I have not done one of these in a while, but I see it as an opportunity for some nostalgia. We only had 3 channels in the 70s in the UK.

|No||Nomination||My Reasons for the Nomination|
|1||Blue Peter||This British show gave me a window on the world in the days before the internet. They would have all sorts of activities in the studio, but also go off around the world. The presenters would do some pretty daring things such as sky-diving. My era was in the 1970s with the classic line-up of John Noakes, Peters Purves and Leslie Judd.|
|2||The Banana Splits||This was a strange and wonderful show from the USA featuring a band of strange creatures who would present a series of cartoons in between their mad antics.|
|3||The Tomorrow People||There were a load of Sci-fi and fantasy shows on back then. This one featured a generation of kids who had evolved to have special powers. I think it was fairly low budget, but it could freak out kids back then.|
