    I am sure this will have been asked before,apologies but i could not find it using the search facility.



    What TV programming [not films] do you never tire of watching over and over again ?





    For me it has to be 'The World at War' produced by Jeremy Issacs. I was eleven when it was first broadcast in 1973, my father encouraging me and my brother to watch it, and it had a very strong effect on me, making me realise how lucky I was, but more so what my father had been through as an evacuee from East London during the blitz. Now I try and watch it every time I can, in fact I may even buy the DVD set for myself

    Lawrence Olivier narration does, occasionally, lapse into the gouache - but that does not detract from the excellence of a truly brilliant series. Just think, this series was broadcast on ITV - how times have changed.

    I still watch 'The Good Life' and 'To the Manor Born' - oddly enough I wanted to be Margot



    Every now and then I make the kids sit through some seventies or eighties sitcom - my son really liked 'Man about the house', 'George and Mildred!'



    Also 'Rising damp' and The fall and rise of Reginald Perrin and 'The Young ones'



    Some are very disapointing - Citizen Smith was pretty awful and I remembered it fondly. 'The Liver Birds' was a bit of a disapointment too.



    'Butterflies' was also pretty amazing - I'm actually starting to turn in to her I think..I never thought it would happen..apart from the fact that I can now cook!



    Rab c Nesbitt is funnier than I remembered it - there was a scene I saw recently, where they go in to a flat in a tower block and the kids ride in on a horse! I have been in flats like that - where maybe they have got a giant motorbike or a huge dog or something and you wonder how they got it up there. Spot on!



    Sorry that was really long. I'm all excited about something.

    I would think that Till Death Do Us Part was perfectly PC as it's pointing out bigotry and how foolish it is

    Monksy, I made my son sit down and watch 'Nazis, a warning from history' with me, when it was on a few years ago.
