Anyone remember those children foundation films, they were a bit like a mix between public information films and cheesy shit drama.

Wacky Races - top-notch.

 

 

I was going to write that Rentaghost's Timothy Claypole always struck me as a wrong 'un then Wiki informs me he died in 1987 - AIDS-related.

Can’t remember for the life of me what it was called and it didn’t last long but set in Glasgow and the lead was a young guy and he went about in a Celtic top and he’d a stooky on his arm Sunday afternoon seems to come to mind? Black hair not unlike Martin Compston in height, hair colour wasn’t him.

There was a program on early/mid eighties and I can’t for the life of me remember what it was called. 
 

Over to you wonderful lot to come up with the name.

 

It was around the time when “gunge” was making its way into kids TV.

 

It was a game show of sorts with several presenters. One of which had crazy long hair and glasses. It was a little bit like “fun house” but if they failed a challenge there were “consequences”!!! 

 

Im sure the kids in the audience joined in with the consequences bit for dramatic effect.

 

Consequences involved getting massively gunged.

 

Thats all I can remember. Hope it jogs a memory or 2?

 

Some others not mentioned.

 

Dungeons and Dragons

Mysterious Cities of Gold

Jonny Briggs

The secret Garden (sacred the shit out of me that one)

Runaway (only vague memory of this one and title might not be Runaway? About a girl who runs away)
