    Whatever happened to......?

    Had a look at the link Stuart, thank you, but don't think I'd buy one from him. Wonder how much they are nowadays. Have no idea where the Ocean is so can't comment, and I don't mean the seaside !!

    Whatever happened to......?

    I meant the bloke selling the hot dogs, (or donkey's plonkers as my mate called them ! When he set out to work a stint, he always used to take clean, wet facecloth in a poly bag). Never asked him what he would do if he wanted the toilet. Another thing, they never worried about being robbed. B.

    Still one at Ocean, but don't know if he has a cart, I'd imagine they got driven off the streets by Environmental Health https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/nottingham-news/ocean-nightclub-hot-dog-seller-2805986

    When you talk about Hand Washing Beekay, are you alluding to your own personal hygiene or that of the vendors?

    Whatever happened to......?

    Thanks Beekay, I don`t know what the technical term is, but the cartoon morphs into a selection of other cartoons which do have sound.

    Whatever happened to......?

    Talking of whatever happened to.....Does anyone remember the hot dog sellers who used to frequent around the city centre, with their little push carts? Bags of bread rolls and tins of frankfurters, fried onions if you were lucky. I assume they were heated by calor gas. Nowhere to wash ones hands etc. My mate used to have a cart and he said it was quite lucrative, till you were moved on by Plod.

    Got sound on mine GD., never realised it a cartoon though. Told you some clever clogs would put me right. Cheers Brew. Your right about Sparky, was well ahead of its time. Beekay.

    Whatever happened to......?

    Thanks Brew, a minor irritation for what appears to be a Musical------there is no sound!

    Three unshaven Corbyn wannabe lookalikes. The tramps round here look less scruffy.

    Gods gift to entertainment, or so he thinks !

    In the Clarkson days, Top Gear had by far the largest audience of any programme on BBC2 - in the region of 5-6 million, when any other BBC2 programme would be pleased to get 2 million. And as Brew mentioned, those programmes also generate a massive amount of income for the BBC through licensing deals, programme sales, and merchandising. Top Gear back then was one of the few programmes which put a lot more money back into the BBC than it ever cost to make.

    When they kept calling him Paddy I thought it was a nickname. Like Lord Mayfield I'd never heard of the guy.. Then again I've never heard of Guy Martin either...
  22. Brew

    Top Gear

    Because so far the programme has generated revenue far in excess of it's costs.... so far.

    Out and about with Compo

    Looking forward to your next photos Compo. They are stunning. It must be really beautiful up there but I'll bet it's a bugger in winter. B.

    I'd never heard of him until Top Gear. I'm not quite sure what he's supposed to be. Certainly not a comedian. I don't want the programme to be a comedy show. I want to be informed. If I want comedy I come on this site!

    That paddy McGuiness seems to get on everything thats going. Don't matter what the programme is he fancies himself as an expert. Why does he find it necessary to shout all the time. Is he now a motoring journalist ?
