I was really saddened just now to see on BBC News that Brian Cant has passed away.
Brian was one of the main presenters of Play School and Play Away on UK TV. He was also the golden voice behind the famous Trumpton roll-call.
I loved Brian when I was a kid, I thought he was hilarious and could have listened to his zany tales and mad antics all day long. But we all knew he was a gentle soul and doing his best to impart important things whilst having fun, the best way to learn by far.
Presenter, singer, comic, teacher, jester and icon to millions of kids born in the Sixties, Brian Cant was them all, for which we will all be eternally grateful.
So looking through that big round window one last time we bid you a fond farewell Brian.
Keep playing and rest in peace.
