MY PRESENT INTERESTS



Part 1


On Thursday the 12th of March 2015, after some time of consideration, I decided to watch clips of a programme called Wheel Of Fortune that I used to watch as a boy and record on VHS. Now, in 1997 when I was 10, I recorded three episodes of the programme on a blank cassette. Twenty years later, I still remember all the puzzles that were on those episodes.


The four puzzles on the first episode on the tape were the television programme ‘Dr Quinn Medicine Woman’, the phrase ‘Familiarity Breeds Contempt’, the occupation ‘Fishmonger’ and the famous couple, or then famous couple as I should say, ‘Liz Hurley and Hugh Grant’.


The four puzzles on the second episode on the tape were the group and song, ‘Beautiful South One Last Love Song’, the common word, ‘Button Down Collar, Collar Bone’, hence the common word was ‘collar’, an event called ‘The Mardi Gras Carnival’, and the phrase ‘It’s All Greek To Me’.


The four puzzles on the third episode on the tape were the television programme ‘Jo Brand Through The Cakehole’, the phrase ‘A Watched Pot Never Boils’, the Star and movie, ‘Al Pacino The Godfather’ and a type of food called ‘Chicken Liver Pate’.


Anyway, below are two red ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ clips that I like watching, though I wouldn’t watch either of them excessively for obvious reasons, which is why I wouldn’t expect anyone who reads this bit on my website to do that themselves. They’re clips of an old episode from 1998 that I don’t remember, and it’s divided into two parts. I didn’t find any clips of the three episodes I recorded on VHS in 1997, mind you I personally didn’t expect to, not that it matters. My Mum said that maybe they will be on YouTube eventually, but I wouldn’t be bothered if they won’t be.

There is a third part of the episode on YouTube, but I’ve decided not to include it in the list because I can’t watch it in case the contestant with the most points who made it through to the last round didn’t manage to win the big prize which was always either the car or £20,000.



Part 2


I like watching old clips on YouTube of a programme called Robot Wars that I used to watch on the telly and record on blank cassettes in late 2000 and early 2001 in the days when I had a video machine.


As well as watching old clips of Robot Wars on YouTube, my most favourite battle to watch on YouTube in particular is from the second semi final of the fourth series is Hypno-disc VS Splinter. I remember watching that battle on the telly when it was on in early 2001. You’ll see what I mean if you click on the red link saying ‘Hypno-disc VS Splinter’ and watch on YouTube the battle I mean. The clip is only two and a half minutes long.


The fourth series was originally shown on the telly over the course of late 2000 and early 2001, and I enjoyed that series the most. I didn’t watch the programme when it first started. Below this paragraph, is a list of 64 YouTube links which are the 16 heats of the fourth series of Robot Wars each in parts of four. I can watch any one of these 64 clips whenever I have the opportunity, as anyone else who used to watch that programme and love it can do so if they are reading this page, though there probably would be agony of choice for them if they do want to as well. I clearly don’t expect anyone to watch all 64 of these clips in one go as it would obviously take too long. Each episode of Robot Wars was 45 minutes in length, so it would take twelve hours to do that.

I also like watching DVDs of the comedians Billy Connolly and Ross Noble. There are 22 DVDs being mentioned in this bit, and there are green Amazon links to all 22 of them should anyone want to order any one of them on Amazon via any one of the green links. I certainly would never expect anyone who reads this page to order every single one of these.


Here is a list of the four DVDs of Billy Connolly doing his tours around different countries respectively. I got all four of these for Christmas in 2015.
