Watching flickering sets in TV store windows?
The Melbourne Olympic Games?
Graham Kennedy on In Melbourne Tonight…
Watching sitcoms like Here’s Lucy…
My earliest memory of TV was watching Sesame Street, always at 8.00am each weekday morning on ABC, though I’m told I was also a fan of Adventure Island. Then I felt so mature when I felt I was old enough to graduate to The Early Bird Show on ATV0. And if I was well-behaved enough I’d have been allowed to ‘stay up’ to watch Skyways.
Coming home from school one day in 1977 to find the old black-and-white Philips set moved aside and replaced with a Pye colour TV set. How excitement! Not only was it colour, but it was ‘push button’ which seemed very modern as everybody else I knew still had the rotary dial tuners. How modern we were???
