Oliver Postgate, the creator of Bagpuss, The Clangers and a series of other classic children's television programmes, has died at the age of 83.

His other creations, including Noggin the Nog, Ivor the Engine and Pingwings, were screened on the BBC and ITV from the 1950s.

Postgate's creations were made by Smallfilms, the company he set up with the artist and puppeteer Peter Firmin, and he also narrated all its productions.

Although only 13 episodes of Bagpuss were made from 1974, the pink "saggy, old, cloth cat" remains fondly remembered and earlier this was voted Britain's best-loved children's television character.

Postgate's partner, Naomi Linnell, confirmed he died at a nursing home near his home in Broadstairs, Kent, on Monday.

Born in Hendon, Middlesex, Postgate set up Smallfilms in a disused cowshed near Canterbury after spending his early years in a number of different jobs.

In October this year, the rights to many of his creations, including Bagpuss, The Clangers and Ivor the Engine, were acquired by media company Coolabi in a £400,000 deal.

In an interview with the BBC in 2005, Postgate explained the process of how Bagpuss and some of his other characters came into being.

He said: "We would go to the BBC once a year, show them the films we'd made, and they would say 'Yes, lovely, now what are you going to do next?'

"We would tell them and they would say 'That sounds fine, we'll mark it in for 18 months from now', and we would be given praise and encouragement and some money in advance. And we'd just go away and do it. They hadn't any ideas in their heads, and they were happy enough to leave that to us."

Thanks for the link to Amazon, anyway, Leanne! I went to 'My Recommendations' and it reminded me of several books I'd got on my mental wish-list. John usually gives me money for Xmas, so I think I'll have a splurge! :D
