Trumpton Creator’s Family Says Radiohead’s “Burn The Witch” Video Violates Copyright


Stereogum, had recently published an interesting article. The author, Peter Helman mentions, an English rock band; Radiohead’s music video; Burn The Witch “looks a whole lot like the art style used in the 1960s British children’s show Trumpton.” Peter also found an interview of William Mollett from the website named DailyMail. William is the creator of Trumpton; Gordon Murray’s son-in-law. In the article, William said, “Radiohead should have sought our consent as we consider this a tarnishing of the brand…It is not something we would have authorized. We consider that there is a breach of copyright and we are deciding what to do next.” Please check both stop-motion videos of Trumpton and Radiohead’s Burn The Witch from below links.
