CITV Old Skool Weekend[edit]

  • ... that the CITV Old Skool Weekend aimed to "show the kids what their parents watched when they were very young"?

Symbol question.svg This makes me feel old ... I watched all this stuff first time round! Ideally I would like to see citations for these two bits: In 2003, CITV celebrated their 20th anniversary... and The majority of the shows were also made available to view on the catch-up service ITV Player for a limited time. I had a very quick look for reliable sources for the former, but couldn't see anything immediately. (I'm not sure if linking to one of the YouTube videos of the 2003 programming would be acceptable.) Other than this, everything looks fine: date, length, range, quality and formatting of citations, and prose. Hassocks5489 (Floreat Hova!) 13:51, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, me as well. I watched the 90s stuff either first time or in repeats in the late 90s, but I introduced my 12 year old sister to some of the things - she became addicted to Fun House and Finders Keepers! Anyway I think linking to a YouTube video should be alright, its seems to be the only solution, but for the itv Player point, I believe it is in one of the sources I provided, so I will reference that section. Thanks. 03md 00:34, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Now fully verified following the recent additions (hook is referenced to online source). Having reviewed the guidance on references to YouTube, I am happy with the use of it in ref [5] to confirm the existence of the programme. (Knightmare and Raggy Dolls were my favourites out of what was shown over that weekend; I unsuccessfully applied to go on Knightmare in 1992!)
