For those who mourn the passing of Oliver Postgate, and for those who wonder who he was and why we should care, here is the first episode of Ivor the Engine.

Listen to Oliver's voice.  He's a born storyteller.  You could remove the animation and still have a perfect story (indeed, my sons listened to this as an audio tape for many years at bedtime).  I love Ivor.  I love the little Welsh touches, the names and the way Oliver lets them roll off his tongue.  And I love the bit at the end, because I love Welsh choirs.
