"The Flower Pot Men" is a British children's programme, produced by BBC television, first transmitted in 1952, and repeated regularly for more than twenty years.
Originally, the programme was part of a BBC children's television series titled Watch with Mother, with a different programme each weekday, most of them involving string puppets. The Flower Pot Men was the story of Bill and Ben, two little men made of flower pots who lived at the bottom of an English suburban garden. The characters were devised by Freda Lingstrom and Maria Bird. Three later stories were written by Hilda Brabban. The puppeteers were Audrey Atterbury and Molly Gibson. The voices and other noises were produced byPeter Hawkins, Gladys Whitred and Julia Williams. The narration for all episodes was done by Maria Bird.
