Not Just Emily

Another sad one. Yesterday we thought about John Lennon in 1980. Today, we learn that the creator of such classic children's TV as Ivor The Engine, The Clangers, Noggin The Nog and Bagpuss, Oliver Postgate, has died aged 83.

I mentioned Bagpuss less than two months ago in a post here.

The Guardian has some more links to Youtube videos of Postgate's legacy here.

It is easy to get sentimental in such circumstances but a simple goodbye and thank you seems the very least we can say to a man who defined a huge portion of childhood for many of us.
