Blue Peter or Magpie?

Blue Peter is best - That should, of course, be better as it is not possible to be best when there are only two choices.

Are you a Blue Peter person or a Magpie person? If you are one of these you already understand the question. If I need to explain that these were TV programmes on at the same time and I am asking which did you watch then you probably will not have watched either to be able to answer anyway. I was a Blue Peter person - 'this is one I made earlier' - but still remember the Magpie theme song. One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl and four for a boy. Five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told. Maaagpiie, Maaagpiie. So of which were you an avid watcher?

Not only were we younger but I think life was simpler in those days. No computer games or mobile phones. I think Blue Peter is pretty awful nowadays as well. Mind you, I don't like the fact that it is necessary for all presenters to have a regional accent now anyway.

I used to watch both and how true that the magpie song is unforgettable, as soon as I saw it written in your post I could here the final 'maaaaagpie'. Also blue peter, the dogs, the garden the christmas candle holder, who knew coat hangers could be so versatile. Also everyone knows God made the world with 2 yoghurt posts and a washing up bottle, I guess you need to have watched blue peter to understand that one. Great memories of 'get down Shep', again you needed to have watched it to understand.

John Noakes was brilliantlly awful. Peter Purves must have cringed to have to work with him and Valerie Singleton was so prim and proper she must have found him very hard to work with.
