Peter Firmin RIP

Sad to report that the great animator Peter Firmin has sadly passed away. Peter who ? I am sure some members will say but if I said he is responsible for producing some of the best children's shows ever The Clangers, Bagpuss, Ivor of the Engine,Pogles Wood ,I would dearly hope it jogged the Member's childhood memories enough to remember not only happy times but also this great innovator who, along with Oliver Postage, brought children and I dare say adults such joy. A sad loss.

A bit late adding my thoughts but agree a sad loss. I seem to recall that Ivor the engine predated Tank engine Thomas on TV and also such a wide range of decent stuff ...
