Description:
Andrea Arnold OBE (born 5 April 1961) is a filmmaker and former actress from England, who made her feature film directorial debut in 2006 with Red Road.

In addition to these parts, the show had the usual mix of music, competitions and cartoons (such as Roger Ramjet) that was in keeping to the formula of British Saturday morning children's TV of the 1980s.
