    Default Can Anyone else Remember Lizzy Dripping?

    Hi all...

    for years I was terrified by the Witch in a Jackanory (remember that?) teatime Kids story called 'Lizzy Dripping' (honest, although it sounds like a
    bad pornstar name!!)..I cant remember much of it as I was about 5 but I do remember the Witch used to appear from behind a grave to a wee lassie with Pigtails in a Cemetary? Can anayone else remember this show? Would love to see it again....maybe its lost in the annals of time....lol..

    Kind regards...

    Rab ;0)

    Default Lizzie Dripping

    One of the Blue Peter presenters Tina Heath played Lizzie and she had a witch for a friend who lived in the local graveyard and only Lizzie could see her! She had a younger brother and her classmates used to sing
    'Lizzie Dripping Lizzie Dripping dont look now your fibs are slipping!' cos they thought she was telling lies cos only she could see the witch when they couldn't.

    Loved this show, there was a video of 3 episode out in the early 90's but no dvd.
    I've got the three episodes now onto dvd, and i meet Tina last week.

    I have the book. Sonia Dresdel was the witch, Tina Heath (as mentioned above) was Lizzie, Barbara Mitchell was Patty Arbuckle and Geoffrey Matthews was Albert Arbuckle. It was filmed on location in Nottinghamshire although I believe the seaside scenes were at Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire.

    Love Lizzie Dripping, its a series that is long over due for a dvd release.

    Tina Heath was about 18 when she played Lizzie in the series. I've been to village where the series was filmed and seen most of the locations there, it was filmed in a place called Eakring which is in Nottinghamshire. Helen Cresswell who wrote Lizzie Dripping and many other children's books also lived at Eakring and I met her on a few occasions, she was a wonderful person. I also met Tina Heath briefly who was also very nice. Where did you meet Tina Heath 'Tiswas77'? Its always worth looking out for the 2 tape audio book of Lizzie Dripping which is read by Tina.

    Meet Tina at a Blue Blue's 50th birthday event at BAFT. Check out my profile page for pic of Tina and me.
    I got Tina to sign my Lizzy Dripping by the sea, and yes it was filmed in Mablethorpe sometime in the first two week of June.

    1974 was when Lizzie Dripping was on

    This VHS is a compilation of three episodes:

    1) Lizzie Dripping & the Little Angel

    2) Lizzie Dripping Tries a Spell

    3) Lizzie Dripping by the Sea

    This compilation of three episodes of Lizzie Dripping/Penelope Arbuckle portrayed by Tina Heath before she joined Blue Peter

    I'm sure Tina Heath would rather not be reminded of this programme she starred in lol Just like Aled Jones just hates to be reminded of the Snowman song he sang lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it. We would annihilate each other
