Classic children's show
24 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can't really give a rating for a programme that's ran for 54 years and had over thirty presenters.

For me, the best era was 1999-2004, particularly the early 2000s. Simon, Matt, Konnie and Liz were the ultimate presenting team and we had things like The Quest and the Blue Peter Christmas Show, which were either pantos or spoofs (for example, Christmas at The Club Blue Peter, that one set in the fifties and that one set in the eighties).

It's gone downhill now and I can see the BBC hovering over it with an axe but many children and adults have grown up with Blue Peter and I will always remember it fondly.
