A delightful trip down memory lane.
That’s Life was a very long-running programme on BBC TV in the UK. As Wikipedia writes, “That’s Life! was a magazine-style television series on BBC1 between 26 May 1973 and 19 June 1994, presented by Esther Rantzen throughout the entire run, with various changes of co-presenters.”
I had just about forgotten this silly item presented on That’s Life back in 1986 but thanks to fellow Brit, Dusty M. living here in Payson, it has re-surfaced.
Still fun to watch some 25 years later. (Can’t explain why this YouTube video has Dutch subtitling!)
And for those that enjoy sentimental recollections, the video below is the last few minutes from the very last programme on the 19th June, 1994.
With thanks to Ellen M. for passing this across to Learning from Dogs.
What a wonderful and talented man he was!
Many, many years ago I was a salesman with IBM UK; their office products division. I found it a wonderful job in a great company and was very happy. The annual reward for meeting one’s sales targets was the 100% Club. I seem to recall that at one of these lavish events, one of the guest entertainers was Peter Ustinov. Indeed, somewhere deep in my belongings is an autograph of the great man.
Anyway, as a nice alternative to the posts on Learning from Dogs this past week, here’s a wonderful compilation of interviews of Sir Peter taken by ‘Parky’ otherwise known as Sir Michael Parkinson – ah sweet memories!
