Here comes the caravan
Going to the fair
Hip-hip-hooray
We'll all be there,
Roundabouts, dodgem cars
Swings go up and down
Merry lights and music
They're coming through the town!

The Gnomes of 25 Telegraph Road have a dilemma. Small's conscience is troubled - he feels 'different' when he is holding one of the girl gnomes from next door in his arms. There is only one answer - 'We must consult a higher authority' says Big. 'We must consult the Tope Gnome.'

A series which explores living memory

Conscription was introduced in Britain in 1916. For political or religious reasons thousands of men refused to fight...
The popular image of conscientious objectors at the time was of men lacking courage and with no sense of patriotism. Actually they suffered humiliation and even torture for their beliefs, regularly impressing policemen, soldiers, and prison warders with their humour and integrity.
"I felt very strongly that I would much rather be shot than shoot anyone else."

Taking part: Harold Bing, Lord Brockway, Charles Coles, Alfred Corum, Alfred Evans, Jack Foister, Mark Hayler, Mrs. Rosa Hobhouse, Miles Malleson, Howard Marten, Frank Merrick, F.J. Murfin, Harry Stanton
