Joining us to celebrate Blue Peter’s 60th Anniversary at the festival will be current Blue Peter editor Ewan Vinnicombe along with legendary presenters Valerie Singleton OBE , Tim Vincent and Peter Duncan!
On the 16th October 2018, Blue Peter – the world’s longest running children’s show - will be celebrating its 60th Birthday. That’s well over 5,000 shows, millions of viewers and hundreds of thousands of badges being awarded. Everyone knows Blue Peter; no British childhood is complete without it.
The most famous moments over 60 years have been watched again and again; Lulu the elephant, lighting the advent crown and Tracy Island to name a few. But what about those long forgotten Blue Peter films and studio items which have become outdated, defunct and no longer relevant? What can they tell us about how British life has changed over the decades?
The Blue Peter team have scoured their archives and handpicked a selection of the most hilarious, charming and nostalgic clips from the last six decades, uncovering the true stories behind Britain today. Covering everything from the first “portable” phones to the "splendid" brand new M4 motorway, electronic pets controlled by repeated clapping to an in-depth demonstration of brand new key card lock technology in hotel rooms - be prepared to witness history like you’ve never seen it before!
