This stop-motion series by Ivor Wood aired in the lunchtime slot on BBC1 and was narrated by Patrica Hayes.
Although Gran enjoyed knitting as much as the next grandmother (she covered her entire house in a giant scarf to stay warm), she also enjoyed hang-gliding, riding a motorbike and digging for dinosaur bones.
She was often joined in her mini-adventures by her ginger-haired grandson, Jim, who would exclaim at the end of some episodes, “Haven’t I got the most surprising Gran?”
