A real 70s Kids TV Exclusive as we meet the voice behind The Flumps
Show Notes Chapter Markers

She was the voice behind one of the most well loved kids series of the 70s.

Gay Soper was the person who brought to life the world of The Flumps. Pootle, Perkin, Posie, Ma and Pa Flump and Grandpa Flump all became real characters thanks to her tremendously talented acting.

But though kids of the 70s remember the Flumps fondly, there was actually only 13 episodes in total.

Here Gay tells Ashley where The Flumps came from and how she came up with their voices, developed their characters and navigated a tremendously created script written by Julie Holder.

Presented and produced by Ashley Byrne. Research by Andrew Edwards
Continuity: Andy Hoyle and Jonathan Kydd.

A Made in Manchester Production.
