Day 13 - Favorite childhood show
Ja zuster, nee zuster ("yes nurse, no nurse") ran from 1966 to 1968 and was an extremely popular children's/family programme written by Annie M.G. Schmidt, with music by Harry Bannink. I remember always watching it together with my mum on Saturday afternoons, and I still have the LPs with the songs and a book containing four of the stories.
Although some of the songs and outside scenes were shot on film, most of the episodes were recorded on Ampex tapes, which due to their expensiveness were used over and over again. Therefore very little has remained of the series, which no doubt has helped it acquire its legendary status.
In the early '90s, I believe, an appeal was made to viewers to check whether they had any recordings of the original series, and a surprising amount of material showed up. Unfortunately, most of it was in very bad condition, as the atrocious quality of this clip demonstrates: ( Collapse )
Another series I loved to bits was Thierry la Fronde. According to Wikipedia it was also broadcast from 1966 to 1968 in the Netherlands. Hmmm, I thought it was a little earlier than Ja zuster, nee zuster. Anyway, I was madly in love with Thierry and oh, how I wanted to be Isabelle!
