Toys and books, three channel TV and the Saturday Matinee at the cinema were pretty much all kids had for entertainment and I still thought it was pretty damn good.
I understand your post, of course, and you make a great deal of sense.
I would, however, like to add to what you say by asking younger BCG readers to spare a thought for a generation of kids for whom three-channel TV (had it existed) would have been the equivalent of Netflix!
The Beano, Dandy, Topper and Beazer were like rays of brilliant light shining into what was generally a rather dismal and uninspiring world.
