    Have you seen the new one? I watched the first new episode on iplayer last night. 11 minutes of little pink space mice running about and charming the music notes off the trees - bliss. Made me all smiley.
    i'd like one for my birthday :)

    I had forgotten about iplayer!!

    I'll be able to catch up on Friday-my next day off.

    Thank you for the reminder, ES. [​IMG]

    I used to watch it a life time ago on the 5.45pm slot on BBC. Also remember watching ;Magic Roundabout' too at that time,

    the lifetime ago bit has just shrunk :D
  4. I knew about it but stressed in case they did the same thing with it as they did with Thomas The Tank Engine and Fireman Sam. Did they?

    I was amused to find out that something as innocent as the Clangers were censored by the BBC, in July 1969. The episode due to be shown on Sunday, 20th July, which involved a spaceship crashing on the Moon, was pulled.

    I'm looking forward to this as I have never seen them in colour before.

    Has The Soup Dragon been persuaded to return? Last I heard she was doing alright for herself on the Dance music scene.

    You can buy toy ones which make the Clanger sound when you press its paw. My 4 year old has one. We have the old Clangers on DVD! Which she loves, so I was expecting her not to like the new one with its changes. But she loves it!

    Sensibly, for once, they haven't ruined it (unlike Thunderbirds).

    They made Clangers on Blue Peter - no knitting involved - old sock. I have mine somewhere in the loft. If I find it I'll post a pic. HOWEVER, I suspect there's a bee's nest in the loft so I might have to wait till November.
