    Laugh-In:

    The series was broadcast on BBC2 from January 1969 to 1974. Some episodes from seasons 1, 2 and 3 were retransmitted during late 1983 and early 1984. Early broadcasts had to be shown with a black border, as technology was not available to render the 525-line NTSC video recording as a full-screen 625-line PAL picture. This issue was fixed for later broadcasts.
    Gilligan's Island:

    In the UK Gilligan's Island had a very brief run on ITV in April of 1965 but was dropped after 13 episodes.

    Au contraire, I remember both being on British television. Although Gilligan was on ITV so I couldn't watch it...

    Whatever they were, I think that's the first point I've ever scored on this.

    Kirk Douglas (if he doesn't go this time, I'll concede that he must be the Highlander)
    Congrats on McCririck.

    Apologies

    Oh yeah. It was huge in the UK in the mid-60s, unmissable in fact.

    No (that might have been the Pinto(?)) The Mustang was, and remains, a classic.

    Arte Johnson was a Laugh-In regular back in the 60s. Lee Iacocca was Ford Motors head of development in the same era, he introduced the notion of a "small" sporty saloon to the US market (the Ford Mustang). Later he worked for Chrysler and produced the 'K' car.

    I would have sworn Mr Mustang died several years ago.

    Now there's a rave from the grave (or a rave in the grave I guess.)

    Anyone have Claus Von Bulow? He's finally popped off at 92.

    Yes but you'd expect the Winter months to be more productive.

    They might snuff it in batches, as often seems to happen.

    We appear to have been quite poor at this, this year, if it's taken 133 days for any of our 100-odd nominees to pop their clogs.
