    because despite the amount of drivel you imagine comes out of the states, there's a lot of good stuff in there as well, and Sesame Street was/is up near the top for delivering educational content in a manner which made it easy for kids to soak it up with enthusiasm. It made a great difference to my kids early learning. Essential viewing in my eyes.

    Think yourselves lucky - I didn't have a TV when I was a kid When we did get one I was hooked on Laurel & Hardy, Abbott and Costello and Norman Wisdom

    Come to think of it, that's probably why I have a strange sense of humour

    that's right, me too. sometime in the '60's before the cold light of cathode tube illuminated my mind. there was always the wireless, two way family favourites, the light programme, hilvershum. at least we've still got the shipping forcast and lily bolero.

    I love Crystal Maze, a huuuuge favourite of mine, but I prefer the early episodes with Richard O'Brian as Ed Tudor Pole was a bit of a dipstick and spoilt it for me.

    I agree John, Ed wasn't as good as Richard but it's still a good show ftn have started showing the maze from 1990 with Richard, and IIRC Richard did the first 4 years then Ed did the last two.
