Weird title sequences: Jamie and the Magic Torch

Jamie and the Magic Torch is one of those much-loved programmes that everyone remembers for one thing and one thing only – its title sequence. No? Explain one plot from the show without resorting to Wikipedia or Google.

It was based around the young boy of the title and his torch. When shone on the floor, the torch opened up a hole into a fun dimension called Cuckoo Land, in which his dog Wordsworth who came with him was able to talk. As befitting the time, the title sequence is something of a rock opera and tinged with just a hint of LSD. Enjoy, with the volume cranked all the way up to 11.

    It’s only now that I realise Wordsworth was actually Joe Grundy from The Archers.
    Cosgrove Hall were brilliant. They seem to have completely disappeared from telly, though – shame.

    I loved the show when I was young and watch the intro on YouTube now and again. I’d pay good money to see this or Button Moon remade as a live-action movie.
