I wrote a post last week about books I remembered from my childhood, and that set me thinking about TV programmes I remembered. We didn’t have a television until I was about 12 so some of the things I remember I might have seen at a friend’s house, or at my aunt and uncle’s where I occasionally stayed for the weekend.
So, in no particular order, here are some blasts from the past:
Crackerjack (It’s Friday, it’s five to five . . . It’s Crackerjack!)
Belle and Sebastian
Skippy (Skippy, Skippy, Skippy the bush kangaroo…)
Daktari (with Clarence the cross-eyed lion)
and Topo Gigio.
Topo didn’t have a show of his own, but I remember him being part of a UK weekend variety-type show. I can’t remember who the host was, or the name of the show, but I always looked forward to seeing Topo Gigio. I did a search on You Tube and found quite a few clips.
What were your favourite TV programmes when you were a child?
