Best of all the childrens tv programs is Ballymory. Its got everything class struggle,addiction, the grey area between right and wrong, joy, loss, unrequieted love, sorrow and ultimately redemption.

Balamory - and PC Plum and Miss Whooley probably get it on in the back of Edie McCreedy's van when filming is over.

Thomas the Tank Engine broke new ground in 1984, merely 3 episodes into the first season they tackled the taboo subject of homosexuality in early 80's Britain. The following video undoubtedly grabbed the UK by the neck, dragging it into the reality of 80's Britain.

UK title: "The Sad Story Of Henry"
Us Title"Come Out Henry"






A harrowing and brave script to air in 1984. The true meaning of Henry being walled into the tunnel, only to be released when he felt better(conformed). It is a well known fact that this episode was aired the same day Freddie Mercury contracted HIV.

Directed By: David Mitton

Thomas the tank engine only makes sense that if in the real world there has been a horrific cargo train crash caused by the failings of managment (fat controller) and Sordor is the hallucenation of a critcally injured thomas who was the real world driver of the train.

Kinda like the film Jacobs Ladder

Any excuse to bump this brilliant thread.

Unfortunately it's with sad news -

Quote:
The acclaimed actor Michael Angelis, best known for his roles as the narrator of children's favourite Thomas & Friends and in the classic TV series Boys from the Blackstuff, GBH and The Liver Birds, has died.

Angelis' agent said the screen veteran died suddenly at his home in the UK on Saturday.

Angelis narrated Thomas & Friends for 13 series and many audiobooks, taking over from fellow Liverpudlian Ringo Starr in 1991 when the series was called Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.
