Rounding off my week in 1977 with a skim through Sunday’s schedules.
The Good Life is an obvious pick – tonight’s new episode is The Weaver’s Tale.
It never fails to give me a twinge of amusement when somebody comments on Twitter about how selfish Tom is – why has it taken them so many decades to work this out? Tonight’s episode is a perfect example of his working methods – Tom spends his and Barbara’s hard earned profit on a loom without consulting her. No surprises though that everything works out in the end.
London ITV has an afternoon repeat of The Protectors whilst the Midlands plumps for Space 1999. I think I’ll go for The Protectors (partly because Space 1999 has never really interested me and partly because The Protectors, although far from perfect, rarely outstayed its welcome at 25 minutes).
I’ll stick with ITV for a repeat of Edward VII and (from a variety of regional films) Two Way Stretch.
If I had access, then both Jubilee and She would be on my list. Maybe they’ll surface sometime in the future, fingers crossed …
