Old television programmes


Recommended Posts

Who remembers Crackerjack? Everytime they said that word, the audience yelled 'Crackerjack' Eamonn Andrews compared it. The game was always Double or Drop, everytime the kids got a question right, they had a prize put in their hands, a cabbage if it was wrong. The consolation prize was a 'Crackerjack' pencil. Don't think the kids would be happy with that nowadays. Eamonn also did This is your Life. Other programs - Bootsie and Snudge, Steptoe and Son, Car 54 Where are You? The Good Life, Open all Hours, Palladin, Morecambe and Wise, The Good Life, and there was a dancing program, was it Come Dancing, with Victor Sylvester and his orchestra. They always had a sequence dance segment, which always fascinated me that they just missed each other when crossing over!

Thank me later     

This is a great website. http://www.turnipnet.com/whirligig/tv/children/whirligig/whirligig.htm

Watch With Mother was nowhere near as good as Listen With Mother , in my personal opinion. Not that I ever listened with my mother: she was in the kitchen washing the lunch pots prior to our goin

Regarding Stu's posting ,is that Adam Adamant? (never saw it, before my time, I just remember Francis Mathews was in a show of that name and that looks like him.)

The other is The Man from Uncle. Ilya Kuriyakin (A guess as to the spelling) was part of UNCLE (UNited Command of Law Enforcement, or something like that) and they were an international peace keeping organisation fronted by an Englishman, Mr Waverly.

How about old Alf Garnett in 'til death us do part.

They probably couldn't run that show in these days, "Silly old Moo!" "Scouse git"! etc.

The US made a watered down version of it called "All in the Family" Alf's character was a guy called Archy Bunker. Not a patch on Alf.

They have done that quite a bit here with British shows re-named but they never come close to the originals. IMHO.

U.N.C.L.E. - United Nations Command for Law and Enforcement!

A common trivia question here!

Isn't Muffin the Mule a sexual offence?

And then Leslie Crowther took it over but little Peter Glassier stayed as the 'stooge'

I think when I started watching Crackerjack it was presented by Ed Stewart and then Stu "I could crush a grape" Francis!

My time was Leslie Crowther, (oh how I wanted one of those cabbages for me mam).

Stu Francis:

'I could tear a tissue'

'I could demolish a doll's house'

Another one they couldn't show now is love thy neighbor. Was it Rudolph Walker who now appears in Eastenders.

Some very racist remarks.

That was a brilliant program eh snowflake?

It actually ridiculed racism.

True they darent show it today, sadly

Got the old grey matter going and remembered a few more progs. Animal Magic with Johnny Morris. He would talk to the animals. Alan Whicker went all over the world, Armand and Michaela Dennis did On Safari. The cooking programs included Phillip Harben and Johnnie and Fanny Craddock. Phil Silvers was Sergeant Bilko, and lastly, The Grove Family.

The Ghost and Mrs Muir. I was probably the only one who watched it!!!. Starring Hope Lange, I can't remember who played the Ghost but he was an old sea captain stuck in limbo (I think)

Incidentally Harry Nilson (Of 'I can't live, if living is without you, fame ) got his big break on this late 60's show.

It was redone starring two 'comedians' Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer and as you say it wasn't as good

Any way shouldn't you be packing you got a long way to go tommorow?
