I grew up in a large family and all my Aunties and Uncles would buy me videos of the programmes they liked when they were younger and I loved all of them. I remember being completely enthralled by Watch With Mother and the wooden tops were one of the best parts on them. It was always introduced in that same beautiful narrative voice with "There's mummy woodentop and daddy wooden top..." and so on finishing with "and the biggest spotty dog you ever did see!" Like Larry the Lamb and Andy Pandy the joy of this world is it's innocence. To truly enjoy it you must put to the back of your mind any modern cynicism and the ideas we form about how film should look 'real' and look at it the way you would as a small child. It is deeply enjoyable.
