BBC Culls Grange Hill

grange-hill.jpgTHE BBC is axing children’s TV school drama Grange Hill after 30 years.

CBBC controller Anne Gilchrist tells us: “The lives of children have changed a great deal since Grange Hill began and we owe it to them to reflect this.”

It was once great. Then it became dreadful…

Tucker, Zammo, Gripper, Alan, Stewpot, Jonah, Bullett Baxter, Pogo, Trisha, Benny, Michelle, Roland – RIP. Gone. All gone.

It’s amazing how few characters from 30 years of shcool Anorak can remember.

File under ‘Shameless Nostalgia’. “Fancy yourself as a bit of circus perfomer, Jenkins..?”

Episode 1 – (and, yes, I the Anorak watched it)
