Those Radio Times Advent Calendar: Blue Peter

As a child growing up in the 70s I was all to familiar with John Noakes assignments on Blue Peter and this particular moment originally broadcast on December 7, 1970 was especially memorable.

If someone needed to demonstrate fee-fall parachuting with the RAF or have a go at bobsleighing, John was usually on hand with an even more daring camera crew to keep younger viewers on the edge of their seats with real-life escapades.

On this occasion John climbed 300 feet up Fulham power station to do a paint job and without a safety harness! There must have been an easier way to make a living?
