    Default Last five minutes before the news

    Do you remember this slot?
    Feeling like you've got to watch intently as it was the last kids program of the day and the oldies then took over the telly watching the boring news.

    So what is the definitive list of these programs?

    I'm going to start with:

    Ivor the engine &
    Willow the wisp

    Later there was the 5:35 to 6:00 minute slot, that Neighbours eventually filled.

    I remember shows like Go For It, Charles In Charge & Hospital Watch featuring in it.
