Children’s BBC – Carrot Cake


From early 1990: Andy Crane and Edd host Children’s BBC from the Broom Cupboard. They link out of a live Blue Peter, who have made carrot cake during the show. Andy, without warning, challenges BP to supply a sample of the said cake before the two minute link is over and this duly happens as Yvette Fielding charges upstairs and amazingly makes it with seconds to go! The clip includes the following trail for Fast Forward and the BBC1 symbol into Neighbours – which Andy lets Yvette do!

    What was the character that was a really geeky spotty nerd type character who would always go “I knowwwwww”!!!? A trainspotter or something? I could have sworn he was on Children’s BBC but can’t remember much beyond that!

    Ooh look!! Yvette Fielding before she started swearing on live TV, and started kicking things to make out there was a ghost somewhere nearby.

    @jonnyhaw They didn’t cut out the feed at that point, they just all had to go to bed. Bedtime is earlier in Northern Ireland.

    @jonnyhaw They went to their local news programme, Inside Ulster, which for whatever reason was on before the Six O’Clock News, rather than after it.

    @kezadrone That’s how ITV used cue dots, but the BBC doesn’t have adverts. They used to use cue dots in the top left so that the presentation dept could cue the next programme. This being on the right hand side is unusual.

    @fraserkatie It’s the old advert coming up thing. It was whit and black lines at an angle that would speed up at the adverts were about to start and then vanish when they did. Sometimes it would come in too early and go again. They don’t have it now something to do with digital not needing it. Here it looks white but chances are the picture is blured out as an mpeg and vhs taped recording from the TV broadcast.

    @northernanorak It looks over exposed here. But it’s black and white stripes in a box moving and the get faster as the adverts are about to come up come up. But sometimes it would be activated at the wrong time . The don’t have it now. Digital stuff may not require it.

    Children’s BBC – Carrot Cake is 20 years old so it’s classic.
