This weekend 70steen had a fellow 70steen staying. Quite weird as we were at the same school but only hooked up as mates about 6 years ago.
Occasionally this other 70steen comments on 70steen as Anonymous, she is not a blogger but I like to think of her as a 70s researcher (or aka 'a mind of information').
I have my diaries and she has a phenomenal memory.
We spent some time this weekend chatting about what we both remembered as we were growing up. I tell you she had me saying 'OMG~ yes I had forgotten about that' on more than one occasion.
Friday night was a hoot, in fact the whole weekend was, as we drank too much wine and I attempted to write down what Annie Mouse reminded me of, for additions to 70sland (there a few things I can't even read & I wrote them!)
One of my favourite T.V. programmes of the 70s was the Here Come the Double Deckers. It ran over 17 episodes and was bunch of kids hanging out in London double decker bus, sorting out problems, having competitions, adventures but most of they were all having fun together. It was an eclectic mix of intelligence, colour, nationality & weight.
There was Doughnut, Scooper, Springer, Brains, Tiger, Sticks and Billie.
Two of the characters went on to better and brighter things
Peter Firth (Scooper) went on to appear in Equus, Hunt for Red October, Tess, Letter to Brezhnev, Pearl Harbor and the popular BBC series Spooks.
Brinsley Forde (Springer) Appeared in 'Please Sir' and Diamonds are Forever' notibly he was the was a founder of the band Azwad
Yes we were doing the dance... blame the wine !!
