town of Trumpton. It would begin with a box, and you would hear
the narration: "Here is a box, a musical box, wound up and
ready to play. But this box can hide a secret inside. Can you guess
what is in it today?" and then the main character of that programme
would rise out of the box!

If you're familiar with the comedy television
show 'Whose Line is it Anyway' then you might remember the "voice-overs"
game, which involved a number of comedians providing a completely
improvised voice-over to a random television clip.
And... there was a Camberwick Green clip used!!
