5.0 out of 5 stars A classic from the past
I bought this because of the fond memories I had of this in the past, it used to occupy that slot at the end of children's TV and the news and my childhood memories didn't let me down.

Ivor the engine reflects another age, a golden age, when choirs sang, visited the seaside for a day out and ate fish and chips. In some ways it is timeless, my three year old...

1.0 out of 5 stars An apparent waste of money.
A very nice package but the DVD will NOT run in our 2 DVD players. It will just about run in a 7 year laptop but that gives no enjoyment. The other PCs -No!
So I have a DVD that doesn't satisfy and certainly can't be shown to grandchildren. Reminds me of the time when Gt Britain had its own variation on the pan European TV system

5.0 out of 5 stars Ivor The Engine - A Marxist Interpretation, 12 Aug 2009

This review is from: Ivor The Engine: All The Colour Episodes Ever Made [DVD] (DVD)
Ivor the Engine is perhaps Mr Postgate's simplest trope to express the feared consequences of the forward march of industrial society. Rendered mute by the horror of his status as a anthro-mechanoid but for his mournful "psshh-t-cphh" sigh, Ivor is caught up in the machine (c.f. Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times) to a more fearful extent than anyone else had previously dreamt. This nightmare of deathless forever-toil is cut through by a cheerful indifference on the part of Jones The Steam, his callous snout-in-the-trough master who takes him on banal 'adventures' which must necessarily be defined by Ivor's obvious narrow gauge limits. Ivor the Engine is a fine piece of work and gave a generation of children a useful message: kill those who design to be your masters, for this is what they would have you become.
