Rosie and Jim Rosie and Jim is a 90’s Children’s TV show. The first series of Rosie & Jim was filmed at various locations in the Black Country - perhaps you remember seeing them? 215 programmes have been transmitted, giving twelve years of quality pre-school viewing  from ITV. British Waterways used Rosie & Jim and the Ragdoll to convey their 'Safety near Water' message round the canal network. In 1992 Rosie & Jim was awarded the international TV Ontario Award.     Story  Rosie and Jim are two rag dolls that live on a narrow boat which is from Birmingham (UK), which is called the Ragdoll. There they sit with an accordion on their lap and only come alive when no one is looking, such as Neil, who steers the boat, sings songs and relaxes as the world passes by slowly.   They learn to experience things by following Neil (Tootle) on his adventures and secretly joining in the same thing he does, but end up causing trouble. Still, they never seem to get in trouble, as no one ever seems to see them! Two of the most popular faces in children's television. Rosie and Jim Characters    Rosie     (played by Rebecca Nagan) Rosie is the most mischievous out of the two rag dolls, She likes danger, and is always causing trouble for Neil on his adventures. She even stole his bike and the Hot Air Balloon he was supposed to go in.     Jim     (played by Robin Stevens) Jim is more level headed than Rosie and tries to tell her when things aren't a good idea (which she seems to ignore). Once he got the chance to ride a horse, but once on it he realised that he was facing the wrong way. How silly he looked!   Jim also tries to sing the songs that Neil makes up, but he isn't very good at it.     Neil     (played by Neil Brewer) Neil loves to play the harmonica while floating along the canals and on occasion plays the accordion. He has a knack of making up songs based on his experiences. He's quite adventurous, such as going up in a hot air balloon and taking riding lessons, but Rosie and Jim seem to ruin his experience in some sort of way.   He's not the most fashion conscious person as as he wears a waistcoat, hat, ponytail and life jacket (when on the water). Rosie and Jim also have a pet name for him, 'Tootle'.     Duck He is an ornament that sits on top of the boat, in the shape of a duck. He likes to flap his wings and lets Rosie and Jim know when the coast is clear. Duck also lets them know when there is something for them to see, who then pop up through the hatch to see what he’s found.
