Feeling nostalgic ...

At the weekend we went to a 1940's event at Ramsey in Cambridgeshire. There were lots of interesting things to see but we kept forgetting to take pictures - doh!

Anyhow, we did take a picture of this 1955 outside broadcasting wagon:

This is how the old 425 line tv pictures used to look (not outside broadcast) and what I watched a few years later than those below, in my childhood:

Andy Pandy (1952) from here

Bill and Ben (1953) rocked your boat from here

The Woodentops (1958) here

Finally, Rag Tag & Bobtail (1958) here

Have a lovely weekend everyone! 


  1. What about Picture book on mondays!? we always missed Rag Tag and Bobtail because of going on the bus to Stowmarket and Grandma's house and she didn't have a TV until much later. The Wooden tops was my favourite.and the way Bill and Ben talked to each other

    1. We rarely had access to tv but when we did, they were some of the things we watched. I don't remember Rag, Tag and Bobtail but watched Tales of the Riverbank. Hartley Hare freaked me out! Andy Pandy and Bill and Ben were my favourites.
