Had to Google Peter Gilmore, he looked ok in picture with Una years ago, but in Onedin Line I think he looked like Brian Blessed. I'll get my tin hat on.


Whiskers not your thing then KEF?..............


Not really Gilly, can I take my hat off now?

This is such a lovely thread for all of us who are 27. It's bringing back so many happy memories

Wonderful memories, remembered a series Rich man Poor man. 

Andi'm not 21 yet 


Break 23...I am shocked!  You are older than 27?  Ha ha. 

I don't know that programme. 

A lot of nostalgia for me involves cars, not so much the tv.  My sports cars......Austin Healy sprite. Wire wheels, British racing green and the arrogance of youth.....a poser I guess, with a denim hat, pipe ( I could  not keep alight) and loud, loud music from a soft top motor ...rain or shine the top remained down    However, it always seemed sunny   Had a few sprites, spitfires, etc.

Sorry break23 never heard of it. I mentioned barbed wire, and I know it was remade a few years ago ( not as good as the original) 

Will google raging to see if it jogs my memory.


We've been watching Poldark on DVDs. Still enjoy the story.

Liked the first Bouquet of Barbed Wire Series.

Break 23, I haven't heard of it either and the cast list that google brought up didn't jog my memory either.  I loved Bouquet, and was totally addicted to the Forsyte Saga ... way before Brideshead or Downton Abbey.  Someone mentioned a ghost one I couldn't remember a little while back, anybody else remember Randall and Hopkirk deceased?  And Verdun, when you had your sports car did you model your image on Jason King?  Not necessarily the caftan!

Googled raging, Break23, sorry didn't tell you much about it, didn't jog any memories at all. 

Yes remember randell 

Sara, think I had SImon Templar......the the back of my mind.  So, I am older than 27.    Don't recall ever watching it too much tho! 




For me.. Top Cat, Hung Kung Fooey, Bagpuss, Magic roundabout, The Clangers,

and comedy.. dont remember being able to watch much of that.. bless this house, rising damp, love my neighbour.. had to watch the adults programmes gorwing up...didnt get a choice back then and we only had the one tv and that was black and white lol... would cringe at Benny Hill and Kenny Everett... and the likes..


oh yes and rubard and custard.. how could i forget them.. also remember CHampion the wonder horse.. loved horses and also watched black beauty when in my teens.. anything horsey...

Gardeningfantic,  I loved Benny Hill.  Still crack his jokes   I remember my dad having a dog called Trigger and when benny  hill sang his famous "fastest milkman in the west" song he mentioned a horse called Trigger and our dog would shoot  his ears up.   He was a very funny comedian but, like many others, was a very sad man in his private life.

Benny Hill used to come into the bank that I worked in, he was very quiet, polite & always smart & well-dressed.

I once cashed a cheque for Windsor Davies the Sgt Major from it "Ain't Half Hot Mum" - his voice was just as loud in the bank as it was in the series when shouting at the other soldeirs!!

We really liked Dave Allen too, he had such a quirky sense of humour. My H recently helped carry my aunt's coffin & the problem with having watched so many Dave Allen programmes is that he had visions of all sorts of things happening.




Back in the 80s friends asked their boys what to call the house they were moving to  .......... Willo' the wisp was their answer, and Willo' the wisp is what their house is called

Awww, thats cute, I wonder how the boys feel now. Good prog tho

Good job I didn't ask my boys

Not too far from me is a house called Bin Robin.  Luckily the occupant looks too fat to  exert himself too much.

My neighbour has called their son Ben, their surname is Down. The sad thing is they did it on purpose
