Bring back Crane
8 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

I think a digital channel should be made available for Nostalgia TV. We could have re-runs of programs like Crane which I remember as a kid and really liked it. the parents thought it complete tripe ,but what the hell.

There is loads of stuff out there in old TV land that would be great fun to see again. Programmes like Adam Adamant, the dreadful Nationwide, really old Corrie, etc etc. I am a member of the original TV generation when there was an innocence about TV and can remember all sorts of rubbish!

I remember Crane (or crumple clock as Pater called him) as a daring rogue battling against swarthy foreign officialdom. Great!

Patrick Allen also did the Voice over for the government nuclear warning film so his voice might have been the last one we ever heard!
