This Annual was found by Anthony Sargeant in among a group of books that he bought at auction in order to donate them to an OXFAM bookshop. The surprising thing is that starting in Black and White the BBC only ever made 26 episodes but they kept re-showing them for over 25 years. It was possible to do this because as one cohort of young children reached school age, the next were being born and about to ‘Watch with Mother’ until they too went to school.
