Play Away - Ending Song Theme Song

I just had to put something in the days blog about Brian Cant today, especially after seeing him this morning on BBC Breakfast. Play School, Play Away, Camberwick Green et al, were all part of growing up and part of an amazing BBC for children in the 60's and 70's.

Anyway back to Brian, and it was so sad to see him suffering with Parkinson's Disease and a shadow of his former self. You see for me it's sad as I have a firm memory of those days and at 77, sure he is no longer the vibrant person he was. It's like that too for John Noakes, Peter Purves and John Craven. It's a bugger this getting old lark!

I hope for his sake that Brian can take pleasure from all the young children's lives he has touched over the years and will be able to Hugh (it was never Pugh), Pugh, Barney, Magrew, Cuthbert Dibble and Grub for some years to come...

Priceless stuff eh? Although I do like Iain and Hacker the Dog on CBBC... wonder if the same will be said of them in 40 years time... hope so as they are a real hoot!

More tomorrow...
