Subject: RE: For all the Ancients
I wa sborn in '65 but i remember taking the back off the telly when I was about 6 and wiggling out the tubes ( much to my father's chagrin when he got home from work and wanted to watch the news). Dickie Davis on World of sport and saturday afternoons watching the wrestling with Jakie Pallo, Mick McManus and Giant Haystacks. Getting the first issue of 200AD. My first "home computer"was a Sinclair ZX80. And my second was a TX something or other, where you loaded programmes with a tape recorder, and if the volume wasn't just right you had to start over again, which was a bugger because it took 5 minutes anyway. Riding up and down the street on my brand new chopper bike and seeing the first episode of Grange Hill.
