In response to whoever wrote the previous comments, 'dirty old mans dream', it is a kids programme on a kids channel CBBC. It is not meant to be entertainment for adults, the programme is set in caveman times hence the names Trunk and Cave girl and Big Sis is what Cave girl calls her older sister (I call my older brother Big bro). The programme is good light hearted kids TV. My only reservation is perhaps the programme is slightly to short, only being about 15 minutes long, although its difficult to get children to sit down for much longer, a problem easily solved by showing two episodes back to back, like with Tracey Beaker. Compared to some of the rubbish on kids TV these days this is by far one of the best programmes on, and it is of some educational value- learning about stone age practises. Not a classic but descent enough
