Old television programmes


Recommended Posts

They also remade Juke Box Jury in the late 80's. It was hosted by Jools Holland.

They had a "mystery guest" on each show who would be revealed after their song and video had been critiqued. On one occasion a Glenn Medeiros song/video got cruely and mercilessly (and deservedly!) panned by the whole panel (which included Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer) and then the poor lad was wheeled out from behind the scenes to face the jury. It was a cringeworthy situation all round :)

Thank me later

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

Thank you all for coming to my defence! Yes Frank, I did read your post, and I have never seen "Juke Box Jive" - it was probably before my time! ;)

Packing, wot the 'eck is that? Oh, I'll throw a few clothes into my suitcase tomorrow evening before I go to the airport - If that's what you mean! Plane doesn't depart until 9:25pm - so I need to be at the airport about 7:30pm - which means I don't need to leave the house until about 6:45pm!

A friend is on the same flight, so we are meeting for a beer before departure - so i'll probably leave home about 6:00pm. Gets in to Gatwick at 10:10am - anybody want to drive down and chauffeur me to Retford? It is not a drive I look forward to after an overnight flight - but I'll manage. Don't expect a very awake Eric at the Poacher!

Who remembers Hilda Baker and her sidekick, Cynthia, a gormless looking cross dresser? Hilda's catchphrase was 'She knows ya know' They appeared on variety shows, a thing of the past.

Her side kick was played by various people at times including Matthew Kelly at one point, the most famous was the fellow who played 'Our Eli' in Charlie Drakes' shows I can't for the life of me remember his name now.

Well documented on the web how Hylda Baker was highly disliked by members of the profession, said to be quite an unpleasant character.

She also had a voracious sexual appetite, especially for younger men...accounting for the many 'Eli' recruits.

Cheers

Catch phrases like, "Has he been?" and "I must get a little hand for this watch" I think that was Hilda Baker anyway

I'm talking waaaaay back, beefy. This sidekick was on the stage with her, not in any comedy show. The man never said a word, just nodded every now and again.

I am too .The appearance with Matthew Kelly was (I think ) on "The Good Old Days" not long before she retired (To an ex artistes retirement home , other inmates included Jack Douglas. I read an article in one of the Sunday Supplement 15 years or more ago )

Our Eli also used to appear on The Roy Castle Radio Show on early Sunday afternoons in the early 80's, classic sketch (From memory, so it may be wrong) Eli and Castle play kids

Eli ,shouting as if up to a bedroom window.

"Roy.............Roy.........Roy ,Ya comin out T play Roy?"

Roy shouts back down

" No "

" Why Roy, ...why ain'tcha comin out T play Roy"

"I bin a naughty boy"

"Roy, whatcha ,whatcha do that was naughty,....Roy"

" I fed the cat "

" Roy ,thats not naughty, thats not naughty Roy"

"It is , if you feed it to next doors dog"

The speechless one and nodding donkey was Eli Woods, apparently still alive, a cousin of Jimmy James with whom he used to appear as a stooge during his drunk routines, I recall seing them perform at the Theatre Royal many years ago.

Eli was also played by Jimmy Jewell as Hylda Bakers brother in the series 'Nearest and Dearest', remember that!!
