  1. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    I remember Dempsey & Makepeace when it was current, I don't think it's been repeated in a long time though. There was another, titled Due South, with a Canadian mountie and a U.S. policeman and we...
  2. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    He held records for number of books of all sorts, fiction and non-fiction, published at one time I believe. I keep meaning to read his commentary on the Bible someday (having an interest in...

    Re: Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

    A sports commentator/former coach here made a comment in his filler segment along the lines of "you people who come over here should be wearing poppies" aimed at immigrants. They gave him a chance to...
  4. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    I'm still impressed with Z Cars enough that for any one character saying something dated there were two saying something else making the other look dated. It wasn't all Andy Capp, and the character...

    Aye (I fowled up the edit function and just missed it, for a correction of 1962-62 to 1962-63) :o
  8. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    Heidi by Joanna Spyri was one of my favorites, also Bambi by Felix Salten.

    I have some fond memories of those precious little Beatrix Potter books too with the tipped in colour-plate on the cover....
  9. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    I watched some 1962-63 Z Cars and I think it holds up quite well surprisingly, but then it wasn't Dixon Of Dock Green. There's one show where a black family ends up locked out of their flat, it...

    Re: The Seekers and Judith Durham

    There is a DVD with three '60s TV specials the original group made; it has a nice thick booklet with it too! They said they set viewing numbers records of some kind at the time. Two were more...

    Re: Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

    I think it's almost become bigger in more recent years. I remember special assemblies at school with a veteran giving a speech and slides, but now schools close. Another new thing though is people...

    Re: Starsky and Hutch or the Professionals ?

    I never cared for Starsky & Hutch when it was on. Never watched in repeats either. I think they sold a lot of toy cars because of it, but I didn't get into it. I did like The Professionals... maybe...

    Re: RIP Leah Brackn;ll - Emmerdale Actress

    She was very good in Emmerdale. I think maybe the high point was the storyline where she was sectioned. Sorry to learn of her death at a fairly young age. :cry:
  16. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    I'd think Salford for Walker based on the fictional Jack and Annie Walker in Coronation Street. :o

  17. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    I wish I could visit Leeds someday as my Mum's family all came from there; there are streets with the family names in the west, and I think still a farm in the southern part. Anyone want to figure...

    Re: What was cheaper in the 1970s?

    Magazines, comic papers and softcover books seemed cheaper in the '70s, maybe adjusted for inflation they weren't really, but they seemed cheaper!

    People listening to the same radio station or program happened a lot in the '70s, now it must be pretty rare.
