Description

I do want to learn and I try quite hard but that's mostly because, although I enjoy going there, I'm not very good at it.

Marmalade Atkins is a rough and tumble tomboy whose only friend is a nodding dog (popular in the back of cars at the time) who also talks to her. After a successful pilot in the anthology series Theatre Box, the first series, Educating Marmalade, took a sideswipe at 'mealy-mouthed do-gooding' social workers who try to make Marmalade conform by sending her to a variety of schools. Educating Marmalade was one of my favourite children's programmes that aired back in 1981 - I remember getting a Marmalade Atkins Annual. She embraced the role of Marmalade wholeheartedly, and possibly felt something of an affinity with the character. Much video style special effects and bad Chroma key ensues along with a barrage of pantomime like performances, setting the anarchic house style for the series that would follow.Although he has received plaudits from adult critics for his script work on such TV and film projects as To Serve Them All My Days and Bridget Jones's Diary, Andrew Davies is best known to British youngsters as the creator of Miss Marmalade Atkins. Coleman continued to act in films throughout the 1990s with her last major film being Jasmin Dizdar's Beautiful People (1999), set in London in 1993, at the time of the Yugoslav Wars, playing the role of Portia Thornton.

For the role, she had to choose a stuffed toy for Emma to carry; she named it "Haggis" and still had it when interviewed in 1990. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.At 15, feeling that her upbringing had been too liberal, since her parents "didn't believe in restraint", Coleman enrolled at Dartington Hall School in Devon. Davies revels in lampooning the education system - from the yobbish Cringe Hill (a spoof of Grange Hill (BBC, 1978-)) to public schools all too ready to take a bribe from Marmalade's wide-boy father. Marmalade remained a total menace and every week she would have a different job such as a chef, spy, air stewardess and so on. And there is no indication that she has learned her lesson, or anything for that matter in any lessons, as she seldom attends them.
