Why Did the Chicken?



Mark Evans


BBC1, 6 April 1994 to 8 June 1995 (20 episodes in 2 series)


Kids show based on farm animals. Kids won eggs rather than points and the show ended with a rather silly egg hunt, notable because the clock was a giant decending hen above the nest where the kids put their eggs, and they could "boost up their bantam" (i.e. earn some extra time) by answering questions correctly. We bet he said "start the cluck!" as well.


The second series began exactly one year after the first: at 3.55 pm on 6 April 1995.
