Grange Hill R.I.P.

Sepia? It wasn't that long ago!

They were the schoolmates we all grew up with: Tucker, Roe-land, Trisha Yates, Justine, Zamo… and the teachers we could all bitch about together: Mrs. McClusky, Mr. Bronson.

It was the show that divided the nation: you were either too posh to be allowed to watch it. Or you were so common you wished your mum and dad had been able to send you to such a nice school.

It was Grange Hill. And now it’s over. Finished. No more. Dead as a dodo.

Kaput.

The BBC has decided that after 30 years, they need to move on to reflect society back to British children. New programming is to include dramas such as ‘Lose Weight Fatty’, ‘Daddy and the Funny Tickle’ and ‘Why Are You Stabbing Me When I Just Asked You To Stop Throwing Chips at My Bird’. We actually made those up and if the BBC wants them they will have to pay top dollar. 

There are a few more episodes of GH left to run and then that’s your lot. As long as they don’t get rid of Cheggars Plays Pop, we can handle it.

So, why was it we loved Grange Hill?

  3. There was never anyone very sexy in it though, was there? I was rampant at that age and I can’t remember fancying anyone. Especially Todd Carty, before anyone says anything.

  5. Another example of the BBC losing the plot.

  7. What was the drugs song? Didn’t it get to number one. i remember as a kid it being really embarrassing. I remember thinking that drugs must be cool if the anti-drugs thing was SO UNcool.
