Ivor the Engine: The Complete Collection (Restored) (Fabulous Films, PG) You wait ages for a Welsh Locomotive TV series and then three come along at once. The end of the 1950s found Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin feeling their way into a new and challenging world of stop-frame animation. Their first collaboration as Smallfilms brought us the utterly charming six-part story of how Ivor the Engine got the chance to fulfil his dream of singing in the choir of the the Grumbly and District Choral Society. The 1960s saw 26 new adventures about the Merioneth and Llantisilly Rail Traction Company Limited and all the gently eccentric inhabitants of the towns and villages to whom the trainline served, as well as dragons, elephants and a donkey named Bluebell. This series hasn't been seen since 1969.
The 1970s saw Ivor and his friends brought back to our screens with forty episodes in full colour.
Now, for the first time, all the series have been lovingly remastered and brought together in one definitive collection. Voiced, along with Postgate, by David Edwards, Olwen Griffiths, Anthony Jackson and accompanied by the beautifully evocative bassoon music of Vernon Elliott, we bring you Ivor the Engine. Peep-peep!"

Ivor The Engine: The Colour Series (Fabulous Films, U) "In 1975 Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin decided to revisit the top left-hand corner of Wales. This time Ivor’s many adventures, some from the 60’s series and some brand new, were in full colour! The forty 5-minute stories hit our screens in January 1976 and ran until December 1977, after which they were regularly shown on the BBC until the 1980s. Olwen Griffiths reprised her role as Mrs Porty and Anthony Jackson came onboard for the voices of Dai Station, Evans the Song and Mr Dinwiddy. And of course the series was cushioned on the beautifully haunting bassoon music of Vernon Elliott."


Overlord IV: Season 4 (Crunchyroll LLC, 15) "Newly crowned Ains plans his utopia, but before he can reform the rival kingdoms, he’ll have to rule them.
