NZ Screen History - Playschool

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:30 pm on 5 August 2021

In our Screen History segment today, we're talking about beloved show Playschool, which ran from 1972 until 1990.

Its recurring characters were Big Ted, Little Ted, Jemima, Humpty and Manu, who were joined by a host of presenters over the years.

Joining Jesse to talk about their time as presenters are Jacqui Dean - now a National MP and Pauline Durning, who presented the show in three stints.

Rawiri Paratene also shares his memories with us in a series of recorded recollections.
