You and Me (TV series)


You and Me (TV series)

You and Me was a BBC television programme for pre-school children in the 1970s to 1990s. The first programme, called "Moving house", was broadcast at 10:45am on January 1974 on BBC1, as part of the schools educational television, and it later moved to BBC2 in September 1983 when BBC1 introduced a daytime schedule. The series' original intention was to teach children safety, reading and basic health and fitness. The show featured a mixture of human actors and puppets. For most of the series, the two puppets in the show were called Cosmo and Dibbs, while in the last two series, two more were added. [http://www.richardcoombs.co.uk/youandme.htm]
