    Re: Brit Sitcom Game.

    I can remember watching Citizen Smith, but his real name eludes me. I recall his gf's mom called him Foxy instead of Wolfie. Funny, but I really don't like the series at all now, even though I am a...

    Re: Brit General Cinema Quiz.

    I have no idea about this one. We read the book at school and I didn't like it at all, and have steered clear of the film version ever since.

    Re: 25 Years since leaving school

    It has been nearly 41 years since I left school, May 1978. There was a reunion back in 1994, but I didn't go as my wife was heavily pregnant. To be honest, I don't acknowledge the anniversary of my...

    Re: The Young Doctors

    I live in the ATV/Central area and I have a recollection that The Young Doctors may also have been shown after the afternoon children's programmes, so circa 5.20pm, and that would have been no later...

    Re: Game show hosts

    I think it is the interaction between the show and host that either succeeds or fails. Successful shows can go downhill if a new but unsuitable host takes over. Case in point: Family Fortunes had...

    Re: Home Shopping Purchases Monitors

    No, nothing to do with QVC. This was a scanner that you used on anything at all that you bought, whether from Tesco, Asda, a newsagent, Currys, Argos etc. I am sure it was to analyze shopping data,...

    Home Shopping Purchases Monitors

    Did anyone have a shopping purchases monitor in the 90s and maybe even today? We had one around 1990 up to about the mid 2000s. It was basically a bar code scanner that attached to a phone outlet and...

    Re: Doctors' surgeries

    Back in the 60s and probably as late as the turn of the 80s, our doctor's surgery did not have appointments, but patients were seen on a first come, first served basis. Until the surgery moved in the...

    Yes, and he would pretend to have conversations with Hancock or whomever it was, responding to the lines from the clips.

    All Gas and Gaiters was a clerical sitcom that I think transferred to TV.

    I remember The Clitheroe Kid from listening to episodes in the late 60s/early 70s. Jimmy's sister had such a refined accent compared to the rest of her family and dozy boyfriend, and it was the...
  17. Re: Weird Review Of The Year - BBC2 90's Short Docu

    Glad to have been of help. If I remember correctly, Weird Night was shown at least partly due to the success of The X-Files at the time.
  18. Re: Weird Review Of The Year - BBC2 90's Short Docu

    I think it was called Fortean Review of the Year and was part of BBC2's Weird night in 1994. It is on Youtube in 3 parts. Just search for 'BBC Weird Night- The Fortean Review of the Year 1994'.

    Re: Brit General Cinema Quiz.

    Here's a clue: The title was a single word. The two male characters were probably some of the biggest ITV stars in the late 70s and 80s.

    Re: RIP Peter Tork (The Monkeys)

    Very sad news about Peter Tork. I can just about remember watching The Monkees TV series, and I enjoyed their musical interludes. Yes, only two band members still with us now. So sad. RIP Peter Tork.

    Re: It was all right in the 1970's

    In 40 years time there will be programmes looking back at the 2010s and mocking our present fashions, fads, social attitudes and so forth, just like programmes do today about the 1970s.

    Re: Brit movie/tv quiz.

    That would be Crossroads, Sandy and Jill Richardson, offspring of Meg Richardson.

    Staying with Crossroads, name the Last of the Summer Wine actress who was in the soap for quite a while.
