    Was Cabbages and Kings (the Granada programme hosted by Nigel "Graffiti" Rees) a children's programme? I thought it was a TV equivalent of Radio 4's Quote Unquote. I know that it was scheduled close to children's programmes but I don't think that it was one.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Not entirely sure but I think the programme listed here is the one with Derek Griffiths, Johnny Ball and Julie Stevens, originally shown in the 1970s. I think the series was probably repeated in 1980.

    You had listed it amongst a few ITV programmes in which I assumed that you were referring to the Granada version.

    The Paul Daniels Magic Show wasn't a children's television programme either - it may have been repeated on BBC 2 during the summer, but it was first shown on BBC 1.

    Actually, you're correct. Cabbages and Kings, the 1970s series I was thinking of, was a BBC programme. I didn't realise that which is why I included it. The ITV programme listed will no doubt be the tv adaptation of the radio gameshow you mentioned.

    I was surprised to see it listed too. It must've been repeated. I have never seen The Singing Ringing Tree but I know a few people who did watch it and it had a similar effect on them
