    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    I remember many of those adverts from 1992.

    Channel 4 used to show a long one for Samurai Chef kitchen knives a lot, it was almost an infomercial telling you how great they were at cutting various...

    Re: What car did you learn to drive in?

    I don't think Simcas ever sold well over here, they didn't seem to have the presence of the other French brands in spite of having 1-2 innovative designs, & poor rust proofing didn't help either.

    Re: Mexican jumping beans

    Supposedly my brother swallowed one when he was young, & my parents were worried the weight inside was made out of lead!

    The Wiggly Gigglys of the mid 1980s were similarly weighted with a steel...

    Re: Tortoises

    They used to be imported in quite basic conditions, sometimes just put into crates with some straw, but now animal welfare is a higher concern so imports are better managed, which explains the high...

    I didn't know until I looked them up that Mexican Jumping Beans are naturally occurring.

    I remember Blue Peter always had a feature on putting George their Tortoise into hibernation for the winter, & getting him out again.

    Re: Mrs Browns Boys

    I like it, it's daft fun but the cast are well aware of this & play along with it.

    Da Movie wasn't so good, probably because opening up things removed the cosiness of the TV setting.

    Though it...

    Re: Football Clubs

    Port Vale might be a good candidate, though they used to have Burslam at the front of the name so you knew where in Stoke they played.

    I remember seeing clips of a news of a future show made in the 1970s, which featured Richard Baker, who was also interviewed about it.

    Re: The year 2000 from a past perspective

    On the extras of the Back To The Future DVD box set the makers admit they were never going to get 2015 correct so deliberately played up the wow factor.

    The 1980s Cafe scenes get funnier every...

    Re: The year 2000 from a past perspective

    For a long time before the millennium a lot of things had 2000 as part of the name to make them sound futuristic, some of which were dated by the time the 21st century started.
  15. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    The 1970s seemed to be mocked a lot in the 1980s, almost as soon as the 70s ended.

    Ironically 1970s music & fashions were popular in the 1990s, so many things that would have laughed at a few...

    Re: Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In

    The Simpsons spoofed some elements of the Laugh In during the Spin-off Showcase which had the regular cast perform in a variety show, was also homaged the Brady Bunch doing a similar show.

    You've Been Framed! often has clips of people doing daft things on motorbikes so I think it would be allowed.

    One odd thing about them was you could normally only hear half the conversation, as I assume each part was on another frequency.

    Re: Long distance radio stations picked up

    I remember my Dad's car radio occasionally picked up taxi radios, back when the top end of FM radio (105-108MHz) was still used in the UK for 2 way radios.
  23. Re: TV progs that 'HAVE' and 'HAVE NOT' stood the test of time....

    I remember Howard's Way being repeated in the early 2000s in the daytime on BBC2.

    Talking Pictures has shown a few interesting programmes recently.

    Re: Teachers who had left the school

    I had a few teacher leave the schools I was at, but none of them were for anything dramatic, normally because they were going to teach at another school, or going on maternity leave.
