All aboard!!!! "All aboard the SkylArk,
............all aboard the SkylArk..."
All aboard!!!!

Who doesn't remember those immortal words shouted by Noah in a Little Gem of a kiddie's program at tea time, nor forget that the animals didn't come on two by two, but one by two, for each animal had two heads. What a concept!

If you remember, Noah was "Nutty", Niggly Nelly always knitted them out of problems whilst whenever the animals said something, their other head always corrected, agreed or disagreed with itself as you can see from the images below.


Narrated by Richard Briers and Peter Hawkins, Noah and Nelly in the SkylArk dates from the 1970's and episodes ran for just over four minutes. This program created by Grange Calvaley. Truly, this was a bright, fun program for children of all ages.

We present the theme tune, a list of characters, rogues gallery, fifteen episode guides, a short synopsis of each and credits, all which are presented below.
