The Most Magical

Prick Your Finger tells me Oliver Postgate, father of classic children's programmes as well as political activist and pacifist, died last week. he was the creator of both kinds of my favourite mice in the entire world and what is perhaps the king of cats. he made worlds and characters out of things you could find in the garden shed and the sewing box, worlds of happiness and adventure and mystery and music.
i hope he rests in peace.
here are Bagpuss and The Clangers - they are the best things to watch when you're home ill, no matter what your age, as many years of experience have taught me. enjoy.
