Basil Brush Back on BBC

UK-based Entertainment Rights’ Basil Brush will be back on live BBC television from Jan. 5 until March 22, with “Basil Brush’s Swap Shop.” The series is made by The Foundation, which is part of the Rdf Media Group.

The agreement between the BBC and The Foundation follows the sixth series of “The Basil Brush Show,” which aired on CBBC and BBC1 in autumn 2007.

The new studio-based live entertainment show is a revival of the classic Noel Edmunds 1970’s “Multi-Coloured Swap Shop,” this time hosted by Basil Brush himself. Presenting alongside Basil Brush will be BAFTA award winning Barney Harwood.
