Children’s Entertainment

Children's Hour was the main children's radio program for two generations in Britain, beginning in the first year of the BBC's existence and broadcast early every evening. There were widespread protests when Children's Hour was brought to an end in 1964.

Blue Peter started transmitting in 1958 on the BBC. The most long-lasting children's programme on British television, it was named after the 'blue peter' signal flag, blue with a white square at its centre, which a ship flies when it is about to leave port.
