{PROGRAMME: HUMAN BEINGS: AT WORK AND PLAY} Veteran British animator Bob Godfrey (1921-2013) answers the question ""What Is Animation?"" His answer is by turns witty, iconoclastic and insightful and all the while is acted out by a tiny man in a bowler hat. This hand-drawn film is based upon an interview recorded by Martin Pickles at Bob’s Acme Studio in South East London.
