I remember us getting our first TV, we were chuffed to bits..My Mam used to put a cloth over it when we weren't watching it, to keep the dust from getting inside. LOL..

Turn the knob to Number Two for BBC, and Number Nine for ITV.
No BBC Two or Channels Four and Five then, let alone Satellite, Cable and Freeview!

Yes Dave, I do.. I remember Children's hour, think it was on 4-5, " Are you sitting comfortably?"... Dixon of Dock Green, loads of good shows on, back in the day..Well, at least they were good then, some would seem a bit lame today I suppose..
