Can’t add any more to the ones I put on Volume 1 of this thread.
Good to see Ethel and Ernest included. Of course Raymond Briggs also did When the Wind Blows and The Snowman.

I never thought of The Snowman as I am growing up watching this film, I haven’t seen When the Wind Blows as that sounded like a really good film
