Bod - Words and Music [CD]
- The series was based on the original children's books by Joanna and Michael Cole - 'Bodís Apple', 'Bodís Present', 'Bodís Dream' and 'Bod and the Cherry Tree'.
- Each character has their own theme music which is heard when they appear.
- Each episode consisted of a short Bod story, an extract from a famous piece of classical music played by 'Alberto Frog and his Amazing Animal Band', and a game of 'Bod Snap'!
- The creators of Bod have confirmed that he is definitely a boy!
- The 'Alberto Frog' segments were produced separately by the BBC, but only five out of thirteen of these segments survive in the BBC Archives.
