    I have to admit I've become hooked on the daily soap 'Together' which is currently being broadcast on the channel, TV and film stalwarts Kathleen Byron, Margaretta Scott, and Victor Maddern (with dodgy perm) are all in it, and several other familiar faces such as Shelia Fay and Sarah Greene, set in block of flats in Southampton which is meant to be sheltered housing for the elderly, but younger people live there also, on some episodes a warning has been issued beforehand about language which may be offensive, not swear words, but derogatory terms about people that wouldn't be uttered today.

    First transmitted in 1980 in the Southern region, I don't recall it being transmitted in other regions, maybe it was, I can vaguely remember Sarah Greene in a daytime soap around this time.

    Anyone else watching it ?

    I've caught it a few times. Until it turned up on Talking Pictures TV I'd never heard of it. Although she was then nearly 60 years of age Kathleen Byron was still a good-looking woman.

    I caught a bit of one episode last week. I don't remember it at all. As you say maybe it was only shown on Southern TV. Was it shown originally in the afternoon?

    Wasn't she just, whenever I see Kathleen in something, I always think of her 'close-up' scenes in Black Narcissus lol, I forgot to mention Hilda Fennemore being in it, she was one of my favourites as well.

    I would have thought so, after the lunchtime news probably.

    Another programme the channel repeated recently was the sit-com 'Lord Tramp', another Southern TV production, made in 1977, I certainly don't remember that one being transmitted elsewhere, starring Hugh Lloyd, a tramp who inherits a small stately home and it's staff, Joan Sims was housekeeper, I did watch the programme, but it's pretty awful.

    Also The Winslow Boy (1948) tomorrow (Monday at 6.15pm) which I've not seen on tv for yonks. I very much like Robert Donat's cool performance in this - looking forward to seeing it again.

    I am recording them all, I haven't seen It's Great to Be Young and The Weapon for almost 60 years.

    Thank goodness for Talking Pictures, it just gets better every week!

    I hope they show Nurse on Wheels in correct reel order, unlike the Optimum DVD.

    Unfortunately, they did show the version with the reels in the wrong order. Call the nurse!

    Do wish I could get this channel via my freeview :{ - A friend of mine who lives in Cosham - further up the coast than me, can - but to be honest, our local transmitter @ Newhaven is to put it mildly, crap !
    One slight gust of wind &/or a day like yesterday weatherwise, and I lose all my signal

    THis sounds like my ideal channel - + they are showing old Southern tv programmes like the early 80s soap -Together.
