Coming up: “Smallfilms … a reflection” online talk by Simon Postgate

Simon Postgate will be giving an online talk on his father Oliver Postgate’s film company Smallfilms on Wednesday (11th August) – the producer of television shows such as Bagpuss, The Clangers and Noggin the Nog.

Smallfilms was the company that produced children’s television programmes such as Bagpuss, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine, Noggin the Nog, Pogles Wood and The Pingwings.

Set under construction for the new version of The Clangers

Simon grew up around the making of these children’s film classics and even appeared in some of them. This talk is a personal account and reflection of those times taking the viewer up to the present and the making of the new version of The Clangers.

This is a latest in a series of chats from Simon about Smallfilms, which has also included talks on The Clangers and Noggin the Nog.
