Mysterious Cities of Gold
Willie Fogg

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")
I get the feeling we grew up at around the same time

I'd add Jamie and the Magic Torch, surprised that's not been mentioned but not sure if it was BBC.

Oh and Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors (again not sure BBC.)

To start with yes, but ITV did show it a few years later...edited to fit a timeslot as well. The edited versions were among the first VHS recordings I made.

I think the sequel (The Return of Dogtanian) was ITV, and wasn't as good as the Original (definitely BBC).

I think pretty much everything has been mentioned now!

Battle of the Planets
The Adventure Game (remember The Vortex)...
