Hello. My sister and I brought our children to your fantastic Children's Television exhibition today and had a great deal of fun. However, we didn't manage to find Pob, who is on your advertising leaflet. We're intrigued - where was he?!

What was your favourite TV show as a child? We were big fans of Morph, of course (it was made in Bristol by the super-talented Aardman team). For your children's TV nostalgia fix this summer, get down to M Shed for this cracking exhibition: http://visitbristol.co.uk/whats-on/the-story-of-childrens-television-from-1946-to-today-at-m-shed-p1983363

We sponsor the M Shed in Bristol, and last night MD Martin took a trip down memory lane as he visited their latest exhibition: The Story of Children's Television from 1946 to Today. The exhibition is full of nostalgic bits and pieces from kids TV shows we loved, like The Wombles, Sooty, Morph and iconic objects like Blue Peter’s original Tracy Island. It's definitely worth the visit, it was lovely to get excited over the different generations of children's television.
