Festival 2012: The making of Crow puppet show

6 June 2012 Last updated at 01:50 BST

The puppet company behind the successful stage play War Horse has a new project in development based on Ted Hughes' Crow poems.

Billed as one of the highlights of the London 2012 Festival, the show will combine dance, theatre and poetry with puppets at the centre of the story.

The artistic director of Handspring Puppet Company UK, Mervyn Millar, gave BBC News a glimpse of the creations in the show.

The world premiere of Crow is on 21 June, previews from June 18. Video produced by Rachel Curtis.
