The sound of heartbeat signified the end was nigh 

Aye heartbeat was the one. Game over when that finished. Making hale and pace was just taking the piss.

Sorry lads. It's that time.  

The Sunday dread used to kick in just after Songs of Praise finished. It was in full flow during That’s Life and I was suicidal when Spitting Image finished.

I always remembered Sundays as Two Way Family Favourites, as much ale as you could sup in the two hour slot, a Sunday roast, a kip in bed, then out for the three and half hour sesh at seven.

Why?

Preaching unsubstantiated nonsense as though it's true. 

Unless you're asking why I'm watching it - for which I  have no answer.

It was Antiques Roadshow and Heartbeat for me. Sat in front of the electric fire drying off after having a bath. Keeping as quiet as possible hoping mum and dad would forget I was there so I could stay up a bit longer.

I remember my mam and dad used to let me sneak back down after putting me and my younger brother to bed on a Sunday to get me over the Sunday Dread and once there was some sort of spooky thing on about a dead nun in a rocking chair.

Didn't sleep properly for the next 5 years and never really got on with Sundays after that.

The only antidote to the despair brought on by hearing the dirges on Songs of Praise was the theme tune to Ski Sunday.  That's why it was there, it was the only thing holding off the collapse of society. 

Superb!! Loved that programme. Not the slightest interest in skiing myself but there was something about it that was fascinating. Probably waiting for someone to disappear into the trees at 100mph

The starting credits of Antiques Roadshow was the cue for my mum to ring her parents in Norfolk every week and they’d have it on at their end, interspersing the conversation with estimates on each item.
