    Anyone remember the children's adventure gameshow Raven, which ran from 2002-2010 on CBBC?
    Well, it's finally back; a new series started last week (running daily)!

    Raven is an adventure game show in which contestants (sorry, Warriors) do various challenges, whilst avoiding being caught by the creepy Demons.

    This was my childhood, I feel old ! I can't believe it's been 7 years!
    The rebooted series isn't as good as the original, although the special effects are better!

    You feel old? I worked in CBBC when that show was on air. (Though I never worked on the show itself personally.)

    Nice, do you mind me asking what your job was?
    Also, you might be interested to know that i went on the BBC tour at MediaCityUK a couple of weeks ago.
    (and went in the CBBC corridor)

    CBBC corridor? I thought it was a broom cupboard with a gofer thrown in the corner.

    CBBC has it's own corridor, with studios,store rooms etc. We went past the one where they announce the shows (the "on air" light was on too) and got to peer into the studio where Blue Peter is filmed (unfortunately there was another show's set in there though).

    My humour must have failed you, when I was a kid and Philip Scofield was presenting CBBC on BBC1, he always used say the entire department fit into the broom cupboard he was broadcasting from, the gofer was Gordon, his on screen puppet co-presenter, you'll probably need to be 40+ to have got the reference though.
