Legends of Kids TV

by Garry Vaux

Foreword by Rick Jones
(Fingerbobs, Play School)


Everyone has their own personal legends from their childhood and this unique book celebrates those people who have entertained and educated us during our most formative years through a series of fascinating and revealing interviews, whilst also highlighting a stark and worrying contrast in attitudes towards children’s programming in more recent times.


50 stars, including writers, creators, presenters and performers, covering 4 decades of television history relive their time on the box and the subsequent paths it took them on.
