    Re: Woof!

    The series was filmed, Jamie Johnson-style, in Nottingham (Just like a lot of Central TV series are) - West Bridgford was one of the areas where it was filmed. I know that they also filmed inside the...
  2. Real life Alan Partridge-alike radio presenters

    As you know, Alan Partridge was a parody of so many TV presenters, and like some of them, they disappear from national view and end up doing the regional news or local radio. That made me think of...

    Re: Reebok Pumps

    I was watching the Fork Handles sketch yet again, and of course there was the confusion between pumps (shoes) and foot pumps by the Two Ronnies.

    When I think of those Pump shoes, I always think...
  4. Re: 80's songs you never hear on the radio these days

    Isn't it annoying when one gets the earworm of a tune from a certain year but cannot find who sung the damn thing or what the title was? Back in the 1980s I found a C90 with a Sunday Top 30 on it...

    Re: George and Lynne

    The Daily Star ripped George and Lynne off with their "Ben and Katie" cartoon strip.

    My favourite Sun newspaper cartoon strip was Livvy - remember that?

    Re: Green Shield Stamps

    Could that be something to do with TV Licensing or the Coop? I have said it before on here - my late father used to have a chequebook-sized book with stamp sized grids inside to stick stamps in. He...

    Prime Ministers

    The news that Theresa May will be quitting as Prime Minister very soon made think of a lot of her predecessors (whose faces mostly grace the pictures hung over the staircase at Number 10) who have...
  10. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    Try living here for six months and you will soon change your own opinion! ;)

    Seriously, as I have said before, if you are on the outside looking in, it's not too bad. The Victoria Centre is superb...
  11. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    Ooh, I love your crisps (sorry, wrong part of this forum...) ;)

    Where I used to live growing up, I did some research into the history of my old home, and there was a family of Walkers lived at my...

    Re: Extremely obscure reference!

    Now you have said that, it does ring bells after all!

    There was a turkey who appeared in that programme called Gobbledegook (Gobble de gook, get it?) - he kept speaking in such a way that some...
  14. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    You went at a time when it was safe to do so! - I suppose that 50 years ago it wasn't too bad (even though it was before my time).

    I have always hated the Robin Hood stereotype that Nottingham...

    RIP Judith Kerr - children's author

    Judith Kerr, the author of the children's book The Tiger Who Came to Tea has died at the age of 95 - someone who was probably in the "Words and Pictures" territory of children's books a la Allan...
  16. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    Is there anyone on here who has actually visited that titan of British cities (and my hometown) Nottingham, and have lived to tell the tale, or would like to visit Nottingham in the future?

    Re: Things that dont happen anymore

    At least (as we have been discussing on the Odeon cinema thread) that I wouldn't be caught out if a mobile phone went off - mind you, I don't go to the cinema much these days either.

    Re: Trakkie Bottoms

    To be honest, I think that Harry Enfield's Scousers characters didn't do too much for those who wore tracksuit bottoms.

    A few years ago I had been trying to find some black tracksuit bottoms in...
  23. Re: 80's songs you never hear on the radio these days

    Appropriately enough for the day of the ESC, Pick of the Pops had the 1980 chart last Saturday and Logan was number one with What's Another Year.

    Re: What was cheaper in the 1970s?

    Don't forget that back then, we didn't have too much of the Green Party "tree hugging" and recycling phenonium until around the late 1980s, and so people were not too bothered on how much paper was...
