LOL Rob, Thanks for reminding me, I'd forgotten about that series, but your video didn't have the girl who danced in

silhouette, remember her? I don't remember what day it was on, but it says on this link it was Saturdays starting in 79,

even toppling Match of the Day from it's number 1 spot. It did have some great actors in it, just watched Toyah,

Well Guys and Gals, I am a newbie. Have enjoyed reading all your memouries of the 1950's ,

Someone mentioned Arthur Haynes, wasn't he brilliant.

My favourite was OVER THE GARDEN WALL, with NORMAN EVANS.

He was from Blackpool, and his gravestone is a small GARDEN WALL

I see that the Clangers are coming back.

That's all very well but it don't half make me feel old having watched them with my two girls when they were little.

Who's next Muffin the Mule?.Those strings would stand out well in HD.

Hi Alan, welcome.gif to Connect. Who was from Blackpool? Norman Evans was from Rochdale.

But he was buried in Blackpool.

I loved Arthur Haynes too, I used to watch it with my Mum and Dad.

I remember when him and my Dad used to say, "Up to me neck in muck and bullets!"

(Which my Dad said he was in the war!)

 

I loved the way they never could keep a straight face. ohyeah.gif

Thanks Phil for correcting me. Later in the day I realised my mistake. Sorry everyone.

 

I left St. Helens over 40 years ago, didn't realise how much I miss it reading this forum,

 

The input from everyone is fantastic,

:wave: and welcome to Connect, Alan - always good to see new posters contributing their own memories. Usually triggers something deep within our own 'little grey cells' at the same time. Isn't it amazing how much suddenly bubbles to the surface - even after being 'buried deep in the memory' for many years. That's exactly what happened to me a couple of years ago when somebody mentioned 'the chicken window' in Cotham Street ... all of a sudden I was three or four years old again - gave me that eerie sense of deja vu.

 

The name 'Alan Fairhurst' sounds very familiar to me - did you perhaps go to Rivvy Road Juniors in the 50's?

Does anyone remember this?.. we used to try and impersonate him in the baths at school, Partrick Duffy pre Dallas Days!!!!

They only made one series eventhough it was very popular .. apparently kids kept drowning themselves thinking that they were the Man from Atlantis !!!!

I'd never heard of that one, but here it is!

 

"The entire series later ran on the BBC from the fall of 1960 to the summer of 1961.

In its BBC rerun, The Adventures of Hiram Holliday was the first US series to be shown five days a week in the same time slot."
