Programmes I would suit my kids for evening family viewing

Whenever there's no particular evening plans and if there's bad weather outside, there's always some television programmes parents and their children (aged birth-age to 14) could watch together. Here, I have a list of programmes what I consider suitable for evening family viewing and the ones I used to watch all the time with family on evenings when I was young.
This list is in no particular order. I was going to put the list in a list of most important for family viewing, but I got lazy as I had a lot of programmes to name.

“ Well, any news programme really.
Every child will need to watch the news someday. Otherwise they will miss out on the current events (for instance; if we're at war, it will be reported and everybody needs to know). The news will also give the children a larger chance of growing up with a wide knowledge of politics, economics and other subjects. ” - johnno74
