    Re: In hindsight

    What I should have said there was: a new programme would refer to decimal currency - a repeat would refer to shillings and sixpences.

    Re: In hindsight

    I was thinking about this thread considering that we are now in a new decade - it's very true that the first two or three years we inherit what the previous decade was famous for until around three...

    Re: In hindsight

    One thing to look out for when looking at dates in the past is when dates fall on the same day of the week - and I often compare old TV listings for this as well. I have often wondered whether I...

    Re: In hindsight

    I wasn't that too strong on football, but I did take an interest on Nottingham Forest just after Brian Clough retired in 1993, and Stan Collymore helped us to get promotion after relegation. My...

    Re: In hindsight

    If you were born in 1978 just like me and Richard, I would have probably said yes you were!

    Thinking about it, I did Creative Textiles (Art meets Textiles) for GCSE in 1992-1993 for my options,...

    Re: In hindsight

    True - we change very little when we get older. When I had to renew my pass earlier on this month, I used the same passport photograph as I did four years ago when I was 35 or 36. If I was 10 years...

    Re: In hindsight

    I have said this before, but a neighbour of mine used to work for the distribution department of WHSmith and used to send us some old comics (not in the Bob Hope vein) that there were a few months...

    Re: In hindsight

    Being fascinated with things just four or five years ago seems normal as a seven or eight year old when one has not lived that long - it is more than half of one's life, even though as a 40 year old,...

    Re: In hindsight

    Good point - Ireland won the Eurovision Song Contest four times in the 1990s - three years in a row from 1992 to 1994 and again in 1996, and the 1994 contest (hosted 1993 to 1995 and 1997),...

    Re: In hindsight

    Quite true, but I am sure you would remember being a 1978 person like myself that I was a bit too young to have followed news bulletins and understood them! Funnily enough, I looked at the "1981 in...

    Re: In hindsight

    I have always been fascinated with the year 1981, even though I was two going on three and don't remember that year - I think that it was because it was a very perfect and "British" year because it...

    Re: In hindsight

    There are lots of things that I think were a couple of years ago and finding out, it was over a decade ago. When I was younger, that seemed to be the other way round.

    Re: In hindsight

    I can see from looking at old posts that this forum was first set up in 2005 which was just five years after the 1990s had ended. Don't forget that as late as 2001 we had so-called nostalgia series...
