The Children come first

The Children come first

The first programme to come from the new television studios at Lime Grove in the summer of 1950 was a Children’s Hour. This was a sign that for the children nothing but the best that Television can offer will do.

the announcer – Jennifer Gay, who is 14, introduces the Children’s Programme. 

the clown – The famous Keele entertains the children at Christmas. 

the film star – John Mills brings his own children to the Studio. 

the radio uncle – The beloved Derek McCulloch (Uncle Mac), reads to children from the Dominions gathered in the Studio.
