Fun Food Factory, The

HALF HOUR Saturday morning effort piloted by Nanette Newman. Show would start with Nanette walking through a highly-coloured cartoonish set, gathering her group of young cooks, who would sing the theme song as they set off down the road to the Factory. Then they’d cook. On the cartoony kitchen wall behind them was a large “DANGER” sign, which would start flashing (accompanied by an alarm bell) whenever anyone picked up a knife – this was Nanette’s cue to deliver a short homily on the careful use of sharp objects.

    There is actually an episode of this on You Tube. It’s painful to watch – stilted and very patronising when explaining things to the children taking part. No wonder LWT kept this little delight to itself.
