Trivia

In the "Geordie Racer" series, real-life husband and wife Kevin Whately and Madelaine Newton play a married couple, namely Spuggy's parents. This casting decision was entirely unintentional; Newton was originally cast at an audition session, and the following day the production team independently contacted Whately, who had previous experience in schools television, unaware of the relationship between the two.

Top to bottom, up and over.
12 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Look and Read' was an educational programme shown in the 'Schools' time on BBC2. If you were one of the kids lucky enough to catch it, it meant that you were missing Maths or some other dull lesson just to watch TV. Which, when you're seven or so, is just about the best school can get! Wordy was the host of the show, a floating torso (early blue screen - no expense spared) painted orange and decorated with egg cartons (well, maybe some expense spared!), and he'd link educational snippets and cartoon sing-a-longs (good old Derek Griffiths!) with the featured episode of the drama serial. It's almost possible to tell a kid's school year from the particular serial they watched - whether it be about racing pigeons, peregrine falcons, fairgrounds or such like. At the end of the film, you'd get to read the highlights of the story on screen, and then Magic Pencil would show you how to write your letters. For anyone wondering, 'top to bottom, up and over' is how you'd write an h!
