You can win a water butt in the Lewisham Council competition to celebrate the 7th annual compost awareness week! eAndRecycling/Recycling/Composters/CompostAwarenes sWeek.htm

Silly comment warning:
I think this will be the same as the 6th compost awareness week but just a little more mature.

Tiswas (after it sold out) have a compost corner. And can any of you soft Southerners tell me what Tiswas stood for and who was the first presenter (not Chris Tarant)

Rory McGrath or Sally James or Lenny Henry, if not Bob Carolgees.

Today Is Saturday Watch And Smile.

And I'm not a Southerner soft or hard and growing up in NI never got to see the show as it was never shown there. And still I can work out the answer. Aren;t I clever.

Think it was a Midland thing ( ATV) first of all just like the Auntie Jean Show with the Koalas and Crossroads.Remember them? What were their names, Soft Southerners.

Anyway , compost, its great stuff, especially when you have a wormery, which I can also recommend.

I never saw Tiswas as we weren't allowed to watch ITV in our house. Snobby? Perhaps. I have lived in East Dulwich you know.

The orginal Tiswas was headed by a guy called John Asher (disappeared after a couple of series never to be heard of again). They bought in a lot of ATV Today (local news programme, not that long after Crossroads) including Chris T. Sally James etc came along long after, when it was very much changed and had gone national.

It was revolutionary for kids' programmes, pre-dated the 'oh so nice' Swap Shop that no doubt TJ watched in his Sunday bests, but for some reason never went national early on during its life (1973 if I recall correctly). Before that we had a thing made by Granada called the Mersey Pirate with the guy who ran the mobie (shop) in Brookside, but that was ....

And as for East Dulwich TJ, you seem to know a lot about the Grove Tavern, I bet you are fibbing about being on the wrong side of the tracks and actually are an SE22 inposter

Auntie Jean, the Koalas, my word that was tinger and tucka, now there is a blast from the past, very hard to find any reference on the Web

Willy Wombat was always asleep. Ah, sorry TJ, I knew you were an imposter. Well what a choice, the Plough (or whatever noncy name it is called) and the Harvester. So all this pent up anger against me in my posh estate is due to your insecurities.

BD: If you really want to talk Saturday morning tv let's reminisce about the French Robinson Crusoe they used to show in the holidays in glorious black and white. Quite unsurpassed, even by the Banana Splits, never mind Tiswas and its format aimed at (then uncategorised) ADD-suffering kids. Poor mites, conditioned to believe success in life was a downstairs toilet, Sky television and a regular supply of shake-and-vac. Pre-conditioned to the life of executive linoleum and Daily Express leading articles that is so close to the hearts of those of our own UDB estate.
