Re-release: The First Episode - In Which Mum Has A Body Transplant

Here is a re-release of our very first episode.  Mum has re-edited it to take out some of the bits that were very of the time (how things can change in just 2 years).  See how far we've come! In this episode Mum talks about a girl with half a brain, and reveals who she wants to donate a body to her, should body transplants ever become possible.  Stacey finds out the nation's thoughts on the most difficult TV quiz, and there's the now infamous biscuit debate where we find out which are Mum's favourite biscuits.  There's Guess Who Isn't Coming to Dinner and Kipper the Wonky Cat makes his debut.

 

Jingles and most of the music are by Stacey and Owen Frost.
