    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    Gordon Honeycombe hardly had any hair and he had success working for ITN and then TV-am - ironic for someone with "comb" in their name.

    Re: Two people

    Two possibilities:

    1) A Bunch of Fives, which was a children's TV drama from ATV - very similar to Grange Hill and it probably influenced it.

    2) An LWT (or perhaps Yorkshire TV) Friday 9.00 pm...
  3. RIP Richard Williams (Roger Rabbit animator)

    Not quite a famous name as such, but the Canadian-born animator Richard Williams who worked on the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died aged 86 in Bristol - ironically enough, a city associated...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    There is no such phrase as "play your cards correctly", is there? - I have always associated that phrase with the game show.

    I think that nearly everything on TV in the 1980s was magical to...

    Richard Whiteley also springs to mind - "one from the top" could have been a reference to his syrup and not the numbers combination; Ernie "you can't see the join" Wise; Bob Monkhouse, etc...

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    No, it's not that one, but I was referring to some on YouTube which could have been former cinema adverts - I think that there were nearly ten clips of them in total.

    Those adverts you mentioned...

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    Yes, that's the one! Thanks David.

    That advert was going in July 1992 around the time my school broke up for the holidays because someone was singing the jingle on the final day of term.

    Re: Older years at Secondary School

    Sounds like you were at a Middle School (9-13 age group) before you joined there.

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    Old adverts on the TV are just like looking at old adverts in newspapers and magazines at around the same time - they provide a time capsule of what life was back then, especially if it was for a...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    I don't know about Tarby, but Lennie Bennett (with his Kevin Keagan perm if you watch old episodes of Punchlines) and Russ Abbot also springs to mind. And of course, Wogan was the king of them all. ...

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    I have always liked watching old ad breaks as they give a "there and then" perspective of life at times which meant that they couldn't be seen a year later. I used to hate it when people used to...

    Re: Childhood books

    Amazing that programmes like Words and Pictures were almost like "product placement" for children's books - I know that Pat Hutchins, Shirley Huighes and David McKee's books used to feature on there...

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    I think we need to distinguish adverts from PIFs even though they were scheduled in the same commercial break, usually at the end of it.

    There is a commercial break on YouTube which not only has...

    I probably would have written a book about it if it wasn't for the publishing costs involved!

    Re: which song gets you thinking about childhood

    A Pick of the Pops chart from the early to mid 1980s can have a multiple number of songs on there that remind me about childhood.

    Always reminds me of West Side Story (also from 1961).
