BBC Kicks Off Paddington's 50th Birthday

Copyrights’ Paddington Bear has started his 50th birthday celebration with the BBC.

Last week, Radio 4 placed 50 Paddington bears in prominent places in train stations around the UK wearing the label ‘Please Look After this Bear.’ In exchange for taking the Paddington bears home, the finders will be asked to call BBC Radio 4 and leave a birthday message about the famous bear.

On Saturday, March 1, children’s author Michael Morpurgo will talk to the finders, hearing how and where they found the bears, their favorite Paddington memories and what Paddington means to them. Paddington’s creator Michael Bond will take part in the program.
