TPTV has secured its first licensing agreement with the BBC. As a result it will soon be showing Secret Army (not Fairly of that ilk) featuring Jan Francis of Just Good Friends fame (thought I'd better add a comedy reference in there).

My husband keeps recording programmes on Talking Pictures TV, he particularly enjoys the 'Look At Life' shorts hailing from the 1960s.

Have been burning them to DVD since they started - I think I have about 30 on there at the moment, but am running out of space.

I love the series! Remember them at the cinema in the 60s. Cool

There were four women in it that were all very attractive to me.

Albert's bird, Jan Francis, the blonde one that was also Del Boy's girlfriend in one episode and Kessler's bit on the side.

Secret Army was a limited scenario and should have become repetitive after the first series but it was utterly gripping right up until the final episodes. Some great character development especially Bernard Hepton's sometimes sinister and opportunist Albert while Clifford Rose brought some depth and humanity to an odious convinced Nazi commander.

Family of actor Clifford Rose launch appeal to help with care home fees:
