Adam West, the actor who played Batman in the 1960s TV series, died last week aged 88. People lit up the Bat-Signal at the Los Angeles City Hall in his honour.

Burt Ward, who played Robin in the show, was at the event to pay tribute to his friend, saying that he spent his entire life as a performer making people happy, making them laugh, and trying to make the world a better place.

Difficult words: Bat-Signal (the signal that people would to use to call for Batman; the signal looks like a giant black bat).
