    It was Baldmoney, Sneezewort, Dodder and Cloudberry. Which was adapted from the book The Little Grey Men by Denys Watkins-Pitchford, writing under the pseudonym “BB”. It was made by Anglia Television in 1975.

    Is this a definite answer? Do you remember it too?
    I've tried to google your reply but it doesn't come up with much for the TV show.
    All I seem to remember is that I thought the music was the same as "In loving memory" or come to think of it perhaps "Nosybonk's theme" from Jigsaw which after digging around is a piece of music called "A hippo called Hubert". In my mind the 2 pieces blend into each other!

    Anyway if this is the answer thank you very much, but alas it still isn't ringing any more bells for me.
    However the date may be correct I would have been 4 and so my memory from then not that brilliant.

    I am a bit of a TV theme buff and all I can really add is to say with confidence that the theme to 'In Loving Memory' is definitely the same as the one to 'Baldmoney, Sneezewort...' I liked the series a lot and rceall it as a series of very simple drawn images.

    Thank you very much, this is some very vague memory that I've had all my life but not been able to put anything to.
    Wow I'm so glad that I got the theme music correct, the mind it a very strange thing to hold these imprints.
    Anyway problem solved, thanks to all who tried to help.
    I've got to say I find this web-site fantastic and have become a bit of an addict.

    Does anyone remember a programme called 'Witches Brew' from around 73-74ish? Not sure if it was lunctime or early afternoon but it was on ITV and scared the hell out of me?

    I've seen Witches Brew mentioned on line,but dont remember it myself.

    It was 1972/1973(19 episodes) the part of The Witch was played by Audrey Jeans. The only other person who gets a mention is Peter Goodwright who did 'voices'

    Can you tell us what you remember about it Lilacmoon? (Love the username btw)

    That wasn't lunchtimes, though.

    Lunch was the domain of Rainbow, Pipkins, Paperplay, Handful of Songs, Jamie and Magic Torch etc. on ITV before your Mum watched The Sullivans and the Watch With Mother slot at 1.45 on the Beeb, after Pebble Mill.

    Some of the weirder ones I remember seeing were Moschops (floppy, stop-motion dinos) and definitely Animal Kwackers (Rory, Rory tell us a story, Rory, Rory, tell us how it is!).

    I remember Lets Pretend on at lunchtimes too, there was also a programme with beryl reid and spacecat, also some bloke who read a story sitting by or on a tree stump,
    erm...tickle on the tum.
    Then there was the bbc2 slot around the 2pm mark which showed stuff like Bertha,pigeon street,bod etc.
