TV I watched as a kid in the 80s and 90sby Gwasgray | created - 22 Oct 2015 | updated - 8 months ago | Public
I grew up with 4-channel terrestrial British television. I usually chose CITV on school afternoons over CBBC though I must have watched some CBBC because I remember Andi Peters.
Throughout my primary school years, after school and on weekend mornings (sometimes I'd wake up so early the cartoons hadn't started and the only thing on was "Trans World Sport" or the famous girl & clown test card), I'd usually sit in front of the TV for a couple of hours and watch whatever kids programs were on, even some things that seemed a bit lame (I always thought Power Rangers was dumb and repetitive and me and my friends used to mock it, but I'd still watch it anyway). I was never a Blue Peter child.
