The Oldest Show in the Store

BBC Store opened its digital doors this week and the oldest programme on offer is a children’s favourite...

The site features around 7,000 hours’ worth of content and bosses said they would add about 3,500 more over the next year. BBC Store also includes new programmes soon after they have aired, as well as classic content from the BBC archives.

‘Wolf Hall’, ‘Poldark’ and ‘Fawlty Towers’ are among the programmes available to buy, as well as much of David Attenborough’s back catalogue, the David Frost interviews and ‘The Great British Bake Off’.  But the oldest programme in the collection is children's favourite from the 50's 'Muffin the Mule'

If you want to see stars of the future when they were young, including Michael Crawford, Phil Collins and Keith Chegwin – you can buy DVDs of the Children’s Media Foundation’s own archive (made when it was the Children’s Film Foundation) at the BFI online shop.

The latest release in the series of DVDs is the Sci-fi TV serial ‘Masters of Venus’ available from the BFI from November 28th.
