    Aww no, that's really sad.
    Granada Reports is just rubbish these days, Bob and Tony Wilson will be presenting a so much better one in the sky. God bless em both.

    Re: Death of the cassette

    I'm sure the police still use them for interviews. MP3s and other computer records are too easily tampered with, a few clicks of the mouse can get rid of 'SMACK! AAARRRRGHHH! KICK! PUNCH! OOOOFFF!'...

    Not me, but another kid this.

    We had to remember the Ten Commandments in a religious studies test, and the teacher, who was a right fire-and-brimstone nutter, said to one lad 'You've got them all...
