Three decades of Blue Peter annuals

Memories were flooding back to me as I browsed these long forgotten Blue Peter Annuals ranging from 1965 to 1981. Some of the covers are shocking – what were the BBC thinking? John Noakes and Peter Duncan falling over and getting hurt. Lizzie Dripping (aka Tina Heath) becoming a host. Lesley Judd’s boots and flowing skirts. Peter Purves’ solid reliability.  Petra and Shep. The garden. The black and white one with the elephant. Valerie Singleton’s absolutely crystal clear voice and young Sarah Greene.

    I’m looking for a Blue Peter Annual around c. 1977 – 1982, it has an item about a Bangladeshi boy who visited a school in the UK, it has two girls dressed in orange saris. Do you have this?
