Stuart Freeborn: Be My Grandad Please

Even if you don't recognise the name Stuart Freeborn, you'll doubtless know some of the characters he's created because two of them were Chewbacca and Yoda which gives his a world class CV wth just this sentence.

This man is truly the master of make-up in science fiction cinema having worked on (amongst others), all the original Star Wars films, the original Superman films and 2001 a Space Oddysey. I found a couple of old BBC films where he's sharing a few anecdotes about his career and I thought they were so charming I had to post them. Caution: You will want him to be your Grandad.
