Thing is, because Tiswas is now seen as cool and swap shop now seen as a bit naff, more people watched Tiswas

I was always a Tiswas lad.

Did you not confess lately that you were a Space 1999 fan too, Jimmy?

Our Saturday mornings must've been identical.

I did indeed. Loved that one too.

Watchdog covering stories like an independent car dealer selling cars with dodgy wipers and worn brake discs for around a 1000, and sending a girl who looks about 20 to claim that chemists sell diet pills to under 18s. Wish they would man up and go for Boots and Arnold Clark in a big way instead of picking on little crooks who can't afford to sue.

Switched over after the Raith/QoS match and caught the 2nd half of the Jocky Wilson documentary on BBC1.

Will source the full show on iPlayer, as what I saw looked a really good watch.

I only caught the end of it too. I remember the howl that went up in the pub when he miscalculated his checkout.

Did they mention the hate mail he received because his wife's name is Malvina?

Don't know if this has been shown on TV yet but a great idea and a bit of a coup for Warburton's to get DeNiro. He reminds me of Paulie from The Sopranos at the end.

I enjoy watching Landward, especially when the lovely Ann Lundon or Arlene present a feature.

Vipond's ok too, not fussed with Euan though.

Oh, I like that! But maybe not surprising that they got DeNiro on board - didn't they already do one with Stallone? And the Muppets, so clearly their advertising budget is fairly high.

That's true. The Muppets one was superb too. Hope they keep going down this route, but as you said, they must spend a shiteload on advertising.

Did you see Ann Lundon last year I think doing a series on the North Coast 500?

Apparently his fee was "six figures", which is surprising - I thought it would be over a million easy. I guess he only had to pitch up for one day's filming but still.

As I thought,  a really good, and at times touching, TV biography.

Bobby George : an obvious very good mate.

John  Lowe : respectful, but lukewarm.

Eric Bristow : dislike reeking out of him.

Also included a bit on the time that Top of the Pops had Dexys Midnight Runners on, performing "Jackie Wilson Said", and they put up a backdrop of Jocky Wilson :lol::lol::lol:

I thought it was superb. Warts and all programme and seemed to be an honest portrayal of the guy; he came over as exactly what he was and was graciously thankful for what life had (eventually) given him.

Truly one of our great sporting heroes.

Bristow came over as a right cant; no surprise there. I have a love for Bobby George though.

Saw a wee bit of the programme, was it Phil Taylor that said he told Wilson that he thought he might have diabetes because he recognised some symptoms that some of Taylors family had ?
