    Re: what tv show have you been watching.

    Started my (old) folks (at home) on Foyle's War and the Richard Chamberlain tv mini-series Shogun, neither of which they had seen (my parents in their late '70s). I think their brains were really...

    Seems to be mostly bad news from the U.S. and England these days unfortunately. Canada and Australia seem to be doing okay overall from what I can tell with a couple of particularly bad areas in...

    Re: Back in time for the corner shop

    I expect it will turn up over here like the other Back In Time series... I'll keep an eye out for it. Coronation Street has had one since the first episode in 1960 and it has certainly changed over...

    Yes. Wolverhampton might not be mistakable for Toy Town, but it might well have a Sooteries (or a Sooty Heights); could be the soot that gives the black country it's name? :)

    I've seen some clips from Pebble Mill At One on some of the Doctor Who DVD extras. One with Patrick Troughton was fairly memorable circa the time of promoting The Five Doctors anniversary special.

    For awhile Harry and Meghan, and then just Meghan, were nearby, but sadly so were a load of reporters from all corners! :(

  17. Re: What songs make you happy??.... Or make you Cry?

    Usually anything by Slade picks me up, also Madness... Noddy and Suggs... and they were both on This Is Your Life!

    Re: what tv show have you been watching.

    I've gone back to watching Corrie, but it's getting a bit dire again... a couple of stories I just mute and distract myself until I notice characters back on screen I care anything about.

    Jeff Lynne has written a lot of great music from the '60s to the 2000s, amazing talent! I guess if I could have written 'Happy Birthday To You' I might be quite wealthy, but I'd have needed a time...
