Childhood memories

I was thinking today about the programmes that Anya loves to watch on TV and the ones I used to watch when I was little. It doesn't feel so very long ago since I was a child but the difference between television programmes then and now is phenomenal.

TV now is light years away from TV then. Pinky & Perky, The Herb Garden, Playschool, they all seem so old and antiquated, so quiet and gentle. Kid's TV now is full of shouting and manic teenagers.

I have tried to interest Anya in the programmes of my youth but she always looks at me as if I'm mad, they're just not interesting enough for her. You had to be there I suppose - my favourite was The Woodentops on Watch With Mother, would I watch it now? I thought yes, but then I found it on You Tube...
