Storyline

The shows were broadcast live in front of an audience largely of children, originally at the King's Theatre on Hammersmith Road until 1963, then at the BBC Television Theatre (now the Shepherds Bush Empire). The format of the programme included competitive games for teams of children, a music spot, a comedy double act, and a finale in which the cast performed a short comic play, adapting popular songs of the day and incorporating them into the action.

Crackerjack memories
22 August 2009 | by lobstahSee all my reviews

I was a contestant on Crackerjack in the early 70's when Michael Aspel was the presenter. Peter Glaze was still there although he was pretty old by then. It was made on a Thursday at Shepherds Bush studios at about six thirty but we were all made to shout, "it's Friday, it's five to five, and it's CRACKERJACK" The guests on the show in the next dressing room to us were a very young Status Quo, who sang their new hit, "ice in the sun" but backstage in the dressing room were helping us to unscrew the bulbs round the makeup mirrors and toss them out the window onto our schoolmates who were in a queue waiting up to get in to the studio below..!! I went away with the coveted Crackerjack pencil which by the way are incredibly rare today as unlike the Blue Peter Badge,were only given to contestants on the show. Of course, I can't find it now but ...I will eventually.. The weirdest thing of all was watching myself on telly at home the next day.
