School's done, the fishfingers and chips have been scoffed and now it's time to sit down with a Texan bar and a packet of Spangles to enjoy the best kids' television that ITV has to offer...
Back in the day when childrens' programmes were, by turns, fun, challenging, dramatic, spooky, hilarious and fantastic, tea-time programming was a staple part of the lives of millions of kids. Diverse and highly popular, it fired imaginations and was invariably an integral part of any worthwhile playground antics the next day.
Relive those moments and be a kid again with this special two-disc set featuring the best of childrens' ITV programming from the `70s: specially selected episodes of Catweazle and Just William rub shoulders with the historical drama of Wreckers at Dead Eye and Boy Dominic, the fantastical Escape Into Night and Sky and the schoolkid anarchy that was Anything You Can Do.
Be ten again.
