  • I didn't like that as I thought that it wasn't enough privacy. Anyone could use force and catch you doing what one should do provately. A bit ironic considering the urinals in the gents with only one's back to everyone else.

    It reminds me of Roland in Grange Hill being forced out of the...

  • I was going to do the "I remember Him" joke as well... Never mind. He would have loved the irony of being sent to Coventry!

    My late parents had at least three Ifield singles in their collection of 1960s records - the Yodeling Song; I Remember You; and The Wayward Wind (this collection...

  • Do it Herself - Grampian TV series from the mid 1980s

    That 12.30 pm slot between Rainbow and News at One on ITV was so precious - if The Sullivans were not on in that slot (just like in the Central region) various programmes from middle-to-low ranking ITV companies turned up here, Tyne Tees had Play it Again which was Desert Island Discs on the TV with...

  • Gives a different meaning to Going Dutch, methinks? We are not going to get a "50 years of Teach-In" tribute next year. At least the UK was no longer 13th to play since the incident, but we were unlucky to be the only country to get nothing from the televote. Again, I feel sorry about Olly...

  • I would save grease-proof paper for the Food Technology lessons.

    I hated the very little privacy that I had in the toilet cubicles - some doors didn't even close properly, never mind lock, and I caught someone once (one of the youngsters) eyeing up what I was doing in there with very little...

    replied to Sunblest
    I received one of those advertising leaflets from Farmfoods courtesy of the postman (as if he doesn't have enough to deal with delivering letters, cards and parcels), and it mentions that Sunblest bread was 75p and is now 69p!

    I could have sworn that Sunblest went out of business years...

    replied to Northern Soul
    Was April Stevens a Northern Soul act? I have listened to her 1967(?) hit Wanting You on YT - Gem AM used to play it now and again, often on the late Brian Tansley's shows at the weekend. She also sung the Teach Me Tiger song from a few years previously which turned up in a 1997 Whiskas catfood advert....

    I am certain that Victoria Centre does - they did up to the 2000s. I assume that is also why restaurants do that sort of music as well, because they don't have the PRS to deal with....

  • A lot of people seem to put them both in the same boat - I for one, dislike people with Asperger Syndrome being called "autistic". I once compmained to a TV company which made a drama where a character had called some with autism "spastic", which is not only offensive, hence the...

  • I don't really remember them, but I would be surprised that the ASA had allowed something connected to "teachers" and a "blackboard" with drinking alcohol. School "Bells" Whisky, anyone?...

    I was absolutely delighted to see Kyren win on Monday - he comes across as a brilliant and generous sort of chap. I feasted out on a McDonald's takeaway ordered online in the afternoon and evening, watching the final on BBC Two. Best way to spend a May Day Bank Holiday Monday.

    Indeed, I...

  • First semi-finals on Tuesday, in a nutshell:

    Australia - out
    Lithuania - in

    I think that this is the first year since their first year in 2015 (?) that Australia has not made it to the finals. Had they done so, and won, one assumes that the show the following year would...

  • I think that it was because society swept obscure things under the carpet back then - look at how things were seen in which these days we would tackle head on. I am not saying that you are lying, Arran, but I do feel that the 1970s was way too early for a documentary about Asperger Syndrome being shown...

  • The sad irony is that Australia are not in the final on Saturday. However, I thought that Livvy was closer to being a New Zealander rather than an Australian.

  • It's just occoured to me that as the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Sweden, it reminded me that it marks 50 years since Dame Olivia represented the UK - I wonder whether there will be some sort of tribute?

  • It's amazing because Hans Asperger put his name to the condition back in the 1940s, and so why it didn't feature prominently until the early 1990s is anyone's guess....

  • It probably doesn't count but Thames became an independent producer, they were most likely to have a website and email address, but by then they were part of Pearson Television International.

    TVS Television was reused as a company name by a former employee and it exists on the internet...

    Tesco still has familiar tunes belting out just as you are about to put the Kellogg's Corn Flakes in your trolley... Hearing ELO on the tannoy makes me want to take my time around the store - one assumes that is the general idea when in a supermarket, so that one notices other items for sale in order...
