    I remember my local Co-op used to stock them.
  2. Re: The year 2000 from a past perspective

    I remember seeing clips of a news of a future show made in the 1970s, which featured Richard Baker, who was also interviewed about it.
  3. Re: Regional children's programmes on ITV after CITV

    Welcome Back Kotter featured a pre-Saturday Night Fever John Travolta
  4. Re: The year 2000 from a past perspective

    On the extras of the Back To The Future DVD box set the makers admit they were never going to get 2015 correct so deliberately played up the wow factor.

    The 1980s Cafe scenes get funnier every...
  5. Re: The year 2000 from a past perspective

    For a long time before the millennium a lot of things had 2000 as part of the name to make them sound futuristic, some of which were dated by the time the 21st century started.
  6. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    The 1970s seemed to be mocked a lot in the 1980s, almost as soon as the 70s ended.

    Ironically 1970s music & fashions were popular in the 1990s, so many things that would have laughed at a few...

    Re: Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In

    The Simpsons spoofed some elements of the Laugh In during the Spin-off Showcase which had the regular cast perform in a variety show, was also homaged the Brady Bunch doing a similar show.
  9. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    You've Been Framed! often has clips of people doing daft things on motorbikes so I think it would be allowed.
  10. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    At least in Curry & Chips he was supposed to be half Irish.
  11. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    Only Fools & Horses seemed to tone down the close to the bone jokes as it went on.

    In Sickness & In Health seemed lot tamer than the original Till Death Do Us Part, with Alf being far more of a...

    Re: Long distance radio stations picked up

    One odd thing about them was you could normally only hear half the conversation, as I assume each part was on another frequency.

    Re: Long distance radio stations picked up

    I remember my Dad's car radio occasionally picked up taxi radios, back when the top end of FM radio (105-108MHz) was still used in the UK for 2 way radios.
  14. Re: TV progs that 'HAVE' and 'HAVE NOT' stood the test of time....

    I remember Howard's Way being repeated in the early 2000s in the daytime on BBC2.

    Talking Pictures has shown a few interesting programmes recently.

    Re: Teachers who had left the school

    I had a few teacher leave the schools I was at, but none of them were for anything dramatic, normally because they were going to teach at another school, or going on maternity leave.

    Re: Long distance radio stations picked up

    Occasionally my car radio picks up traffic reports from stations a distance away, Radio Stoke & Radio Shefield are common.
  17. Re: Real life Alan Partridge-alike radio presenters

    Smooth North West has had a few better known DJs over the years, though many of the shows are broadcast over all of the Smooth regional stations these days.
  18. Re: 80's songs you never hear on the radio these days

    I was like that with Dolce Vita by Ryan Paris for years. I assumed it was by Howard Jones or one of the other keyboard wizards of the 1980s.

    Luckily the Top Of The Pops repeats on BBC4 featured...
  19. Re: places in th UK you would love to visit and why

    I remember Graham Norton's Who Do You Think You Are? I think they did trace the Walkers back to Yorkshire, didn't find an exact connection. When a lot of Irish land was owned by English landlords...

    Re: R I P Nicki lauder

    Very sad news, I had heard he was having problems with his health in recent years, but didn't know how bad it was.

    I would recommend reading his Autobiography To Hell & Back, which he wrote not...

    Also to remind people that everything wasn't better in the past, some years were quite depressing to watch.

    Re: The Flashing Blade comedy version

    I remember it could be hilarious at times, though I hadn't seen The Flashing Blade before then. I remember BBC2 repeated it a year or 2 after, & the dubbing even on that made it seem quite comical.
