The demise of children’s television

 The TV regulator published a report about how bad children’s telly is today.  It’s all true.

I remember the days when a children’s TV presenter could dress as a dragon murmur, “Gronda Gronda”, taunt Cheggers on a vortex with jokes about evaporated milk, and then get a job on BBC news within a few months leading to a job lasting 25 years.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

  1. Gronda gronda indeed
    A fine programme.
    On an unrelated note, if there is a general election (and I for one don’t believe there will be until the Holyrood Honeymoon is over or the black ops team do a John Smith / Robin Cook on the wee eck), what name do you think the Alex Salmond For First Minster party will use, ‘Alex Salmond is First Minister’?

    • Alex Salmond
      Who knows – I’m not sure how an election would fit with the registration of party names. The PR ploy of appearing top of the list or confusing an individual with a party is less important at Westminster elections as it’s strict alphabetical order by candidate surname. Expect a glut of plum,bers that run emergenecy services and take the opening sections in the Yellow Pages ot be chosen as canddiates across the country 😉
      There is also a rumour floated by Iain “Ch ch ch chip ‘n'” Dale (Rescue Rangers) last week that wee Eck may decide to try his luck against Gordon to make things more interesting.

    This is what happens when you employ Lucindas and Emmas from Guildford straight off Media Studies courses!
