On the radio this morn the talk,has been about life changing events in our childhood. ...Viz.programmes on the tv 

For me Casey jones, Popeye and the Magic Roundabout bring back memories.  I even had my own words for Casey.  

On the comedy front Ever Decreasing Circles was brilliant.  I was supposed be like the guy Martin was jealous of....can't remember his name for mo.  

So folks,.....childhood tv and best comedy from the past?

Verdun fun thread

The man from UNCLE was my fav. Closely followed my Mr.Ed the talking horse, every time the wife shouted "Wilber" I used to chuckle. Did like SKIPPY..the bush kangaroo & Flintstones. Land of the Giants, first thing I saw in colour.

Comedy..Sooo many..today I'd say Open All Hours..or maybe not..Steptoe & Son..I could go on and on.

When I was a child we had an old black and white telly that you had to thump to stop the picture going down! Then when I was about 12, wondrous, we got a colour one.

When very small, I liked Bill and Ben the Flower Pot men. Comedy - Topcat, Popeye and Huckleberry Hound. We weren't allowed to watch lots of TV, but Blue Peter had parental approval! I wrote to Pussycat Willem once (shows my age) and Valerie Singleton wrote back.

Then I liked anything with horses in it, like Fury and Champion the Wonder Horse.

When I was older and married I liked the Good Life.

I'm now going to be singing the Tra-La-La song all day

I loved Champion the wonder horse too, but I loved Count Duckular and Ivor the Engine when the dragons appeared. Watched the last two with my son.

If the lovely Geoff Hamilton is a childhood memory, flowering rose, then you must be quite young. If only............ he was too young and fit to die.

Sorry to hear of latest development Tea drinker - best wishes for the future.

This Forum is becoming very odd lately. Time to sit back and think about it.

15/10/2013 at 18:47

Tea.  Surely you can still post on hello forkers?  Let us know how you are, etc

(I suspect things are going on with tea and neighbours that have taken a turn for the worst.  Nothing to do,with,the forum)

Verna it was Paul played by Peter Egan. Rather easy on the eye.
