One of my favourites - Jigsaw. Strange program, but I did win the certificate for finding the treasure!

Nw or old Paddington? They've messed with the forumla in the new one, Padington looks different.

You can't beat the old one, with only Paddington being a 'solid' character and everyone else being cardboard cut outs. A strange design choice but it works.

I have the Paddington theme tune on a vinyl 7" single. Bernard Cribbins does the vocal iirc.

Speaking of BC, I have the 7" Busby record ("Make Someone Happy Everyday") that he supplied vocals on. :oops:

My excuss is that I was young at the time and didn't know any better.

I suspect I have that one lurking somewhere too - my dad worked for BT at the time.

Mentioned this on a different forum today:

EUREKA

With mad inventor Wilf Lunn creating such memorable contraptions as the automatic worm charmer, and Sylvester McCoy (and others) recreating the history of famous inventions. A BBC classic, part educational, mostly good fun.

I'll nominate First Class with the gorgeous Debbie Greenwood.

As I watched it, I did not especially care for the contest or even the delighful Debbie. I used to record all of the gaming sections when the contestants would play 720 and HyperSports. A lot of them had no gaming skills at all, and watching them all fall off the downhill run in 720 was hilarious.

Yes he was great :evil: I had only just got passed the references to the old song Gordon is a Moron and had a ready made brand new nickname!!
