  1. Re: Stupid things you were scared of when you were little.

    By the way, I sympathise with everyone who has posted on here - it must have taken some guts to write it down in this thread.
  2. Re: Stupid things you were scared of when you were little.

    I was so fascinated reading the memories in this thread, and I do feel very guilty bumping up an old thread, but I thought I would add some of my own, which I was scared of. I know that I probably...

    Re: Stan and ollie

    I did get that "We Need to talk about Alan" book from WHSmith during that bridge between Christmas and New Year in 2011 - when I had it on the bookcase at the old place, many visitors were impressed...

    Re: Stan and ollie

    I bet that they are both funny.

    Speaking of Coogan, I don't think that I have seen that Alan Partridge film from 2013 - I believe it's been seen on TV a couple of times. I know it was doing the...
  5. Re: Lyrics you always mis-heard but didn't know it

    When I was watching the Christmas Day edition of TOTP there was a song that sounded in the lyrics as if the singer was singing "Tesco sober" - ironically, I was rather close to some alcohol from the...

    Re: Vesta

    I believe that they are very popular with students (makes a change from beans on toast and Ryvita when the money runs out...)

    Re: What have you been watching on youtube

    I am not going to get started with some British clips that cannot be seen in the United Kingdom (unless the phrase "your country" actually means the United States by default).

    Re: Zoe ball gets top job on R2

    I just wish that I was back in the days of Derek "morning, morning" Jameson, or long before that, the Breakfast Special with John Dunn or Paul Hollingdale (even though it was before I was born of...

    Re: Vesta

    When were they last advertised on TV? The 1990s perhaps?

    They have had such a low profile in recent years, probably because people think that they are no longer being made.

    Re: Stan and ollie

    Steve Coogan is such a great character actor, although unlike Alan Partridge he is seems to be very incognito as Hardy (or is it Laurel that he actually plays?)

    Re: What have you been watching on youtube

    I am like that myself - I get annoyed when I find old ITV and Channel 4 programmes from the 1980s with the adverts cut out. The adverts are the most prestigious as the probability is that officially...

    Re: Missing Threads

    By the way, thanks to Google Cache I have managed to revive the "Christmas Day films on after the Queen" thread that I started three weeks ago - it's back in the Movies forum, although it is not...
  15. Re: Christmas Day films on after the Queen (Thankfully revived)

    The first Superman film from 1978 was on Christmas Day in 1983 as a warm up for Bullseye - and your namesake was on in both 1985 and 1990 as well (rather than Thunderball as I had originally said at...
  16. Re: Christmas Day films on after the Queen (Thankfully revived)

    I am not against cartoon films - I actually prefer your actual old school Disney and Warner Brothers stuff, but they do feel the same each year when they are shown, and very little has changed in the...
  17. Christmas Day films on after the Queen (Thankfully revived)

  19. Re: The best CBBC and CITV programmes from the 1980s

    One thing that CITV was better at doing in the 1980s was getting some of the stars from the programmes to actually be continuity announcers for a whole month - Rod Hull and Emu were probably the best...

    Re: Your favourite School year

    Tales of the Unexpected didn't start until 1979.

    But I get your point - in the autumn term of 1988 (fourth year Juniors aka Year 6), the school playground (and classroom) discussions were mostly...

    Re: Regional News Programmes

    I suppose that Derek Hobson was the Richard Whiteley of the Midlands - i.e. a regional newsreader who was also a national presenter.

    Amazing the Bob Warman has been the only one who have survived...

    Regional News Programmes

    Regional news happens three or four times a day on BBC 1 and ITV, but of course, I am mostly referring to the half hour news programmes that are on at around 6.00 pm, and mostly ITV ones as well.
