The Banana Splits was a favourite of mine - strange thing is I remember it in colour, but my folks only had a black and white TV when I was a small nipper.

Fake memories?

Anyone remember this? The Flashing Blade. I quite enjoyed it as a kid, even though I was always a bit hazy about why these guys were hurtling around fighting each other and hiding out in beseiged castles. It transpires, it was set the War of Mantuan succession - which has to be one of the most oibscure settings for a kids tv programme ever.

Pussycat Willum, Ollie Beak and Fred Barker (who grew up to be Basil Brush). Happy days.

Top of The Pops especially in the '70's and '80's - so many of the DJ presenters were wholesome role models for all of us. How many people wanted to be just like Jimmy Saville?

 

 The Radio 1 DJs were a bunch of uncool twats.

 There was more than a hint of sarcasm intended SOG...

 Indeed, but I needed to unload on the Smashie and Nicey brigade.

There was a kids series at the end of the 50s called The Red Grass. No one knew where this grass came from but it was fatal to the touch. If I remember correctly its theme tune was Mars from the Planet Suite. I never hid behind the sofa for Dr Who but did as a 5 year old for this programme.
