Wow, Ron Pickering’s had his catchphrase on DiS twice this week now!

I just found CBBC programmes were much better. Knightmare and Behind the Bike Sheds are practically the only CITV programmes I remember watching. Didn’t like anything Cosgrove-Hall did.

Used to be a massive clash between me and my younger brother over the TV. He wanted to watch He-Man on ITV and I wanted to watch Fonz and the Happy Days Gang on BBC1. Question of who got home from school first, really. Anyway, I know which of those two TV shows has stood the test of time…


#123

…and one of the reasons I hated Cosgrove-Hall was because they made this horrible teapot witch who scared me out of my wits…


#124

Can’t believe so many of you pencil necks didn’t like He-Man.

You guys are morally bankrupt.


#125

He-Man had nothing on this:


#126

Yeah He-Man wasn’t a 30 year old man trying to score High School chicks.


#127

To be fair, Henry Winkler was 35 by this point.

Geordie Racer was definitely part of the schools TV stuff. Think we also had quite a bit of Ghost Writer at school as well.


#129

Just like the film


#130

Didn’t it have Danny John-Jules in it as well?


#131

I loved Geordie Racer! I seem to remember our teacher bringing in a load of stotties to try and teach us about Geordie culture. We also had the blocky BBC-micro computer game


#132

I think you might be right


#133

Yeah, he was Barrington the Rastafarian merry man. Totally forgot he was in it!


#134

That was probably Dark Towers, one of the Look And Read programmes (others were Geordie Racer, Fairground, Badger Girl, The Boy From Space etc)
