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.

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.

What was that kids prog from the 70's? All the electric stopped and everyone lived like the dark ages. In the end some people found a cave with a giant crystal that turned out to be Merlin! I think

I have found it, I'm confusing two programmes. The programme about the electric stopping is called 'The Changes'

The one about the cave and Merlin, is called the Children of the Stone.
