The Punch and Judy Show
Mr Punch - the most famous puppet character of all time, whose comic irreverence gave "Punch" magazine its title - has been dispensing his own brand of slapstick with anarchic vitality since his first appearance in England in 1662.
Entertainer and lecturer, Bertie Pearce, explores how a puppet descended from the Italian Clown Pulcinella has managed to inspire opera, ballet and even punk rock whilst achieving an enduring popularity that has seen his likeness appear on goods ranging from Victorian silverware to computer video games!
