This week’s prompt TV memories
I remember when I was younger sitting in front of the television watching my favourite shows. I loved things like Chips, Doctor Who, and my favourite Starsky and Hutch. It was small, but a colour TV, and had three channels. At twelve o’clock the test card picture was only shown.
Another favourite programme was Little House on the Prairie. I loved that show and would rush home from school to watch it.
When I was sixteen I got my own television for my bedroom. It was a twelve inch, black and white television. About that time I watched the very first series of Dallas – Who shot J.R and the famous scene, where Bobby Ewin dreamt a whole series. They originally killed him off and it was the only way he could be brought back to the show.
You could connect a computer game (tennis, football, hockey) which had lines for the players and a two dimensional ball. For us eighties kids, it was the best of the times we were in. There were no computers, but even then there were worries we were getting too much TV time.
