For Summer 1986, the decision was taken to move Children’s BBC to the mornings. The traditional BBC1 afternoon schedule was abandoned (though BBC2 ran dubbed drama Heidi and Hanna-Barbera’s The Roman Holidays with standard out-of-vision, announcer-led presentation). The summer morning line up of programmes including repeats of Record Breakers, the acquired drama Silas, a summer version of Newsround presented from alongside the Radio 1 Roadshow, and the long running Play School.

The phenomenon of corn – or crop – circles was at its peak in the summer of 1990, with Newsround reporting on various scientific experiments to prove or disprove their origin. Coincidentally, the mysterious Quack Circles started to appear in the Broom Cupboard one afternoon. These were simply yellow paper circles with quack written on them – and they appeared in greater number with each successive link. Andi eventually realised that Edd was behind them – but not before they had appeared on his face and even on the BBC1 symbol before Neighbours!

But First This also discovered a band from the North East of England called A Tribe Of Toffs. demo tape, sent to Children’s BBC, included a song called John Kettley (Is A Weatherman) and this was featured on air, accompanied by a specially-shot video made by the production team.

Anyone in Canada find anything similar here? Bed, Bath & Beyond sells Casabella but not this broom. O’Cedar is supposed to be the same as Vileda but they don’t seem to carry a dust mop like this. Help!

If our main pick is unavailable or you want a broom that comes with a dustpan, we recommend the $14 Libman Large Precision Angle Broom with Dustpan. It’s not as effective at sweeping up dust as the Casabella, it’s heavier and its bristles are a bit too stiff, and it doesn’t have our pick’s comfy grip. However, among the brooms we tested the Libman was the second best at sweeping , was well-liked by our panel, and comes with an okay dustpan.

Greater emphasis was being placed on the use of trailers throughout the television industry at this time. A notable exercise in the run up to the launch of the 1988 season of But First This was the suffixing of all trails with a further generic mini-trail for But First This, using part of the opening titles and theme music. This caused confusion on more than one occasion, with Simon being put back on air too early before the second part of trailer had finished!

One of the last acts of the former Communities Secretary before the election was to publish Nationally Described Space Standards which set minimum specifications for new homes throughout England. It was in effect a ban on broom cupboards. The smallest flat for which local authorities should give planning permission is set at 39 square metres (363 square feet) if the property has a bath, or 37 square metres (345 square feet) if it has a shower. These measurements are derived from standards originally proposed for London by Mayor Ken Livingstone, then adopted by Boris Johnson.

The $25 Casabella Height Adjustable Butterfly Floor Duster also has a great frame, but its height-adjustable pole is heavy, awkward, and unnecessary. Its cover didn’t hold up well in the wash, either; the fuzzy white edges shed a lot, and it wasn’t as good at picking up dust after being washed.

The $18 O-Cedar Power Corner Large Angle Broom is similar to the Angler Angle Broom, but has a wider head and stiffer bristles. Its angle is great at getting into corners and under furniture, but its stiffer bristles are worse at sweeping up fine debris, and they fling dust.

Our pick is wide angle, but most brooms are of a similar size so if you’re having issues with larger areas you might want to look into something like the dual-action dustmop we recommend above. Hope this helps!

This allows dirt to wick up to the backing. This unique yarn construction eliminates crushing and matting down. Performance is greatly enhanced.
