Oliver Postgate DVDs are Available!

 Ivor the Engine

Following on from Ivor the Engine's 55th Anniversary, the Library now has the complete Ivor the Engine (in colour!), as well as the complete Clangers and Bagpuss. The Clangers, if you don't know, are a family of whistling mouse-like creatures that live on a small, mysterious moon in the far reaches of outer-space. Their days are filled with activities like planting music trees, building helicopters, and fishing for junk.


Bagpuss, on the other hand, is a raggedy, baggy old cloth cat that mostly sleeps in a shop window belonging to a little girl called Emily. Emily is obsessed with the detritus of capitalism (!) - she likes to find lost objects in the street so Bagpuss and his friends can figure out what they used to be - usually by telling wondrous stories and singing pretty songs.


All DVDs are now available to take out from the top floor of the Library, in the DVD section.
