Was listening to Radio 1 this morning at work, Andi Peters was on the Chris Moyles Show. Andi Peters used to present CBBC in The Broom Cupboard and is surly remembered fondly by anybody who grew up in the 1980s.

During the show (which is currently available on the “Listen Again” service) he talked about cult classic TV shows like Around the World in 80 Days and Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, all favourites of mine when I was about seven. Until today I never knew Mr. Peters was only eighteen years old when the presented the after-school show along with Ed the Duck. Adults and even late teens seem so much older when your very young.

Today’s radio feature got me thinking of classic kids TV shows I used to watch and wondered if they were out on DVD. I already have the excellent Round the Twist (as regular visitors to this site will know) but have been desperate for the hilarious Maid Marian to get a release. Well, after a quick search on Play.com I can now reveal that the best children’s comedy ever, Maid Marian and Her Merry Men will be released on a double disc DVD on 20th March 2006.

The title has now been pre-ordered and I’ll eagerly await the delivery.

All together now…

Marian!
Why don’t you carry on with what you’re doing
Cause there’s always trouble brewing
You’ve got to find a way to make a better day
Oh Marian!

Why don’t you carry on with your merry men
And make heroes out of each of them
You’ve got to find a space to make a better place
Oh Marian, oh Marian

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
