This BBC TV children’s series was Blue Peter but with logic puzzles and quizzes, designed to teach kids maths and to try and tease their brain a little with a mix of comedy and questions.

The show starred Janet Ellis and mime artist Adrian Hedley with Clive Dunn as The Mad Inventor and Sylvester McCoy and David Rappaport as the O-men.

Also featured was a character called Noseybonk – a weird mime artist with a huge nose and sinister grin – that looked almost like something from A Clockwork Orange.
