A sad day

Oliver Postgate has died. My personal connection with him, beyond loving Bagpuss when I was 4, was when he unexpectedly sent me "A plain persons guide to global warming" pamphlet, sponsored by The Clangers, when I had just started working at Defra.

I've got a lot of angry letters from members of the public, but never before or since did I get such a beautifully created article.

A great man.
