    This LP cover from 1975 includes a variety of themes from popular children’s television shows from the British Broadcasting Corporation. The BBC Records Discography Blog says:

    Both sides of RESL 13 turned up on ‘Music From BBC Children’s Programmes’ (REH 214) in 1975. The six episodes of Moonbase 3 were only broadcast once on BBC at a time when most children were already abed, and it wasn’t aimed at them anyway, so this appears to be a fairly lazy bit of re-licensing by BBC Records. It doesn’t sit alongside Playschool and Chigley that comfortably. If you want copies of these tracks though it’s a better deal than buying the single. And, just maybe, the label were throwing a bone to DW fans who missed out on the small run of the single.

    The album cover was really just a collection of TV show logos which serve as an eclectic sample of the logo design trends from 1975. The jumble is kept together by Embrionic Triline with hyperextended lines that form a border.
