From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Blue Peter is a British children's television programme created by John Hunter Blair. The first programme was broadcast on 16 October 1958,[1] and the series still airs as of 2009.[2] It is the longest running children's television programme in the world,[3][4] and also one of the longest running television programmes in the world.[5] Blue Peter airs twice-weekly in the United Kingdom during the CBBC programming block on BBC One, a terrestrial television channel, and is repeated on the CBBC Channel, a digital terrestrial television channel. Blue Peter is produced in a magazine format, often transmitting live, and features a combination of studio presentation, interviews and outside broadcasting items.[1] There have been thirty-four presenters of Blue Peter.[6][7]

The first presenters of Blue Peter were Christopher Trace and Leila Williams. Trace presented for over eight years, and Williams for over three years. When Williams was fired from the show, Trace continued to present the show alone or with one-off presenters until a replacement was found. The role went to Anita West, who presented sixteen editions over a four-month period in 1962—the shortest tenure of any presenter— before leaving due to her imminent divorce, and its perceived inappropriateness for a presenter of a children's programme in this era.[8] Her tenure was so short that no footage from her time on show exists in the BBC Archives,[9] although footage of her audition remains, along with that of Valerie Singleton and other auditionees.[10] It was not until 1998 that West was officially recognised as a former presenter.[11] John Noakes is the longest-serving male presenter, having presented the show for over twelve years, and Konnie Huq is the longest-serving female presenter, with a tenure of over ten years, narrowly beating Valerie Singleton by three months. However, although Singleton left the series full time in 1972 to present the spin-off series Blue Peter Special Assignment, she continued to be an irregular presenter until 1975.[10] The youngest presenter of Blue Peter was Yvette Fielding, who was eighteen when she began presenting,[12] and the oldest was John Noakes, who was forty-four when he left the show.[13] Only one presenter, Peter Duncan, has had two stints of presenting the show, his first being from 1980 to 1984, and his second being from 1985 to 1986.[14]

Many former presenters of Blue Peter have been plagued by scandals which have effectively ended their television careers. A light-hearted documentary produced by North One Television titled The Curse of Blue Peter aired on Five on 1 September 2003,[15] detailing the fates of Blue Peter presenters, and featured interviews with past presenters.[16][17] Christopher Trace cheated on his wife with a nineteen-year-old girl while on location in Norway in 1968. The BBC dropped him from the show, his wife divorced him, and after a short period of reporting on Nationwide, eventually took a job as a taxi driver before declaring himself bankrupt.[10][18] Although she remained with the show for over seven years, Lesley Judd's tenure with the show was often in doubt, particularly in 1975 when her ex-husband threatened to go public with details of their marriage. As a precaution, Sally James was lined up as Judd's replacement, but the scandal did not emerge and Judd remained with the show, but only on short term, three month contracts.[10] Christopher Wenner was dropped from the programme in 1980, according to Biddy Baxter because he was "deeply unpopular with the viewers" and was extremely difficult to work with.[10] Michael Sundin's contract was terminated in 1985 as he was unpopular with viewers.[10] Following his departure, a tabloid newspaper outed Sundin as a homosexual and video emerged of him dancing with male strippers.[18] Romana D'Annunzio was also fired from the show as the production team tired of her refusal to undertake any of the show's more challenging aspects. When she refused to take part in a Hallowe'en "bobbing for apples" game as she didn't want to spoil her make up, the producer's already tested patience evaporated and her contract not renewed.[10] Clips of Peter Duncan appearing in a 1975 pornography movie, The Lifetaker surfaced,[18][19] and John Leslie was arrested in 2002 and 2008 following numerous allegations relating to rape and assault.[20][21] On 18 October 1998, the tabloid newspaper The News of the World reported on its front page that Richard Bacon had taken cocaine.[22] The following day Lorraine Heggessey, then Head of Children's BBC, appeared on BBC One informing viewers that "Richard admits that he has done this and that he very much regrets it. I believe that Richard has not only let himself down ... but he's also let all of you down badly".[23] He was released from his contract immediately.[24] Not all Blue Peter presenters have had poor fates, however: after leaving Blue Peter Tim Vincent presented Short Change and Fully Booked, acted in Children's Ward and Emmerdale, and presented Access Hollywood for NBC in the United States.[25] Katy Hill went on to present Live and Kicking, Top of the Pops and hit40uk, a networked music singles chart for commercial radio.[26] Richard Bacon's career survived his scandal, too, and he has since presented The Big Breakfast, Top of the Pops, and numerous radio shows.[23]

There are also a number of people listed as having presented the programme but who are not officially recognised. Film exists of Sandra Michaels hosting an edition in 1964. Ann Taylor is listed in Richard Marson's book, Blue Peter; Inside the Archives as presenting the show on 17 September 1959. Tony Hart is also credited with presenting Blue Peter for two episodes in November 1959. It has been said by the BBC that Andy Akinwolere will leave in 2010. It has been said he MIGHT be replaced by Sam and Mark making the first ever Blue Peter duo but this will probally not happen as they host TMi on Saturday mornings. Then again, Caroline Flack left the program in the latest series and it is highly unlikley TMi will return next year so is is 50/50 if Sam and Mark joins. Before Gethin Jones joined the team, he had been Santa Claus on the Christmas special.
