Classic British TV and Film

Everyone has a nostalgic feel for the films and television of their childhood. For me it was the 80s and 90s with shows like Cockleshell Bay, Rod Hull and Emu, Thomas the Tank Engine, cartoons like Ulysses 31, He-man, Thundercats and Dogtanian and BBC TV dramas such as Moondial, Five Children and It, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Box of Delights and The Borrowers. I loved a lot more than that from the period but it turns out a quite a bit of what was on were repeats. I particularly remember my Sundays featuring shows like The Flintstones, The Land of the Giants, Lost In Space, The Invaders, The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie – all 60s and 70s shows (and American). My favourites; Bagpuss, Basil Brush, Mr Men, and The Flumps were also from the 70s and Camberwick Green, Chigley and Trumpton were all from the 60s. I guess my point is that so much of childhood tv memories are shared across the generations – I could go on, but I won’t, I don’t want to get carried away 🙂
