  1. Although we grew up an ocean apart I can identify with all of this! We were a bit behind you with TV channels. Only one (BBC) until 1955 when along came ITV. Because I lived in very remote countryside in Wales, we didn’t get our first TV until 1960 and couldn’t get ITV for another couple of years.

      Thanks for posting this, We got our first TV when I was 5 years old in 1952, and TV was in it’s infancy. But what great shows were on at the time and many were done live! Speaking of BBC, I do watch that channel now and then and enjoy it.
