I always knew the Clangers were good socialists :)

I wish I'd seen this thread when it was bumped, rather than at 8:30.  Watching it now.  I do hope they repeat it (or put it on iPlayer?) so I can see the first half.

I liked the Clangers but didn't like Bagpuss.  You see, what with the b/w intro and the wobbly music, I thought it was filmed in Victorian times and they were all dead by now (which would have been about 1973).
Never tell me the odds.

I used to have a penpal from Horrabridge which is where they filmed the opening credits of Bagpuss.

Mrs MV met Bagpuss a couple of years ago; he was living near Chippenham with either Emily or a relative of whoever knitted him - I can't remember now.

What a nice bloke. The clangers and Ivor are very fond memories for me.
The choice of clips as a part of the commentary, all the way through, was inspired.

I finally got round to watching the BBC4 programme last night. Lovely nostalgia fest. Made me feel rather wistful.

My son was a bit puzzled when "Florence's dad" came on - ie Christopher Postgate, whose daughter was in his class at school last year.  ;D

"Oh sod it! The bloody thing's stuck again!"

So said a Clanger, and got Mr. Postgate into BBC hot water apparently.

Mr P had the last laugh thoughbut.

When all sorts of Clangers merchandise was licensed a while back the knitted soft toys were all made with a squeezable sound chip.

Guess what the sample was . . .  ;D   ;D   ;D   ;D

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.
