Ship’s 60-year voyage
The first episode of Blue Peter was on October 16, 1958 with Christopher Trace and Leila Williams the original two presenters. A host of former favourite presenters will be involved in the hour-long special being screened on CBBC on Tuesday at 5pm. Fan Ed Sheeran is presented with a Gold Blue Peter badge. Usain Bolt, Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-hill, Hugh Jackman and Davian Mccall are a few others who have earned the accolade. Astronaut Tim Peake even took his into space.
