Puppets Andy, Teddy and Looby Loo first appeared on BBC TV on this day 11th July 1950. The episodes were repeated for more than 25 years until the film wore out. I remember my brother hiding behind the sofa when Looby Lou came on lol.
"The book that made me fall in love with books... "The Enchanted wood" by Enid Blyton I was gripped from the moment my mum began to read it to my brother and I and I'm now enjoying reading it to my own two for the first time. I love watching their faces as they hear about the adventures of all the different characters and I truly hope that it sparks a great love for books in them too" - Elaine Parry
