26th October 2021: A guide to the terrifically fun BBC school radio series Music Makers which ran from 1975 to 1990, including an overview of every one of the 23 comic, musical plays produced (one of which got performed by Prince William!) with storylines, credits, song lists, and lots of pics of the publications including every pamphlet cover.
Remember the kazoo-playing pop star Kornkrake Katastroffy, the sneaky tricks involved in Pedro's Revenge against the gangster Rocadura, or the tribulations of put-upon Herbert Pringle, The Park Keeper?
Also recently added was a comprehensive guide to the 1988 Music Workshop comic production, Bowater Merryweather and the Chemifizz Catastrophe, about a mild-mannered bottle-corker who gets involved in corporate espionage shenanigans in the fizzy drinks business.
One day I'm hoping to cover all of the school radio music productions in that much depth. One day!
28th August 2021: For this update you will need a notebook, a pencil and a stopwatch, and you must be ready to take readings from the screen. A complete guide to the classic ITV Schools series
Look Around You Experiment has been written and added to the BroadcastForSchools website. It contains an overview of all of the episodes, broadcasts and credits, as well as quotes, memorable moments and theme music. Write that down.
P.S. complete episode lists have been added over the last few weeks for the 1990s Channel 4 series Book Box and all 40+ years of the BBC School Radio series Time to Move, plus presenter and producer details.
