It’s a rainy day here in London so to cheer myself up, I’ve been thinking about childhood TV and how the shows I remember from when I was young seem to beat the newbie shows. I grew up in 80’s and was a teen in the 90’s, here are some of the the shows that stand out in my memory……
Fraggle Rock – a show with multi-coloured puppets and an amazing theme song. Going down to Fraggle Rock – classic!
Byker Grove – the Newcastle teen show that launched Ant and Dec – remember the paint ball episode? I had a big crush on Dec (far right in the photo above) 🙂
Clarissa Explains It All – cheesy teen show starring Melissa Joan Hart. It was show during Live and Kicking – the saturday morning BBC show and I never missed it!
Knightmare – a virtual reality game show for kids. At the time, the graphics were amazing and I felt their fear as they run across floors that crumbled beneath them – Run!
Five Children and It – a BBC drama about a group of kids who meet a sand fairy who can grant wishes and the chaos he brings.
Round the Twist – probably the weirdest and most catchy theme tune ever, this show was so weird but so watchable! “Have you ever ever felt like this….”
Saved by the Bell – a teen sitcom from USA. Everyone loved Zac and Screech was a disaster at everything. It went downhill as they got older but a true classic!
The Crystal Maze – a brilliant game show where you had to find crystals hidden in themed rooms that trapped you if you didn’t get to it in time. presented by Richard O-Brian, it was brill!
