Finbar Thu 22-May-03 21:18:09

tamum - thanks for sharing reminisces about marine boy....it was a long time ago - but aren't all the best romances!!!!

XAusted Thu 22-May-03 21:27:43

I had forgotten about Bleep and Booster. I used to get a Blue Peter book every Xmas.

Finbar Fri 23-May-03 12:24:03

Xausted...as you also got a Blue Peter book each Christmas....do you remember the one with the cat door stop made by Valerie Singleton?

Also , does anyone remember the Blue Peter 'Child' they followed - I think his name was Christopher ?
(i may be pushing against an open door here?!!!)

tamum Fri 23-May-03 12:36:17

Ooh Finbar, I think we must be twins separated at birth . The Blue Peter baby was called Daniel. I remember John Noakes and Peter Purves bathed him, and they had to apologise in the next program because there were loads of complaints as they had washed both his eyes with the same piece of cotton wool.
It's a wonder I can remember anything about my life at the moment, I've used up so many neurons on Blue Peter.
