"Ooh! I could crush a grape". I still use that phrase to this very day.

After 35 years it might seem new
I wonder what the equivalent of a Crackerjack (CRACKERJACK!) pencil will be.

That would be fun. But only the international version.

I love the old tale about one of the games involving a tractor (or some sort of vehicle) and someone in the German team sabotaged the GB vehicle overnight. The GB team discovered it and simply switched the D and GB cards over so the Germans got the sabotaged vehicle.

It's a great tale even if it's not quite true.

Gosh...if you know your English audience you can say aloud ‘it’s Friday night... and it’s 5 o’clock’ And everyone will respond ‘and it’s Crackerjack’ a heartwarming pursuit I suppose...I never personally liked it, or Magpie...I was much more a Blue Peter sort of woman

Oh Danny...I’m not quite sure what this says about me as a person...but I listened to that from start to finish... 1983 was evidently not a good year musically for poor man singing...it puts life in perspective...it all seems so much better now

Just for you Millie (though my memories are of Lesley Crowther and even before him, Eamon Andrews lol)!
