Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I've read the SMTV comments a few times now in the YouTube Gold thread and still have no idea what the hell they are on about

Re: Ed Doolan battling dementia

Very sad news, heard it on Radio 2 - I was always listening to his shows back in the day, such a great broadcaster. In more recent years it was revealed he had a fantastic archive of radio and TV he had amassed over many years. A sad loss to midlands broadcasting.

Re: Sports Direct paying below minimum wage

Shocking. I don't think this is the same sort of thing but anyway - I had a family member get a job recently at a 'well known holiday camp' as a chalet cleaner assuming min wage. What was not made at all clear in the job listing or interview was that you are 'sub employed' via a contractor working f...

Re: Sourcing Kays Catalogues

As someone who would love some old shopping catalogues to peruse, I was shocked to see some of the prices 80's and even 90's Argos catalogues go for on ebay. They are less likely to be kept than an old Radio Times or newspaper, so had to settle for discs of jpg scans! All I can say is just stick you...

Re: D2

I blame that on Pure for selling tons of DAB sets with only one speaker and charging separately for the other!

Re: Very local chains

I can recommend Roy's of Wroxham for being the world's most expensive supermarket. Actually, everything in Wroxham was... The branch of Boyes in Louth is/was excellent, a proper timewarp store! Plus I remember a Jackson's supermarket taking over an old Lo-Cost popping up in the Midlands but soon dis...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

Two large white vans from Germany (forgot the name on the side) were at the newly rebuilt Lidl in Skegness, which is close to opening. Seems a bit extreme to bring over German shop/till system installers?

Re: "Namby Pamby Day"

What happened to those blue and orange Sainsbury's plastic baskets that they wanted you to use instead of bags? Presumably you buy them and you'd see all the posh people use them in their cars full of shopping in the late 90s

Re: The Media.info News and Infomation board

Didn't their forum only allow industry types to join or am I thinking of somewhere else? I can't remember where I got those clean late 90's WM jingles from that I lost, must have been there.

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

My local Lidl has demolished itself and is being rebuilt from the ground up. I saw one in Norfolk doing something similar last year - I think they are better off spending their money on a modern logo, a name change and some decent edible food

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

I keep thinking they are warnings rather than shopping tips, from the way they are speaking - also why are Barclays moonlighting as IT teachers these days?
