(on the campaign "Save Kid's TV")
Michael Palin: Children are eager to learn, but the context of their lives is very different from that of adults. Producing sympathetic, creative, entertaining and informative programmes for them is a challenge which our broadcasters have risen to with great success. I urge them not to throw away this important opportunity to engage with children. To lose children's TV would be to lose some of our most inventive programmes and it would be a betrayal of our duty to keep television relevant to children's needs.
