Radio Times Reveal Their ‘Top 20 Greatest Children’s TV Shows Of All Time’

A Radio Times poll, voted for by a panel of celebrity experts (who are listed below), has revealed ‘The Top 20 Greatest Children’s TV Shows Of All Time’…

You’ll no doubt be delighted to hear that, out of the 20 shows, a whopping 16 were broadcast in the 1980s, making it by far the most popular decade for children’s TV. This is something that we’re personally not surprised by, knowing how fantastic a decade the 80s was for quality children’s television.

Radio Times is celebrating the results of this poll by publishing four different covers, celebrating the children’s TV shows of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Take a guess as to which cover it was that we were drawn to the most…
