This is what they want!

Was eagerly looking forward to "Tiswas Reunited" on ITV tonight, and I was not disappointed. It was a fitting tribute to the greatest Saturday morning TV show, which ran from 1974 to 1977 in the ATV region (Midlands) EDIT: and then got a full UK airing later on (sorry for inaccuracies in my original post which stated that it ran from 1977 to 1982).

Tonight's show brought all of the great memories flooding back. Of course in these days of political correctness (yawn) it would probably never get commissioned by any TV company, so it was a joy to look back to the glory days of a truly great show. Lots of laughs and flan-flingingly great memories resurrected thanks to this show. Just one thing though: that wasn't the original Spit the Dog, was it? Or maybe he's just had a facial wax?

Tiswas certainly was NOT across the UK from 1977. Late 1981 only. That was it!
