    Bit of both. Two of my best rememberd programmes thou are;

    Mysterious cities of gold, which is still one of the best cartoon series ever made IMO. I have every episode on my PC which took me ages to track down!

    Knightmare I used to love because it was way ahead of your time, yet the techniques used to create the 'virtual world' were surprisingly simple. It's being shown very early mornings on challenge TV at the moment, probably for the very last time because the rights to show it are about to expire.

    Remember loads of others that have already been mentioned, but those two always stand out above the rest.

    Mike.

    What the devil was that called? that was awesome
    The Adventure Game!!
    they remade it but the first series was the best

    Yes both channels here...

    Yes Knightmare and thundercats

    All together now

    Thunder, thunder, thundercats, Ho!
    Thundercats are on the move,
    Thundercats are loose,
    Feel the magic, hear the Roar,
    Thundercats are loose,

    "programmes for schools and colleges"
    Now anticompetitive under EC legislation, for the BBC to make educational resources...

    I was always a CBBC man myself. I vaguely remember Philip Schofield presenting but Andy Crane and Andi Peters are the two I remember the most. CITV had the occasional thing worth watching (How 2 was a favourite) but for the most part it seemed like rubbish compared to what was on CBBC

    No-one has mentioned the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles yet either. Or Ulysses 31 although I was probably a bit young to understand that at the time.

    Hmmm Programs from childhood.

    I loved MONKEY !!! I never could remember when it was on but it is a classic.
    The adventure game ... Oh yes, now this was good.
    Trapdoor .. A Quality kids program.
    Scoobydoo . Currently watching again along with Tom & Jerry with the 4 year old.

    And what about the ones that made you switch over.

    Button moon, Trumpton, Bagpuss and all the ilk. Never liked em and jumped up off the couch to switch (No remote !! Kids dont know they have it so good) off with a passion.

    just to be extremely pedantic
    the phone number in the OP should be

    0181 811 81 81

    If I remember that was for things like Going Live and other BBC saturday morning progs.
    How sad is it I can remember a phone number from about 20 odd years ago, one that I never called. All thanks to my impressionable mind and RainMan like abilities to remember numbers :P
