That Was Life! Noticed the plethora of Tribute TV lately? I think it means that we've made all the decent programmes, and there's only derivative, self-referrential stuff left. Maybe.

Sunday afternoon, I watched the tribute to 21 years of That's Life! with Esther Rantzen. It was lots of ageing talking heads, mostly, though I have to admit to tears in my eyes when they talked about Ben Hardwick and Nicholas Winton.

As I was watching, I was half-thinking to myself, my first serious boyfriend went out to direct That's Life! (he always felt that light entertainment was his dream, and I guess that's where we differed), and as I was thinking that, up he popped. Looking damn well preserved, I have to say.
