Television TV


This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

This was one of those five minute shows at the end of children's TV every day (for a while) in about 1979 I think. Ludwig was shaped like a large cut diamond with arms and legs and it had a lot of contraptions and talked to the birds - very surreal!

Do You Remember Ludwig?

Do You Remember Ludwig?

    He was shaped like an egg, and could sprout any number of contraptions from inside his eggy body- mechanical arms & legs, wheels, helicopter rotors, and goodness knows what else. He was always helping his wildlife friends out of trouble of some kind or another. He was observed by a bird-watcher in a deerstalker hat, who hid behind a bush and watched him through a apir of binoculars.

    It was totally bonkers, but I think Ludwig was supposed to be a robot from outer space who happened to like Beethoven's music. The fact that it was set in a forest amongst woodland creatures probably suggested some socialistic constructionistic twaddle!
