TV: S is for...


PRE-WIDE AWAKE CLUB shortlived Saturday morning effort. Title stood for Soap Puzzles Laughter And Talent, although show rarely contained any of them. Presented by future Wide Awaker and Roland Rat production assistant JAMES BAKER, and boasted a quiz segment that featured a scoreboard made of hens laying eggs into tubes, plus No Adults Allowed, a soap opera starring (and allegedly written by) children, some older ones playing the parts of adults. Rumoured to also be directed by children but this was TV-am in 1984 so it’s unlikely that anyone could tell the difference.

    Are You Awake Yet? was another kids show by TV-AM.

    The obligatory 1980s mascot character was a Muppet / Stewie Griffin hybrid who I used to nickname “Melon Gob” due to the shape of his head!

    The opening titles looked like they were animated by pre-teens & were featured in a book on TV Graphics.
