  1. He used to present Candid Camera.
  2. Other tunnels. Carlton Rd next to what used to be Manvers School and across the road running under Thorneywood. Arnold off Arno Vale. You can walk from Arnold park to Arno Vale along the cutting where the track used to run. There used to be one on the corner next to Clarendon College but don't know if that's still accessible.
  3. There are indeed tunnels from the stone cemetary. I recall a few years ago a drama that was filmed in Nottingham which made use of them.
  4. I think it's a character from Noggin the Nog, don't know his name though.
  5. Yes there is access to the caves at Broad Marsh shoppping centre. Other things to do within an easy walking distance are: The Tales of Robin Hood Brewhouse Yard Museum Nottingham Castle Galleries of Justice
  6. Mollie Sugden it was - also played Nerys Hughes' mum in the Liver Birds !bravo!
  7. First part correct - his mother is better known for her multi coloured hairstyles
  8. That was the one! Here's a resume.. Written by Johnny Speight in the midst of the BBC's Till Death Us Do Part this equally controversial, chaotic and memorable sitcom - ironically, LWT's first in colour - was short-lived. It had to be, such was the high feeling it stirred up, although Speight's undoubted intention, as with Till Death, was to highlight discrimination, not fuel it.Set in the staff canteen and on the factory floor at Lillicrap Ltd, makers of seaside novelties, Curry And Chips starred a blacked-up Spike Milligan as 'Paki Paddy' Kevin O'Grady, who claimed to be Irish on his father
  9. Some I remember: George & the Dragon - Hugh Lloyd & Peggy Mount Never Mind the Quality Feel the Width - John Bluthal (Vicar of Dibley) & Joe Lynch Me Mammy - Milo O'Shea & Yootha Joyce Queenie's Castle - Diana Dors & "Arfur" Mullard Nearest & Dearest - Hylda Baker & Jimmy Jewell From a Birds Eye View - Millicent Martin & Stephen Jones The Likely Lads - James Bolam etc The Liver Birds - Nerys Hughes & Polly James Sykes - can't remember who this one starred!! Please Sir - John Alderton Does anybody remember the one with Eric Sykes & Spike Mil
  10. Who is this and who played his mother on TV?
  11. And he's best known for playing........?
  12. Yet another British comedy great that I saw in panto. Who is he, what was his most famous character and who played the official "Mr Pugh" that he used to annoy at the labour exchange?
  13. Sort of bumbling, accident-prone, affable sort of chap. Bit of a cross between Norman Wisdom and Mr Bean.
  14. Harry Worth. Had the pleasure many years ago of seeing him in panto at the Theatre Royal with IIRC Dickie Henderson.
  15. Becasue they all returned. They all came back to play for Forest again after being sold. The odd one out is Nighel Clough for one of 2 reasons: firstly he didn't return to play for Brian Clough who had retired, and secondly he didn't sign permanently for his second spell - he was only on loan. Of course in recent times Jon Olav Hjelde, Alan Rogers and Des Walker have come back for a second spell.
  16. No I'm relating prodigal son to all of them.
  17. It's Michael Jayston, his picture also used to hang in the green room at the CO-OP Arts Theatre on George Street. Can't place the film without looking it up but I do remember him in A Bit Of A Do and Doctor Who. Also wasn't he the one that discovered the watch that led to the Trotters becoming millionaires in Fools And Horses?
  18. That's what happens when you use Google to give you a Bible reference!!!! Try Luke 15:11-32 (I hope).
  19. Further clue? Here ya go! Luke 15v25-27
  20. I wouldn't disagree with that although this was my favourite....
  21. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are! What a beautiful Pussy you are!' It's Elton Hayes who sang the above song!!
  22. and there was me thinking it was HIM!!
  23. Didn't they stop using the paddling pool when there was that blue-green algae scare a few years ago?

    My Dad

    This is the book that I checked in. If your dad only played for the reserves he won't be listed 'cos someone I went to school with isn't.
