The Young Ones was a very accurate documentary based on my OH and his house mates when he was at UCL, Muffy.

I'm trying to think of programmes i watched when I was a teenager and other than Only Fools and Horses..I can only think of Top Of The Pops and The Young Ones off the top of my head.........I'm sure I must've watched less trashy programmes.....or maybe not !!!! :-S

Cathy Come Home was a play, Rose. It made me cry.

That Was the Week That Was is one I remember that got me thinking about the world.

Monty Python I loved because it poked fun at daft "institutions".

I think Grange Hill was a bad influence on children. It seemed to be a turning point of the behaviour of school children.

that you feel has had an influence on you during your life, what would it be?

For example.... when I was a teenager I watched 'The World at War', one episode on the Holocaust ( interviews with survivors) made a lasting impression.

But it could be a documentary or play ( say 'Cathy come home'), or a soap that has dealt with an issue that reflected something in your own life, perhaps which made you view a subject differently. Or a news report on injustice of some sort. Even a comedy series that made you think life was worth living still at a bad time.

(and yes I am trying to think of something to post to keep me away from commenting on the politically charged Mrs T thread lolol ) ;-) but also because Dan was asking me what I watched when I was his age :-D and we were talking about 'The Family' being really the forerunner of 'reality' tv.
