Tales From The Television - Part 11

On November 2nd 1982 I witnessed the launch of a brand new television channel in the UK. As a young lad, I was excited beyond belief because I had only ever had three TV channels to choose from. Back in 1982 satellite didn't exist and cable TV was not yet invented, Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64 computers were just beginning to become popular. Life was seemingly simple  - I had not even watched a video by the time I was thirteen!

So the launch of Channel 4 was a life changing moment in my life ....... yes I was a nerd, yes I was a geek  - but I didn't care because I had such a passion for this new TV channel and no-one could take that away from me. (Except my parents, with whom I had to battle with too watch any programmes they would allow me to watch!)
