‘Take Hart Everyone’

IMG_1361What a treat this was. We took our Beau over to the Portsmouth Museum the other day to take lourselves a look at the ‘Story of Children’s Television’ from 1946 to the present day.

This interactive family friendly exhibition drew a lot of interest and has been very well attended so far.

It looked in detail at animation, drama, puppets, and factual programmes. Showing examples of memorabilia, merchandise, clips and images from iconic children’s programmes. The original objects and characters span the decades, from the Woodentops to the original Tracey Island model created on Blue Peter. Gordon the Gopher was there, the Wombles, Rastamouse, and the singing veggies from Mr Bloom’s Nursery.

The exhibition was created by the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry and is supported by the BBC, ITV Kaleidoscope. The University of Warwick Department of Film and TV Studies, Ragdoll Productions and the Children’s Media Foundation.

Here then are a few images I wanted to share with you which might just to stir a few memories for those of us of a certain age; or for anyone who might simply just be interested.
