  • True, but considering the fact that Channel 4 are showing a tribute to ONJ, I find it ironic that something that Raymond Briggs has been associated with has been shown on the same channel almost every year since it started in 1982. Also ironic is someone connected with a Snowman happening during a heatwave...

  • Funnily enough, earlier on in the week after ONJ's death was announced, I was deliberately looking at the Sky EPG, typing in the word "Grease", expecting one of the channels to show the film as a result, and all I saw was the scheduled showing of the second Grease film from 1982 which was...

    replied to Milk for Schools
    I assumed that the local dairies used to produce small glass milk bottles specially for schools, such as the Coop? Caretaker used to leave milk crate near entrance of the classroom and used to collect it at the end.

    replied to 1983
    It was the first year I have actual memories of - birthdays, Christmas etc. I started Infant School in September 1983 after being in the nursery department the previous year.

    It was also the same year that my old constituency got a Conservative MP (and kept him until 1992).

  • RIP Dame Olivia Newton-John

    Dame Olivia Newton-John, the Cambridge, England-born Australian singer and actress has died from cancer at the age of 73 - a career lasting half a century, and as an actress and a singer, she was perfect to star in musical films.

  • It's such a sad ending to who was the last surviving OTB cast member - amazing how Doris Hare had outlived Michael Robbins when she was 25 years older than him....

    started a topic Welcome Back Kotter

    Welcome Back Kotter

    I don't remember this American sitcom myself, but I am certain that those from the United States would obviously have a better memory of it being on their TV screens - I believe that it ran over there in around 1975-1979-ish and lasted for over 90 episodes - one of the British tabloids mentioned it...
