    Irene Cara

    I will be taking a sabbatical to see Fame the Musical at the Bournemouth Pavilion for my birthday next week, travelling the best part of 200 miles, and so I thought that I would start a thread on the...
  2. Re: Anyone know what this show is called from the 80's?

    Run the Gauntlet was on ITV - nearly every Bank Holiday Monday it was on in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    We got a few of those, growing up in inner-city Nottingham.

    Re: Adverts that terrified you as a kid

    That Harris Carpets one in the Round the 'Gate adverts clip on YouTube looks terrifying in - too loud and it was 15 seconds long. I know it was before I was born, but...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    And Corbett would always wear those "Rupert Bear" trousers when out on the golf course, making him look like an Open University presenter from 1973.

    Stubbs would probably have Felicity Kendal, Tracey Ullman and Maggie Moone on her team, while Blair would have Bernard Cribbins, Willie Rushton and Nicholas Parsons on his. I tell you, Brucie made at...

    A shell suit circa 1991-1992. No way would I wear them now!

    Re: Menswear shops

    Burton still exist - they are basically a male version of Dorothy Perkins, aren't they? - they are owned by the same group.

    One that springs to mind is Foster Menswear - an advert in a daily...

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    It's a bit like a Christmas party we had at school - my family got rid of a load of Tracker bars and donated them to the party and everyone wanted one. I just hope that they had not passed their sell...

    Yes, Pro-Celebrity Golf - Forsyth v Faldo or Tarby v Trevino or someone like that. It never occurred to me until recently that Brucie used to wear a baseball cap because of his hair wasn't quite...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    Gordon Honeycombe hardly had any hair and he had success working for ITN and then TV-am - ironic for someone with "comb" in their name.

    Re: Two people

    Two possibilities:

    1) A Bunch of Fives, which was a children's TV drama from ATV - very similar to Grange Hill and it probably influenced it.

    2) An LWT (or perhaps Yorkshire TV) Friday 9.00 pm...
  13. RIP Richard Williams (Roger Rabbit animator)

    Not quite a famous name as such, but the Canadian-born animator Richard Williams who worked on the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died aged 86 in Bristol - ironically enough, a city associated...

    Re: Play Your Cards Right

    There is no such phrase as "play your cards correctly", is there? - I have always associated that phrase with the game show.

    I think that nearly everything on TV in the 1980s was magical to...

    No, it's not that one, but I was referring to some on YouTube which could have been former cinema adverts - I think that there were nearly ten clips of them in total.

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    Yes, that's the one! Thanks David.

    That advert was going in July 1992 around the time my school broke up for the holidays because someone was singing the jingle on the final day of term.

    Old adverts on the TV are just like looking at old adverts in newspapers and magazines at around the same time - they provide a time capsule of what life was back then, especially if it was for a...

    I have always liked watching old ad breaks as they give a "there and then" perspective of life at times which meant that they couldn't be seen a year later. I used to hate it when people used to...
