Pipkins was on ITV, made by ATV. Pipkins was replaced by Let's Pretend, made by Central. Interestingly Let's Pretend replaced Pipkins at the beginning of January 1982, the time when Central replaced ATV as the ITV Midlands franchise holder.
    You're right, I bu**gered that up. I knew it was 'Let's Pretend' I just got them mixed up.

    Does anyone remember the name of a supernatural drama that was aired in the early 90's on ITV? (I think). It was a 2 or 3 part drama which was basically the same story as 'The Witches of Eastwick'.

    How about Gran (think it was called), also in the pre-school lunch time slot. Theme tune used to go "Hello Gran how are you, how'd you feel today, I just popped by to see if I could be of help in any way, I always like to come and spend my time with you, you always seem to think of something great to do, you really are the most, I think that I can boast, you really are the most amazing gran" . Never remembered alongside favourites such as Bagpuss, Bod, The Flumps etc

    I remember Gran, I think it was made by Ivor Wood productions, who made Postman Pat, The Herbs & some other stop motion animations.

    The last time I remember it airing was in 1987-8 as part of the pre-school CBBC. My sister used to get my Mum to video Play School (& later Play bus/days) & whatever other programmes were in the strand. We often use to record the odd show 5 to 11 as well.

    One of our favourite ones was when Gran held a tea party for a chimp, which became known in our house as the "Monkey Burp" episode. In the end I think my Mum made us record something over.

    I can't actually remember much about the programme itself, other than it had 'gran' and her grandson and they were Postman Pat-like characters. I was probably too busy singing the theme tune to watch the show lol

    the programmes i remember that leave people with blank faces as they have no recognition of them are

    Tomfoolery -a 1970`s hanna and barbera type cartoon that was just made out of silly little bits it was on sunday midmornings before `the big match` with brian moore

    another american cartoon but i cant remember ithis ones name but it about a group of kids who have a beach buggy and they drive it under something like a sun lamp and it shrinks them so they can go on adventures

    a series that used to be on kids tv itv in the mid `70`s no idea what it was called ,for some reason i think it was on a friday evening, it was set in a guest house that was in the middle of nowhere bank robbers or something go there and take all the guests hostage to escape the police
    one bit that sticks in my mind is someone calling the police by tapping on the little black buttons that the hand set sat ( what are they called?) on rather then using the dial to be quiet

    and another mid `70`s kids show think this one was called the georgian house it was a museum that reverted to the time the house was built and the people who lived in it im sure someone from the present time gets trapped in the past
