    Re: Eurovision song contest

    Morocco was in the 1980 competition and they were obviously the wrong side of the Mediterranean to be in Europe.

    This year's contest has comparisons with 1979-1980 - in 1979 Israel hosted it and...

    Mr Shifter and his Removal Men

    Does anyone remember a promotional LP that was probably given away in an offer with PG Tips teabags in probably the late 1970s or early 1980s - probably closer to the early 1980s? It was one that was...
  3. Re: RIP Jamie Lehane - Russell "Jacko" Morgan Grange Hill fame

    That's probably why I get the two confused.

    He would have been born around the same time that Grange Hill started in early 1978, ironically enough.

    Re: Odeon cinemas.....never again!

    The same should happen regarding theatres as well where the actors on stage can really be disrupted if someone's phone going off, and that is more annoying because the performance is live - think of...

    Re: Grange hill

    ...or indeed Friday 2nd February 1990 - 2nd January was a Tuesday.

    Pity I cannot edit the previous post.

    Re: Music and news

    Sounds (no pun intended) like a lot of things such as TOTP2 or something, but I would go with Richard's guess - I wonder whether the years were at random or were in chronological order?

  9. Re: Bottom: A Tour of Richie and Eddie's World

    There was once two episodes of The Bill being scheduled back to back, and I suppose it was difficult to refer to them as "a double bill of The Bill".
  10. Re: RIP Jamie Lehane - Russell "Jacko" Morgan Grange Hill fame

    He was around post-1990, wasn't he? I assume that he wouldn't be as remembered as a Tucker-era actor would be.

    I thought that he was called Brian, unless I was thinking of another actor or...

    So we have reached that time of year again - this year, it is hosted in Israel (cf Dana International and Milk and Honey). The last time the UK hosted, Israel won, so I wonder whether it could be the...

    Yes, I think that I had a red projector with "comic book" slides coming with it.

    Re: Noel's House Party

    I suppose that it was a bit like a 1990s BBC family version of Tiswas on Saturday evenings - Noel Edmonds could get a bit annoying as the BBC seemed to have made him into the Jeremy Beadle of BBC 1...

    Re: The Young Doctors

    Not quite free if you pay for a TV licence (like most people), but I take your point - it is cheaper in the long run.

    Just did a bit of shopping in my Sainsbury's Local earlier on and I was right - Walkers have got some sub-Pringles crisps in a tube on the shelves - "Stax" I think they are called.
