The Challenge version has 5 singers in 30 mins and that seems right. Very little of the presenter = more singing and for more than 90 seconds!

I think the original was longer though? Can't remember.

Yes. Him and Bob Monkhouse, I would say.

This is the episode with Nat King Cole. He's fantastic. Sounds like him and resembles him.

He's good with the contestants and the contestants are the stars which is what I like. They take the singing seriously and so does he.

That statistic is much quoted but misleading as 'Diamonds are Forever' was not released until 14 December 1971 where 'On the Buses' was released in July.

Yeah, that is true. It's probably status and fame that attracts them as well as money. Not sure how many ugly, toothy low-paid, manual workers attract blonde, vacuous bombshells (for the 1970s!) as...

No. On the Buses is terrible in my opinion but then I'm not of that generation (although I was a toddler when it was on TV) and not living in those times. I do watch the films when they are on though...

Unfortunately it's a 'race to the bottom' with workers getting the cr*p end of the wedge. Employers can get away with being unreasonable and then expect you to be flexible when it suits them. I mean,...

These deals are never much good for me as a single person. I just buy most of my shopping at Aldi and Sainsburys and I'll bet I don't spend more than 15 a week on food.

That is my least favourite- along with Carry on England. I think even Emmannuelle is better than Carry On England though. Neither of them get much of an airing though -quite rightly in my opinion.

THREE hours of JK on a Saturday morning on ITV in the old kids' TV slot? ITV would have been better off showing cartoons or old Tiswas/no 73, etc.

Sponsors know the demographic of that show. Sounds like the sponsorships acts as a warning for the activities of SOME of the show's participants and definitely for the behaviour of the host. :D
