TV WESTERNS.

October 24th, 2021 by

There was a time when you couldn’t turn your TV set on without watching a western. As a child the names of the characters were as well known to us as modern pop stars are to the  youth of today, but after all these years how many can you remember? This quiz, originally suggested by regular RICHARD  LONGLEY, gives you the name of a main character and the actor who played him/her and you have to name the title of the show. Most of the shows date from the 60’s or 70’s but I have added a couple of newer ones.  This should bring back some memories for my more senior readers!!

The Price is Right – 1971

September 13th, 2021 by

The game show “The Price is Right” first aired on US television back in 1972, with the British version, hosted by the great Leslie Crowther, coming to our screens in 1984. In the show contestants had to guess the price of various items, the nearest (without going over) progressed to the next round.

In my version of the game I have chosen the year 1971, the year decimal currency was introduced, to avoid the issue with Pounds, Shillings and Pence, and to make it “easier” I have given the choice of three prices. How much do you think households spent back in those days? Were you there and can you remember? Well if you think you can, in the words of the show, COME ON DOWN!!
