What were we watching back in the day.. ?? Here are some that spring to mind.....
Ah Jossy's Giants.... Probably my first introduction to the Geordie accent. Lol. They didn''t make a Scottish Version, Jocky's Giants.
Kes....... Nuff said.
I didn't notice this in the thread so far - way before remote control we had - bigtrack, 14 forward, 8 right, reverse for the trailer...erm I'm not sure it ever actually worked but it was fun all the same. The ones you can buy these days are much smaller, or I'm bigger lol!
Mmmm sweets, and you could still get change from 10p, those were the days.
I loved my Transformers and Lego aswell back in the day.
I also have an almost complete one of these in its original box in my loft, paid a tenna for it 25yrs ago!

Ladies and gents...I give you the Binatone Superstar Programmable Colour Video Entertainment Master Console
We had the SUPERTEN cartridge (Pong/tennis, hockey, basketball, etc), KNOCKOUT (Breakthrough game variants) and my fave STUNT RIDER (cr@ppy motorcycle games). Luckily there were only 4 TV channels that my parents couldn't watch while we played this :)

I remember our first colour TV, my grandfather got us it for the Royal Wedding of Di and Charles
