    Re: Hair styles you've had???

    My late father's hair never went grey, and he never used Just for Men or anything like that - I have to say that it does give me optimism if I ever reach his age.

    The world would be a rather boring place if we didn't have eccentric species.
  4. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    Further to my previous response, the 1979 edition of Guinness Hit Singles would have been the second edition as it was published every two years.

    Re: Biscuits you don't see now.

    They were made by Rowntree and then Nestle, just like Kit Kat and Breakaway was, but they never seemed to get as much advertising or space on supermarket shelves as those two other products.

    Re: Grange hill

    Quite a few good points made - schools will always exist, but I have always said that there is a lot more education going on outside a school then inside one. Remember that we had police dramas...
  7. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    ITV 3 still showed On the Buses as recently as last year, and the film spin off sometimes get shown on Bank Holidays.
  8. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    I believe that the first Guinness Book of Hit Singles was published in 1977.

    KP Nuts advert from 1983

    I used to think that this advert for KP Nuts was the most embarrassing advert on TV, so much so that I hated it when it came on the screen (I even cursed my late parents for having ITV on all the...

    Don't Look Now

    Another one of those "I am at my computer because I can't really sleep" threads, I'm afraid - I have got one of the Sky Movie channels on in the background (310, I think), which is showing that...

    Re: It's back

    If I want to see species behaving in an eccentric way, I would go down to Twycross Zoo, but that's enough of the zookeepers there.

    Re: Biscuits you don't see now.

    I was thinking that although it is technically chocolate, the biscuit bar Blue Riband has always been lowkey in recent years, with regards to advertising, being on supermarket shelves and all that -...

    I know that ABBA's name comes from the first initials of the group members - I think that they were blessed in a way for that.

    RIP Jean Fergusson - actress

    The actress Jean Fergusson who appeared as miniskirt-clad Marina in 216 episodes of Last of the Summer Wine has died aged 74.

    For some reason, the fact that she appeared in Summer Wine makes me...

    Re: It's back

    It made me laugh when Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster from that Corrie place) said a few years ago that she wanted to leave the series to "move on and do other things". Someone said that I bet that she...
  18. Re: Favourite Books or stories from childhood.....

    McCullagh also wrote the Puddle Lane stories (as most people know, it was developed into a children's TV series for Yorkshire TV in the mid to late 1980s); and also the One, Two, Three and Away...

    Sticky: Re: Defunct sweets?

    I am intrigued by the Cadbury's Special Branch packaging - was this something which was tied in with the early 1970s police series?

    I can understand why the BBC didn't want the association...
