GUEST,Nicholas Waller Obit: Oliver Postgate (UK, 8 Dec 2008) (34) RE: Obit: Oliver Postgate 09 Dec 08


Emily speaks to the BBC here. She's still only 43. Actually, I never really knew Bagpuss, or indeed the Clangers, Ivor and Pogle's Wood, but I was a big fan of Noggin the Nog and its austere but magical northern saga feel.

@Gervase a charm and innocence that you just can't imagine being tolerated at the BBC these days.

I don't know, Wallace and Gromit and the like at least seem to be in the same line of work. Nick Park presented Postgate and Firmin with an award for their lasting contribution to Children's Entertainment made by the charity Action for Children's Arts only last year (well, Postgate was too ill to attend).

In an interview Oliver Postgate talks of visiting Aardman when there was talk of them doing a plasticine version of Noggin the Nog and says "Nick Park said that Ivor the Engine was the thing that set him off into animation, that I was his inspiration, which was very kind of him to say that."
