Programme Description (source: Wikipedia):
The Woodentops was a children's television series first shown on BBC Television in 1955. It was created by Freda Lingstrom and Maria Bird and featured on the Friday edition of Watch with Mother. The main characters were a family of wooden dolls who lived on a farm.
In this episode, Baby Woodentop causes mischief by repeatedly throwing his blanket out of his pram for Mummy Woodentop to pick up. Daddy Woodentop arrives home to dinner after a long day working in the turnip fields, the twins sing about eating sawdust and hay, and the narrator teases Spotty Dog with suggestions of biscuits, bones and baths.
This programme was transferred from a 20-year-old VHS cassette, but is still in good condition. Most of the artifacts were present in the original film recording, rather than a result of tape degradation.
