Archivist and author of ‘Here&rsquo;s a House – A Celebration of Play
School’, reports.Here’s a house

Ready to knock
Turn the lock
It’s Play School
 To many aged 40+ those words or variations on them are familiar as the
opening sequence of Play School.  50 years on from the first
transmission, The Children’s Media Foundation is supporting a unique
reunion of over 200 presenters, musicians and production team members,
many of whom dedicated their whole career to Children’s Television, at
Hammersmith’s Riverside Studios, on Saturday 3rd May.  CMF supporters
are invited to purchase tickets, priced &pound;25.

50 years ago the iconic Play School house opened for the first time
when presenters Virginia Stride & Gordon Rollings welcomed young
pre-schoolers to what, over the next 24 years, would be instantly
recognisable to generations of viewers – a clock introducing the story
chair, three windows (Round, Arched & Square) showing films of everyday
life, and Humpty who, with the other toys, sometimes took on a life of
their own, falling over and even speaking to presenters in a stage
whisper!  On the 14th April the first ever edition of Play School was
recorded in Studio 2 at Riverside Studios in London and broadcast on
Tuesday 21st April. In an auspicious turn of events, Play School’s
first broadcast also launched the new BBC 2 channel after the previous
night’s power cut wiped out the official grand opening.

Knowing that children often viewed alone, founding producer Joy Whitby
briefed writers and presenters to forget about the actual size of the
Play School audience and always speak directly as if to one child and
encourage them to take part in dressing up or singing the songs.  The
programme later went international with kits of scripts and windows
films being sent to various overseas broadcasters including ABC in
Australia where it has been transmitted since 1966 - and continues to
this day.  Many presenters are forever associated with the programme
including Brian Cant, Julie Stevens, Carol Chell, Johnny Ball, Derek
Griffiths, Toni Arthur and Floella Benjamin – many of whom will be
attending the event.

Who can forgot the daily rituals – the block calendar, wonderful songs
and finger rhymes, pets day with the noisy K-too, the toys, and of
course the talented and dedicated presenters & musicians?  Many of the
creative team cut their teeth working on the programme and went on to
produce later pre-school programmes including Playdays, Tweenies,
Balamory and many more.

As a mark of respect from the current generation of pre-school stars to
their predecessors, the May 3rd event will be hosted by CBeebies’ Chris
Jarvis (Show Me, Show Me) with a nostalgic look-back at what made Play
School the institution it became – and the fun they had making it
happen!


It’s been a huge pleasure to work with a team of volunteers from the
Play School production team whom the CMF brought together to organise
this event.  If you had any connection at all to the programme, this
will be a nostalgic afternoon with lots of chances to catch up with old
friends.  And if you simply just loved the programme – come along and
let us know!  We hope to see you there!
