If like me you used to love watching Play School when you were but a tot, then it might interest you to know that there are now a couple of books available that go into the history and back story of this iconic kids TV show.
Written by Paul R Jackson, volumes one and two of Here’s A House – A Celebration of Play School, are now available. The first volume covers the genesis of Play School and covers it’s run from the mid Sixties through to the Seventies. Of possibly more interest to regular readers of this site though will be the new second volume, which covers the Eighties and Nineties, and also talks about the other versions of Play School that spun off from the original in different countries.
Each book contains details of major milestones and events for the programme for the relevant decades, and also features entries on each of the many presenters and contributions from the many people who were involved in the creation of this wonderful piece of television history.
