Re: Live Aid BBC Coverage

You're right, it wasn't really a pompous departure - Collins is often more self-aware/deprecating than he's given credit for. But Kershaw's line did seem to undercut the solemnity of the event quite amusingly. There was an interview with Andy Kershaw fairly recently (I think in the last couple of y...

Re: Memorable non-celebrity gameshow contestants

my favourite was a fatish forigen woman(polish maybe)on the generation game when it came back in the early 90s.she spent just about the whole time laughing her head off leaving brucie to give one of those looks to the audience(several looks I guess)it was hilairious.

Re: Didn't like it much then but like it now.....70's tv

Public Eye - Technically a '60s series but my folks started watching from the Brighton series onwards. Dull as ditch water to a seven year-old but now in my top-ten all time series. Superb! Freewheelers - Another series originating in the 1960s but came to my notice in the '70s. For some reason it ...

Re: Promised Programmes that were never made

Would it really have been different then before? No doubt Marian would've come back because of some reason or plot device? Why was it cancelled, anyway, does anyone know? Well Marian would have been back but not for the majority of episodes - the reason she was written out in "Time of the Wolf" is ...

absolute nonsense about the stranglers and walk on by.their version is great and they still do it live these days.

Re: 'Eldorado' - was it really all that bad?

i always thought if they had done a crossover with eastenders,that could have maybe saved it.especially if an important story on ee had continued in eldorado.

Re: ATV - What's left to release?

It'd be nice to think that there's more chance of 'A Sharp Intake' being released,following the very recent discovery of the pilot-one of the series 'The Sounds of Laughter'.A friend's told me that one or two cast members might not be keen on the show being released.Anyone know for sure? I believe ...

Re: quatermass 2,the first to have 2 in the title?

i've always wondered,is quatermass 2 the first show/film to be a sequel,which uses 2 in the title? cant think of any others. Yes, as far as UK cinema audiences and many others around the world are concerned - but the film went under the title Enemy From Space in the US. So as far as US audiences ar...
