Absorbing kids program for fertile imaginations
9 April 2020 | by gedhurstSee all my reviews

Throw a boomerang and be amazed (if you throw it right) how long it spirals through the air... almost as if time stands still while you're watching it. And what if there really was a magic boomerang which paused time while it was flying? If you are a kid in the Sixties, that is unbelievably cool: think of all the problems you could solve! (problems are always a big part of the kid world).

This great kid's program came from Australia, so already it was exotic (but familiar) to children in Britain (like grey industrial Manchester, where I watched it), but this twist of a 'magic' boomerang really set it apart.

The key to a child's world of imagination is often slight and inconsequential or even unintelligible to adults. I can't remember much of the episodes, but this idea of a time-stopping boomerang has always stayed with me.
