FINAL resting place of the one-time broadcasting institution, by then very much on its last legs thanks to the machinations of Derek Griffiths and Barnaby. Glory days of youngsters giving a flying fuck about the exploits of My Naughty Little Sister and The Yompity Yo were long gone, and later years saw attempts to update wildly anachronistic approach by bringing in folk-rockers like Nola York and finally desperately involving Noel Edmonds in some capactity, but to no avail. Cancelled in 1982, to much still-enduring wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Last week’s episode seemed to put the “fun” into perfunctory and didn’t to our mind offer much we hadn’t seen before, though the casting did inspire an item on See Hear which surely now makes it a clean sweep of BBC programmes to have gone behind the scenes of it. The second half might be a bit more interesting, though, not least because it’s a kind-of historical in that it’s set in 1980.
