Research throws up some wonderful distractions, don't it?
Somehow being in your 80's doesn't seem like an advanced age anymore....

I was amused to see that One of Hancock's rep company, Totti Truman Taylor is listed on Wiki under the catagory of "possibly living people"...

As mentioned on the radio board, Denis Norden at 91. Great to hear him again.

The Great Egg Race was mentioned elsewhere, so I think Heinz Wolff deserves a mention at 85.

Tonight's (16 December 2013) edition P.M. on BBC Radio 4 will include a feature on the feud between the two ladies, for those interested in such things. I am, and will be listening...

Slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I was watching The Goodies' Kitten Kong this evening and it occurred to me that all of the animals featured in the episode would have passed away decades ago.

Until the scene where Graeme is taking Colin the tortoise for a walk. Due to a tortoise's long life-span, it is quite feasible that Colin the tortoise is still alive.

My only contribution to this thread is now no longer "still with us" having passed away earlier this year.

It's a little scary to think that the likes of Des O'Connor and Michael Parkinson belong in this thread.

It's alarming when you realise that everyone you remember from when you were growing-up is either dead or over 70!
I was relieved the other day when I heard that Peter 'Herman' Noone is neither of the above.

He sang the hits just the same when we saw him recently in the 'Solid Silver 60's Show'.

Well known also as the Grange Hill caretaker. He used to be a familiar site around my town but I haven't seen him for a few years now.

Roger Moore has been mentioned a couple of times during the radio commentary from Wimbledon. 88 years old (gasp). Sir John Hurt has also been in the crowd, but I guess these days 76 isn't seen as old.

Private F, I am thinking of going to that show just to see him, does Peter sing many songs?

It's very unnerving and really makes one think of one's own mortality.

He was on last and, with the earlier performing Dave Berry a close second, was the star of the show. Sang for about 30mins including 'I'm into something good', 'Somethings happening', 'Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter' (which I didn't know but liked) and 'Silhouettes'. I was sure he would finish with 'A kind of hush' - but we had to slip out to catch the last bus home!
