'Play School presenters went in front of the camera stoned after smoking "the biggest joint you've ever seen", according to a new BBC documentary.I am lost for words, smoking weed on Play School!
Presenter Johnny Ball told a film crew that two of his co-stars filmed a nativity scene for long-running children's TV series Play School while stoned.
Speaking on a BBC4 documentary, Lights! Camera! Action! Tales of Television Centre, Johnny said: "There was Rick Jones, Lionel Morton and myself. They got stoned on the biggest joint you've ever seen - in the studio.'
The second story is more intriguing to me:
'The programme also lifts the lid on what went on behind the closed doors of the stars' dressing rooms, with former Doctor Who actress Katy Manning, who played Jo Grant, saying: "People were bonking all over the BBC. Everybody was doing it on the premises."'If you don't know who Katy Manning aka Jo Grant is then you obviously didn't watch Doctor Who in the 1970s. Here's a picture or four to bring you up to speed and a link to a previous article of mine.
