The sad death of The Professionals star Lewis Collins got me thinking about some of the classic tv series of the 70's/80's.

Some great shows, some facking awful. Used to love Grange Hill growing up. Never missed an episode of Minder, but fav show ever was Auf Wiedersehen Pet.

Yeah that's another one we probably shouldn't have been watching as kids, good though. On a lighter note, Fawlty Towers is great and probably more so now watching through adult eyes, and for a bit of cheese..............Dallas. Embarassed

Still think often of the episode in AWP when the lads went out without Oz and left rat poison in the accommodation. When they returned, Oz was there and most of the rat poison, which looked a bit like sugary sweets was gone.He apolgised for eating their someone's sweeties !The poison was designed to make the rats so thirsty that they'd run into the river and drown themselves.

Very conerned they looked at Oz and asked if he was feeling ok.

His reply. ' Why aye ! but I've got a ragin thirst !' lol!

Got a penchant for detective/police series of that era.Loved the Sweeney,it was on yesterday on one of the Sky Channels,still brilliant stuff. "We're the Sweeney son, and we haven't had any dinner." lol! The Marple series with Joan Hickson was superb,evokes an England which has sadly disappeared,Morse was excellent as well.Some great comedy too,Fawlty Towers was the work of genius and is still very funny even today.Boys from the Blackstuff,Spitting Image,Not the Nine O'Clock News,Python were all classics of their kind,they don't make 'em like that anymore.Some of the adventure type series were gripping as well-The Saint,The Baron,The Champions,The Persuaders,The Avengers etc were all unmissable viewing at the time.There were some great kids shows in the late sixties/early seventies as well,Ace of Wands,Sexton Blake,Tomorrow People,Lost in Space [Affirmative!Danger!Danger!],Smith were all guaranteed winners.Unfortunately a lot of classic stuff from those days was cretinously wiped-good website here which lists the missing material and the efforts which have been made to find some of it again;
