An institution
5 April 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

It may be stuffed away on a Freeview channel these days but lets not forget the fact that 'Blue Peter' is an institution of British TV, and an iconic kids show, having been launched way back in 1958.

It deserves all the plaudits, it really does. No other show has really been able to be a voice for young people for as long, and with such respect and honesty.

I think it's a crying shame that it's buried away on one of the Freeview channels rather than on BBC1 where it belongs to be. I hope it continues to at least remain on TV for as long as possible. There surely would be outcry if it wasn't.
