpress printing.

For those who don't want to watch the whole thing, the action starts at around the 2-minute mark.


I have a vague recollection of Mickey Mouse operating a Linotype machine, as well. Anyone seen that?
