Oliver Postgate: A Life in Small Films

Now seemingly accessible to those outside the UK… an hour-long documentary on one of the great British animators of the 20th century: Oliver Postgate: A Life in Small Films. Postgate worked, often quite literally, “on a shoestring” — but managed to produce some of animation’s most alluring worlds and charming characters (Noggin the Nog, Ivor the Engine, The Clangers, etc).

If you’re in the USA and can’t access because of the BBC iPlayer’s stupid UK-only restrictions, it’s also widely available elsewhere.
