    Ten in a Bed

    Does anyone remember reading a children's story either at school or at their local library, which was called "Ten in a Bed" and was written (and perhaps even illustrated) by Allan "Happy Families"...

    Re: Bullying

    Being in the final year of Junior school reminded me of this poor lad in the same class as myself who had been diagnosed with encopresis (faecal soiling) and he was called names as a result - he was...

    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    It does look as if a second wave might be coming as Johnson has said - the number of deaths have gone up again. I was hoping that lightning wouldn't strike twice, but six months onwards, I wouldn't...

    Re: Autumn

    We will be passing the autumn equinox in a day or so - notice how reasonably light it is in the evenings and dark it is in the mornings. You would have thought that it was like November in the...

    Re: "Sixteen Candles" 1984

    Sounds like that Two Ronnies sketch shown four times over.

    Re: Advert memories from 1985

    Another advert was the Kellogg's Corn Flakes one from around September 1985 with the plastic model aeroplane kits free in the cereal packets - one had to put it together a la the toys from the Kinder...

    We had washing lines at home in the back garden until the tumble dryer came along! No more taking them off the pegs when it starts to rain...

    Re: Wheres George ?

    Why did I miss this thread? - I happened to look over the past few pages and I found it.

    Very touching to see that so many people were concerned about me. :)

    Re: Masionettes

    You are more likely to hear it in Pick of the Pops type programmes - if they do a December 1982 or most likely a January 1983 chart, you will probably hear it then.

    I have always wondered what...

    I was taking a bit of exercise on Monday evening on my way to post some letters when I saw a local double decker bus come past, and I quickly glanced to the windows of the top deck and saw two...

    Masionettes

    I have just played Heartache Avenue on YouTube (many years ago I also got the 7 inch single in a charity shop as well), and it often made me think why they didn't have further hits in the charts - I...
  17. Re: London's Burning TV Series (1986 till 2002)

    There was an episode which featured a school setting a fire alarm off and, I think, was a false alarm and the school getting a good rollicking as a result. Another one was some plants hung up over a...

    Advert memories from 1985

    It's amazing how watching old 1980s ad breaks on YouTube can bring back something quite vague to the memory - 1985 seemed to be the year when grainy filmed adverts gave way to more VT ads, and so...

    Re: RIP Alan Minter

    Correction: just looked on Big Red Book.info, and Minter actually appeared on TIYL in 1980. I suppose that the surprise and shock of Andrews accosting him led him to use choice language in response.
  20. Re: London's Burning TV Series (1986 till 2002)

    I was thinking about those nicknames of Sicknote and Bayleaf (or was it Bailiff?), and thought whether anyone in the fire service (or any other public service for that matter) had crew with ironic...
  21. Re: London's Burning TV Series (1986 till 2002)

    It was on Sunday evenings, usually with school in the morning and all that - I often think of it as Casualty or The Bill with the London Fire Brigade instead of the ambulance service or the police. I...
  22. Re: The ends of Question rounds on quiz shows

    That is an excellent point - the shows that have no actual prize, the contestant is allowed to answer when the time is up, but are not when a prize such as cash, a car or holiday is up for grabs.

    RIP Alan Minter

    Boxer Alan Minter has also died aged 69.

    One legacy Minter had was the fact that This is Your Life had to be pre-recorded after his appearance on the show as the star guest in 1983 when he started...
