Isn't there a by-law controlling unattended cabriole legged tables parked half on and half of the pavement?

Nice one, QB.

GFAS was always on in our house on Sunday evenings ... but seeing it again (in colour) was a treat - Arthur was a formidable character!

Stanley Baxter is still going strong, and appears quite regularly on Radio4 in comedy plays ... with a posh accent.

I seem to recall GFAS was a Sunday afternoon programme in the late '60s.

I think you are correct there QB - it was black & white as well, in the early days.

It must have been one of the BBC's first colour programmes, but we got it in B&W as in our house as well, it must have cost a fortune to record the programme in both formats.

"...it must have cost a fortune to record the programme in both formats "

Auntie Beeb's boffins soon twigged that the new colour TV sets could display B & W [by setting the colour adjustment slider to 'min' on your Colour TV], so they flogged off all of their old redundant monochrome TV cameras ... there was one on The Antiques Roadshow a few months ago!
