Just watched an episode of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased ) on ITV 4.

Watching it brought back lots of good memories-guess it was made in the 70's.

What are some of your favourite TV shows from yesteryear.

I go back a long time, it would have to be The Avengers in the 1960s. Patrick Macnee with Honor Blackman and later Diana Rigg. I wasn't so keen on the much later Linda Thorson.

Apparently the FIRST series partneship was Patrick Macnee and Ian Hendry but I don't remember that series. And the New Avengers from the mid 70s with Macnee, Joanna Lumley and Gareth Hunt are just a vaguer memory.

How long have you got? Very Happy

Thinking in black & white, I'd say The Untouchables, Outer Limits & Twilight Zone, Bilko, Route 66, Sunset Strip and Highway Patrol ( remember, it's not the car that dangerous - it's the driver... )and definitely The Avengers ( still one of my favourite pieces of music )

The Early Star Trek were brillant. Only Fools And Horses were good too.

Animal Country with Sarah Kennedy. I remember watching that show on a Sunday night before tea on a Sunday night in the early nineties. Rolling Eyes

Busman's Holiday was also another favourite of mine when I bunked off school.

Ah yes, Jill Browne, the blonde one. The fifties version of Lesley Ash. Can't remember the name of Desmond's character, but he was pretty good looking by my standards at that time.

I have fond memories of the original (yes, the original) series of Dr. Who, Top of The Pops (superb at the beginning but quickly got naff), Steptoe & Son, Till Death Us Do Part, etc., but........ most of all in the 60s.........The Avengers.

The best thing about The Avengers was the opening title sequence and music. In my opinion, this has never, ever been bettered. Superb. I never understood what the hell any of the episodes was about but it never mattered - just great telly!
