Indeed, the bloke from Eastenders sorted it all out and our heroin despite having sunk to the bottom of the pit for most of the series emerged with a firm grasp of the moral high ground. :extrawink: :smile:

You have more control than us Gloria. :extrawink: Got a bonus though, it meant we didn't have to time shift or record My Yorkshire Farm but could get our weekly injection of feelgood factor from watching a proper family. Definitely good TV.

I was watching Youtube - which guided me into some Harry Enfield comedy sketches for a while - then I went back to TV and found myself at the BAFTA's

It took couple of minutes for me to work out that it was not a spoof. The presenter was one Richard Eeyaye-addio - a total stranger to the hair brush and razor blade - all the others were carefully chosen, and I'd never heard of almost all the candidates. Having no audience at all. and no sound other than from the luvvies didn't help my dilemma.

I have to start paying again for these delights tomorrow. That was enough to make me consider not doing so. :smile:

I understand that completely David but unfortunately it is a licence to have a TV set isn't it. My daughter and her husband did without for a few years but in the end the lure of the big screen dragged them back into the system. I am lucky enough to qualify for the free licence for the time being..... I did watch the World Championship snooker last night.

We watched the last of Peter Kay’s car share, I know it’s been on before but we’ve got to an age now where we’d forgotten most of it.
Watched a bit of the BAFTAs, didn’t enjoy that at all, didn’t know most of them, and really struggle with all the overacting.

No, the days of the old wireless receiving equipment licence are long gone. You only need a licence if you are watching BBC channels or using their on demand services. It's how they are funded and that is the argument really. should they raise their running costs from other streams?

You can own a TV receiver as long as you don't watch BBC stuff. We don't need one for Bosom Friends as we use the smart TV we have for the internet, YouTube, and direct video input for display purposes. We don't have an antenna or dish and we resist the built in on demand.

I'm fairly sure that isn't correct. Need to check the exact words, but I think if the TV is capable of receiving TV signals then a licence is required. I'll look into it.

I think there will be a lot of rebels. :smile:

PS.

- Just checked out the Bafta winners - It's worse than I thought. It's almost a list of programmes I would avoid. Bafta winners

This was where I thought it was a spoof -

Drama series -
The End of The F***ing World Channel 4/Netflix – WINNER

The only show I liked on the whole list was
Race Across the World BBC Two – WINNER

I can't find The Antiques Road Show anywhere. :laugh5:

When I was in the TV trade we were required by law to report the details of anyone who bought or rented a new TV receiver. Radio's were exempt by then (1970's). We were supplied with an official pad which had a carbon copy of each entry. I think we had pre-paid envelopes supplied as well, from memory we did the returns at the end of each month.

'Scots in China'. Now on BBC Scotland, but also on BBC 2 I think. By the guy that does that boring programme called 'Coast'. Shows A Scottish guy - who has 50% of a heavy engineering company - and has been in business in China since 1985. Has much the same view as Chinatyke on the place. Say's "I'd be embarrassed to take someone from Shanghai to Edinburgh airport".

F1 had the most exciting finish I have ever seen. I hope Wendy was watching! As Hamilton said "That was close...."
The last five laps was riveting.
And then there was a dose of Ronnie at the Crucible.

We watched it for just over an hour, and found it so boring we gave up, missed the exciting bit.

Hard luck Gloria!
Last night I dialled in 'Uncle Mort' on Youtube search and spent the evening with Carter, Uncle Mort and the rest of Peter Tiniswood's characters. Pure delight! Have a look for 'I didn't know you cared' and give yourself a vintage treat.
I want to be Uncle Mort when I grow up...
