Monday's Quote of the Day
"What's going down in the hood?" - Tomsk, resurrected for a Wombles viral video.
The Wombles have meandered off the golden common of 1970s children's telly and on to the web with a viral video to challenge how children's TV imports from the US are dominating the box. Only 1% of kids' TV is produced in Britain, says a 90-second clip released by the Producers' Alliance for Cinema and Television (PACT). The script for the Bad Ass Wombles of Central Park is full of "awesomes", "whatevers" "and super sizing". It's no wonder our kids speak a different language, concludes the vintage Wombles narrator Bernard Cribbens, who voices the appeal for government investment.
