William Heath Robinson was born in 1872 into a family of artists in Stroud Green, north London. His father Thomas Robinson (1838-1902) and brothers Thomas Heath Robinson (1869-1954) and Charles Robinson (1870-1937) all worked as illustrators. He is best known for his cartoons of improbable rickety machines, often with complex pulley arrangements which became so popular in Britain that 'Heath Robinson' became the term used to describe similar complicated machines used to perform the simplest of tasks. As well as these cartoons, Heath Robinson also illustrated a number of children's books, which are the main focus of this DVD.
