Bananas was reminded of a time by some older apes when the trades union conference, liberal,labour and conservative parties would remove all childrens programmes from the bbc and the other lot with adverts.
Today kids tv runs all day and with the closure of bbc three (my blog) they now stretch to 14 hours. That’s a long way from the two hours or so a weekday of stuff.
I mention this as the mumsnet brigade (my blog) can’t seem to turn off tv’s or computers and that’s not there fault because there ‘special’ being mumsnet types. It shall be interesting to see how it affects the zoo attendance.
Somehow i do not remember being asked if fourteen hours of kids tv on the bbc was a good idea although i cannot detect homosexual teletubie’s* for an example of my non existent skills in this area and so perhaps it is best that i was not asked. – Ivan Payne can though and i suppose if that is good for him then its good for mumsnet too.
Mind you some older apes here really liked the party political conferences back then with the singing, angry people and unstaged management which can be found on the parliament channel today but be the total opposite of what they once where whensongs like this are never now sang.
I assume turning off televisions without a remote controller back then was a bloody business.
