Corners first aired on BBC in the 1980s as a television show for
children. The show was full of music and humor that helped engage the
children throughout the series. Hosts Sophie Aldred (then Diane-Louise
Jordan) and Simon Davies would try to answer educational questions sent
in by viewers for metaphysical, science and general knowledge topics.
Corners also featured an anthropomorphized animal puppet played by Jo
Corner. The puppet helped to engage interaction and to act out the
answers to some viewer submitted questions.
