I never realised until today just how many classic tv shows that guy created - loved Ivor the Engine.
It's an overused term, but he and Peter Firmin (whith whom he created Smallfilms) were geniuses (genii?), and they treated kids as if they were intelligent, rather just 'viewers'.
Good obit on him on Newsnight last night....with an insight into just how seditious some of the clangers and Bagpuss voices were!
