It was a favourite during my childhood and now my toddler’s addicted. It’s ABC’s Playschool and it turns 50 years old in July.
Like any proud parent, the ABC is celebrating with a month of special events. There’s no doubt that the ABC’s iconic TV series for pre-schoolers, Playschool, has been the very best of children’s programming since 1966. So many generations of Australians have loved it as children and, in turn, enjoyed sharing it with their children and even grandchildren.
The ABC are celebrating Play Schools 50th birthday during July with a series of Play School special shows. Keep your eyes open for the documentary, Big Ted’s Excellent Adventure: 50 Years of Play School.
And from 4 July a daily series will start with a special guest host for each show. Look out for Adam Goodes, Annabel Crab & Leigh Sales, Delta Goodrem, Emma Wiggle, Guy Sebastian, Hamish and Andy, Jeremy Fernandez, Tim Minchin, just to name a few.
It will be essential family viewing in this household!
