Whatever happened to children’s television…

Fascinating piece in the Telegraph today about the decline of quality and quantity of home grown children’s television. (Full story here)

Growing up in the town of Ragdoll Productions (Tellietubbies, Brum, Rosie & Jim) it was easy to assume that there is a huge industry developing quality content in the UK, but sadly this is not the case.

Now in my thirties I can look back on a wide range of exciting, high quality, and involving shows that sparkled during my childhood. The list includes; Tripds, Running Scared, Box of Delights, Pressgang…. where are their equals today?
