    Re: Advert memories from 1997

    I know that Cadbury's Time Out was being advertised in 1992-1993 as our detention room at school was called Time Out where pupils were sent there to take "Time Out" from lessons - many kids made...

    Advert memories from 1997

    Seeing as you most of you enjoyed my Advert Memories from 1992 thread, I have decided to do another one of these by going forwards five years in time to 1997 - the year that I lost my father, sadly;...
  5. Re: Anyone know what this show is called from the 80's?

    That's the programme which came to mind.
  6. Re: Clothes from the past you would not wear today

    I was being a bit too literal and ironic, I would say that I wouldn't wear my school uniform today. ;)
  7. Re: Anyone know what this show is called from the 80's?

    It was on Channel 4 from 1987 to 1989, and then on ITV (courtesy of Yorkshire and Tyne Tees) between 1993 and 1995 - I thought at first that it was something which was presented by a former Blue...

    Irene Cara

    I will be taking a sabbatical to see Fame the Musical at the Bournemouth Pavilion for my birthday next week, travelling the best part of 200 miles, and so I thought that I would start a thread on the...
  9. Re: Anyone know what this show is called from the 80's?

    Run the Gauntlet was on ITV - nearly every Bank Holiday Monday it was on in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

    We got a few of those, growing up in inner-city Nottingham.

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    That Harris Carpets one in the Round the 'Gate adverts clip on YouTube looks terrifying in - too loud and it was 15 seconds long. I know it was before I was born, but...

    And Corbett would always wear those "Rupert Bear" trousers when out on the golf course, making him look like an Open University presenter from 1973.

    Stubbs would probably have Felicity Kendal, Tracey Ullman and Maggie Moone on her team, while Blair would have Bernard Cribbins, Willie Rushton and Nicholas Parsons on his. I tell you, Brucie made at...

    A shell suit circa 1991-1992. No way would I wear them now!

    Re: Menswear shops

    Burton still exist - they are basically a male version of Dorothy Perkins, aren't they? - they are owned by the same group.

    One that springs to mind is Foster Menswear - an advert in a daily...

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    It's a bit like a Christmas party we had at school - my family got rid of a load of Tracker bars and donated them to the party and everyone wanted one. I just hope that they had not passed their sell...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    Gordon Honeycombe hardly had any hair and he had success working for ITN and then TV-am - ironic for someone with "comb" in their name.

    Re: Two people

    Two possibilities:

    1) A Bunch of Fives, which was a children's TV drama from ATV - very similar to Grange Hill and it probably influenced it.

    2) An LWT (or perhaps Yorkshire TV) Friday 9.00 pm...

    Not quite a famous name as such, but the Canadian-born animator Richard Williams who worked on the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died aged 86 in Bristol - ironically enough, a city associated...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    There is no such phrase as "play your cards correctly", is there? - I have always associated that phrase with the game show.

    I think that nearly everything on TV in the 1980s was magical to...

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    No, it's not that one, but I was referring to some on YouTube which could have been former cinema adverts - I think that there were nearly ten clips of them in total.

    Those adverts you mentioned...

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    Yes, that's the one! Thanks David.

    That advert was going in July 1992 around the time my school broke up for the holidays because someone was singing the jingle on the final day of term.
