Fantasy Sunday night schedules: slight return

Thanks to those few people who took up TV Cream’s challenge and devised a Sunday night line-up for BBC1 that captured some of that Grade-endorsed “smell” of bygone days.

It wasn’t a competition, but it turns out there was a winner. Step forward John Connolly, whose prize is to have his schedule rendered in this tasteful slide:

John also supplied billings for each of these shows.

Second prize goes to anybody who is willing to hazard a guess at what was on the original version of that enticingly-late-80s-looking continuity slide.

  1. Was it something like the BAFTAS or the OSCARS … or the Olympics … something like that

    Heaven knows – judging by the graphics though it looks to be roughly 1989-1991, as it’s similiar in style to the graphics for TOTP’s ‘Year Zero’ relaunch.

    Was You Rang M’Lord on the original slide?

  4. TV Cream says:

    The original line-up:
    6.40 Songs of Praise
    7.15 First of the Summer Wine
    7.45 Howards’ Way
    8.35 Bread
    9.05 Sunday Premiere: The Bell-Run
    10.35 News
    10.50 Everyman
    11.40 Network East

  5. David Pascoe says:

    Everyman being roughly changeable with Heart of the Matter of course. I’m going to have to go to IMDB to look up The Bell-Run now as well.

    I don’t think I ever actually watched Heart of the Matter but it was of some comfort that it was there, signalling the end of the weekend.
