So the BBC is finally pulling the plug on showing kids programmes on mainstream channels like BBC 1 and if you want to entertain your youngsters you’ll now have to plonk them in front of CBBC or any one of about a hundred US channels.

In the general scheme of things this matters very little. It does however give me a cheesy hook to highlight five great kids programmes that quite frankly are wasted on the little blighters.

These five are all solid gold viewing for adults – some intentionally so, others just because they offer a snapshot of a fascinating period of time.

The number one is a current programme and if you don’t have kids you quite probably know nothing about it.

What would you add to the list?
