A little piece of my childhood has disappeared


I was really saddened this morning to hear of the death of Oliver Postgate. He was a writer, puppeteer and animator who produced some of the greatest British children's television programmes. The likes of Noggin the Nog, Ivor the Engine, Bagpuss and The Clangers have such a warm place in my heart. They had a significant impact on my childhood and I could still watch them with glee even as an adult. Oh, for someone else with that kind of imagination.

Here is the BBC's obituary with some media clips and other great stuff.
