Parody on a double take. In the 1960’s the BBC hosted a Children’s TV series caled Playschool. One of their ‘antics’ was to chose a window ‘Which one will it be?’ …round, square or arched….through which to show a themed film clip.
Play School is a long-running British children’s television series produced by the BBC which ran from 21 April 1964 until 11 March 1988. Devised by Nicko Spalding, it accidentally became the first ever programme to be shown on the fledgling BBC2 after a power cut halted the opening night’s programming (and later it became the first children’s programme to be shown in colour by that channel). Play School originally appeared on weekdays at 11am on BBC2 and later acquired a mid-afternoon BBC1 repeat. It was superseded in October 1988 by Playbus, which soon became Playdays.
When the BBC scrapped the afternoon edition of Play School in 1985, to make way for a variety of children’s programmes in the afternoon, a Sunday morning compilation was launched called Hallo Again!.
There were several opening sequences for Play School, the first one A house with a door, windows 1 2 3 4, ready to knock? Turn the lock – It’s Play School This changed in the early seventies to A house with a door, 1 2 3 4, ready to play, what’s the day? It’s… In this version blinds opened on the windows as the numbers were said.
Out went the blinds at towards the end of the 1970s and the word windows was added before 1 2 3 4 The final opening sequence involved a multicoloured house with no apparent windows. This was used from 1983 until the end of the programme. This saw the most radical revamp of the programme overall (not just in the opening titles). The opening legend then became Get ready – to play. What’s the day? It’s…
