  • G'day from an expat

    Hi all

    Just found here by chance, looking up a childhood memory. What a great find! I'm a UK child of the 60's and 70's but moved to Australia 25 years ago.

    The problem living here is that most of my friends grew up here, so have a different set of childhood memories. I'm already enjoying reading the forums, which are bringing me back some great memories

    Does it count as reliving my childhood if I've never grown up?

          Welcome from an Essex Boy living Down Under. I only moved here 10 years ago though, but do understand the cultural differences growing up.

          Hence why I bought my 9 month old Son the Bagpuss and Mr Benn DVDs to watch when he's older, along with my Pingu and Trap Door ones I already had.

              When I first moved here I was pleasantly surprised by how many old UK shows we had on daytime TV here. they even had the Tom Baker Dr Whos on before the show returned with the new series'.

                Aussie shows were very popular here years ago, the gritty "SPYFORCE" was aired around the regions late nights, quite a nasty little series, violent sometimes, And channel 4 when it first launched had "Norman gunston" a really crazy guy who had his own demons in real life, best known for his attempted celeb interviews and obscure comedy.
