17/10/2013 at 22:21

Archiepem, yes I remember HOW - just!

Twizzle!!!!

I really liked Out of Town with Jack Hargreaves - such a gentle programme; an old man imparting wisdom. You almost felt as if you were sitting opposite & listening to your grandad. Even the bits about fishing were interesting; purely because he knew how to make a subject come alive. And what a shed he had!!

At the end he sat in the cart & the horse pulled them slowly away.

They'd never make it now - not manic enough & no shouting!!

Earlier in the year in a garden centre (where else?) I found some dvds of the programme - I haven't watched them yet - I'm almost afraid that they won't be as good as I remember.

Archiepem, I remember How - I loved it, and Vision On, and Out of Town.  Fairy, I also remember the horrible singing ringing tree, and EVEN WORSE was a ghastly programme called Sarah and Hoppity about a horrible doll with one leg shorter than the other, and even worse than that, something absolutely terrifying called Twizzle.  I don't think child psychologists had been invented when I was young - my very first foray to Saturday morning cinema club was my last due to the painful experience of being shown 'Old Yeller'.  Dog lovers who have heard of it will understand ....

Hiya Tea....lovely to hear from you 

Why should the girls have all the fun?  What about Joanna lumley in the Avengers?  

17/10/2013 at 23:53

Evening Tea! Lovely to hear from you, hope all ok best wishes to you and your family xx

Verdun, you are displaying too much 'yoof' - don't you remember Diana Rigg?  Or are you the generation that goes all peculiar if anyone mentions Daisy Duke and her performing shorts?

This thread brings back so many memories.

My first dog was called 'Yeller'. He was a cross lab and so like the dog in the film. Ijust looked the film up on YouTube and will watch it again when I've got a big supplies of tissues ready.

Tea, you met David Cassidy

Verdun, I wanted to be Emma Peel..with her "kinky"( as we used to call them ) white boots. Not a tele programme but how about Julie Driscoll..Wheels on Fire song. My H doesn't need much reminding to drool about memories of her.

What about Blake's Seven..did you chaps like Servilan ( dodgy spelling) ? I liked Avon, always doing mean and nasty things. I've seen some re-runs, just love the cardboard scenery.

BUT the best had to be Star Trek. I moved on and The Next Generation is still one fo my favorites, I have the full boxed sets. I won't start talking about the episode with Patrick Stewart in his open at the front silk shirt and jodhpurs, and oh that voice. 

18/10/2013 at 09:24

Kef, I loved star trek (still do) but only with James T Kirk.and all those planets made polystyrene boulders.

18/10/2013 at 09:32

Sara.  Yep Diana Rig too.  Thought of her when I posted.  Agree with Pottie...this thread brings back so many memories.  Full respect to the originator of this thread 

18/10/2013 at 12:20

Ah yes!  ... The Avengers...   Emma Peel in black leather ...  If only we were all in our twenties again... 

Down Boy!!! 

Whoops! Er...
