Whoever makes children's TV these days are idiots. I cannot see any self respecting child wanting to sit around watching some strange cheap-imitation of the teletubbies with strange puppets running around jangling bells and singing about flowers. In the good old nineties, we had old ladies showing us how soap was made whilst their dogs ran around looking cute. Once, she went to a china factory. It was wild. No, children's TV these days is simply not what it used to be. As a result, my children will watch Shakespeare, with occasional Dickens films. I may even find vintage 'Playdays'.
