Yes ,,,

a programe called,

***Your Life in their Hands****,and knew I was then going to become a nurse,,,,,,,which I did,,,,,which then led to others areas.

The Sky at Night led me to have a great interest in the planets and viewing them....

Interesting programes about the ,Normans ,Saxons and Romans in Brittian,which led to metal detecting,,but now its a fancy name called treasure hunting,

David Attenborough for nature and wildlife....

I remember the 70's newsreels of the 'troubles' in Ireland and always thought how awful it would be to have a soldier with a gun partrolling my street outside. I think that made me think what it was like to live in a free country.

I hope that hasn't come over as if I am trying to post a poliitical message. Its not intended just to express my fears of not feeling free.

I used to love watching Whicker's World.

From the late 1950s into the 1990s Alan Whicker would bring reports from around the world and I don't think there's anyone famous he hasn't interviewed.He was great and would get the most bizarre and the most interesting stories, having an uncanny knack of bringing the best out of everyone he met.
He appeared to me so relaxed that I imagine that was his secret.
In the tv programme's early years,when most folk could only dream of far-flung holidays abroad I thought Whicker's World was an exciting programme so I've always wanted to travel.

I loved When the Boat comes in, too (well, I would!)
Boys From the Blackstuff was a wonderful drama series, one of the best ever.Also, Our Freinds in the North was very memorable - I was sorry when it finished.
