    Default TV Shows Only You Seem To Remember

    There are a few TV shows that only I seem to remember:

    Virtual Murder - Very quirky series about investigating unusual crimes, a bit like Jonathan Creek but not quite there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Murder

    Anne's Bar - Channel 4's sitcom about Britain's youngest PM. I remember getting though the first episode & being totally baffled by it, as there were so many characters with hardly any introduction. A sort of Drop The Dead Donkey meets Yes Minister without the things that made either of those shows special.

    The other is a long shot & doesn't quite fit, but it worth mentioning. It was an American telemovie about the outbreak of a nuclear war in which the President is missing presumed dead in the first strike & the general running NORAD takes command, only to find that the president is not dead just blinded.

    Superdogs, it was a bit like Crufts, was on BBC1 for a couple of years in the 90s.

    It's amazing how many blank looks I get when I mention 'Captain Zep - Space Detective'. I loved this in the '80s.

    Then there's 'Tales Of The Gold Monkey' and 'Dodger, Bonzo And The Rest' as well.

    I see some lads that i've known since I was about 17 every couple of months for a beer and a catch up. We always cover the same subjects. Films, football, nostalgia. They are a couple of years younger than me and can't remember Hatty town, The Magic ball or Dynomutt, dog wonder.

    Captain Zep could be on my "Good sounding TV shows I never got to see" list, I've seen a few stills in a BBC year book that show that it used a lot of blue screen techniques.

    No-one else apart from me ever seems to remember "The Pondles". It was a kids' cartoon series on CITV around 1988 about these small green-blue creatures that lived in a hidden world inside the hedge at the bottom of a man's garden. The opening sequence had the garden owner narrate about how down at the bottom of his garden, there was a hedge in which lived The Pondles, then the story would revolve around whatever was happening in The Pondles' world. I still remember the end theme tune really clearly, but don't remember any specific stories.

    Oh yes, and there's a few others I always get blank looks when I mention...

    Our House- early 80s kids' show with the Madness song as the theme tune

    Under the Same Sky- CITV show about danger in the natural world in various European countries, with each episode focusing on kids getting into a nasty situation in a chosen country.

    The Blunders- Cartoon series about a family called The Blunders who IIRC were always having accidents.

    Creepy Crawlies- Stop-motion puppet series on CITV around 1987, about a gang of creepy crawlies; narrated by Paul Nicholas who also sang the memorable theme tune.

    'Our House' is really called 'Dodger, Bonzo And the Rest'. I made the same mistake Blitzkid!
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

    I remember The Blunders was narrated by Frankie Howerd, & in one episode Mr Blunder showed himself to be a daft as his son at a parents evening.

    Chockablock - early-mid 80's children TV programme - I finally realised I wasn't making it up when I found it on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnWcm5dr45s

    And Body Talk (least I *think* that was the name) - a series of short informative films about how the body works, with cartoons too. Nobody seems to remember this but I swear it existed!!

    I remember 'Chockablock' - "Chockabloke, checking out!" - It replaced 'Pipkins'.

    When I was a student in Colchester in the early-to-mid '90s, there was a show exclusive to the Anglia region which was a dating show hosted by David 'Kid' Jensen, it was on during a week night (possibly Mondays), and they always had two guests in the studio looking for love, and a number of videos of others talking about themselves and also looking for love. Viewers who liked what they saw could ring in. There were other little features and so on, and it was strangely compelling viewing. The theme tune was ELO's 'Sweet Talking Woman'. For ages recently I tried to remember the name of this show, and I recently found out it was called 'Love Call'. Anyway, I'm probably the only one who remembers that show.
