Like many other things we’ve discussed in this podcast, Sundays were a bit different in the 1970’s. Shops were all closed, pubs only open for a few hours, if at all and the TV schedules had a range of religious programming including the BBC’s Songs of Praise and ITV’s slightly glitzier Stars on Sunday. There were also religious programmes for children.
We’re joined by the writer, broadcaster and popular culture expert Tim Worthington this week to discuss growing up in Liverpool and what television meant to him and his family. We also hear what Sundays were like on the TV and share fond memories of The Sunday Gang, a particularly lively group with a great theme tune who wanted to show us The Way.
