Emu TV – 1989
Running for just one series of 22 episodes in 1989, Emu TV was the last ‘live action’ television series to feature the famous bird, alongside it’s creator Rod Hull, that had enthralled British audiences since 1972.
Ten years later Rod Hull would tragically fall off a roof adjusting a TV aerial, leading to his death.
Emu TV followed the same format as the earlier BBC series Emu’s Broadcasting Company, in which Emu operated his own TV station and broadcast clips of telly programmes which he would produce and broadcast.
