    They were Bootiful though.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Re: What Was Your Favourite Thing About Christmas When You Were Young,

    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...

    Pink and white again.

    For the record, I am not colour-blind either.

    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...

    Re: Chrimbo 2020

    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...
  17. 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?

    I think that we are far too focused at this moment in time on the coronavirus pandemic to think directly on what we will be doing or what will be happening - for example, I am assuming that church...

    Likewise, I could never have predicted at least 43,579 people in the UK could have died from something that wasn't even in this country this time last year.
