I used to love NOGGIN THE NOG and my kids were into IVOR THE ENGINE, BAGPUSS,THE CLANGERS. Their creator – and the man with the wonderful story teller voice – OLIVER POSTGATE hs died. It was not generally known that Postgate was the grandson of GEORGE LANSBURY -Labour leader of the Poplar revolt and rent strike in the 1920s. Postgte was an affable leftie himself playing an active role in CND in the 60s. ‘Listen, and I will tell you more..’ Cheers for a lot of fun Oliver.
