Earlier this year we lost one of the legends of children’s television: Blue Peter’s John Noakes.

This retrospective looks back at some of the greatest moments of his career, one of which is the time he climbed to the top of Nelson’s Column back in 1977 – with no safety equipment, on a ladder that leaned over backwards.

Featuring in this show are also Peter Purves, Lesley Judd, Valerie Singleton, and John’s wife Vicky.

John Noakes: TV Hero is on BBC Two at 17.30.
