No-one's mentioned Brat Farrer yet. About racing stables and the heir not being who he seemed.
Itsy & bitsy

There was also one I remember where two kids would crawl through a small door into a kitchen where they would help the cook bake things.

The Interns
Spencer's Pilots
First one from the late 60s, second from the 70s, both starring Christopher Stone (later in The Howling and Cujo) - both unavailable on DVD, as far as I know. I would love to rewatch them just to see if I still like them.
Chopper 1 - with Dirk Benedict, before Battlestar Galactica, long before A-Team
Follyfoot - at least that's available on DVD. Still kind of cute
The Partridge Family
I guess those are the girly-shows of the 60s/70s

When the boat comes in, funny you should mention that, my husband and I are just watching it again for the umpteenth time, how brilliant is this series. Jack Ford the rogue everyone loves but doesn't want living with them and the Duke in it, how that old geezer makes you smile.

This is a must series for anyone to see, shows you just how lucky we are even if the country is in a mess, they sure had it bad then and I believe its true to life, the way they lived etc

Now your talking, Armchair Thriller
When I was a kid I was allowed to stay up to watch this, think my mother was scared and I was the moral support (lol). I remember on perticular one, I was about 8 or 9 at the time and I had nightmares for ever with it, in fact I can partly remember even now so shows how good they were. Happy days:-)

Does anyone remember the following 2 series which were on mid 70's and I think late 70's! They were Clayhanger and I think the second title was Chesapeke.
First one about a family in the North early 20th century (industrialists I think) and the 2nd one I can only remember that it was set in the USA and was about 2 fur trappers one being called Pesquinal. I would love to get these if possible, anybody know anything.........................

I contact channel 4 some time back, they said that they have no plans ever to put Chelmsford 123 out on DVD. I have a copy I obtain from the USA where a Brit had taped it of the TV and drop both series onto DVD for me. It not the best copy in the world but bloody funny.

Agony Again from 1995, You Rang M'Lord? and even Birds Of A Feather seem certainly forgotten, despite the latter being huge and long-running and popular to boot and it remains so. Also the gameshow Cluedo which was great beofre the last series got silly and then they canned it.

I have only just got into Beautiful People (series 2 just finished on BBC2). Extraordinarily witty script, superbly acted by Luke Ward-Wilkinson (and his young schoolfriend, whose name I can't recall). Meera Syall's character blind-Aunt Phyllis is hilarious. I've had to buy the boxed set of Series One as I missed it. Why are all the GOOD comedies hiiden away in the schedules whilst all the dross (The Wire etc) gets blanket advertising.

A Very Peculiar Practice IS available on DVD, Ernie, I know as I have a copy. Try looking it up on Amazon.

A Very Peculiar Practice- excellent indeed. Recently awarded 8th slot in the Guardian's top 50 dramas of all time.
Fairly Secret Army (contemporaneous with AVPP) was also very good!

does anyone remember Mosschops? A kids show with a plesiosaur that would say in a welsh accent "oh it's gonna be a nice day today flower". Used to have my brother n I in fits, but no-one else seems to remember it!

Anyone remember Metal Mickey? I used to love that one. Armchair Thrillers always used to scare me. Does anyone recall BJ and the Bear? I think it was about a truck driver who drove around with a monkey.

Currently watching 1st season of The Untouchables on DVD which I recently purchased for under £10. Stands the test of time very well indeed.
