    Default Thats life.

    did anyone watch this show.

    Bbc 1 at nine on a sunday.

    Hosted by esther rantzen.

    It was so funny at times but yet could deal with serious subjects like guar gum.



    I loved this show.

    I started to watch in the last few years it was on.

    My Dad wasn't a fan of Esther Rantzen much, so it was a bit tricky watching it.

    My Dad said it had started more Watchdog like but gradually got too silly over the years.

    That's weird I was just talking to someone about the show today.

    Remember the newspaper clippings sent in with humorous misprints?

    Or that dog who could say 'sausages'?

    Or the little kid who reeled off the names of members of the cabinet?

    Ah how we laughed......

    I remember they occasionally featured odd named products people had found abroad.

    Some may be interested to know that E.R apparently knew just what pervy JS was up to - for decades - but for her own personal reasons she decided to keep quiet ..... she did create and fronted CL though so that's ok .....

    It was a staple of 70s/80s viewing on sunday nights. I used to like when they would do those street interviews of members of the public and for some reason that same old lady was interviewed nearly every week. There was also a short-lived feature where people would send letters with only the briefest or vaguest of addresses. One week the That's Life office had received a letter with just a drawing of big teeth on the envelope.
