SO FAREWELL THEN…..NOGGIN THE NOG

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.

    His uncle was GDH Cole apparently, quite the family.

    I used to like Pogle’s Wood, but whenever I mentioned it in one of those conversations we all have about favourite children’s tv no-one ever remembered it. Now I can hold up the obituary and say ‘There!’ Magical memories of all Postgate/Firmin stuff.
