  1. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    I'd think Salford for Walker based on the fictional Jack and Annie Walker in Coronation Street. :o

  2. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    I wish I could visit Leeds someday as my Mum's family all came from there; there are streets with the family names in the west, and I think still a farm in the southern part. Anyone want to figure...

    Re: What was cheaper in the 1970s?

    Re: Things that dont happen anymore

    People listening to the same radio station or program happened a lot in the '70s, now it must be pretty rare.

    Re: Radio comedy shows

    I liked anything Peter Cook did on radio, especially his Sven Of Swiss Cottage call-ins. :)

  7. Re: Stupid things you were scared of when you were little.

    That's cute that that would be scary, I remember the scene of him having a spare head in a bucket, but it's good to have a bit of scary. That nose of his was terrifying enough! The only thing I...

    I can relate. Usually there was a group of non-sports boys and tom girls I could fit in with, we played something called square ball which needed four people and new people would come in when one of...

  12. Re: TV Times 1970s ad with a 'Top Cat'-style cat?

    I did see an advert for a TV Times 'On The Buses special edition' on youtube, it was dated 1970, so I suppose it is possible someone may have saved it. Otherwise all I could find were for a couple of...

    Re: Television of Yesteryear.

    The Strange Report has that swingin' sixties aspect to it as well with Anneke Wills (she was in a genuine swingin' sixties film too, The Pleasure Girls, 1965). Apparently they wanted to make a second...
