Children's TV was much better back then
18 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"Just William" is set during the 1930s, about a naughty school boy, William, with his own gang. The annoying Bonnie Langford played the annoying, lisping, spoiled brat Elizabeth Violet Rose Bott who always wanted to kiss William (yuk!), and threatening to "Scwme and scwme and scwme" and hold her breath until she turned blue if she didn't get her own way. The great Diana Dors played her stuck-up mother Mrs Bott. This is a great children's series, and I remember looking forward to it every Sunday afternoon on ITV. The BBC remade it several years ago but it didn't recapture the magic of of the '76 version. It would be great to see this version released on video or DVD.
