Oliver Postgate brought whimsical pleasure to millions, generation after generation. I loved Noggin the Nog best, as a child, and I loved Bagpuss when I watched it again with my own children.
What always surprises me is how few episodes there were of these treasures. Compared with, say, The Simpsons, which runs into hundreds of episodes, there are only a dozen or so of these beautiful stories.
What I never knew till today, is that Postgate also had his own website, in which he shared some of his thoughts about the real world, the one we live in today.
Bless him for a creative, innocent and good man.
