    Sticky: Re: Defunct sweets?

    I am intrigued by the Cadbury's Special Branch packaging - was this something which was tied in with the early 1970s police series?

    I can understand why the BBC didn't want the association...

    Re: Super mousse??

    Super Mousse was a great desert, but one had to wait almost half an hour for it to thaw out, while our mouths watered all that time - my late mother on Sunday afternoons used to put our close to the...

    Re: It's back

    I must be getting old myself, as just like Strictly, hardly any of the "celebrity" names are familiar to me - but then again, I don't usually watch MTV and BBC Three-style Reality TV so and so I...
  5. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    Interesting how we automatically pronounce ZZ Top as "Zee Zee Top" by habit when we see if written down, even in Great Britain.
  6. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    The obvious Mr Men books - never got the full set. Also got the Mr Men annuals - they were numbered such as No 3 or No 4 and never had the year on the front cover, but I guess that they were from the...

    Re: Barbers shops

    This thread has just reminded me of that "Lionel Blair-cut" Harp lager advert from around 1993 which had Brian Conley in it as the hairdresser (or Barber).
  10. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    It's mostly a European thing - French spellings resemble British spellings when it comes to words like "colour" and "flavour", and as Britain is closer to France, it's not surprising. Nited States,...
  11. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    What about the Happy Families trilogy of books by Allan Ahlberg? His wife Jannet illustrated them - I always associate them with the school library on Friday afternoons and borrowing one of them a...

    Looks just like a photograph.

    It could be lice doing that. :D

    Re: Barbers shops

    Come to think of it, we don't get too many female "barbers" do we?
  16. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    Notice that the Elizabeth Taylor film X, Y, and Zee was spelt like that for non-American markets.

    BBC News reported on it - absolutely shocking.

    Re: Barbers shops

    This is the main reason why I would never use razors to remove stubble - cue having to use toilet paper to cover up the cuts on the face.

    I would personally use scissors, and I am talking about in...

    Re: Barbers shops

    I suppose to left-handed people, one's "scissors hand" would vary.
  20. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    That's the danger of posting and clicking back a page - you think it has not posted when it has.

    I like how Z Cars is mentioned phonetically as Zed Cars on Wikipedia just in case anyone from the...

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    When ITV 3 started to show Coronation Street a couple of years ago, there was an episode where Audrey mispriced jars of HP Sauce as being 14p instead of 41p - she must have got the numbers the wrong...

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    I thought that it was for the benefit of the customer, so that they didn't have to go to a member of staff and ask, "excuse me, how much is this?"

    Even then, barcodes were on certainly already...
  24. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    Anything by Roald Dahl (and I don't mean Tales of the Unexpected) - he was the JK Rowling of his day.
