On The Pogles: What makes an immersive document?

Here is an episode of The Pogles, a children’s television program from the 1960s. The film is in stop motion, made by the wonderful Oliver Postgate.

I write nowadays about immersive documents emerging from exotic technology, new narrative writing methods, and a populace madly keen to escape reality via participation in unreal realities. Except that, just sometimes, we can be transported into the unreal realm by far simpler mechanisms. I have written previously about immersive stories (see here), and in this small piece of writing I invite you to spend 9 minutes or so telling yourself that Pogles and magic plants don’t exist!

Note also:

1) In the 60s, alcoholic beverages are a *good thing*

2) In the 60s, there is no email and so plenty of time for adventure
