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 »

Wonderful
14 April 2004 | by RussianPantyHogSee all my reviews

Blue Peter is FAR more than a tv show. It's a national institution. I loved watching it as a child, as did my parents in the 1960s and my own kids now!! Has ANY other show been running for 46 years? I doubt it. We all have our favourite presenter, mine has to be "Uncle John" Noakes, with Val Singleton and her "sticky-back plastic" running a close second. We all knew she was talking about sellotape, but the BBC wasn't allowed to "endorse" :) it's been imitated by ITV many times (Magpie etc etc) but never equalled. What's YOUR favourite episode? Mine has to be the one where they had a baby elephant in the studio which refused to leave and then urinated all over the place. One of the main presenters in the 1980s was Caron Keating who died today, aged only 41. She was a lovely girl who still had so much to achieve. RIP.
