I think they are normally called "bakers" aren't they?

Princess Anne was on Emlyn Hughes team in A Question of Sport. Hughes was quite a amusing captain in the Quiz Show. I always found it interesting that he was not particularly liked by many of his peers when he was pro footballer, especially at Liverpool.

Happier times for the Royal Family. Royal Tours to foreign climes at the time always had good coverage plus a special long production as a round up. Now coverage would usually be clips on news channels.

Lost in Space. The first episode of the rerun on UK TV since the very early 1970s. The first opportunity for most of us to see the Sci Fi drama in colour. Though the first 29 of 83 were filmed in Black & White.

In later years Lost In Space was followed by a music programme and on one of them The Bangles, I think, revealed that the lad in Lost In Space was now in a punk band. He was/ is half of Barnes & Barnes, renowned for the song 'Fishheads', amongst other things.
