Here's one for you, so many to choose from, and all very different over the years.

From British sitcoms to multi million dollar US series to the modern Scandanavian era of TV.

Well I won't post mine all at once, I'll spread them though the thread.

I'll start with some multi million dollar stuff from America.

The Sopranos

Sons of Anarchy


Chip in with any format .......

I tend to favour footy, music items on BBC4 and high-brow quizzes.

A monumentally great series from the past was The World At War and I loved the retro-futuristic Gerry Anderson stuff like Fireball XL5, Thunderbirds etc... and I never missed Ready Steady Go, it perfectly captured the zeigeist of a great time to be growing up...

...but my favourite programme ever was Tiswas, just sheer anarchy, probably seems quite tame now, but at the time it was really innovative.

As I am older than most hereabouts... anyone else remember Hiram Holliday...?

That's the bunny, used to end up having a fencing match with his brolly every episode, it's kinda my earliest TV memory (apart from the Sooty show on Sunday afternoons). I remember it being hilarious, although I'm sure it was just cheesy slapstick, it disappeared without trace and very few of my peers have any recollection of it.

There were apparently 23 episodes made, but it was pulled in America after 20 were shown.

I believe all 23 were shown in the UK.
