Our Tune !! Lots of tears ....
Our tune is still on in the morning around 8 30ish not sure who does it now tho
Fairygirl..........confusion due to age
I meant Peter Gilmore who played James Onedin......good job you are only 28 your memory is better than mine!......
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
Verdun, I know you started this thread off as childhood memories but does anyone remember an adult serial called A Raging Calm? Never thought to google it before a few moments ago. Over the years, when friends and family bemoan all the rubbish that's on TV today and we remember past programmes. I mention A Raging Calm and am met with total blanks. Because I have just googled it I now know it was made in l974 and was one of the best serials ever made, on line with A Bouquet of Barbed Wire. So, is there anyone out there who remembers A Raging ........? There have been times when I began to wonder if it was a figment of my imagination. I have to admit to being older than 27.
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 Saint....at 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.
My boys loved Super Ted
