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).
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

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.
