Postgate and Firmin characters

Here's a program (in six parts, just follow them through on You Tube) produced by the BBC a few years ago telling the story of "Small Films" it's a lovely look at the characters Peter Firmin created and the animation techniques used throughout the duo's career.

Oliver Postgate died December 2008. Here's Charlie Brooker being uncharacteristically gushing about his films.

If you're interested in animation also check out the BBC's Animation Nation here.
