View Full Version : Kenny on Blue Peter

-30th April 2003, 17:36
Anybody seen KingKenny on Blue Peter today? (L Halsteds was on too from what I could see). Did you get a Blue Peter badge then?

It was a good little piece, a good advert for fencing for the young viewers. Hopefully it'll get some people interested in it. In my opinion fencing works well on TV (but as a fencer it's undoubtadly a more enjoyable watch than to a non-fencer).

What did everyone else think of it?

Unfortuantly I missed it. Was it any good?

Good piece of publicity :-)

Well done KingKenny, Laurence and Richard - brave people :)

(thinks that the "haircut fairy" has visited recently too :grin: )

It was good. Nothing that a fencer wouldn't know (hopefully) but a short, pleasent introduction to fencing which will hopefully spur more interest. (and two of the presenters had a bit of a go as well, Simon and the new one- I know she's been there for ages, but I don't happen to watch regularly :) )

They were okay. They'd obviously had some practise in rehersals... would have been more amusing to just stick swords in their hands for the first time on live TV... :)

No, they were rubbish!

They weren't rubbish considering they're not fencers. They were a bit awkard looking, but then, what beginning fencers aren't?

At last my face on the silver screen.:)
I thought they did alright they looked like they were having fun and thatís the main thing.
The other fencer was Richard Kruse.
