A handful of Joys with memories to treasure!,
This review is from: Look Back On 70's Telly - Issue 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I can tell you that if you were a tiny tot growing up during the 1970's then this DVD is possibly one of the best that you can spend your money on. I have fond memories of lunch time telly and many fond memroies of watching them with parents and grandparents who are no longer around. Some of the programmes I had not seen in over 30 years, and I was keen to see how the memories that I had of these programmes (some very vague indeed) that had stayed with me all these years compared to actually sitting down and watching the programme for this first time in 3 decades.
One of the most anticipated was 'A Handful of Songs' - the theme tune had stick in my head all these years - finally being able to see it again was a delight.
There are so many programmes here - Network have done a wonderful job in collecting together something for everyone. My son who has just turned 3 loves watching this DVD.
Not only do you get all these shows but you also get a mini comic with a new adventure for Hartley Hare and the pipkins gang - their first since December 1981!
Even if you don't remember ALL of the shows on this 2 disc set - there will be plenty of memories that you will enjoy reliving and perhaps even rediscover something that you used to enjoy with delight as a tiny tot but had forgotten.
Now is the time to tack that trip back to your childhood!

Mrs. A. Noakes says:
"We've gotta handful of songs to sing you..."

Yes I got this and it is fab!! Some of the presenters not all as I remembered them..it was nice to see the old Bungle on Rainbow when he still looked scary, before the days of Rod, Jane and Freddy and the original side-kick who's name has just escaped my memory!! Great viewing!

A Handful of Songs! I agree: ten minutes of simple joy.
