Did anybody regularly watch schools programmes outside of school or did you only watch them at school?
I only watched them at school, and at my primary school (1969 to 75), we only watched BBC school programmes.
Possibly because until 1972, the school only had a single 405 line telly, and only a Band I 'X' aerial
looking at Crystal P. Radio schools programmes were far more common, we had 'Music and Movement' on Radio 4 daily. The FM tuner was in the headmaster's office, and the audio from it was distributed to the six classrooms on a 100 volt line system.
At secondary school (75-80) there was an N1500 Philips VCR. We never watched any programmes live,
and I recall most programmes we did watch were not schools progs. BBC Horizon, and ATV's John Pilger
docs stick in my mind.
The N1500 was terrible, if you had sound and vision at the same time from it, it was mere co-incidence !
