The article in The Guardian (12/12/21) tells of the 70s TV series Clangers, the brainchild of Oliver Postgate, the grandson of George Lansbury.
The article features Postgate's son, Daniel and he tells us “Dad came from a strong socialist heritage, his grandfather was the Labour MP George Lansbury. Lansbury’s philosophy had a lasting influence and I think it’s apparent in his stories.”
Oliver Postgate was the son of Daisy Lansbury who was one of George and Elizabeth Lansbury's 12 children.
