Does anyone apart from me remember the Ping Wings?  They were penguins that lived in a water butt when I was really little, so about '63 or '64, I guess - we lived in Brighton at the time and I think programmes were regional at the time.


Don't think I ever saw Ping Wings or The Adventure Game.

Gilly who did you like was it Napoleon or David McC ( don't think I can spell Illya or Kuriyakin ) ?  I liked the smarmy Napoleon. 

Tea, I'd still be on cloud9. Bet that other bloke was his mate Sam ...saddo here again! Daydreamer was my fav' song.

Think after all that Cassidy recalling I could do with a Vulcan mind meld, or a memory wipe.



I remember the Ping Wings, but not in detail - long ago. We lived in Horley, so in between London and Brighton.

I liked Illya (David McC). The producers got Napoleon to appeal to women, but the women mostly liked Illya!

Just watching the news on bbc1, David Essex, still got a lovely smile. Didn't see it all but he said David Cassidy was a bit strange. Think he meand now not sure.

Busy, i lived near Riegate when i was little. My sister lives in Horley


Just Googled David Cassidy, he certainly hasn't aged well! Shame, such a pretty young man, now looks more like that drunken ex footballer, can't remember his name.

Lol which one, there's so many drunken ex footballers Sue 


sg lily, what a coincidence! I lived in Reigate until I was 11, then we moved to Horley, where my sister still lives!

The potty gardener

Ohh Charlie  .....I loved the Beiderbecke tapes.

What a coincidence I'm watching NCIS at the moment with David McCallum


Archiepem I too remember HOW. It was with carol vorderman when I watched and Fred, something can not think of his last name. If anyone knows.

I can not belive nobody has said Rainbow, I keep hearing the tune now on tv its being used on an advert.

Anyone remember button moon? Portland Bill? Raggy Dolls?



Z-Cars, Beverly Hill Billies, Lassie, all  in black and white, oh so long ago!

The potty gardener

How with Carol was the time it was reintroduced as How 2.Originally it was Jack Hargreves ,Fred Dinenage.Jon Miller and Bunty James . Another with good old Jack



Potty, thanks I now know who Jack H is / was.


This thread is showing our ages. I must be around the same age as Swiss Sue and older than Verdun. Some of the programmes are totally unfamiliar, must be people younger than me or in 69 - 73 nurse training, no time for TV, mid 80s moved to France so no English TV until satellites got going.

Men age more slowly than the women do so I'm getting younger in comparison every year.............oops!    I'll get my coat.  

Agree with you Swiss Sue - Z-cars , in the early sixties, featuring young actors, Colin Welland, Brian Blessed, and Judith Dench - it was about the only programme that dragged me away from girls and football!


Verdun get your coat & hat !
