    Dunno that one. The thing that scared me the most was Hammer House of Horrors. and Arthur C. Clarks Mysteries.


    I used to love Not the Nine O'clock News. Rowan Atkinson was such a geek in that. I thought he looked sexy in Blackadder.

    Most of you will not have seen the brilliant video to David Lee Roth's version of Just a gigolo. It's hilarious.

    The relevance is that it is set in a TV studio, with DLR as the presenter. It starts off with a cod-interview section which ends up with a sort of channel-ident bit finishing with DLR shouting "...on DA-A-AVE TV!!!" (David Lee Roth - geddit?)

    That was - 20 years ago? And now there really is a Dave TV.

    Hugh Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub.

    And speaking of Dibble - "OK, TC - what's going on here?" "Well hullo, Officer Dibble! How nice of you to drop by!"

    Edge of Darkness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I mainly remember it for a marvellously-OTT performance from Joe Don Baker as a CIA agent.

    It's dated well - some of the issues it raised (Gaia / environmentalism, loony right-wing American politicos) are even more relevant now than then.

    But the absolute best political TV series of the 1980s was Yes Minister / Yes Prime Minister - it's almost difficult to believe how relevant it still is, 25 years on. And how much it now looks like a documentary rather than a satirical comedy...

    Indeed and David McCallum too. Freaky Sci-fi madness.

    how old is your daughter ? My daughter was not too bothered by Trumpton either but she is only 2. She loves the Muppet Show though , so do i of course, its far better than most "adult" tv nowadays Compare "Big Brother" and "The Muppet Show"...er...no contest

    Tikkabilla is almost exactly like Play Away and she likes that too.

    She's nearly 9 now. In her favour, she loves Rentaghost so there's hope for her yet.

    First one that always springs to mind for me is the one about the WWI soldier's ghost in the railway station. Great series, can't imagine anything like it being made nowadays, with its glacial pacing, impenetrable plots and minimal cast. Stick it on BBC4 and it'd be high art.
