Rod Hull and his Emu presented this kid’s show from Emu’s own studios at EBC1 – the smallest television station in the world.

EBC1 programmes were cheap rip-offs of other shows, such as ‘Dr Emu’ ( with terrifying dustbins in place of Daleks ), ‘Emu Trek: A Space Oddity’, ‘The Emudin Line’, ‘The Searching Beak Of Emu’ (a “documentary” series), ‘Grandstand Of Sport’ and ‘The Eurovision Pong Contest’.

Billy Dainty also appeared in a number of supporting character roles and Barbara New played Betty the Tea Lady.
