Here is that game. The 1988 Texaco Trophy.

Stuart Broad's dad is playing. Was he good? I have time-stamped his execution.

Sunday 19th May 1985.

A brand new show begins on ITV at 8pm.

This was 8 months after its original US airing in September '84.

That might not be it actually but it would have been something like that. There's loads on youtube. I like Harry Secombe.

Saturday 19th May 1984. Lots of pages from the TV Times.

In the run up to the 1984 FA Cup final on ITV, we get darts.

An article in the 2nd pic here. I've a funny feeling they don't get along...

Might as well do the BBC listings for that cup final.

All these listings show what a huge event the FA Cup final was for the nation. Feels like it was a bigger prize than winning the league.

Something at 11.05am calling itself Fawlty Towers.

Saturday 21st May 1988.

That indoor football sounds weird. Noon on ITV. Then live football later that afternoon.

'The Two of Us' at 7.30pm on ITV. A sitcom. I've seen the first series. Nicholas Lyndhurst and Patrick Troughton... :O

This is the episode that was shown that night.

Troughton died in the roughly 18 months between its original airing and this repeat. A heart attack in his hotel room at a sci-fi convention in America. Only 67. Smoked like a crazy person. He is often struggling to clear his throat when he is in Doctor Who and that's 20 years before he died.

Saturday 22nd May 1971.

Episode 1 of one of the most highly regarded Doctor Who stories: The Daemons. Think the wicker man with a sci-fi twist.
The Two Ronnies.

This is that Doctor Who episode, the top slice of the Tom & Jerry sandwich.

A TV magazine from May 1996.

DOCTOR WHO returned with a telly movie. I remember watching it. I hated it. It is set in the near future of New Year's Eve 1999.

I almost certainly watched this Stars in the Eyes Grand Final too. Not sure about Eurovision.
