During one of those nostalgic trips
down memory lane that I often find myself having (quite
disturbing really, considering i'm only 17!), I
remembered this TV show that would frequently have me and
my friends in hysterics every week. Then it's series
would end, and there would be some tragic piece of TV
rubbish on for 6 weeks or more, and then to our great
joy, Round the Bend would return to the screen!
Although I did not know it at the time, the show was allegedly cancelled by Mary Whitehouse, a rather mad old woman hell bent on cleaning up television and destroying anything worth watching in the process.
Once I'd remembered Round the Bend, I then set to the web to try and find out some information about it, but numerous web searches returned nothing interesting, but a large amount of stuff about Bend, in Oregon, U.S.A.!
A couple of months later, I discovered the wonders of Usenet Newsgroups, and posted the following message on uk.media.tv.childrens, hoping to get a reply:
I'm new to this
group but I wonder if you could help me.
For a change, people decided to respond to one of my posts :-), and I found out some things about Round the Bend that I'd either forgotten or never knew in the first place, and thats when I decided to make this site, so that other people who also remember Round the Bend, can finally find out about the show.
