I must've been the only male fan of there's, or it felt like it. No, I didn't wear the Tartan Troos..

I found Ivor the Engine on DVD, my daughter loves it. Hated Thomas the Tank, no idea.

Loved Pingu too.

I find that The Clangers gets funnier the older you get.

The modern remakes available on the iPlayer, while not as good as the enchanted originals, do not disgrace themselves.

My Mam was watching the Clangers last night saying it was the best thing that was on ! Bagpuss and Ivor the Engine more my early memories . Brian Cant was everywhere . Guys like him and Tony Hart were big parts of your childhood !

William Dunlop, 32.  TT racer.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

A genuinely honourable Conservative politician. I'd love to know what he thought about the current lot.

And when they found our shadows

Grouped around the TV sets

They ran down every lead

They repeated every test

They checked out all the data on their lists

And then the alien anthropologists

Admitted they were still perplexed

But on eliminating every other reason

For our sad demise

They logged the only explanation left

This species has amused itself to death

No tears to cry no feelings left

This species has amused itself to death

And for those that do not know..the man blamed by the Americans for not saving Frost's Battalion at Arnhem.

However, when looked at a little closer a ridiculous accusation.

One 82nd AB soldier called Moffat Burris being the loudest and biggest bullshitter

Not the thread, but is road racing on modern bikes too dangerous?

It has always been dangerous, but as no factory teams take part any more, nobody is pressured to take part.

That’s very sad . He was a regular contributor on Battle of Britain programmes and wider documentaries on the war . Marvellous to hear him articulate his experiences and just epitomised the whole understated heroism and character of those wonderful people . Men like him will never ever be forgotten
