    Re: Erasure

    Thanks I've been interested for a long time about the stories behind some musical acts, it helped that the series Rock Family Trees was around when I was getting more interested in music.

  9. Re: London's Burning TV Series (1986 till 2002)

    Yes it was good viewing for many years, normally on a Sunday night.

    It went downhill when most of the original cast had left & it was re-tooled to be more soap like.

  11. Re: The third year becoming Year Nine and all that
