Day Therapy Unit Quiz 19 – Tuesday 11th August

Another week, another fantastic, challenging Quiz for you to tackle and get the grey matter ‘exercising’.

Yesterday we heard that Newsround was being cut back on the BBC.  What you may not know is that in line with Blue Peter, both programmes have been transferred to the CBBC channel.  In the old days, we only had 2 channels BBC and STV and as a child were you a Blue Peter fan or a Magpie devotee?  Names you will recall from BP:   Chris Trace/Val Singleton/John Noakes/Mark Curry/Janette Feilding/Lesley Judd and the presenter who hold the record  (beating Val in to second place), Konnie Huq.   Over on the other side we had:  Douglas Rae/ Jenny Hanley/Mick Roberston/Susan Stranks and Tony Bastable.  From memory there were more ‘pets’ in Blue peter and did any of you manage to get a badge?   BP were also famous for their Annual appeals and making Advent decorations.  When I saw Val and Princess Anne visit Tree tops, I had in my mind that one day I would be at the very spot and 22 years later I achieved my goal.  You can guess from the article which programme I preferred!! There are plenty of other oldie programmes to talk about and next week HOW!!     Best of luck with this weeks challenge and NO Googling.   Best wishes Lawrence.
