"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 North Lands sit by their great log fires, and they tell a tale..."

So begins the many adventures of Noggin the Nog, the kindly ruler of a great land threatened by his wicked uncle, Nogbad the Bad, the Viking equivalent of Dick Dastardly.

This was a series I grew up with, but I was never able to see the whole series. We had the colour remake of "The Ice Dragon" and the two-part "Noggin and the Pie" recorded on an old VHS tape, but that was all. I had wanted to see just how Noggin first came to be king, and how he met the fair Nooka, Princess of the Nooks. Now, thanks to this DVD, that wish has been granted!

In addition to the entire series - including the original black-and-white "Ice Dragon" dropped from the VHS releases in favour of the colour remakes - the DVD also gives us the Noggin the Nog storybooks - narrated to us whilst we are shown the illustrations. What more could any Noggin fan ask for!

So, if ever you should want to relive your childhood and return to the Northlands to fight the wicked Nogbad or watch the amusing squabbles between Graculus the Great Green Bird and Olaf the Lofty, then this DVD is for you!

If you have a soul and you really want to lose yourself in whimsical tales from the northlands and luxuriate in one of "those voices", indulge in myriad characters and listen again to those musical themes then treat yourself. If of course you have no soul and are blind to the positivity of fantasy then forget it.

BTW Oliver Postgate's autobiography (Seeing Things) is more than just a treat. It is full of tales from north London, the west country and more besides. The only grouse I have is that Noggin gets little more than a nod BUT there is so much more to Postgate than Noggin.

Engaging stories told with excellent use of language, no dumbing down, and with a slightly scary musical background. Kept the children fully engaged and wanting more.

Several years ago , Frank chose an episode from Noggin, on desert island discs.This sparked a wonderful memory and l explored the internet. At the time, l thought the collection was expensive. Since then, l have retired. I haven't bought the narrow boat, the camper van or the solar panels for the roof. I bought this collection, absolutely wonderful. Just hearing the music again, the narrators voice, brings me back to listening to the episodes on the BBC in the early 60s.

I loved these as a young child during the sixties and when I had my own children (now 14 and 12) they watched them on video and loved them too. They avidly watched the black and white stories as much as the colour ones and just as I had been scared by Nogbad the Bad so was my then 4 year old! Simple tales beautifully narrated, some things don't date.

Bought for my grand daughter who loves it. Even mum was happy to watch along side her when they both had flu.

What can you say about Oliver Postgate and his TV animations? By modern standards they are incredibly crude and simplistic, but you need to put them in their real context - the childrens' TV of almost a lifetime ago.
I doubt if a sophisticated modern child would enjoy them very much, but for the adults who grew up with them, this is a collection not to be missed.
