Does anyone remember when channel 5 came out in the 90s but the signal was shit and you could barely see it? I remember being irked as they had alvin and the chipmunks but it was like 50% static

We couldn’t pick it up at our house but we tried for days before giving up. Probably wasn’t worth the effort tbh. But for years I’d look at it in TV Times like some great mystery.

As someone who was inclined towards the artistic works of Shannon Tweed after a trip to the pub, very much so.

I know it’s not that long ago, but terrestrial TV is such antiquated tech now that people saying they remember the launch of Channel 5 sounds so impossibly old. It sounds like “I remember the invention of the spinning mule, the magistrate announced it at a public hanging and we couldn’t believe it”
