We have been spoilt by the hundreds of channels now available. I find that there is little that I need to watch and SWMBO keeps switching channels if she doesnít like what she is watching.
Decades ago I lived in an isolated village in Corfu opposite Albania. The only English language film was on a Saturday night and Iíve been out in the rain to take the battery out of my car during a power cut so as not to miss it. Alternatively there was Norman Wisdom on Albanian TV. The reception was always snowy but the value put on seeing anything was so different to today.
Progress. Bah, humbug!
