Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Rod Hull


Thanks Mary and also Ray Da Silva for the identification of the Rod Hull and
his Emu in the video clip.

Rod Hull died more than 10 years ago when he fell off the roof of his house,
but see also http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/298801.stm for a
lo-res collection of clips the BBC put together of his TV appearances
after he died. Apparently, Hull's son continues to perform with Emu on
occasion.

I'll be including both this clip and the earlier one in the PuppeteersUK
online index (http://www.puppeteersuk.com/videolistintro.asp).

Matthew
