Noggin the Nog
"In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale..."
Thus began the saga of Noggin and his folk. A charming and wonderful set of stories about Norse types.

I attended a lecture by Oliver Postgate, co-creator of Noggin, (and the Clangers, Bagpuss, Captain Pugwash, etc etc.), shortly before he died.
About one hundred grown ups squeezed into the small room, and sat, in hushed silence, at the feet of this true-life Dumbledor, this weaver of dreams, his hypnotic voice transporting us all once more to childhood.
