Captain Pugwash creator Ryan dies

Fifty years ago I sat clued to the TV set watching Captain Pugwash. Just one channel because we hadn't got "commercial" yet! Looking at the YouTube selection it seems to have weathered the ravages of time and is still a good show. Perhaps not PC enough for the BBC, though.

John Ryan was ably supported by the many voices of Peter Hawkins, who did then all! I bet only six people worked on those programmes. Now, there's a lesson to be learnt by the managers of today.
