Evacuation BBC1/CBBC 4th September

Post by Warden_D »

What ho chaps

Quick bit of advanced TV news for those of us who live in sunny Britain. CBBC are to show a new tv programme called Evacuation starting Monday 4th September 2006, BBC1/CBBC.

Former Blue Peter presenter Matt Baker hosts a series in which 12 city children experience life in World War Two at Castle Farm – a typical war-time farm house run by Mr and Mrs Rivett.

Watch out for the good looking Home Guardsman, he looks rather like Harry W. (I wonder why?)

What ho gang

Just checked the Radio Times and young Harry is featured on the programme 12th September 17:00-17:25

The Radio Times says "Reality TV show in which children experience the life of a wartime evacuee. The kids receive a visit from Private Pickard, a member of the Home Guard. If the evacuees were to see a spy, it's vital they're able to memorise and pass on detailed information about the enemy's position to the Home Guard. Private Pickard decides to test these skills in a game of Chinese whispers and teaches the evacuees how to scare the enemy using broom handles instead of bayonets."

Now how do I set the VCR?

Great show that was, I am also enjoying the new one on tv now :D

I think all modern children have to be evacuated for a few weeks if we want to save civilisation :lol:
