Default Did you watch Prisoner in the TVS 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.

Default TVS Days

I remember watching PCBH on TVS in the mid to late eighties as I recall.
It was shown on a Thursday night and mum used to let me stay up and watch it despite it was on a school night (tut!tut!).
Then a friend of mine lived in Birmingham and sent me down episodes he used to tape as they were so far ahead. I was lucky as I had the best of both worlds.
I loved every minute of the show and it brings back so many fond memories and , it seemed, loads of people of various ages used to watch it too.
I can always recall the school was buzzing the next day after the riot or the fire at Wentworth .
Suddenly, due to TVS losing the franchise, the show just stopped. I believe Meridian carried it on but by that time I was occupied with other things.
It was a joy when channel 5 screened it from the get go although some of the episodes were pruned (Edna Pearson stories and Eve Wilders hanging) so I am grateful of the current DVD releases.
