Nikky Smedley

Over the Hills and Far Away

My Life as a Teletubby

Say “Eh-Oh” to the performer behind the beloved Teletubby Laa-Laa in this candid and entertaining book.

Lifting the curtain on what it was like to be Laa-Laa and experience the astonishing success of the Teletubbies phenomenon, Nikky Smedley’s enchanting story is warm, affectionate and as lively and funny as the programmes themselves.

Unique in its use of educational theory, child psychology and revolutionary linguistics, Teletubbies achieved global viewing figures of three billion a year. Airing in 120 countries in 45 languages, it was one of the most internationally successful television programmes ever.

Join Nikky Smedley in conversation with Duncan Barrett on Thursday 28 Sept at 7.30 pm at The Wanstead Tap
