Sad news indeed, always enjoy watching the hairy bikers and they have just been showing a programme around this patch.

R.I.P.

Always came across as a genuine and interesting bloke, different to so many TV chefs. RIP.

Really likeable bloke, very sad to hear he'd passed away.

Any mention of the Hairy Bikers always reminds me of Stuart Maconie's anecdote. He interviewed the pair very early on, when their first TV series was about to be broadcast. They had an enjoyable chat but, when they left the radio studio, Maconie felt a little sorry for them because he was certain (in 2006) that TV food programmes were on the way out. :kolobok_biggrin:

its crazy watching the old re runs of bullseye these days - looks so rushed to pack it all in to 25mins -the audience were 90% typical coach trips from the old folks sheltered housing and most likely all dead now- the contestants were 95% white as was the audience as well. and did anyone ever "settle in" "take their time" or listen to tony?

see you later undertaker - in a while necrophile

They churn game show episodes out pretty fast these days too, but the production companies have got much slicker at disguising it.

Still, at least the audience are somewhere warm for a few hours without having to pay for it.

Former Halifax RLFC left wing Keith Williams (heritage number 679). His long-standing club record eight tries in a game came in November 1957 against Dewsbury. That season, Williams ran in tries in 11 consecutive matches.

Fax tweet: Halifax Panthers are saddened to hear of the death of former player Keith Williams. He made 154 appearances between 1956-63, scoring 89 tries and 47 goals, including holding a club record for tries in a game with 8. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. RIP.

Eric Carmen 74

Sad news, "Hungry Eyes" and "All By Myself" are two monster tunes that he wrote and performed.

RIP Eric.

Marcello Gandini, designer of the sort of cars that ended up on Athena posters. Think of the Lamborghini Countach or Miura, the Alfa Romeo Carabo concept or the rally legend that was the Lancia Stratos.

Veteran Aussie Rugby League journalist Ian Heads, aged 81.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2024/mar/26/ian-heads-death-tribute-bio-nrl-illness-rugby-league-week

One of just two writers inducted to the Rugby League Hall of Fame, Heads helped shape the way Rugby League was viewed for nearly half of the code’s existence in this country. The wordsmith’s historical books gave weight to the game’s past and he was honoured with an Order of Australia Medal.

I don't watch or listen to the news that much so this sad news has passed me by a bit.

"Make me smile (Come up and see me)" is one of the truly great seventies number one hits and instantly recognisable as soon as it starts. But, of course, there was so much more to the great man than just that one song.

RIP Steve Harley.
