Just William

The BBC has taken three shots at Richmal Crompton's story over the years, and ITV had a bash in 1956 as well, but this 1975 production appears to be the most popular, arguably because of Bonnie Langford's performance as Violet Elizabeth Bott and her lisping catchphrase, "I'll thcweam and thcweam until I'm sick!" The titles credit both Pat Gavin and Terry Griffiths with graphic design; one imagines that Griffiths created the animation of William crashing through the LWT ident, before Gavin took over for the remainder of the sequence, but I'm prepared to be corrected on this hunch! (tx 06/02/1977-22/01/1978, two series & a special)
