Some of the TV shows I have seen expressed some 'interesting' attitudes and opinions.

The 70s were great for me, some brilliant memories, I was 13 at the dawn of 1980.

What wasnt so good in the 70s? a few strikes like the miners and firemen affected us and we only had 3 channels on TV and almost all of them were shit so we went out and did stuff or read a book or played with our friends, simple times.

TV started at 10am for school programs then went off again until about 1pm and then it was all over by about 11pm and the test card.

Surprised nobody has mentioned white dog shit Cheesy

Hose pipe bans, abysmal road surfaces, Yorkshire Ripper, problems in the Middle East, aeroplane hijackings, rubbish England football team and failing to qualify for World Cups, flares, platform shoes, long hair - The list is endless!

Not a lot has changed

Less than 25% of his offending took place in the 70s there was more in the 80s and 90s.

Hunt was F1 champion and Sheene was 500cc GP champion in 1976.  Great days for motorsport.

The Summer of 1976 was my first memory of getting sun burnt playing with my mates.

The World Cup in Argentina in 78 was my first that I took notice of too, the goal by Gemmill vs Holland.

Swindon getting to the Semi of the LC and beating Arsenal and Wolves in that.

Staying up late on a school night to watch Argentina, sunburnt cycling to lechlade in 76 then Wooky Hole the next day to get relief in the caves.
Arsenal home and away probaly my best football memories and who can forget seeing Everton fans walking on top of the old Shrivenham Road stand or the hot dog stand on fire against Spurs

Yes you're right the 70's has stikes and power cuts, petrol queuing and Swindon had to play Pompey in a cup game midweek in the winter at 2pm as they wouldn't allowed to have the floodlights fon
And the programme was a single sheet of paper costing 2p if my memory serves me correctly !!.
