Henson was of course much more than a puppeteer – he was a complete entertainer.
Cutting his teeth early with live performances for children in all manner of settings he learned quickly how important it was to keep rolling, keep popping and keep sparking.
This compilation program looks at the development of some of his most famous creations such as Kermit, Rowlf the Dog, Ernie and the Swedish Chef from not just the earliest years of the characters but the earliest years of television.
