    It will no doubt have massive publicity. Reviving a comedy format that was written & produced over 45 years ago will be very difficult. Expectations will be very high.

    Burton Albion away - Discussion & Prediction Thread

    The Grecians have got a poor record at the Pirelli Stadium in both the Conference & EFL. Seen every Grecian game there in that time. With the exception of the 4-4 in 2008 the rest have been pretty dire affairs from a Grecian point of view. Good news is I’m not going, so like MK Dons where I had...

    7th February 1988 Happier times for the Royal Family. Royal Tours to foreign climes at the time always had good coverage plus a special long production as a round up. Now coverage would usually be clips on news channels. Lost in Space. The first episode of the rerun on UK TV since the very...

    Energy Prices

    The figure G2K mentioned is frigging crazy. Borrowed money from the Treasury(taxpayers) in effect going to the coffers of pretty big players in the world wide energy market. I know something had to be done, but what huge cost to the country. I think I’m right in thinking that it’s around the...

    Probably the best war biographical film made. George C Scott was excellent as Patton.

    A rare picture of Exeter City Reserves who played in The Western League for many years. This photo I’m guessing is from around 1974. Unfortunately the line up names in the photo are wrong. Cec Smyth is 2nd from left on the top row. David Brown is top row 2nd from right. Graham Weeks is bottom...

    Exeter City Women 2022/23 Season

    That would not happen at SJP i guess. Even for a game that’s not a first class fixture, the ground safety regulations would have to be adhered to for the Safety Certificate. ie Stewards, someone in the Control Room, Ambulance outside & the rest that goes with that. I think there is the right...
