Happy Birthday John Craven's Newsround

There aren't many people who haven't heard of John Craven. There are still a lot of us left who remember his revolutionary Newsround on BBC1. It was great for catching up on the news as a child, he wasn't a pompous public school boy talking down to us, he spoke to us on a level without being boring. You can still see Newsround on BBC1, although John Craven no longer presents it, he retired from the programme in 1989. He is now a presenter on Countryfile.

I can't believe it has being going for 40 years, here's the link for the full story on the good old B.B.C. website:

And some You-tube footage;

Can you believe Curry's gave away free CB radios when CB became legal in 1981?
