Ratty and Hammy

If you have enough years behind you to remember the Woodentops, Bill and Ben and Captain Pugwash then you will undoubtedly remember Tales of the Riverbank. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgUeWec-Aew a nostalgic view of the English Countryside (and some) with Johnny Morris – It’s difficult to believe this kept me cross legged in front of the TV every day.

On the last few tours we’ve encountered Water Voles feeding in among the reeds around the pools – just made me think of Tales from the Riverbank.

    Your post took me back. I remember those programmes well, especially Tales From The Riverbank. It was nostalgic and sentimental, but it wasn’t purporting to be science, and for a kid in an urban environment, as I was, it was magical. Thanks for the memories, and great pic as always.

      Thanks Malcolm. Yes, it was just a great programme for us urban kids. Sometimes I see things or little things happen and I’m just transported back to my youth. It must be (yet another) sign of me getting old!
