Tina has just found out that her ridiculously camp husband Raymond, is gay. Her child-minder, Granny Murray, told her one night while she was fucked out of her head on special brew behind the bus garage. At first, Tina didn't believe Granny Murray - she and Raymond have a daughter together, after all, but Granny Murray showed her a photo of Raymond cottaging in the park and Tina's world shattered.
I really do hope that the show establishes a lifelong interest in science for my children and encourages them to ask why and how things work. I look forward to continuing to find myself humming the theme tune at work and hearing my children saying Balabalaboomboom! for the foreseeable future at least.
I don't mean to brag, but I watch a lot of Cbeebies. Before you have children your views on what's appropriate for them in many instances is wildly different from the reality of when they're there. I'm not talking about violence or content, though I'm sure when my kid is older than 17 months I will be; I'm talking about consumption.
