What kids tv do you remember?

Musn't forget Dick Barton, Special Agent on the radio. The whole family tuned into that. Hancock's Half Hour was another favourite. Watched the coronation on a neighbours tv and I think soon afterwards, we had one. Wasn't there a Children's Hour?

SonyaK I think the programme you were thinking of was called "That Was The Week That Was"? It was on a Saturday evening and I remember Millicent Martin had a regular spot where she sang. We used to enjoy that programme very much.

I was going to say the same thing Dottie... we watched That Was the Week that Was Sonya. I think that was where Roy Castle probably made his debut too. I think that was the first satire programme I'd ever seen and we were a bit shocked by it's irreverence. Now if you watched it, you would wonder why!

Not children's TV but I remember laughing at Fanny Craddock! Then Graham Kerr the Galloping Gourmet was like a breath of fresh air.

remembering childrens tv...


i was only allowed to watch john cravens newsround and blue peter. but then, the wonders of suddenly having a baby brother meant i was allowed to watch grange hill.

my brother got to watch a lot more tv, than me - a HUGE age gap between us, and he watched cartoons like he-man and transformers.

Oh and on saturday mornings, i was allowed to watch noel edmonds swap shop - but dad always wanted to watch tiswas, which for some strange reason my mum totally dis-approved of???!!! lol.

and i was also brought up on "listen with mother" and the archers.. but i listened with my nan.

Childhood TV

Like others we didn't have TV when I was a child, we rented our first set just after the Coronation. However my earliest memories are radio - Children's Hour (Larry the Lamb in Toytown), Dick Barton Special Agent, Children's Favourites, Uncle Mac etc.

Showing my age I know, but children's TV passed me by and we too watched That was the Week That Was, but also remember earlier shows like the Perry Como Show, Andy Williams and Come Dancing - all those sequins and formation dancing!! Happy times!!

Yes, that was the one. Not a kids show but we did think it was great. As you said, the first satire program for me too.

kids tv

I watched many of the above kids programmes the early ones would be Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben, The Wooden Tops with Daddy and baby and that dog, didn't he walk funny, they were on after lunch and each had it's own day.
Anyone remember Romper Room with Miss Rosalind.
And when I was at secondary school we used to rush home to watch Crossroads I think it came on about 20 past 4, that's an odd time so maybe my mind is playing tricks on me.

Television

Most of the programmes mentioned I remember going back to the Grove Family and The Appleyards. My children used to watch Rent-a-Ghost and the Double Deckers about some children whose den was an old double-decker bus. We all loved the Magic Roundabout.
