Clangers: The Teapot
Although not quite as popular as Bagpuss (which in 1999 was voted, in a British television poll, the best children’s television programme ever made), Clangers was watched and loved by millions of British pre-teen children in the early days of colour television, and is remembered with affection by many who are now in their late forties or early fifties. Since the death of Oliver Postgate in December 2008, interest has been revived in his work, which is considered to have had a notable influence on British culture throughout the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties.
