I've just watched and episode of Mary, Mungo and Midge. I used to watch it all the time as a child along with Mr. Benn and Top Cat. I gave a little yippee when they pushed the lift button. Many memories. grin

What do you remember watching as a nipper?

ruby, having just read your post on TV programmes you hated to miss and now this post, I've decided you are far too young to be on gn grin

I'm a bit of a tweenie, too old for mumsnet (they all seem to have babies) and maybe for some things a little young for here, but I am a grandmother, so here I'll stay. But thanks for the compliment Kitty flowers

I must add though Kitty, when I was watching Going Live, I was a grown up with a young child, still loved it though. Well, my daughter had to have company while she watched it, didn't she? grin

I think there was a thread about this a while ago.

I remember all the usual watch with mother programmes but have gone blank as to what I watched aged 8-11ish.
I have to smile when I see the current CBBC advert that includes Swap Shop. DH and I used to watch that over a leisurely breakfast on a Saturday morning when we were first married grin (1975-80)

There weren't any televisions around when I was a young child. Well there were but only very very few folk had one.

I loved the Woodentops.

When my girls were young I used to enjoy watching Mr Benn and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe with them.
