The two day event brought together guests from the world of TV and Film, along with live artists, prop builds, cosplayers and traders into one huge event.

Jamie And The Magic Torch

Here’s one even my mum remembers. And who could forget it? For years I search for Jamie and the Magic Torch on video, and then along came the Gods know as Pearson TV, who released it on video. Bless their cotton socks! To be honest, I couldn’t remember much about this program other than Jamie […]

Tiswas

What on Earth is going on with Saturday morning TV these days. God, that made me feel old! Anyway, back to my rant, what exactly is going on here? We have a bunch of wannabe stars (who in my opinion are more camp than a tent in a field) trying to entertain the kids of […]

On Safari

Safari? Sa Goodie! Never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day working hard at school. (Or […]

Knightmare

“Where am I?” “You’re in a room. There is a table in front of you and a sleeping orc on the right.” Don’t worry, you’ve not accidentally clicked to go to the chatroom. This is the audio-descriptive world of Knightmare! Knightmare was a TV show in which children had to remotely navigate a blindfolded, (or […]

Auf Wiedersehen Pet

November 1983 was when auf wiedersehen pet first hit our screens and is still one of the funniest and best loved tv series ever. The creator of this great show being Franc Roddam and scripts wrote by the legends that gave us Norman Stanley Fletcher and friends in Porridge – Ian La Frenais and Dick […]

Inch High Private Eye

Inch High, Private Eye was a 1970s animated cartoon series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which was resurrected in the 1980s to delight and entertain a brand new audience. Inch High was the self-styled “world’s biggest little detective” who worked for the Finkerton Detective Agency and he was really quite tiny – about one inch high […]

Count Duckula

To a small child vampires are a scary thing. Well they were to me anyway. So, if a children’s cartoon was to be made about this very subject, what could they do to tame the horrific topic. Hmmm, first of all, let’s make it not a bat, but a duck. Alright, yes a duck is […]

Button Moon

Let’s face it, the 80s was a very scary place to be, especially as far as kids TV was concerned. You may not have thought it then as you plonked yourself infront of the TV to watch your favourite programmes, but looking back on it now… Eek! No wonder I have grown up to be […]

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

Once again this cartoon truly shows that the 1980s was the pinnacle of cartoons for kids. Jayce & the Wheeled Warriors has time and again been voted the best cartoon intro ever and I find it hard for anyone to disagree. The cartoon wasnt to bad either. This has to be my joint favourite cartoon […]
