Alec Feldman: The Tweenies’ Sinister Undertones

Yes, he’s been watching childrens TV again.

Alec Feldman: The Tweenies’ Sinister Undertones

Alec Feldman recently became a part of a Facebook group dedicated to sharing memes about kids TV shows from the 2000s.

One thing led to another, and before he knew it, he had gone down a YouTube rabbit hole and was watching old episodes of a show called The Tweenies.


For those of you who don’t know, The Tweenies were a set of colourful gigantic people-like things who went to nursery and were told what to do by a clock which had activities instead of numbers on it.

But in the episode Alec watched... the clock BROKE! And this led Alec to make an observation about the sinister undertones of this seemingly innocent TV show.

Hyer's Highlights: The Commonwealth

Benji Hyer responds to listener Matthew about what the Commonwealth means to young people...

Hyer's Highlights: The Commonwealth

The Commonwealth of Nations, formerly known as the British Commonwealth, is an intergovernmental organisation of 53 member-states that are mostly former territories of the British Empire.

Currently, they are competing in the Commonwealth Games on the East Coast of Australia, and that is going ahead without any political commotion.


The problem is that, despite the splendour of the Commonwealth Games, there is not a great deal of demand for the continuation of the Commonwealth.

Recently, reports in India, Nigeria and Jamaica explored what the old fellowship meant to young people from those countries, and it concluded that it meant absolutely nothing. Rather than being a profound union, it is for them an antiqued organisation representing a colonialist era and having zero impact on significant foreign policy.

It may still mean something to Brexiteers, who see the Commonwealth as Britain’s next trading area, however nearly…
