Grange Hill’s 40th anniversary year got off to a great start when Radio Times announced their 50 Greatest Children’s TV Shows of all time. A panel consisting of 30 luminaries from television, including David Walliams, Floella Benjamin and Russell T. Davis took time to consider what made up the very best children’s television. Each member of the panel chose their five favourite kids TV programmes, leaving Radio Times to compile the results, with Grange Hill coming in 2nd place!
You can read the full run down here (Grange Hill appears on page 5), and as Grange Hill comes second only to the legendary Blue Peter, fans need not be too disappointed with the result! What’s more, it means that Tucker Jenkins gets to appear on the cover of Radio Times!
