Grandma Bricks Of Swallow Street

These brief stop-motion films were used to illustrate the short stories read by Geoffrey Hayes on the Thames TV series Rainbow.

The Swallow Street residents were a mixed bag of folk, old and young, and of different ethnic backgrounds.

Grandma Bricks was joined by Willie and Susan, and Joey, and a dog called Fusby, with a supporting cast including Abel Jones the garage man, Mr Bep, Mr Grindle, little Clare Nap and Barney.
