It Started With Swap Shop : 9:00pm Thursday BBC2

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctwo/listings...4224_11058_130

Anybody else watching this and remember it? I remember it vaguely from 1983ish. Quite a good show so far

I'm a bit young for Swap Shop, but remember Saturday Superstore and so on so will be more keen on the later bits.

And Emma Forbes.

I can vaguely remember watching Swap Shop and the likes of Saturday Superstore that followed. Can't remember to much about the actual show do to my bad memory and the like.

I remember the last couple of years of Swap Shop, but Going Live! was my favourite Saturday morning TV show. Quite enjoying this look back though

I was a No 73 viewer myself! I remember Swap Shop vaguely and remember seeing a repeat of some viewer that swore at Maggie Thatcher on one of the Saturday Morning shows.

Noel Edmonds did a similar show called Multi Coloured Saturdays a few years ago.

I have it on tape.

I hope this one is as good.

Watching it later

This was quite honestly nostalgic central.

Was great to watch the oldies and Noel however much we bash him is a great presenter.

And Andi Peters! does he have the same genes as Moira Stewart??? Doesn't seem to age at all!

Nice bit of TV that could have been put on BBC1.

I sky+'d this but I am sad to say that I am old enough to remember Swap Shop. I even had the 7" single the presenters released as Brown Sauce!
