Chat Club looks at TV and Radio

We talked about life before television. Derrick could remember taking the batteries of the radio to the local shop for recharging and the big tubes that needed warming up. Workers' Playtime was a favourite programme during the war and the Crazy Gang and the Clitheroe Kid came a bit later. 

The first TV's had tiny screens and no choice of channels. The test card was often the only choice for viewing except in the evenings.

The subject got on to different TV programmes and Donna found  a Sooty glove  puppet. The naughty Emu also made an appearance.
