In the 70s, I spent many contented holidays with cousins in England. They had young children so I have happy memories of pantomimes and Dr. Who and The Wombles. I was delighted when Jurgen Gothe played the Wombles' signature tune on his CBC radio show Farrago.
I am somewhat amazed that a family of fat, furry creatures who collect litter was so popular with children. I wonder if it would be nowadays. However, as an adult, Uncle Bulgaria still delights me. And the show’s message of picking up litter certainly fits with modern-day concerns about the environment.
