Grange Hill ends after 30 years – let’s reminisce with a classic clip

The BBC has announced that classic kids show Grange Hill is to end after 30 years. What? You thought it had already ended?

I’m guessing few of us have watched it of late, but all UK-based readers will have spent their formative years in the company of Tucker Jenkins (who even got his own spin-off show), Zammo, Pogo Patterson, Gripper Stebson or Ro-land, not to mention teachers like Mr Bronson and Bullet Baxter.

But what clip should we feature? How about a kid accidentally dropping acid? Or Zammo’s addiction? Actually no, we’ll go for something a bit more tame – some classic clips from the very first episodes. Enjoy…
