in some ways I hope they don't make another series. What made any of the programs Oliver Postgate made was Oliver Postgate and his background. If you have not read his biography I can recommend it. I suspect much of the actual feel of the original would be sanitized.
The trend to remake old TV series and films is bad for two or three reasons. One it shows they can't think up a new idea, secondly the political background has changed over past 50 years, and thirdly political correctness changes some things which are part of original, and important to some(possibly not others though).
Imagine what would be said if someone decided to rewrite some classic novels from 19th century just because they did not fit in with current thinking and political correctness. It has been done on some more recent classics though. As bad if not worse than rewriting history .
