Default Did you watch Prisoner in the Scottish ITV days?

This and the other ITV regional threads are here so you can take a trip back down memory lane and let us know how you discovered Prisoner, how your local ITV company showed it (some were better than others in how they treated the show) and any other memories you associate from the time - all are welcome on this thread.

Yeah,many moons ago,I was a forklift driver on the backshift.
Finish at 11pm and get home about 11.30pm-Prisoner was about the only thing on the box and one of my brothers who was also on the back shift was a fan,so Iused to watch it quite regularly too.

Scottish tv here. I think it 's about time for Prisoner to return to ITV and all its regional variations. Be a hell of a lot more entertaining than all the reality rubbish on our screens today! I think it would be a ratings winner yet again.

With the right publicity, I think that you would be surprised at the amont of fans that would magically appear. There must be a LOT of people out there with fond memories of this superior slice of drama.

If, theoretically a channel was to show it at about 9 or 10:00pm in a regular timeslot and if it was advertised a lot before being shown, I think people would be shocked at the ratings it would get.

But that will never happen.

If ITV or channel 4 where to show it at 9:00 or 10:00 it would get millions. But TV networks are ashamed of it.
