I'm not sure if "really" is shorthand for "actually, they did", but actually, they did - Aardman's initial commissions were all in connection with "that children's television block", specifically the BBC's Vision On and its spin-off Take Hart. And it was the reputation that they built on the back of Morph, their immortal Take Hart character, that enabled them to move in different directions in the 1980s when more commissioning opportunities opened up thanks to the advent of Channel Four.
Discuss DVDs and Blu-rays released by the BFI and the films on them.

Serendipitously, the BBC has apparently just produced a new series based on Malory Towers. Its not Famous Five (or Secret Seven) but is Enid Blyton! Here's the trailer.
