Thirty years ago, CITV was launched on ITV and would change the face of children's television. From Children's Ward to Dangermouse, Art Attack to Knightmare, and not forgetting the best of Saturday morning TV from Number 73 to SMTV Live and Ministry of Mayhem, CITV has been around long enough now to entertain two generations of kids. We'll take the stars of Coronation Street for a trip down memory lane as they remember their time on award winning drama Children's Ward. With contributors from the former stars of CITV including Ant and Dec, Holly Willoughby, Fearne Cotton, Stephen Mulhern, Michael Underwood, Christopher Biggins and Matthew Kelly, the only downside is that it's narrated by Vernon Kay.
