'Small beer' Blyton banned by BBC
Children's author Enid Blyton was
banned from the BBC for nearly 30 years
because her work was considered "small
beer", archive documents have revealed.
The best-selling writer unsuccessfully
approached the corporation several
times to get her material on the radio.
Executives considered the Famous Five
and Noddy creator "second-rate" and
lacking literary value, according to 18
newly released letters and memos.
She first pitched ideas in 1936 but did
not appear on Woman's Hour until 1963.
