In 1940 the pioneering animators John Halas and Joy Batchelor founded the largest and most influ- ential animation studio in Western Europe. Widely regarded as Britain's first feature length animated film, Animal Farm captures the essence of George Orwell's famous political fable. It follows the uprising of a group of farm animals who discover that ‘all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others’. Featuring the voice of actor Maurice Denham, the film was described by The New York Times as ‘.... mordant, tender and quixotic, shot with ironic humour’.
