  • And then of course we moved on. My parents bought a stereo, Elizabethan was the brand name I think. Two speakers (obviously) with a plastic tinted lid or dust cover. The switches had a kind of faux brushed aluminium finish to them and you could choose between a diamond or a lesser quality stylus depending...

  • Years ago it was considered essential that you turned off and unplugged the the television set during a thunderstorm lest it should blow up.
    I suppose there were some things that the Rediffusion TV repair man couldn't fix

  • My parents had a Fidelity record player, they originally bought it during the sixties and I loved it to bits. There was a grey plastic dial to the front left hand side within the cabinet to select the rpm, the lowest being 16 although I can't ever recall playing a record at that speed. When it was turned...

  • It seems that they don't just come out after dark. I made the mistake of going for a walk in some local woodland with my son yesterday wearing shorts.
    My legs, lower arms and hands are now bedaubed in Calamine Lotion and I've just popped an antihistamine tablet.
    I've had a very itchy night...

  • Terrific....thanks for that!
    Yes I did indeed get several details wrong, including the years. There were three series produced for Thames Television from 1975 - 1978.
    I think my memory must be getting a bit shadowy. I've just ordered the second series DVD (used) from Amazon. It doesn't seem...

    An eerie kid's drama series

    I'm afraid I'm not going to be a great deal of help but here goes.
    There was a series of spooky dramas on the box, must have been around 79/80ish.
    One of the episodes was set in a house in France in which somebody had been killed by a German sniper way back during The Second World war. There...

  • Simon's Records - Oxford Street

    Simon's was a large vaulted brick cellar. You could have easily have walked past the narrow entrance and set of stairs if it wasn't for the large plastic robot figure from a Queen album that stood outside.
    During the 70's you could pick up an album...

  • I think your right, the attention from the media probably has been disproportionate.
    Back in 76 of course there was not only the heatwave but the ongoing lack of rainfall hence, the drought. I have fond memories of that summer, staying in a caravan in Milford on Sea in Hampshire. The trick was...

    What make are your boots tex?..Doc Martens or Solovair?
    As a newcomer to this forum one of my first impressions was that it's not exactly buzzing with activity but perhaps all the better for that.
    Not a big fan of things technical when it comes to video games to say the very least but...

  • [QUOTE=tex;n285553]Three tower fans so ok, keeping the blinds closed helps even if not practical. Thing is we just aint used to nice weather so we moan when it arrives and we moan when it doesn't [/QUO

  • I'm avoiding the direct sun, grabbed a couple of overpriced bags of ice from the local convenience shop, I've usually got a couple of lemons and limes in the fridge too.
    I can remember when I'd make a point of going out in the hot sun, many moons ago I have to say.
