New album and DVD with all Play School’s celebrity guests to be released

If you loved watching Hamish and Andy try and fix a hole in a bucket, Molly Meldrum and Charlie Pickering deliver nursery rhyme news, story time with Tim Minchin or any of the many other star performances on Play School, you probably don’t want the birthday celebrations to end either.

We loved tuning in each day to see the celebrities in sport, news, music, dance, comedy, musical theatre and more try their hand at presenting the iconic children’s television show to mark its 50th year on Australian television.
