Hope for the Future Page 3

You Don’t Have To Read It…

I realise it’s only really good comics like Watchmen or The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen that generally get annotations, and that the idea of me doing annotations to my own work might make me seem like a bit of a pretentious dickhead, I have just realised that some of these cultural references may be a little incomprehensible if you are not British. Or are under the age of, say, 25.

Now of course, any element of pop culture is just a mouse click away, but, amazingly, I couldn’t find any of Little and Large‘s many TV shows on Youtube. The nearest thing is this trailer for evening viewing on BBC1 way back in 1979 (which, to be fair, is pretty representative. They were rubbish).

Back then we only had three channels, no video recorders and certainly no access to round the clock porn. But, if you were thinking this is so long ago as to be irrelevant, from the looks of it BBC1 remained exactly the same for at least the next 12 years.
