It is more than 20 years old, but has become a very modern hit on the internet.

At a time when Wogan was a chat show fixture on BBC television, a bus full of wide-eyed youngsters travelled from their school in the Black Country to the broadcaster's theatre at Shepherd's Bush Green, London, for an experience of a lifetime.

The children from Woodfield Infant and Junior schools in Penn, Wolverhampton, had already appeared on the front page of the Express & Star.

Their claim to fame was the fact they were among nine sets of twins who were pupils at the old redbrick schools in Woodfield Avenue.

Now their moment in the spotlight has resurfaced on the internet site YouTube and is already attracting hundreds of hits.

The twins' appearance on Wogan, which was broadcast live, was first screened on a Monday evening in March 1987.

"There must be something in the water in Wolverhampton," quipped Wogan as he introduced the live studio audience to the 18 smiling young faces.
