Oliver Postgate RIP

Sad news this morning. Oliver Postgate creator of Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine, The Clangers and Noggin The Nog, non e piu. He brought hours of innocent fun to children of my generation. May he rest in peace.

Thanks for this! (The Noggin clips that I found on youtube had some kind of sex tape among the "related videos" - now I can use the "clean" version that you found!)

He encouraged children to be children - not like today's trash.

If only children of this present generation could have enjoyed such innocent and simple entertainment. Instead, only three years ago, I had to attend the funeral of one of my eleven-year-old pupils. He committed suicide because his girlfriend told him he was no good in bed.

Child abuse = robbing children of their childhood.
