I've been reading a book about British Cult Children's TV shows and it got me thinking about Adventure Island here in Australia. I used to watch this regularly, I think, I mean, I was a very tender age when it was on, and to be honest I can really only remember a few bits and pieces from the show - Nancy Cato, or more likely Sue Donovan, reading the story, the village with the Pandas, Flowerpot and Clown. Oh, and of course Miser Meanie . It's not a lot of a memory really, but I know that my little-tacker self was quite besotted with this show (and Andy Pandy, but that's another post).
Anyways, best I can do at the moment is offer a few pictures. I do have a record album and book of the show which I'll endeavour to dig up and scan. If I get really modern and find some spare time I'll see if I can convert some the album to mp3 for some "sharing" as the kids call it. Then we can be modern together.
Oh, and there's a new version of Adventure Island which holds no appeal at all for me. Proceed with caution.
