    White Arrow vans

    They were around for much of the 1980s - a logo of a chevron-type arrow which was white in colour (natch) on the side of a dark blue van, which looked very much identical to the Blakes 7 logo at the...

    Re: Tap Water

    I thought that water was an endless thing simply because if we can fill the world's oceans with the stuff, then surely we can run a bath and flush toilets with the stuff. Also, when we drink water,...

    Re: The Young Doctors

    It's also worth mentioning on here that when HTV was showing an episode of The Young Doctors in the early 1990s, the screen suddenly went blue and so did the continuity announcer's vocabulary as well...

    Re: Blind Date

    Further to my previous post, I always thought that the "Pillar Box" woman was a Dawn French lookalike - I am certain that they always shown it on highlights compilations, along with the "Norman...

    Re: Tap Water

    It was advertised on TV in the 1980s - I have seen a few ad breaks on YT that advertises Perrier.

    Re: Split the Kipper .... Knife crime ..

    Considering that someone who was in the same class as myself at school back in the 1980s had been stabbed to death just before Christmas in 2016, one could say that knife crime has indirectly...

    Re: The Young Doctors

    Yes - by 1985 most ITV regions had the programme on at 3.30 pm - Central probably would have been the first region to do that.

    I thought they were a 1990s thing to be honest apart from the posh stuff like Perrier of course - the first time I was familiar with them was when we started to have Evian and supermarket own name...

    Re: Tap Water

    A couple of weeks ago, Severn Trent wrote to me and local residents and told us that our water supply was being worked on during the early hours, and that we may be getting discoloured water - they...

    Re: The Young Doctors

    Central showed it at 12.30 pm in 1982 in lieu of The Sullivans which ATV abandoned - it was shown in London on Fridays at 5.15 pm circa 1984 as the first LWT programme just after they come on air for...

    Re: 25 Years since leaving school

    Great to hear your responses!

    The Young Doctors

    I refer to the Australian soap opera which ran between 1976 and around 1982 in its country of origin, and from the mid 1980s to the early 1990s (give or take a few years, and various ITV regions) for...

    Re: Blind Date

    Some of the people on the show are memorable for a number of reasons.

    Does anyone remember the female "contestant" who looked as if she was dressed like a pillar box, complete with a "Captain...

    25 Years since leaving school

    Today (Friday 15th March 2019) marks 25 years to the day since I walked out for school for good and hung up my school uniform for the last time. Yes - it was around 3.10 pm on Tuesday 15th March 1994...

    Re: Game show hosts

    Hosting a game show is like driving a car, (hence the use of the word "vehicle" being used by lots of professionals). A game show that has a different host is like a car with a different driver -...

    I know that I should feel that Blind Date should be on my side as I am a bachelor, but at the time I did think of the show as being rather tacky, even though it was one of LWT's flagship Saturday...

    Who were your favourite game show hosts? Mine would be:

    1) BOB MONKHOUSE - Great mid-Atlantic voice a la Hughie Green and Dickie Henderson. Always preferred his version of Wipeout to Paul Daniels'...
