Forgot the Lampies!! LOVED that, and hands down, the best theme tune of any tv-show ever.

Superted
Bananaman
Willo the Wisp
The Perishers
Danger Mouse
Champion the Wonderhorse
Battle of the Planets
Godzilla
Captain Caveman
You and Me
Johnny Briggs
The Box of Delights
Fingermouse

Plus all the ones everyone else has mentioned!

And yes Stig Dogtanian was BBC.
Dangermouse was ITV

All the others you've mentioned I would love to see again, especially Bananaman, Willo The Wisp (voiced by the wonderful Kenneth Williams), You & Me and Johnny Briggs

Dangermouse was ITV, Cosgrove Hall shows always were, but a few years back Dangermouse did start appearing as little 15mins filler on BBC2 daytimes during the school holidays not sure why but there it is.

Plus how about Mysterious City's of Gold unless someone else has already suggested.

The Children of Green Knowe also if I recall it was about a boy who befriended two ghost children from the 1600's. One of those shows you vaguely remember from childhood, happy days

They did have their own programme where Gordon lived in Phillip's house. It had a singalog theme tune as well.

IThe Adventure Game (remember The Vortex)...
Doog yrev

Blood and Honey with Tony Robinson
Oddysseus (Tony R again).
I wonder if it was those programme which demonstrated his interest in history that helped him to get the Time Team gig??


A lot of people have mentioned different eras of Blue Peter so perhaps it might be an idea to have a whole series about that show with each edition dedicated to a different decade

Not possible in a weekend, but Id like to see them repeat every single Ministry of Mayhem. In order. Cutting out all the bits which don`t feature Holly Wiloughby.

Noggin the Nog

and if his reputation hasn't been destroyed by all the urban myths etc.

Captain Pugwash

also The Clangers

Though in any case not sure any of them count as CBBC as such as they all predate the concept of CBBC.

Byker Grove will not get repeated. Ant and Dec bought up the rights to the show and have it locked away forever cause they are so embarrassed of it.

Julia Jekyll & Harriet Hyde
Potsworth and Co?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnigh...The_Dream_Zone

Robinson Crusoe cartoon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robinson_Sucroe

The show about a kids cricket team was probably Sloggers, written by Sid "Voice of Darts" Waddell who also wrote Jossy's Giants about a kid's football team

As for Julia Jeckyll and Harriet Hyde, Olivia Hallinan who played Julia recently starred in Lark Rise To Candleford and the school headmistress was played by Ann Emery who is best known for playing Mrs Meaker in Rentaghost
