TV Times this week 1985.

Comedian Jim Bowen(1937-2018) presented Bullseye for its entire original run 1981-95. Part of the fabric of UK late Sunday afternoons for most of that run. 1st series was on a Monday, last 2 on Saturday afternoons. Still pulling in 10m viewers at the end.

Tony Green the Darts Commentator was the voice of Bully’s Prize Board...”Keep out of the black & in the red, nothing in this game for two in a bed”

Usually someone from a inner city area won a speedboat....Or as Jim would sometimes say “ Look what you could have won”

Claim to fame time. My eldest plays in a footie team with Tony Green's grandson. He of Bullseye Announcer fame ("In one...!).

I know, pretty tenuous ... lol.

The West Country debate on ITV...Jeeze the same old platitudes we’ve heard for months. I think I’d prefer to watch reruns of Love Island for more informed debate....This country is truly fooked.

9th December 1979

The Sunday matinee is Mutiny On The Bounty(1935) imo it had the best portrayal of Capt William Bligh played by Charles Laughton. Clark Gable played Christian Fletcher. Not as factually accurate as The Bounty(1984) but great performances by Laughton & Gable.
There was another film about the Bounty in 1962, starring Marlon Brando, it was not a patch on the 1935 version.

Buster Merryfield(1920-99) could not have dreamt that he would be on a TV magazine cover a few years before. His first Christmas Special episode. To Hull & Back.

Read today that sadly David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst aren't in contact much nowadays, I think perhaps maybe because Lyndhurst is being a bit more reclusive because of the death of his son not so long a go.

Yes, I did see that...I guess after the tragedy it’s understandably going to take Lyndhurst some time to get over it, if indeed, he ever does.

The late Ruth Madoc was at one time married (1961-81) to fellow actor Philip.
Philip Madoc(1934-2012) played the U Boat Captain in the memorable 1973 Dads Army episode “Desperate Attachment”

Phillip Madoc along with the Welsh chap who was in Dad's Army for a while (Can't remember his name) were the go to people if they ever needed a Welsh person in a TV programme back in the day. Madoc though was a good actor with that strong, deep voice, Either a villan or a person in authority.
