  • Pogles Wood was my favourite program as a 4 year old.
  • RIP
  • Loved Noggin the Nog, RIP
  • Peter Firmin leaves us a splendid body of work (as did his collaborator Oliver Postgate before him).
    There is much to admire in what he achieved.
    Thank you, Mr Firmin.
  • A true all-time great. Of course, being a Charlton fan, Ivor The Engine was my favourite.
    RIP
    Such a shame that he was just six months short of making @Riviera's thread. Can he get honorary membership?
  • A childhood hero, along with Mr Postgate of course. Thanks for the wonderful memories Mr F. RIP

    I'd 'spotted' him as a potential addition to @Riviera 's thread later in the year just a week or two ago.

    Sadly not to be.

    RIP Peter Firmin
  • Sad to hear this. Bagpuss, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine were all a big part of my childhood (which appears to be still ongoing as I watch the new Clangers too!)

    Children's TV needs more people like Firmin and Postgate.

  • A veritable genius and thoroughly decent human being, with a legacy rivalled by very few.
    Credit must be given to the BBC commissioning bods at the time who allowed Postgate & Firmin so much freedom and trusted them to come up with work of such quality; without which little if any Smallfilms material may have seen the light of day.
