McMillan and Wife

McMillan and Wife – 1971

One of the biggest Hollywood stars in a great TV series. This was the very first programme I saw on the family COLOUR televisonj, and seeing the combination of Rock Hudson (Roy Harold Fitzgerald) and the beautiful Susan Saint James. The show ran from 1971 to 1977 on NBC, it also starred Donna Mills who went on to star in Dallas in the 1980s.

70’s Televison

What an amazing piece of kit our telly was. Can you imagine having to change channel by turning a knob to tune in BBC2 and forever getting up to realign the aerial and contrast, and the only way to stop the picture from rolling was to give the set a good thump? Do you remember that we only have three channels to watch? Thinking about it, the conversation was better at school next day as everyone seemed to be watching the same thing unlike nowadays where we have too much choice. Aye, the quality of programmes seem to have dwindled when you think back to what we had in our days.
