That's what made Aardman's films so unique because they didn't really come out of that children's television block
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.

My mistake, I had completely forgotten about Morph!

The 1968 CFF film The Ghost of a Chance is the supporting feature on the BFI Blu-ray of The Battle of the Sexes.
