Tea-drinker par excellence

Sheer Genius

Why haven't Clangers got pants asks Carol. Because they are Clangers says Dave. If you were a child in the early 70s the Clangers are part of who you are.

Enjoy the genius of Oliver Postgate who passed away yesterday. With Peter Firmin he founded Small Films that made many children's programmes.

We saw him once at the South Bank, giving a talk about Noggin the Nog, Pogles Wood, Ivor the Engine, Bagpuss and the Clangers. He was every bit as wonderful as his creations.
