An item from the early stages of the Babel Fish sequence, the first half of which constituted the initial pilot test piece for the BBC.

This item is an early "key" pencil drawing on 305x252 mm animation paper made by Rod Lord in the early stages of planning and layout for the part of the sequence where the Babel Fish turns head on in the centre of screen while a human head appears on the left and an Alien head on the right.

This will come with an accompanying authenticating letter embossed with the Pearce Studios Ltd seal along with a full description of the way it fitted into the production process.

I will sign the item - and the letter of course !

In case anyone feels the value of original items might be diminished I give notice that I reserve the right at some future date to offer digital prints of any original items auctioned. This is on the principle that digital prints of the Mona Lisa do not diminish the value of the original painting. Not of course that I am comparing any of this stuff to the genius of Leonardo ! - just an example.

A3 and 7" x 5" digital prints from artwork can be obtained from
