Week #6 – Radio & Television
What was your favourite radio or television show from your childhood? What was the program about and who was in it?
Week 6: This challenge runs from Saturday, February 5 through to Friday, February 11 2011
I have never really been much of television fan, preferring to read, that is still the case. As a child we use to have a black and white television, rather than colour as I guess the amount of use it received was minimum. I did use to watch some Blue Peter, which is a well know children’s programme here in the UK. I also used to watch the Muppets, which I recall was on the television at 5.15pm on a Sunday. Why I recall those fine details are anyones guess.
Now, I still prefer to read, but do like mystery type programmes, Morse, Lewis and Midsomer Murders, gentle murder mysteries nothing grim and especially violent! I am also rather partial to watching the Agatha Christie based programmes, such as Miss Marple and Poiret. I also like the BBC Who Do you think you are programmes which are usually broadcast yearly. Now with Sky Television I can watch most of the repeats and have a genealogy fix to my hearts content. I also like watching Antiques Roadshow and often glean snippets of information from that.
Radio, I rarely listen to the radio, when I do I prefer Radio 2 and Gold which are broadcast here in the UK. Gold especially is good as I can listen on my iphone. For news and current affairs I am a bit of a Sky News fan.
