Bleep and Booster was a ‘mini-show’ contained within Blue Peter during the 60s.
All episodes were made in black & white, and the episodes have never been repeated on British television (so they won’t have a great deal of resonance for anyone born after BBC1 switched to colour – except through their otherwise baffling inclusion in the old Blue Peter annuals).
A Bleep and Booster video was released a few years back in the UK, but it didn’t sell very well.
The characters of robot-like alien Bleep (from the planet Miron) and human boy Booster were created by William “Tim” Timym, the Austrian sculptor who later created the statue of Blue Peter dog, Petra.
Timym also created Bengo.
