TV: H is for...

Heidi

AND STILL THEY COME. Infamous school holiday-spanning serial of War And Peace proportions, or so it felt, dragging its feet across many a childhood summer’s telly with its appallingly dubbed dialogue, ugly child actors, boring plotlines and intensely annoying trite shite theme. Programme did itself no favours by casting girl who looked like overgrown version of the PLAY SCHOOL doll Hamble in titular role. Every single fucking episode involved Heidi being dragged away from her “beloved hills” to the mean streets of Frankfurt, running amok and upsetting Fraulein Rottermeyer with kittens, then being sent back again not wanting to leave Clara who couldn’t walk. Put an entire generation off German exchange students.

    It always seemed to be on on a Thursday, every bloody summer. That and then We Are The frigging Champions, no wonder I hated the summer

    I’ve heard that this makes up most of the daytime scheduling on Austrian television. Heidi visits the cheese factory, Heidi visits the schnaps distillery etc.
