    It's interesting to see the Dukes Of Hazard on a Wednesday, it seemed to be on a Saturday for years.

    'Thriller' at 11pm on ITV...would that be a repeat of an episode of the old Brian Clemens series from the 70s?

    The 80 minute timeslot is about right for it. I used to love that series in the 70s. I wish one of the digital ITV stations would show it again.

    I vaguely remember the repeat of "The Prisoner" at around that time.
    I was quite excited about a chance to see it again, but TBH even then I thought it had dated badly.

    Recall watching 'The Prisoner' in 1983.
    Thriller is brilliant. Currently watching this on dvd weekly.
    Grange Hill use to be aired on bbc1. So is the show stated in the listing possibly a repeat.
