The BBC have just announced the very sad news that John Noakes of Blue Peter fame passed away at the age of 83. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this tragic time.
John Noakes was famous for all the stunts he took part in going up tall towers and such. All pretty dangerous and probably wouldn't be allowed under the modern health & safety regimes. But entertain us kids he did.
Then there was Shep. Heh.
Rest in Peace mate and thanks for all the fun.
