One of the jobs I enjoyed for several years (though many years ago, now) was writing the scripts for the BBC's Disney Time TV shows: celebrity-presented compilations of classic Disney clips that were broadcast over Easter, Christmas and other assorted holiday weekends.

The chief reason I loved doing these – not terribly demanding – programmes was because I'd grown up watching them (and avidly recording them on my little handheld tape recorder!) and now there I was writing them !

Anyway, Disney Time is long gone, but this Easter – in fact, tonight on Radio 2 at 7:00 pm– there's a chance to catch a re-run of Sibley Disney offering entitled...

The title, by the way, comes from an article on the Disney company published in The Wall Street Journal in 1958 where Walt's business philosophy was summarised as: 'Dream, diversify – and never miss an angle'.

After tonight's broadcast, Never Miss An Angle can be caught up with via BBC iPlayer for the next seven days.

Wonderful, Brian! I can hardly wait.

This is better than finding a chocolate Easter bunny in my basket!

I grew up watching those Disney specials too. We should bring them back :-)

Lovely to see one of your programmes - resurrected today. Look forward to hearing it.
