Oliver Postgate (1925-2008)

December 9, 2008

Yesterday saw the passing of a legend in children’s tv – Oliver Postgate.

He was the creator of some of the most iconic and classic programs made: Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine, Noggin the Nog to name but a few.

His programs were made for children but were not patronising or baby-ish. They could be (and still are) enjoyed by all ages.

I still have the complete Ivor and Bagpuss, and some Clangers on VHS. Oh to have them on DVD.
