Out today in the US is Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention, a six-part series that aired on the BBC at the end of 2010.
In this show from Aardman Animations, Wallace and Gromit act as hosts, introducing real-world inventions to viewers. Here’s the official description:
Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention sees world-renowned inventor Wallace and his faithful sidekick (turned camera dog) Gromit turn their hand to presenting for the very first time, hosting a six-part series from the basement of 62 West Wallaby Street. They take an enthusiastic look at some real life cracking contraptions, from gadgets that help around the home to the mind-boggling world of space travel and much more in between.
Through the end of this week (contest closes March 16), you can enter to win a DVD copy at the official website. (From what I can tell, the Blu-ray and the DVD have the same content.)
