    Re: RIP Sean Connery

    Connery was the first James Bond to actually appear in the films - he was probably the definitive James Bond as well out of all the other actors.

    Very sad news, bit at least I was neither shaken...
  2. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    I don't think that my parents would have done that - with the landing light switched off and being so close to the top of the stairs, shall we say that leaving objects on the floor outside would have...
  3. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    Yes, that what happened to me as well - I used to think that the bedroom was a really magical place during the early hours of Christmas Day in the early to mid 1980s.
  4. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    We did on Sunday morning (sorry, couldn't resist).

    But yes, I would turn it back to around 1983 to 1986.

    Re: pictures of your schools.

    With regards to the schools that I went to, just imagine a "run of the mill" building with an entrance at the front, and a sign with council or LEA logo and school name outside.

    in response to...
  7. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    It would have been amazing for someone to have an off-air copy from the 1970s and put it onto YT - I believe that Yorkshire TV (now ITV plc) would almost certainly have it in their archive. However,...
  8. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    That was the BBC version in the 1960s - Frankie Howerd, Ray "Lord Charles" Alan, and Leslie Crowther all hosted it over the years. In 1969 someone called Rolf Harris (sincere apologies for mentioning...
  9. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    They were Bootiful though.
  10. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    The ITV programme was called A Merry Morning, made by Yorkshire TV, and ran from 1969 to 1980.
  11. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    My family would have preferred chicken or even duck as they said that turkey was too dry - I have always been faithful to Bernard Matthews when it came to Christmas dinner.
  12. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    I assume that they were ones that were hosted by Leslie Crowther or Jimmy Tarbuck - they were before my time, but I am certain that TV-am did something similar in the mid 1980s using Roland Rat.
  13. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    There are so many of them, and these are my choices:

    1) Staying up on Christmas Eve and either seeing Midnight Mass or a film on the other side.

    2) Christmas Day at around 6.00 am and waking...

    Re: Just Got This On Ebay.

    I thought that the copyright of the original author lives on for many years after their deaths - however, it does seem weird for books published in recent years to be "written" by authors who had...

    Re: Just Got This On Ebay.

    I have assumed that they couldn't be more recent than the late 1960s because Blyton died in 1968, but saying that, I have wondered whether someone had been using the Blyton name as a penname after...

    Re: What colours are YOU seeing ??

    Pink and white again.

    For the record, I am not colour-blind either.
  19. Re: Business Computer Game Programme BBC2 Sunday Night 80's/90's

    I didn't say it was Busman's Holiday, but something like that genre.

    If I could have a Christmas present this year, it would be for the coronavirus pandemic to disappear for good.

    Re: Diana BBC interview

    Speaking of Martin Bashir, I was sorry to hear about him being unwell with the coronavirus - I hope that he gets well very soon.

    Re: What films have you been watching lately..

    I have looked on the Sky EPG and saw quite a few the Christmas films listed on there - I was thinking whether during the early hours of the clocks going back an hour on Sunday morning, I might watch...

    It happened to me back in 1997, and Christmas did feel different than in previous years.

    Do you know, I feel like that at the moment as well. Isn't this the time of year when Boots and Argos have their Christmas catalogues out? - the latter who have now scrapped their traditional...
  25. Re: Business Computer Game Programme BBC2 Sunday Night 80's/90's

    I have looked on the UK Game Shows website but couldn't find anything - was it similar to game shows like Busman's Holiday?
