Trivia

The show has two time-capsules still to be opened: one was interred at BBC TV Centre in 2000 for excavation in 2029 and contains the then-current 29th Blue Peter Book and team details, instructions to make a George the tortoise toy, VHS and DigiBeta programme highlights, a 40th anniversary gold medallion and set of badges, a CD from Konnie Huq, Simon Thomas' old mobile phone, a ring from Katy Hill's Mongolian trip, and a Geordie phrasebook from Matt Baker). In February 2012 this (along with the bust of Petra and Italian sunken garden) was moved to MediaCityUK in Salford, Manchester when production relocated there from London. The second was placed at the Greenwich Millennium Dome site on 11th June 1998, for recovery in 2050. Contents include a Blue Peter badge and series history, plus viewers suggestions such as Teletubby dolls, a France '98 football and an insulin pen. See more »

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.
