Is Forces TV on Ch.97?

I did manage to catch a Two in Clover the Sid James/Victor Spinetti comedy on Forces TV...but Forces TV has gone again from my menu.

Quite a lot of channel number shuffling going on at the moment, CBS Justice (The Fugitive/Perry Mason etc ) is changing number next week
and Horror... Star Trek etc has moved to ch.68

I retuned last night to get SkyArts and noticed that TalkingPictures had moved which meant I had to edit the timer recordings. TPTV was 97 on my setup and moved to 99. 97 seemed to be Dave Ja Vu for me.

No Chan 96, 97 was a 3hr a day early hours of the morning reservation for an ITV channel, I believe was just a place holder.

In London TPTV is still on chan. 81 for me.

London Live Ch.8
Seem to have got hold of the Harry Towers Archive..Harry Alan Towers (for those not familiar) was a businessman that just happened to see the emerging television scene in the 50s as a new business opportunity, he knocked out lots of stuff, serials like The Gay Cavalier(now lost) etc and various B pictures (shot with television cameras for quick turn around) which if he could not sell to cinema he then sold to the new ITV as plays. After the 50s he seemed to have got bored and gone off to do something else.

Anyway London Live has been showing the Towers' series The Mantovani Show a wonderfully odd 50s music show curio with notable guests. Which does not seem to be listed anywhere in the usual places so perhaps it did better abroad? Apparently 39 episodes made.

TPTV start showing Upstairs Downstairs in early December

TPTV will probably be showing the B/W episodes of "UpDown", not shown in previous repeats on ITV4.

If only some of the other channels would get over their phobia of it!
