    I think BP was brilliantly well compiled and very effective back in the Biddy Baxter days but got messed about with too much during the 90's onwards.

    It depended on the presenters. Some of them were annoying to watch even to child me.

    hmm... maybe just a bit different

    ...and I should probably say, the old ones were never annoying in my young eyes.

    I was or at least tried to be a Magpie kid as it was the in thing and very cool and hip to watch back then,alas my parants kept turning it over to bbc.I do however remember John Nokes,peter pervis and val as the best blue peter presenters with Petra and Shep.I suppose after all these years I remember blue peter very well,but only the theme tune remains in my mind from magpie.

    Default Blue Peter or Magpie??

    Where you a BluePeter or a Magpie Kid?

    I remeber them both being on at the same time. My hazy recolection was that Blue Peter was slightly aimed at Middle Class of the day and Magpie Working Class.

    Please don't flame me about class wars etc but it is totally in a humblest of opinions and what I remember of the TV of the time. late 70's early 80's.

    Is this a fair representation of them or just my failing memory.

    I was a Blue Peterer (at the time of the classic line up of Noakes, Purves and Judd), Magpie was very much a wannabee. One thing I did like about Magpie, apart from the brilliant theme was their appeal. Where as Blue Peter collected stamps, had bring and buys, collected rags etc, Magpie just said "Give us your cash".

    No you're right Blue Peter was more middle class I think.

    I always found it boring to be honest, but I didn't bother with Magpie either - loved the theme tune though.

    Have to admit its a difficult one between Magpie and Blue Peter...Magpie had the best theme tune imho but then I think that BP had the better makes and articles.
    I must say though I think Susan Stranks and Jenny Hanley win the sexiest presenters award.
