Blue Peter I would have been more into this if I'd had some egg cartons and double sided sticky tape. :)

Blue Peter-loved blue peter as a kid! I remember entering a competition one year to design a doctor who character and I was one of the runner ups hehe so chuffed in that moment :)

Bill and Ben the flowerpot men The pioneers of children's television in Britain were Frida Lingstrom and Maria Bird at the BBC who developed the 'Watch with Mother' slot and invented the characters Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben and the Woodentops amongst others.

Mr Benn. Second only to Trumpton & Camberwick Green.

Mr Benn, loved this one. A man in a bowler hat who went into a fancy dress shop, picked a costume and once he'd put it on was transported to another place and time.
