I have just heard on the radio today that the cult children’s show Grange Hill is to be axed by the BBC.
Anne Gilchrist, controller of CBBC, just said on the radio that Grange Hill was being axed because it longer related to children today … And shite like Newsround, Blue Peter, etc, does!?
This is very sad as most people from the United Kingdom who will read this will have grown up watching Grange Hill at some point in their life, during the 1980s it was one of the most popular children’s shows on television and did some gripping storylines including sex and drug addiction.
The only good thing is that they are bringing out Grange Hill on DVD.
