The story of children’s TV told in an exhibition

Date Posted: 13/08/2015

The Story of Children’s Television from 1946 to Today, a retrospective exhibition currently on show at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry, is set to move to Portsmouth this autumn.

The exhibition traces the history of children’s television, bringing together seven decades of iconic objects, memorabilia, merchandise, clips and images. 

The exhibition, which is packed full of interactive elements for big kids and small, also showcases original props and characters, from Mummy Woodentop to The Wombles, Morph, Gordon the Gopher, Rastamouse and the singing veggies from Mr Bloom’s Nursery.

You can still catch the exhibition at the Herbert until 13th September, but it will open at Portsmouth City Museum on 17th October and run till the 28th February.

The Story of Children’s Television is currently advertising for a further venue to take it on after Portsmouth.
