Do you remember took five minutes for the TV to warm up?

Post by tonyp » 10 Apr 2012, 14:07

The programs were all in black'n'white. On top of the TV there was an antenna that you had to jiggle around to get the station you wanted? You only got 2 channels back then. BBC and ITV. You'd ask "What's on the other side?" The picture you got depended on the weather conditions. No remote controls.
I can even remember when it was only the BBC. In fact I can remember when we didn't have TV.
I can remember the Posh playing pre-season games the Possibles v the Probables before crowds of 6 or 7 thousand.
Anybody else remember the good old days?

I can remember when all the blokes in our street used to cram into our front room to watch the boxing ( 1951) : we were so "posh" that we had a TV and an inside toilet.

I do remember going to a friends house where they had an outside dunny at the end of the garden with a big wooden box seat, I was led to believe there was either a bucket beneath or a massive hole.

My Auntie and Uncle lived in a farmhouse. The bath was under a lift-up work surface in the kitchen.

I hated having bath at my Auntie's! Image

We used to dream of having a bucket!. Ours was a massive hole (shared by the three neighbours!!) which was emptied every so often.
