Kids TV favourites…
Having read Jackie’s post on Stitches by the Sea I thought I would share a couple of my favourites from way back when.
1. Playschool – aimed at preschool kids, a couple of grown-ups and some toys (Humpty, Hamble, Jemima, Big Ted and Little Ted)
2. Blue Peter (still running today)
Now the reason I liked both of these programmes was they made things. In fact when I was 8 or 9 my ambition was to be a Play School presenter. I didn’t think I would be able to hack it as a Blue Peter presenter – all that climbing and jumping out of things was not for me. However, telling stories to the toys and making things would have been right up my street.
My dream never happened, when I left big school I was directed towards a nice little secretarial course.
