A dark winter evening, Mum cooking the dinner and me curled up on the couch watching 'Ivor the Engine'. I am writing this and actually have a lump in my throat because childhood then was so sweet and uncomplicated.
Oliver Postgate's programmes are like a background to my childhood and there will never be anything in the future to compare with them.

I don't imagine that in 20 years there will be a resurgence in popularity for 'Pokemon'!!
