Seeing Things Summary

Seeing Things by Oliver Postgate

This is the autobiography of Oliver Postgate, the man who wrote, narrated and filmed "Bagpuss", "The Clangers", "Ivor the Engine", "Noggin the Nog" and "Pogle's Wood". The book begins with Postgate's childhood, then goes on to cover his years as a conscientious objector, farmer, inventor, actor and stage manager before looking at the period, beginning in the late 1950s, when he created children's films. In more recent years he has become an advocate of solar power and an opponent of nuclear weapons. This is a humourous account of a colourful life.
