More Powell To You

As a pure celebration of Children's ITV, I'm not sure that the 20th anniversary Birthday Bash can be surpassed. But an earnest documentary with interviews and behind-the-scenes perspectives in addition to clips will of course be hugely welcome.

This tweet (and the tweets following) from Andy Crane is also interesting. It's good to know that ITV appreciates the value of nostalgia, not just weekend-to-weekend ratings grabbing.

Someone may have already posted this, but it seems Knightmare will get a mention in an ITV show celebrating 30 years of CiTV - on over xmas.

I'm trying very hard not to just start squealing like a giddy schoolgirl.

My Sky+ box is going to be busy. I can see at least 18 shows I want to keep.
