Children’s TV series Fireman Sam was inspired by two former firefighters from London who enlisted the support of artist and writer Rob Lee to develop their concept.The character first appeared on television in 1987 and the initial series was formed of 32 episodes of ten minutes and a Christmas special which ran to 20 minutes. John Alderton was the narrator and voiced all the characters.Fireman Sam and his firefighting colleagues have had a makeover over the subsequent 34 years. In the original series, they wore yellow and black uniforms but the black has since been replaced by blue.The fictional location of Pontypandy is an amalgamation of two real towns, Pontypridd and Tonypandy. Despite being a small town, Pontypandy seems to be a hotbed for fires and emergencies...and Fireman Sam is always the hero of the hour.From single-handedly saving his brother from disaster at Pontypridd lighthouse to helping his colleagues tackle blazes, Fireman Sam’s life is one big adventure.
