You can get all of the Out of Town series on DVD - I've rented them all recently and they stand the test of time superbly well.Beowulf said:.....and reminded me of the 'Out of Town' programmes that Jack Hargreaves presented when I was a child.
Happy care free days!
One programme which shows just how old some of these programmes are was of a horse training centre in Andalucia. During the sequence Jack was driven to a horse fair at the local bullring in a team of six and I thought that the bullring looked familiar. It stood alone surrounded by farmland as far as you could see but I was sure that I recognised it. I wound the DVD back and looked again and it was the Puerto Banus bullring now surrounded by villas and apartments as far as the eye can see - times change!!Roger said:Paul,
I used to watch the Out of Town programme when I was a kid ! A couple of months ago, I was browsing in a second hand bookshop in Weymouth and found a copy of a Jack Hargreaves book. I took it up to the counter and the old boy there looked at it and said when he was a boy, he used to see Jack driving his horse and cart round Bere village where he lived !
