Tottie The Story of a Dolls House

by Rumer Godden
Told and Directed by Oliver Postgate

For thosewho remember Tottie when it was first shown, these films made quite animpression, not only because they have gone down in history as the firstchildrens' programme to include a murder, but for the enormous skill inanimation, voice, and editing which Oliver brought to Rumer Godden's hauntingstory. Although deceptively simple, Oliver conveyed subtleties ofexpression with the wooden and porcelein dolls,highlighting thereby the economy of movement needed to tell a good story well. And this is a goodstory. It does not shy away from a philosophy of playmaking that honourschildren as the active participants in a doll's world. It was Oliver's intelligenceand instinct that pursuaded Rumer Godden, the author of the stories to let himmake them into small films, and it a pleasure to restore the first series,twenty five years after they were first shown.
