THAT’S JOHN CRAVEN’S Newsround. Not the parade of non-threatening blandalikes in trendy haircuts who came afterwards. Original ‘Round presented real news in a pre-CSE digestible manner (VAT, energy crisis, Rhodesia), child-friendly trivia (domino toppling, Gossamer Albatross) and the TONIGHT-style “humourous” And Finally story which now forms ninety per cent of ITN’s evening bulletins. John had reliable uncle role down to a tee with copious wardrobe of chunky-knit sweaters to match. Frantic xylophone/percussion theme Johnny One-Note icing on the cake. One of the best programmes ever made.
