Oliver Postgate who entertained me as a school then college student and a young teacher, has died. I am sure nobody in the UK has missed this news. Strangley - well perhaps not after my initial "oh, thats sad" - I immediately smiled as I remembered my favourites "The Clangers".
Their little knitted bodies and their perfectly understandable "whistles" with expressions - ears and noses can say the most wonderful things!I thoroughly enjoyed them.
Then I remembered Noggin the Nog - that was at Secondary school. So very clever!
Now I saw very little TV at college itself - little time but The Clangers!
a lovely obituary here
A UTUBE tribute here
That was the very first then came
I'd forgotten Pingwings!
Bagpuss came much later to my notice than the TV series.There is a small Bagpuss sitting in my car keeping an eye on me when I drive!
They all make me smile! with a little tear in the corner of my eye!
Thank you Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin
I will edit this later so the links click through but I have to go now!
