    Re: Barbers shops

    I remember even in the 1980s the barbers my Dad used to take me & my brother to occasionally women cutting our hair.

    Normally the owner was cutting at one chair & a women at the other.

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    I think price labels stopped being used by the supermarket chains because most products started to have bar codes on the packaging, & when prices changed it was easier to change the shelf labels &...

    The BBC seemed to not mind certain directors casting actors on a regular basis, especially in Doctor Who, though as this often required specialist actors for playing non-human characters it's fairly...

    Re: Genesis

    It's clever how the chorus could be from a Christian rock song, but the verses tell a different story.

    The video (especially the extended version) is shot like a Praise The Lord style religious...
  10. Re: For any Deep Purple , Rainbow or Whitesnake fans

    Robert Plant has trouble singing some of Led Zeppelin's songs due to his voice changing, during a recent reunion tour they had to change the key so he could manage.

    Jesus He Knows Me is a hidden gem, released when many televangelists were under scrutiny after a few scandals.
  13. Re: The mostly ghastly and irritating bands/singers you remember or were jealous of

    That's when they have to play in a cage because of the rowdy customers throwing bottles, but at least they manage a decent version of Stand By Your Man.

    Re: The bill (1984-2010)

    I remember the BBC tried to make their own Bill with Waterfront Beat, which was originally shown on a Saturday night.

    They were also trying to emulate the success of Casualty, but it fell short...

    Re: Catweazle

    I also saw it on Saturday, it's a series I've read a lot about but never had the chance to see.

    It was fun to see his reaction to elec-trickery, & the telling bone has been featured in a trailer.

    Re: The bill (1984-2010)

    I remember getting into The Bill during the mid 1990s, but stopped watching it so much after 2000 when it started to become more soap like.

    London's Burning also started to become more of a soap...

    Really the Leave should have a published a dossier to explain what happens next rather than make it up as they go along, or at least that how it fells.
