4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Listen For Any Fan of The Show, 7 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Magic Roundabout (BBC Children's Collection) (Audio CD)
The Magic Roundabout is considered by many to be one of the most popular children's programmes from the 1960s, with its imaginative imagery, and dry wit provided by the narration of Eric Thompson. This disc contains 10 stories; along with a brief interview with Thompson himself on how he got involved with such an iconic programme.
The stories work well on their own, and they display how its broad appeal with kids and adults with its bizarre scenarios and humour that the grown-ups liked back in the 1960s. Some work better then others in audible form, such as Banana Skin and The Birds' Song, but some of them may require the actual imagery from the episode itself to get an idea of the scope and scale of some of the stories, such as The Stiff Necked Heliotropes.
Released back in 2005 to mark the release of a feature film reboot of the franchise, this CD may work in getting novices into the show, but may make more die-hard fans asked for a release of the episodes on DVD or download. It is fun while it lasts, and is worth a listen for any fan of the show.
