Oliver Postgate

Oliver Postgate, the man who gave us The Clangers, Bagpuss, Noggin the Nog and Ivor The Engine has died at the age of 83.

If you're British Generation X then you know what a giant this man was. Few things remind me of my childhood as much as this title sequence...



Another powercut? Three day week. John Craven. The Bay City Rollers. "Mum, can I stay up for It's a Knockout?"

I can almost taste the Cremola foam and Spangles. 

Ah, the '70s isn't it?

RIP

Really sad news. His voice along with brian cant and derek griffiths were the soundtrack to my early years. His work was gentle and brilliant and that's not just 70's nostalgia talking.

yeah you're right. Have you read his autobiography "Seeing Things"? Great book that comes with a DVD.

cheers
