Grange Hill

Welcome back to the podcast celebrating growing up in 1970’s Britain and the central part that TV played in our lives then.

In this episode we are going back to school. Traditionally, schools were shown in a good light on British TV without much in the way of realism. Mallory Towers and Dotheboys Hall were light years away from my school. All this changed in February 1978 when Grange Hill burst onto our screens and change children’s TV for ever. Tucker JenkinsTrisha Yates and Benny Green got into trouble, answered back to their parents and were rude to teachers. We remember the controversy caused by the show and the fact that many children were not allowed to watch it at the time! Groundbreaking drama from the great Phil Redmond.
