Subject: RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'
The timetabling of radio and TV programs was a complex and secret art, especially in Kent. At half term, the BBC would broadcast repeats in successive weeks, so that whenever a school had its half term, they would not miss an episode. Except that Kent, possibly because of hopping or some such local variation, always had its half term in one of the non repeating weeks. What joy when tape recording became possible! Except for the poor teacher who had to ensure all the recording happened. I wonder what happened to our plug in timer.

Kent still runs out of synch with everyone else. Especially with the six term year scheme.
