Camberwick Green was the setting for a children's puppet show of the same name, which debuted on 3rd March 1966 on BBC 1. Despite only lasting one series of thirteen episodes, it spawned two follow-on shows, Trumpton and Chigley (the latter a village near Camberwick Green). Though together all three shows only accrued three years and 39 episodes, it was frequently repeated into the 1970s, and ten Camberwick Green Annuals were published between 1967 and 1976. Chigley had two annuals (1970 and 1971), while Trumpton had eight (1967 to 1974). All three series also had strips in Polystyle's Pippin in Playland. It remains such a British icon of the era that the TV show Life on Mars, where an modern day police officer apparently finds himself thrown back into the early 1970s, pastiched the opening sequence in one episode.
