Looking forward to a bit of Stingray. From memory it starts off a little infantile in places but soon sheds that ahead of the leap to Thunderbirds.

Despite having both of these shows on dvd,is wonderful to know that they are being broadcasted again.
Was watching the channel London Live at hospital earlier and they showed an episode from The Prisoner, "The Schizoid Man".
Again,have it on DVD and VHS but hadn't seen it for years and was absolutely lovely to watch tonight,out of the blue.
I think classic TV that we all grew up with has that power to just make you feel better about life etc.

I'm off work today,back tomorrow,and have just been watching a great film on this channel;"Rubber Racketeers" (1942).
I love the movies this channel shows,they are old forgotten classics.

Agree. I'd never heard of Mr. Winkle Goes to War before but have recently watched it three times on Talking Pictures TV. It stars Edward G. Robinson in a light hearted role. A wonderful film.
