    i uploaded the boy from space to you tube, just use a youtube downloader and save them to the desktop, then you can burn them onto a disc or ipod to view on tv. dont waste money buying from people not willing to share, i too paid for discs and prefer to know there are other people who enjoy watching them, why should i deprive them of that?

    I used to love Watch, that reminds me of my time in Infants school.

    The only dragon I can think of from that era is Duncan the Dragon from You and Me. His head was made of an egg box and painted green. Who remembers Alice and Crow from the series?

    How We Used To Live - I was forced to watch that at my Junior school each week but we all got rather in to it. The series we saw was set around the thirties and forties and did indeed feature Avril, also her parents and elder siblings. I think her sister married a GI called Anton - we all fancied him! Years later the series set in the sixties showed poor Avril dying in a road accident whilst listening to the Rolling Stones.
    I certainly do remember Alice and Crow - Alice was a timid hamster and crow was a well....crow.

    This site is pretty good, he's still to add the Words and Pictures information, but its still worth a look.

    Re: Watch /Look and REAd

    I remember watching this at infants school. I vividly remember the big magic pencil and someone explaining how to write an "a"
    "Up, down, around and kick!"

    And I remember them telling the story of a little girl monster whos mum and dad had another baby and she was jealous and kept being naughty.
    I remember liking the story and my mum buying me the book, but I dont have it anymore and cannot remember what it was called. Does anyone know what I mean? Would have been late 80's?
