I remember rushing home from school to watch this. It was instantly my favourite. There was something mysterious about it. Not quite as innocent as some of the other BBC programs were we used to watch like Bill and Ben or the Woodentops, it was more in the line of Bagpuss, as I remember. The characters seemed to have a little more depth and the whole thing had atmosphere and a sort of poetry. Perhaps it was ahead of its time. It's a long time ago now and my recollection is vague, but the name is still resonant.
It wasn't on long. I always thought about it for many years afterwards and wished they'd show it again. The dark wood captured my imagination when I was very young. When I was young, I believed in Pogle. Now decades later, I like to walk in woods.
