Thanks for posting this, Richard! I watched Bagpuss on the CBC way back when, and recently revisited the show on DVD and was taken with how charming, and yet creepy, the program was. I think I had nightmares involving that bird with the scissor head.

We certainly don't see much vision like Postgate's in today's children's television environment.
