This doesn't often happen. I saw something on television that made me feel happier. BBC4 had devoted a swathe of programming to children's TV of the 1960s, concentrating - as is only right - on the genius that is Oliver Postgate, who, with Peter Firmin, has probably done more for the happiness and imginative wellbeing of the nation than any man alive. It's tempting to say that we shan't see the like of this duo again - but wait, we have Nick Park, exactly the same kind of inspired shedman, with a similarly uncorrupted, wholly English imagination. There is still hope for us. Cracking.
