Brought back memories
15 January 2008 | by (Perthshire) – See all my reviews

We were the first house in the street to have a telebox,and I seem to remember a train hurtling at me from the Television on the opening credits to 6.5 special which caused my siblings and I to dive behind the sofa.

My memories of the 50's were of a very dull time ,it never stopped raining, everyone had ducks flying up the wallpaper, with a mirror over the tiled mantlepiece and a rug made of old socks in front of the fire.

The music was just as Dull I recall. Rock and Roll was starting to make an impact though although it was thought as slightly downmarket.

An episode of 6.5 special was aired on BBC 4 the other night and now I remember it had something for everyone- an article on mountain climbing in Wales, a silly sketch featuring Spike Milligan as a deranged butcher and of course lots of music that Auntie Beeb deemed 'safe' for their young viewers.

I then realised that the music on offer was as dull as I remember it at the time. Thank god for the Beatles. Lots of Nostalgia though, I hope we can see more of these programmes in the future.
