Think they would all be locked up if they tried it here.

But a pretty effective bit of advertising.

The big white arrow began his showbiz career on the TV gameshow "CATCHPHRASE" when he was a lot younger and more animated ... he pointed to the main clues for the contestants.

I must say his acting has become a bit wooden ;o]

It's an English language channel.

Many countries have TV channels that broadcast solely in English.

It's quite shocking how many people across the world speak English with greater fluency than many native speakers in this country

If they put the new Belgian TV channel on freeview, I would 'give it a twirl'.Belgium is always favourite to take the brunt of stand-up comedians' jibes regarding it's dullness...this side of the English Channel.

I remember, in 1982, when Channel 4 was launched with it's state-of-the-art computer generatated coloured NUMBER 4 logo...and I think COUNTDOWN was the first programme...it's still on!

Thanks, that was brilliant.

I never met a Belgian yet who wasn't absolutely charming, with manners straight out of a Regency novel.

They obviously have a sense of humour to match!

'Recognised a few English soaps /dramas in there.'

Yes the patient falling out of the ambulance was pure Norman Wisdom slapstick!
