    Up, because although I can't help, this deserves a wider audience.
     
  2. Thanks Tafkam. I am really drawing a blank with this one. Have tried BBC again, ebay, youtube, other schools in my catchment area...Can't believe the most exciting programme is missing.

    Can anyone suggest anywhere else? My class love look and read and it would be great to do one that matches our theme.

    sidney sides are you serious? I'd love all of them, though Through the Dragon's Eye and Sky hunter were my special favourites. Did anyone else notice how the villain in Skyhunter (can't remember his name) has now turned up as magic grandad?!
     
  11. OMG. I watched Dark Towers and Geordie Racer at school (On the road, on the street, hear the sound of pounding feet, Geordie Racer, Geordie Racer!!)

    We have Legend of the Lost Keys and Spywatch on video at my current school. Can't believe that Legend of the Lost Keys is less than 10 years old - it looks sooooooooo dated when my Y5 watched it in Golden Time last year. They liked it though!
