No - not Libebuoy - but here you can talk about old Soaps such as United, Albion Market, the Newcomers etc. - WITHOUT BEING GREYED OUT!

The next one will have to be Hospital dramas.

I do remember the Newcomers mainly because they were quite a few good looking girls in it.Although TV wasn't big on my agenda in the 60's.

Including one who grew up to be Miss Brahms.

Alternating (on different days of the week) with United, as I recall, and which, as a football mad young boy, was my favourite. It had Harold Goodwin (who often crops up in small parts on TPTV in old b&w films) as Horace, the trainer. A football trainer called Horace - different times indeed! (Suddenly got this feeling of deja vu :))

The other one from my youth was, of course, Compact.

Well it disappeared from our screens. Maybe it was the Bermuda Triangle.

Sadly no. Why do you think I'm still an unpublished writer?
