Daily Mirror - - TODAY'S TV -

I have to agree with ex-Blue Peter pre­sen­ters Peter Purves and Janet El­lis how sad it is that the pro­gramme is in de­cline (Mir­ror, July 6).

In my day, you’d run home from school, do your home­work quickly while the pro­grammes for younger chil­dren were on, then at 4.15pm it was a fight be­tween BBC1 and ITV as to which had the best shows to watch. Blue Peter, Mag­pie and Grange Hill were all great favourites, and then at 5.45pm it was all over when the news came on.

Happy days, but now the main chan­nels don’t cater for kids at all, which is dis­grace­ful. Even Satur­day morn­ings are full of cook­ery shows. Yvonne Webb, Birm­ing­ham

PRE­SEN­TERS John Noakes, Va­lerie Sin­gle­ton and Peter Purves
