50th episode: What Was On in 1972?

To mark our fiftieth episode, we travel back 50 years to 1972 to see what we were watching on TV. There are some old favourites like Mary, Mungo and Midge, The Magic RoundaboutBlue Peter and Penelope Pitstop but some forgotten treasures like Hatty Town and Woobinda – Animal Doctor.

Why were Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford in formulaic TV cop shows? And our host Oliver has a bit of difficulty reconciling some of the programme content with 21st century attitudes. Also can you guess which two long running shows started this year?
