The present will become the oldies and you'd think back and say, the good old days. It's human nature. I have absolutely zero memories of the 80's.

It was annoying when TV stations started operation at 4pm on weekdays.
Re: Does Anyone miss NTA Of The 80's? by MadMax1(f): 4:26pm On Apr 01, 2009
You wanted 24-hour programming? cheesy Guess they assumed everyone was at work or school till 4pm.

But, but, I don dey when the infamous rainbow line thingie dey too. Sesame street is very fresh in my memory. I also remember Matlock (which I kinda liked a lot but in retrospect I wonder why a kid my age should have), Dr. Who used to scare the bejeesus outta me. Just the theme song and I'd be hugging the sofa. Not like I could peel my eyes off the TV. I admit, in later times I couldn't care less what was on local TV (My dad made me go through one hour of NTA news everyday though). My mum keeps on telling me I missed really good Television like it was back in her day. A common example (the only example really) is Village Headmaster. I don't know anything about this show. But you've gotta admit, I still try.

Yeah, the adverts then were the best. I just loved the Thermocool ad. Tina Turner's Pepsi advert and that first Close Up ad! I remember Winds Against My Soul and Behind the Clouds, and how we all cried when the dude that played Nosa died. Where is Dangermouse,Fragglerock,Voltron and Muppet show in ya list? Those were the best!

We could go on and on about the good old days. The simple truth is that creativity has departed from Nigerian TV stations. The graduates being employed these days in the Nigerian Media are not really innovative and deep thinkers like those of the 70's , 80's and early 90's. Many of them hustle for media jobs just to survive. I know what I'm saying. It is not as if they do not have books to read or materials that will stimulate them artistically. It is just that our value system has been thrown to the dogs. In Japan and South Korea, solid animations and cartoons that are eons ahead of Voltron are being created daily. Our Television Stations are not headed by great thinkers. Let me stop here. Cheers.
