Given the success of CITV's Old Skool Weekend I'm really hoping that CBBC will step up to the plate and do one of their own.

Which shows would you like to see on the schedule?

For me:

The Demon Headmaster (I just Googled this and was shocked to find out that it started airing 17 years ago! Seventeen! )
Byker Grove
Get Your Own Back
Wild House
Microsoap
The Queen's Nose
Magic Grandad (if that counts as a CBBC show)
50/50
The Animals of Farthing Wood
Noah's Island
Oakie Doke
Pig Heart Boy
The Poddington Peas
Aquila
Big Kids

All of the above, but I'd add in Dark Season, Moondial and The Cuckoo Sister.

The above link shows the little girl in the programme, Dinah Glass, is now all grown up, trying to get back into acting!

If they showed Dark Season then how about Century Falls, the seriesRussell T Davies wrote after that

BTW I presume this list is restricted to programmes made for the BBC??

The Ghost Hunter, definitely. I'll think up a better list when I have a little more time later.

After taking part in the CITV thread similar to this, this has made me realise I was more of a Childrens BBC Fan not only do I think the programmes were more style, I found the idents on the otherside, and possibly the idents a bit cheapo looking, and the idents had to show characters from there children programmes, morealess saying we need u to watch these programs

Apart from the programmes which have already been mentioned I will include:

Pigeon Street
Bertha
Fingerbobs
Bits and Pieces
The Racoons
Pareall 9
Saturday Superstore
Other Saturday morning shows I could mention, but obviously ecause of the length of them, they haven't a hope in hell chane being shown again

The very first Grange Hill series. I loved it, but that makes me really old...
rentaghost and how I would love to watch Pipkins again, that takes me back to preschool, so 1973-4!

Don't know if these fit in with what you are trying to get at here but these haven't been mentioned yet (if its not, maybe imports and not CBBC production - these are what comes to mind when CBBC/BBC kids TV is mentioned to me)

Mysterious Cities of Gold
Willie Fogg
The Box of Delights
Thundercats
Superted
Morph
Ivor The Engine
Bananaman
Pigeon Street
Henry's Cat
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original run)
Gentle Ben
Dogtanian (was this BBC or ITV - can never remember thought BBC because of the "singalong theme tune")
