Anne Wood and Andrew Davenport have produced a number of great programmes for children including, most famously, the Teletubbies back in 1997.

I 'got' them instantly - some of it is really good stuff, like the sequence that approaches Zbig Rybczynski's Tango, with the various Teletubbies repeating their actions and just missing each other - but there were various people who didn't: 'Why don't they speak properly?' 'Why repeat the films?' etc etc.

Now, they've come up with In the Night Garden. Because it's just on CBeebies (the BBC's channel for young children) rather than BBC1, it's not created such a fuss.

But have a watch - 6:30 pm, CBeebies - and try work out what on earth they were on...
