    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I was wondering whether anyone has experienced anything like I have just done this year?

    Last week, I posted all the Christmas cards to people I know, including people who were members of a group...

    Re: Kidney stones

    My late father had them in around 1986 - he had to go to the QMC when he had problems with them, although thinking about it, it might have been gallstones instead.

    Not to mention Robin "Timewaster Letters" Cooper had one out as well.

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    It wasn't until 2004 that ITV plc came into place, and in hindsight the channel was referred to as a dysfunctional family, what with one company doing completely the opposite thing to another.

    I hope that I have influenced you on what to watch on Christmas Day! - I have to admit that despite having the main TV listings magazines in front of me, there almost seem to be the odd half hour...

    I don't think Central would have been part of it, unless they were the main provider of the programmes to the network - they didn't show Night Network because they wanted to continue showing films in...

    Christmas Day TV 2019

    As Wednesday is regarded as the most ordinary day of the week, I am looking forward to Christmas Day as a result as it will fall on that day.
     
    Highlights either side of Christmas Day include the...

    Australia is nice at this time of year - where do you think all the sunshine and heatwaves go when it is dark and cold in Great Britain?

    Re: Black friday

    I have always associated the phrase with something negative, such as Black Monday in 1987 when the stock market crashed on 19th October that year, probably unrelated to the storms the previous week.

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    I believe that there was briefly a TV version of Radio Caroline in around 1970 (looking at old microfilm newspaper copies) but it didn't last long because of the authorities finding out. Reading a...

    I am surprised as well - how long has black Friday been a tradition in the United States? - yet it was only around five years ago when it took off (literally) in Great Britain.

    Most programmes were seen on BBC 1 in Wales, and Wales only missed out on repeats which the main BBC 1 had shown - programmes made in England are more likely to be seen in Wales rather than the other...

    Amazing that there was more difference between London and the South on ITV, than there was between London and Scotland on BBC 1.
