Well this wasn't the blog I was expecting to post but hey....
The Radio Times has been asking if TV is better now or in the past. This is always a daft question because we all rememeber the good stuff and forget the abject dross that was on. Also we forget that our tastes change and programmes we liked then will appear terribly dated now. The truth is probably that Theodore Sturgeon's law, 90% of everything is crud, is still true.
Anyway there weren't many of us in chat last night so Jan and I engaged in some nostalgia... the joys of you tube is that there are loads of clips of old TV programmes so here are some memories of my childhood.
So I present you with Tales of the Riverbank
oh some woodentops
A bit of Thunderbirds
Ah the Clangers
and a classic The Tomorrow People (not the American version!!)
School Holidays seemed to be dominated by The Flashing Blade
and we'll finish with
Danger Mouse (look out for the cartoon hog at 58seconds!!)
