characters The Curiosities of British Children's TV Read & Download The Curiosities of British Children's TV 104 Ben Ricketts î 4 Read O Earthfasts and Running Scared to name but a few this book is a journey through the hidden gems and oddities of British children's TV Featuring exclusive interviews with the people behind the shows it's an indispensable guide for rediscovering these shows and rightly celebrating themThe complete list of shows covered are1 Sebastian the Incredible Drawing dog2 Jackson Pace The Great Years3 Let s begin this review by saying nostalgia is not what it wasHowever The Curiosities of British Children s TV by Ben Ricketts certainly gives it a wonderful shot in the armThe book is a collection of pen pictures each recalling a forgotten classic of British kid s TV I will not mention any of the shows that Ricketts visits as I will let you a future reader have the pleasure of discovering them anew As a child of 1974 there are plenty of shows that I remember which come under Ricketts joyous spotlightThere are a good few that I don t recall particularly those that aired on ITV We were a staunch BBC household for many years However such is Ricketts enthusiasm and humour that it becomes easy to engage with the topics under discussion This book has clearly been a labour of love for Ricketts Throughout the book he describes many trips to the BFI viewing archives in London and there are interviews with key contributors within many of the essaysThis book however is enhanced by running YouTube alongside it While Ricketts prose is refreshed by his painstaking research this cannot be the same for the reader so a uick look at some video footage definitely helpsWhile I feel this book would fit best for those born in the mid seventies through to mid eighties there are treats and warmth there for readers of any vintageWonderfully written and engaging this is an easy five stars and thoroughly recommended Enjoy a trip into the vaults
