Whatever Happened to the Teapots?

On BBC Radio 4FM is a series of programmes by Roger Law of Spitting Image fame under the above title.  in the 1980′s he went to Stoke to get some Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan satirical Teapots made. He is returning to see what has become of the craftsmen who made them.

Well worth listening to – I am indebted to John Pollex for pointing out this series to me.  See more on  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8350518.stm
