Grange Hill might have been hugely successful on television, but it also had a very successful time in print too! Grange Hill Gold has begun to look at some of these ‘imprints’ as part of our Grange Hill In Print feature. As well as our Golden Wonder Photo Stories gallery, we have also been able to post some of the Grange Hill features from ‘Beeb’ magazine. Published by the BBC as a rival to ITV’s LookIn!, Beeb only lasted for 20 issues, but have a look at some of the magazine’s fantastic GH features in our new Beeb gallery.
Grange Hill Gold’s most visited page is always ‘Where Are They Now?’ with visitors always very keen to find out what their favourite stars of Grange Hill are up to nowadays. We’ve recently updated this page with plenty more familiar faces and will continue to do so in the coming months. You can visit the page here.
UPDATED 28/6/14 Check out further updates for the 1985-1990 yeargroup (including Ziggy, Robbie, Gonch and Trevor).
