  • Name of 80's kids tv prog on at lunchtimes?

    Hi Can anyone remember a kids tv show in the later 80's that was on at lunchtimes on weekdays. I think it was a show made up of either little bits or a different thing every day. 1 was about a dolly, but the 1 I esp remember was a man who used to create a town (and maybe other things) out of sand and use wooden veichles etc in it to tell a story?

          Thanks, I don't think it was anything to do with that, having looked it up.

                Rosie and Jim? It was presented by Postman Pat author John Cunliffe.

                  Thanks, no it wasn't Rosie and Jim. It wasn't an introduction, it was a propper programme that lasted at least 10 mins if not more. I'm not sure if there were a few different little features within one show, or just a short one every day. The only one I can remember clearly is the sand box town/veichle one with the older man. Mayb it wasn't on at lunchtimes, but I thought it was!

                    The sand box town sounds like Potty Time with Michael Bentine.

                      Was it bizarre and psychedelic? Could be Pob's Programme? I think it was on channel 4?

                        Pob was on Sunday mornings, I think.

                          I remember Pob used to spit on the screen, which is something my mum hated -- and me.

                            Yes, the blowing hot air onto glass and writing one's name - used to do that on the bedroom window during the cold months.
