Hi bailey, your right I think your a saddo, but each to their own.LOL
As most of the bars have tellys you might be able to get it, depending on if they have sky tv.

Can't believe that someone can come to Corfu and want to watch Big Brother!!
I wouldn't even watch it in UK!!
However I'm sure you will find a bar that will accomodate

We was in Corfu one year when Big Brother was on. I can't remember seeing it advertised in any bars though. Like Sailor said most bars will be busy with the sports.

You will probably find that if they have Sky you will be able to see Big Brother. You have to speak very nicely to the staff behind the bar and they might let you watch it. It all depends on whether it is going to clash with a match I'm afraid. I dont personally watch it now as its getting stupid.

They don't even reach naff status.....................they aren't that good ............................. Let's just hope some half wit doesn't decide they are worthy of repeating.

Is it not repeated already, Channel 4, E4, Big Brother Little Brother. The whole set up is a load of rubbish.
Oh well, everyone to their own thing I suppose.

Just returned from two weeks in Cavos and Big Brother could be found in a number of bars along with Eastenders, Cornation Street and al the most up to date films such as Troy, Shrek2 etc. These films can also be purchased from the same bars for 10 euros.

hi bailey, thought u needed some back up here!!! i hate to admit it but i watch it too!!!! cant help it i think its great i just watch it for a laugh at the stupid degrading things they do the drunken arguements and backstabbing and i must say a bit happier viewing than most soaps at the moment as they are all depessing at least we get a laugh at these silly people in the house!!!!!!!! i go to corfu in just over two weeks cant wait !!!!!!!!!
Hear hear. I don't think people should be giving their opinions on what others like to watch on TV. My husband can watch cricket or rugby for ever, which I cannot understand. I like the reality programmes as I am a "people watcher". We have enough TV's in the house for everyone to watch what they like.
One year the bar we were in was showing Greek Big Brother. So Bailey, get your video set and get someone to TEXT you the results as they happen.

I watched it for the first time last night, it was also the last time!
Watching paint dry would be more enjoyable!

I too, saw a brief view of this awful programme. I would rather watch QVC, or lately, the political broadcasts (the real big brother).
What a load of rubbish. Bring back Wooden Tops, then I suppose there is some similarity between the two programmes.
Happy Viewing !!!

I know its going off track a little bit, but do you all remember the Finger Bobs??, a man with a big beard used to sit at a desk and had little mouse puppets on his fingers! i loved it when i was little, thats when i lived in Northampton of course, i was only 4 years old!
Message posted by Sailor on 11áJuneá2004 at 12:21pm - IP Logged
To be honest, yes I do. As a kid, I even tried to teach my dog to walk like Spotty Dog.
Dont tell me you dont remember them too.

Oh Judie, you must be nearly as young as your picture. I remember showing my children 'Tales of the Riverbank' and now I am showing my Grandchildren.
Just to prove I am really old (sad old git) the first programs I remember are 'Billy Bean and his machine' in 1951 and Prudence Kitten around 1952. Then there was 'Muffin the Mule' around 1952/1953. (name suspect)
Much later I remember 'Captain Pugwash' and his crew. They consisted of ' Roger the cabin boy' , 'Master Bates' , and 'Seaman Stains' Is it me or are all these names rather rude and the early childrens program makers were taking the Micky out of the public using names like this for childrens TV?
Does anyone rember Trumpton, Rag Tag and Bob tail, bottle Island and one of my old favourites was Pinky and Perky the two little pigs. I had a jigsaw of them and left in hospital when i came out, and boy was i gutted.

Cathy remembers a mouse called Toppo Gigio (spelling?) but I can only recall Speedy Gonzales. Don't forget Fingerbobs - a real show from the 60's, Blue Peter, the Wooden Tops, Camberwick Green and, a particular favourite of mine, Noggin the Nog - Oliver Postgate is a genius.

I too loved the finger bobs as i have said im my previous post, it used to mesmorise me LOL of course i was only 4 years old at the time!
Anyone remember Music Box?

I remember the mouse Topo Giggio too, and all the others too, some of which were still going when my son, who is now 30 was little and we used to watch them together. I remember my daughter being particularly keen on Pingu the Penguin which was another great programme. Then of course there was Tony Hart and his pictures, and Morph. I believe that he is was the first character that came out of the Aardman company, the creators of Creature Comforts. The people who invented Wallace and Grommit.
I suppose one good thing about getting older, we can see how some areas of content and production in television/cinema have improved. I can remember as a relatively small child when we got our first TV, and it was very definitely grainy black and white!
I know this thread first started about Big Brother, just wondered what people's views are about REALITY TV in general. It seems that a fair proportion of time each day is set aside for Reality TV. I have read one or two articles recently from people in the business saying they thing the 'bubble' is about to burst. I know a little about that area of TV as my son has worked in it - not BIG BROTHER I hasten to add, but he has worked on similar programmes.

Firstly, well done to your son, what a great job!!!
Im personally not that fussed on reality tv, i find it quite boring, although i do love watching people! But i do have to say that i absolutely love The Osbournes, that makes me laugh so much!!, i cant believe people actually go on like that family, very dissfunctional (spelling) but very very amusing to watch!!! Ozzy does it for me LOL
I was very upset when I grew up, (well nearly), and found out that Toppo Gigio was a pair of dressed fingers through a black curtain. I remember him once being the top of the bill at the London Palladium (Bruce Forsyth era).
Hello, my name is Toppo Giggio, how are you.
Those were the days.
Graham, yes I do agree with you on that score. Probably not worded right but in those days, unlike today, I dont think the kids understood the alternative meanings, unlike today. I cannot recall my very strict parents running to the TV to switch off, or turn it over, (Did we have more than one channel then). How times change.

Really loved reading all the comments above re: childrens programmes(Yes it's off the thread a bit but may I add ,watch what yu want, it's your choice and long may freedom of choice continue!!) .Remember a lot of the progs but some of my favourites were "Torchy the battery Boy" and the European fairy tales which included "The Singing Ringing Tree"
And I am only 30 honest!!!!

just discovered from this thread that Bill and Ben the Flower pot men was not reality TV!
I share your thoughts about the cast members of Captain Pugwash, although at the time I did not appreciate the second meanings. lol

Its brings back a lot of memories for me, but will warn you it is mostly from the fifties but some may have been repeated in the 60's.There are also some good links from it on other things ie Commercials and British Military ceremonials.When I feel a bit nostalgic I go to this site to bring back my childhood!!!Sad are'nt I
Hope yu try it and enjoy
