The first episode of Captain Pugwash aired on 22 October 1957. The children's animation was written, illustrated and produced by John Ryan. The bumbling Captain was brought to life by Peter Hawkins, who provided all the voices. The simple but beautifully crafted cartoon, with cut-out figures moved by cardboard levers, contributed to the overall charm of the programme, which is still fondly remembered years after it was last shown.
Sustainability,Catalytic Clothing. Helen Storey & Tony Ryan have created a dress that purifies the air in effect to reduce air pollution. Catalytic clothing gains the energy it needs to work through light. It is also designed to breakdown pollutants straight away. To see a noticeable change in the reduction of pollution, a mass amount of people would have to wear the garments because it only removes a small part of the air borne pollutants.
