    RIP mate, a great presenter and narrator. Used to watch all those with my kids. Trumpton a special favourite, they never attended a fire all their incidents were known in that era as "special service calls".

    Took me a bit of time to realise who he was, I was never a Play School, Play Away, Bric-a-Brac kid but I (know having seen his face as the younger him), realise who he was from flicking throuch the 3 channels we had back then.

    It's like I said one another thread, "You think they will live forever".

    There is also the fact it brings home the fact we are getting older and there are less days infront of us, than behind.

    Thiughts go out to his family/friends, Parkinson's, like some many others non-discriminatory and terribe for the Family to go through.
