"Watch With Mother" was a different thing every day. Trumptom, Camberwick Green, Poggles Wood, Noggin The Nog, The Wooden Tops etc. My most enthusiastic telly watching days :)

Just old enough to recall the tail end of the '60s as a nipper.... watching The Beatles do 'Hey Jude' on The David Frost Show, being allowed to stay up to watch Armstrong and Aldrin walking on the moon in fuzzy black & white, pounds shillings and pence, looking in the window of the local record shop seeing the brand new 'Abbey Road' LP cover, Minis absolutely everywhere and Mum singing along to 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' on the radio...

Space Patrol was a bit before my time, more of a Thunderbirds / Captain Scarlet sort of guy myself :)

Re muffin the mule . . . . . Surely it depends on who "The Mule" is :oops:
