Such a classic! I'm tempted to go raid the cupboards for old videos! Big grin Let me think... what else was there...?
Does anyone remember Pigeon Street? Bertha? Button Moon? Oh, and I just about caught the tail end of Rainbow.

I was born in 1987 so most of these were still around when I was old enough to appreciate television haha.

Anyone remember Trapdoor?

The funny thing about that test card. I worked in electrical retailling here in Oz in the '70s, the months before colour TV transmission started here (Mar 1 1975).
In those months leading up up to CTV transmissions the only things that could be colour cast were outside broadcast sports events and the colour test card early in the mornings. We had people lining up outside the store in the mornings to see that little girl and her clown, just to experience colour TV.
A funny thing was receiving complaints from customers viewing tennis on CTV for the first time... since they played at school in the 50's-60's the balls had changed from white to green/yellow.. everything else was fine but the balls were the wrong colour.

I met the guy that played Mr Bronson in real life. Came to a weekend meet of a group I was a member of. Very nice chap, brought me a few pints.

So sad he passed away last year.

OK, I know, I wasn't exactly born in the 80s and I don't recognise most of those but I did enjoy Metal Mickey (along with Metal Mickey himself, Irene Handl was a star  Smile ) and Terrahawks ("Always expect the unexpected"). Yes, they were "after my time", too, but I still enjoyed them.  embarrassed

29 Kieron747 : OK, then this one must take some of you back. I'll just say 'Pob'? Anyone remember 'Pob's programme? ' And I'll just say my favourite Dr Who incarnati
30 Kieron747 : Michael Sheard was a fantastic British actor. Who can forget his role in 'Empire Strikes Back'? Also, little known amongst many people, he starred in

37 Trekster : Yea, stuff the running and jumping, I wanted the sim. Very annoying at the mo, cause where I am training I walk past the building with the BA sims in

42 Post contains images Banco : I am comfortably younger than those two. Nice to see they let you out of the play-pen long enough to post, Kirkie.
43 Post contains images Gkirk : Just keep telling yourself that Granted, you are comfortably thinner than both Skidmarks and JGPH1A, but agewise, I think not
44 Post contains images Banco : I bloody am! Much to my horror, Cornish continually reminds me that I am one month older than him. I console myself with the thought that he appears
45 Gkirk : What a successful life Cornish has had then, over 60 years of being a ladytea boy
