Blue Peter is a long-running BBC television program for children that has been airing since October of 1958.
It is named after the blue-and-white flag hoisted by a ship in port when it is ready to sail. The reasoning behind the choice of title is that the program is intended to be a voyage of adventure and discovery for the viewers, constantly covering new topics.
