Ahh, lying in bed on a Saturday morning, refusing to get up or dressed and catching up with iplayer, there's nothing better is there?
Just watched this wonderfully moving documentary about Ventriloquism - Nina Conti learnt her trade from mentor Ken Campbell and after his death she takes his bereaved puppets on their a pilgrimage to their final resting place - to talking dummy heaven.
You can catch up with it if you'd like, it's on the BBC iplayer here
Watching it also reminded me of another puppet-related documentary I'm super excited to see - Being Elmo which has just got a bi pre-order on Amazon from me :) There's just something about really strong human emotions coming from a non-human object that gets me every time...it's like I see things clearer that way. I guess it's the same feeling I get when I've drawn something, like a rawness that is easier to read.
