Ask Aspel

Long running and well remembered children’s magazine style show Ask Aspel was hosted by Michael Aspel and offered a rare chance in pre video and dvd dys to see clips from favourite TV shows. Aspel read out letters sent in by the junior viewers at home and also interviewed various TV people, musicians, celebs and the like.

The series had two runs, the first from 1970-1973 and then again from 1976-1981.
