I have been watching the Comics Britannia season on BBC4 with great enjoyment; hearing about The Dandy and The Beano, as broons-2007.jpgwell as Bunty and Judy, brought back many happy memories of my childhood, and of course the Book God’s devotion to Dan Dare knows no bounds. I caught up with one of the best programmes earlier this evening, celebrating 70 years of The Broons; seeing lots of well-known Scottish celebrities confessing they still get the annual (you know who you are!) was great, and the evident joy of Muriel Gray who was featured on one of the comic strips was fantastic. Of course as soon as the programme was over I visited Amazon to see what’s available. Let’s just say that The Broons Annual for 2007 may be on the Bride’s Christmas wish list this year!
