    Just 10 years ago

    Always reminds me of this footage from the Top Gear programme.

    Why is PC determined to destroy the world

    Ironically, I was just watching Harry Enfield's 'Women, know your limits', about the inferiority of women. I don't think it can be shown now.

    Memories of Days gone by

    Only yesterday I was reminiscing an event that occurred in the early 70s. I was at a funfare (might be Battersea park). I was probably about 7 years old. I recall been given a bean bag or a tennis ball. I threw it at a circular silver target and hit it. Suddenly, this beautiful blonde woman in a...

    Gentle Comedies

    Thanks, I will have to listen to this. After watching the Carry on Films in dvd, I use to listen to the commentary to the films. The invited guests were members of the cast. I recall when Jim dale did a commentary. He talked about Kenneth Williams. There was a joke he related that went something...

    Why no farewell from LOTSW?

    Ok, so I just finished watching the last episode of LOTSW: series 32 titled 'How Not to Cry at a Wedding.' I had never seen this episode before. As I started watching the programme I was thinking about what the final scene would be like. Ideas that came to mind included: watery eyes on set; a...

    Another book worth reading

    How interesting. I purchased the complete collection in July 2020 and began watching the episodes on the 29th of July. I have almost completed the entire dvd collection; only 3 episodes remaining, including the Pilot: Funerals and Fish. All will be viewed in under five and a half months...

    See ya Compo

    So, clearly, Peter Sallis was a very talented actor, because it looked so genuine.

    See ya Compo

    Just watched series 29, the episode It's Never Ten Years, which was a tribute to Compo, showing previous clips of him in the show. This reminded me of the episode in which 'See Ya Compo' is displayed on the hillside. If I can recall, in the episode Clegg is escorted to the hill-top to be shown...

    See ya Compo

    Just watched in series 29 the episode It's Never Ten Years, which showed clips of compo. So, it did take me back to the episode in which they displayed 'See Ya Compo' on the hill. If I can recall, Clegg is escorted to the hill to show him the display as a surprise. I was wondering if Peter...

    Snow - Where?

    Since we had the dreaded Smart meter installed; if it snows in London then the meter will hit the jackpot. Not looking forward to snow, sadly.

    Confused on this one

    I heard somewhere that Roy Clark was approached by a BBC producer, who asked if he can make a series about 'three old men.'

    Confused on this one

    But to play a dvd you need a TV. If you possess a TV then I thought it was necessary to have a BBC TV licence. I think the licence will need to be reviewed by government because the ratings for watching BBC channels have decreased substantially due to subscription channels.

    Why so few car owners?

    I always wondered, if the final scene was in a pub, would the actors be drinking genuine beer? or do the rules apply; no alcoholic drinks permitted during shooting (bar Charles Hawtrey.)

    Confused on this one

    The series chose the top 10 sit-coms 'as voted by the audience who phone or text.' There was probably a charge for this.

    Why so few car owners?

    Barry always appeared to have different car. I'm not saying any more Than that!

    Gentle Comedies

    Robin's nest was a spin-off from Man About the House. He qualified as a chef. A series I am currently watching that I recall viewing in the early 2000s is The Mighty Boosh. Warning, it's a bit nuts, so I advise watching one episode per session.

    Anybody a Beatles fan?

    Brilliant song. I love the scene where they play the song on a roof.

    Why so few car owners?

    But the series is primarily about three old men and their adventures around the Yorkshire peak district. A car would ruin the plots.

    Gentle Comedies

    I watch a little of it, only because David Jason is cast in the show; otherwise, it wouldn't see the light of day.

    Why was he chosen as the vicar?

    I am not certain, but I heard that the revenue from the success of The Omen allowed Star. wars to be created.
