    Re: Local TV Adverts

    When I saw the title of this thread, I was thinking of the Central region back in the 1980s, and when DFS only had stores in Darley Dale near Matlock, and Tamworth Road Measham.

    But I remember some local gems such as Don Amott Caravans ("the price is right and the choice is yours"), accompanied by cartoon lion with crown on. Gullivers' Kingdom, Swithland Motors, leave to Lee Longlands, and others. I used to love Central when it had Birmingham bias.

Barrett's Liquor Mart, yeahhh!' Or how about Brentford Nylons or 'When you walk through the door, your pound's worth more. At Williams, where else?'. Post any that you remember!
    I remember ALL of those!
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw the Williams advert - I think it was with a singer called Pearly Gates - I've been searching for that one. Freddie Barret also used to advertise on the radio, as I recall. See one of his TV ads at the end of this break.

    After some serious searching, I finally managed to find an ad for "Marley Homecare, number one in DIY." which was regional too.

    My uncle grew up on a farm and I'm sure said something about a local channel specifically for farming, could've been cable? And who knows about advertising!

    I've heard there were some companies selling farming supplies that only advertised during programmes on farming.

    I was living in Devon from the mid-70s till I went to Uni in the mid-80s - local adverts were dire, amateur things, mostly about farming and the like...
