Site news

14th July 2014: Well this site seems to have ground to a halt and the Music Time project never got very far! That is partly because I have been busy doing other things, but mainly because the site is so slow and annoying and often doesn't work at all.

So I am planning to change it to use different software and simplify it a lot, which should make it work properly. Then updates can resume...

17th August 2013: This year's summer holiday project for the website is a complete guide to the junior music teaching series Music Time, which ran for a quarter of a century from 1970 to 1994.

Music Time is notable not only for its deliberately catchy songs, with which viewers could join in while watching or perform in a concert afterwards, but also for the graphics and games encouraging children to compose and play their own music, for its original musicals for schools to perform, and for its animated versions of well-known pieces such as Peter and the Wolf, Coppélia, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.

If all goes to plan this site will soon have a complete guide to every unit, every song and every episode.
