Bod, BBC 1975

Writer: Michael Cole
Narrators: John Le Mesurier, Maggie Henderson
Music: Derek Griffiths
Producer: Michael Cole

There is an interesting rights issue where Bod is concerned. Although each episode of the TV series contained a Bod story, an Alberto Frog story, a song and a game of Bod Snap, the video release contains only the Bod stories.

The reason behind this is due to the ownership of copyrights. Bod was originally released as a book, penned by Michael Cole and his wife Joanne. Cole later became a producer for the BBC, and the series of programmes was created. The rights for the Bod stories lies with BodFilms Limited whereas the remaining work is copyright of the BBC.
