Science Workshop

DESPITE HAVING a Beebed-up version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’ for the theme, accompanied by a cartoon elephant jumping on a triangle, this two-man one-woman schools physics show was fair enough. Presenters: DAVID HARGREAVES (the hairy bloke off the “Ted!” Yellow Pages adverts), MALCOLM (who couldn’t get a Science Workshop jumper) and LINDA. Notable for the interplay between the three – senior, kindly David, keen but hapless Malcolm, and “bit of tottie” Linda (OK, not so progressive after all), and the classic Christmas edition featuring a bauble factory and Linda’s snazzy metallic ballgown. Even indulged in end-of-series “outtakes” banter. Malcolm did get a jumper in the end but its head hole was missing.

    Does anyone know where I could obtain a copy of this programme, that I actually appeared in probably between 1981-2 with my primary school. The school was Saint Aidans’ R.C. Primary school, wishaw. Many thanks in advance and I am eagerly waiting on your replies.
