      Just remembered a few more,......Paulus the(little),woodgnome. I think that was a Dutch import?

      Here come the Double Deckers.

      Follyfoot.

      Rent-a-ghost.

      Ivor the Engine.

      Pardon my Genie.

      Roberts Robots.

      Flashing Blade i think was a French import, as was Belle and Sebastian. They were always on, on a Saturday i think,and always at School holidays! The Owl Service was from the books by Alan Garner.

        I loved Top Cat. Though, when I watched it, it was called Boss Cat.
        Was there a hint of the cat imitating Phil Silvers?

          imdb covers both those points:

          The character Benny the Ball was voiced by Maurice Gosfield. He also played Private Duane Doberman on The Phil Silvers Show (1955), which "Top Cat" was based on. When the cartoon was shown on British television in the 1960s and 1970s the title was changed to Boss Cat because there was a brand of cat food named Top Cat.

              It always bothered me that he only brushes one side of his mouth, not both during the end credits:

                      Indeed.......(courtesy wikipedia)

                      Bleep and Booster is a children's cartoon series by William Timym (pronounced Tim) originally shown on the BBC's Blue Peter. A total of 313 five-minute episodes were released between 1964 and 1977.

                        So it started during the Trace/Singleton era of BP then - I didn't think it made it to the Groom/Wenner/Heath era.

                              might as well finish:
                              The Singing Ringing Tree
                              Camberwick Green
                              The Magic Roundabout (feature film)
                              Lavender Castle
                              loads of Doctor Who (of course)
                              loads of Jupiter Moon (soap)

                              of the tv insert discs there's
                              a nice couple with Matthew Corbett Sooty
                              Wombles
                              the four Narinia series
                              four Beatrix Potters
                              four Wind In the Willows
                              an old St. Trininia's feature

                              and that's it off the top of my head
