Description

Opening credits and introduction to The Romper Room.

One of the earliest children's television programmes produced for a Northern Irish audience, a generation grew up with The Romper Room in the 1960s and 1970s.

The daily show was hosted first by Miss Adrienne and, then, Miss Helen (featured here) and taught children, "Always do what’s right / Never do anything wrong / To be a Romper Room do bee all day long".

At the end of each episode, children would wait expectantly, hoping that Miss would see them through the mirror she held up: "I can see Peter, I can see Rebecca, I can see Joseph..."
