Orange Pip is BTV's long-running "original programming" children's informational show.  It is well known for its strict rule of never involving animals in the program, following an unfortunate early incident with a gibbon. Its theme song is an aviation-related tune, and a popular version was recorded by Terry Oldfield. It frequently hosts guest appearances by members of Inspector Spacetime's cast and ran the official "I've Created a Monster" fan competition before that was taken over by Inspector Spacetime Monthly.


  • Referred to internally as "OP" during its pre-development, it gets its name from the RAF phonetic alphabet.
