Wombles composer praises TV comeback

The Wombles of Wimbledon Common, the children's programme about lovable litter-picking creatures, is making a TV comeback on Channel 5.

BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast talked to musician Mike Batt, who composed the music for the series, as well as creating The Wombles pop act who enjoyed a string of hits in the 1970s.

Mr Batt said the show, which will be made over the next two years by the TV company Serious Lunch, will look "much cleaner and nicer" because of computer generated animation.
