Blue Peter at 50
Saturday 11 October 2008
8:40pm - 9:40pm
On 16 October 1958, a 15-minute programme featuring train sets and dolls aired for the first time
on the BBC. Fifty years on, Blue Peter is the world's longest-running children's TV series and has
probably been watched avidly by almost everyone in the country when they were younger.
This is an affectionate and nostalgic patchwork of recollections (from presenters representing
every decade of the show's history), mishaps, fearless exploits, appeals, pets and badges.
It also includes out-takes and previously unseen footage (no matter how many shows you
watched, there will be something here you missed). And, of course, Advent crowns, an
out-of-control elephant, Tracy Island and sticky-backed plastic all make an appearance.
