Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Hi, I'd like to know when Blue Peter ran their design a train competition (It coincided with the electrification of the ECML [East Coast Mainline], if I'm recalling correctly). Ideally you'd provide the key dates of the competition (start date, entries closed date and winners announced date), although if that's difficult then just the month(s) and year of the competition would suffice.
Based on the assumptions that within your organisation you'll have a database or other list of all Blue Peter competitions with dates and that it contains the competition I'm interested in then please provide this instead. Ensuring that it contains the following details and is preferably in an easily machine parseable format (e.g. CSV).
* title - Title of competition or some other short and simple identifier
* outline - Brief outline of what had to be done for the competition
* start - Date the competition was introduced to the audience
* closing - Last date you would accept entries
* winners - Date winners were announced
