Postman Pat was based on a series of books by John Cunliffe, the program is about a rural postman who helps his friends in the village of Greendale, based supposedly in Cumbria, England. The first series of thirteen 15-minute episodes was produced by Woodland Animations and broadcast by the BBC in 1981. Ivor Wood, a vetaran of animations like The Magic Roundabout, was at the helm as producer. Ken Barrie sang the well known theme tune and provided the narration. The stories were very successful and have seen endless repeats over the years. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show in 1991, the old production crew was reunited for two one-off 25 minute specials, again shown by the BBC. Two more came in 1995, and these were followed by a second full series of 13 adventures. Then, after almost 10 years of absence from our screens, Postman Pat returned in 2004 for his third series.

Bill brings his model plane and Pat ties an SOS message to it and flies it over to Peter, giving him the message to clear the blockage with his tractor and bulldozer plough.
It seems ages since the plane has gone. Just when Pat is thinking it has crashed, he hears an engine coming along the road and sees Peter on his tractor. He clears the mud away and there is just enough room for Sam to get through and then Pat. Pat sees Ted mending a wall. He asks Ted to have a look at the church roof. Ted says he'll go along when he's finished. Miss Hubbards stops for a chat. Pat suggests she turn back otherwise she'll have to swim home. However, it'll take more than a drop of rain to stop Miss Hubbard and she heads on her way. Pat heads on his way too.

It is a windy day in Greendale and Pat is finding it difficult to steer his van. Alf Thompson is nearly blown off his feet. Suddenly, Pat sees a fallen tree blocking the road; he stops and gets out to look at it. Peter Fogg is on the other side; he walks off to get a chainsaw to cut the tree up. Pat takes the branches away so Peter can lift the tree out of the way.
After the road is unblocked, Pat goes back to his van, but it has gone. He soon finds it safe and sound next to Sam's Mobile Shop. Sam had moved the van to protect it from branches that may be a threat to its paint work. Suddenly as Pat drives on his way, the van's engine starts to splutter and clank. Pat stops and gets out to check the engine and the wind blows his hat off. Pat chases after the hat but he cannot catch it and the wind blows it into a stream. So Pat gives up on it and goes back to the van. He soon spots the trouble with the engine; a cable has snapped, but it is no trouble to fix. Pat puts the problem right and is soon on his way again.
When Pat calls at the school, his letters get blown away. The children help to catch them and Bill Thompson takes them to the Headmaster.

It is foggy in Greendale and Pat is driving carefully along the road. He soon arrives at the post office late, but there is no sign of the letters yet, so Mrs. Goggins invites him into her sitting room for some tea and biscuits. Then before Pat can eat his favourite biscuit, the postman from Pencaster arrives with the mail. Pat helps Mrs. Goggins to sort the letters and is soon on his way again.
On the way, the lights on Pat's van are not much help in the fog, so he stops to check a sign post, only to discover that it is a crossroads sign. Pat does not know which way to go, so he walks along the road, trying to see through the fog without losing sight of his van. Suddenly, he sees someone standing in a field. Pat thinks it is Ted Glen out after rabbits, so he goes over with a letter for him. Pat touches Ted on the shoulder, but he does not move. Pat puts the letter in Ted's pocket. Still, he does not move. Finally, Pat gives him a nudge. The figure spins round and it turns out to be a scarecrow. Pat feels very silly, but luckily no one has seen him, so he says goodbye to the scarecrow and makes his way back to the road. Alf Thompson passes by on his tractor and shows Pat the correct way to go. Pat is on his way again and he soon sees Sam Waldron at the side of the road. Pat stops to buy some cough sweets from him.
The next stop is at the church and Pat gives some letters to the Reverend Timms. The Reverend remarks that not even fog will stop Miss Hubbard coming to choir practice. When Pat returns to his van, he discovers that Jess is gone. Pat goes out into the fog to search for him. He soon finds Jess, but now they are both lost in the fog and cannot find the road again, let alone his van. Meanwhile Miss Hubbard finds Pat's van on her way to the church, but there is nobody inside. She and the Reverend ring the church bells and Pat is able to find his way back. Back at the church, Pat has had a cup of tea prepared for him and there is also some milk for Jess. Suddenly Miss Hubbard spots the sunshine coming in through the stained glass window. A breeze has blown the fog away, so now Pat and Jess can deliver the post without any trouble at all. As they drive along in the van, they spot the scarecrow again. Pat reckons that he is still waiting for a letter.

He runs back inside to get his hat and trips over Jess. Pat puts his hat on his head, picks Jess up and drives off to work in a big hurry.
It is past 9.00 at the Post Office. Mrs. Goggins is fixing a messy parcel. Pat soon arrives and as he gets out, his hat falls off and as he bends down to pick it up, his van's door slams on his bottom. Pat tells Mrs. Goggins his alarm-clock did not wake him up and she shows him the messy parcel she is fixing. His hat gets caught in the sticky tape! Pat pulls it off and the tape sticks all over his fingers. Mrs. Goggins pulls it off and finally puts the rest of the parcel together.
Pat stops his van near a spot where Ted Glen is fixing a fence. As Pat gives Ted his parcel, it just falls to bits and lots of nuts and bolts roll into the grass. They look for them but with no luck.

Pat is delighted, so they take all the post out of Pat's van and put it into Sam's mobile shop.
Sam takes Pat to see Dr. Gilbertson to look at his injured hand. The Doctor tells Pat his wrist is not broken and that he will soon be alright in a few days, but she gives him some cream to soothe it. Pat and Sam then set off on their rounds; Sam sorts out the people's shopping and Pat gives them their post. At the end of the day Sam takes Pat and Jess home.
