A tribute to Oliver Postgate

Woke up this morning to the sad news that Oliver Postgate had died, aged 83.

The name might not mean much, but for many UK readers of this site, Postgate provided the pre-school entertainment - the man (and voice) behind Bagpuss, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine and Noggin the Nog to name four. And all are still popular today - doing brisk business both on DVD and in merchandising sales.

He might be gone, but I suspect his work will continue for many years to come. Here's some Bagpuss as a tribute - check out YouTube for much more of this and all his other shows.
