Whatever happened to School TV?

I remember those good ol' days. Sciving off school so I could sit at home, under my duvet on the sofa (Oh the Luxury) and watch TV all day.School TV, on from about 10 - 2 on CBBC, was really all that I was allowed to watch, it being educational and all. I didn't really mind it, I kinda enjoyed it.

But now, when I'm on my Gap Year, and have all the time in the world to sit and watch telly on the sofa, there's no School TV to be found. What happened to it? Where are Zapp and the Wordmaster? Where is that programme about Rivers that seemed to be on all the time? Where's the 70s telly that was still being broadcast in the early 00s? Now there is solid Kids TV on CBBC. Some of it worse than the School TV ever was.
Yes, I know I'm nearly 19, and shouldn't be watching Kids Telly, but that's not the point.

Where's the Magic Pencil when you need him?


  1. Zapp And the Wordmaster! Do you remember when the teachers said it might be scary?

    And The magic pencil! I miss School TV aswell. Remember Spy Watch and through the dragons eye! Kids these have no TV to educate them!!!

  2. Spy Watch, That was GREAT!
