RIP Oliver Postgate

Just breaking on the BBC; Oliver Postgate died yesterday.

Everyone will have own their favourite Postgate output. For me it was The Clangers. His voice was particularly suited to the narration and he's a part of my very young childhood that I still remember with pleasure. No doubt the same will be true for fans of Noggin the Nog, Bagpuss and other Smallfilms productions.
