    On a more serious note, the last couple of decades have seen a lot of 'special interest' TV shows vanish from our screens; alongside GamesMaster, we also lost Tomorrow's World, Top of the Pops, The Tube, The Old Grey Whisle Test, to name just a few that I miss.

    Instead, we seem to be bombarded with reality TV and an infinite run of programmes covering Michael Portillo's train travels in silly trousers.

    And don't get me started on MTV no longer showing music videos... the world's gone mad.

    Who is watching broadcast television? My mother, who loves Michael Portillo. But no one with a Netflix account. For now, a lot of them are still paying the licence fee, unnecessarily. I don't think it will be that long before Portillo is stuck reviewing Ely-Peterborough.

    That actually sounds quite good. I think he's got the voice for it.

    Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube-Premium - are all great, but terrestrial TV still has value, for those skilled in dodging Portillo's whacky pantaloons.

    I still watch 'normal' TV, and I don't have a single subscription to anything else (I'm still in my 30's). Don't automatically assume that everyone is keen to spend a fortune on multiple subscription services. There are a few things I'd be interested to watch, but that tiny number of series spread across those multiple platforms seems like very bad value for money to me.
