    What a shame, but a good innings none the less.

    Isn’t Johnny Ball still going?

    Oh bloody hell.

    Isn’t Johnny Ball still going?

    Oh god, don’t tempt fate. He was a childhood hero of mine.

    It’s a bit of a curse really, isn’t it. All the people we grew up loving, actors, rock stars, TV presenters, they’re all a generation older than us. So we get to watch them all check out one by one.

    Isn’t it funny what Google throws up when you start to reminisce

    Ah, the good old days!

    I loved Brian. His songs in trumpchigleygreen were sublime.

    Fresh fish! fine fresh fish!
    Herring, plaice, mackerel turbot,
    Whiting, cod, halibut, dab,
    Prawn, crabs, crayfish and lobster,
    In green parsley and set upon a slab.
    Fresh fish, fine fresh fish.
    Fishing song:
    Sitting by a stream,
    Fishing.
    By a Summer stream,
    Fishing.
    In still deep waters,
    Where lazy fish gleam.
    Fishing in the sun.

    RIP fella.

    We all loved Brian Cant, very sad news but what joy to give to the world

    Yes Johnny Ball is still about, they should dig out think of a number, it would still be ace. Floella Benjamin did a cbeebies bedtime story and she has not changed one bit: she’s now a life peer for libdems in the HoL, baroness

    Aw man.

    Play Away was absolute class, Jonathan Cohen grinning away, they were like the Bonzos for little kids.

    He was brilliant, wasn’t he?

    Ah, dear me. He’s just gone through the heaven-shaped window. Great man.

    First John Noakes and now this.

    There’s only Derek Griffiths left.

    I remember him reading this:
    Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus
    Who doesnt care for travelling from Glasgow to Luss
    Pop goes her engine crunch go her gears
    Her passengers are sitting with their fingers in their ears
    Pimpernel Petroleum loves to make a fuss
    Because Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus.

    Her driver Percy Poddle is a kind wee man
    Who talks to her politely as often as he can
    He’s careful with her steering wheel and gentle with her brake
    And whispers to her Pimpernel be good for goodness sake
    But Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus
    Who doesnt care for travelling from Glasgow to Luss
    Pop goes her engine crunch go her gears
    Her passengers are sitting with their fingers in their ears
    Pimpernel Petroleum loves to make a fuss
    Because Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus.

    Pimpernel’s conductress, Miss Fanny Freda Frisk
    Is exceedingly efficient but very bright and brisk
    She said we’ve had enough of this sentimental stuff
    What Pimpernel is needing is a driver who is rough
    But driver Percy Poddle is a kind wee man
    Who talks to her politely as often as he can
    He’s careful with her steering wheel and gentle with her brake
    And whispers to her Pimpernel be good for goodness sake
    But Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus
    Who doesnt care for travelling from Glasgow to Luss
    Pop goes her engine crunch go her gears
    Her passengers are sitting with their fingers in their ears
    Pimpernel Petroleum loves to make a fuss
    Because Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus.

    One morning at the corner Pimpernel got stuck
    Perhaps it was on purpose perhaps it was bad luck
    Sat across the roadway wheels upon the grass
    Lots of cars were coming but not a thing could pass
    Pimpernel’s conductress, Miss Fanny Freda Frisk
    Is exceedingly efficient but very bright and brisk
    She said we’ve had enough of this sentimental stuff
    What Pimpernel is needing is a driver who is rough
    But driver Percy Poddle is a kind wee man
    Who talks to her politely as often as he can
    He’s careful with her steering wheel and gentle with her brake
    And whispers to her Pimpernel be good for goodness sake
    But Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus
    Who doesnt care for travelling from Glasgow to Luss
    Pop goes her engine crunch go her gears
    Her passengers are sitting with their fingers in their ears
    Pimpernel Petroleum loves to make a fuss
    Because Pimpernel Petroleum is a bold bad bus.

    RIP. Good memories back in the day when I was too young to snigger at his name.
