Did anybody really watch Blue Peter when they were young?
Yes, never missed it, often best programme of the week !!!
I guess it passed its relevance with kids pretty quickly.
Dunno, I gave up with it around 1978, because I'd turned into a cynical teenager.
People often deride Thames's Magpie, for being a downmarket copy of Blue Peter.
Copy, well, possibly; downmarket, not really, look at this from 1972:-
Of course it contains the obligatory 'presenters running down a TV centre corridor' No live children's programme from that era would be complete without that !
