The best childrens TV programme ever...

...was not Bagpuss, though it did come from the same stable.

It was the wonderful Ivor The Engine.

"...Not very long ago, in the top left-hand corner of Wales, there was a railway. It wasn't a very long railway or a very important railway, but it was called The Merioneth and Llantisilly Rail Traction Company Limited, and it was all there was. And in a shed, in a siding at the end of the railway, lives the Locomotive of the Merioneth and Llantisilly Rail Traction Company Limited, which was a long name for a little engine so his friends just called him Ivor..."

What more could you want? Ivor had everything: North Wales, choirs, coal mines, narrow gauge steam railways, elephants, and (of course) dragons!

And now, if you have a colour printer (and a toilet roll), you can make your very own Ivor!
