(56/58)

The popular fireman and his friends conclude their adventures on Five. Set in the Welsh village of Pontypandy, Fireman Sam charts the adventures of the brave and resourceful fireman and his crew, which includes Penny Morris, Elvis Cridlington and Station Officer Steele.

Heroic and calm in any crisis, Fireman Sam is a pillar of the community. He and his colleagues are always on hand to respond to any call for help, whether it be putting out fires, rescuing children from quarries or helping cats out of trees. In his spare time, Fireman Sam is a bit of an inventor and likes nothing better than tinkering in his inventing shed.

Based on an original idea by two former firemen from Kent, this lively series is brought to life through colourful stop-frame animation. Fireman Sam also has an important safety message to impart, and the series has recently partnered with the charity CAPT (Children’s Accident Prevention Trust) to raise awareness of fire prevention.

In the first episode of the week on Monday, someone has been stealing liquorice from Dilys’s shop. But who?

In Tuesday’s show, ‘Fields of Fire’, Norman and Mandy discover that smoke can be most annoying when Dusty disturbs a campfire.

The last episode of the series on Wednesday is ‘Norman Price – Fireman of Tomorrow’. Norman wants to be a fireman when he grows up – but can he wait that long?

From Thursday there is a chance to see the series from the beginning.
