Firstly, can I just say a big, big THANK YOU to whoever started the thread 'TALKING PICTURES'.
It was mentioned about A Family At War. Think it deserves it's own thread. Haven't seen it since 1973... it's a compelling watch.
I suppose it's a WWII soap opera, and the memories have come flooding back. Technically it isn't great, nor is the storylines... the mannerisms and dialogue, however, is recognisable to a child of the early 60s - me!
I've recorded a couple of episodes and watched one or two others. It wouldn't look out of place in a modern setting IMHO.
For someone who hasn't watched much TV over the last few months, A Family At War is a televisual revelation.
I remember it from broadcast but didn't watch it then. I have contributed to the discussion about it on the Talking Pictures thread because I do find it interesting and at times it can be good but for me it wouldn't compare with slightly later dramas like the Onedin Line. It's an important piece of televison history really, the sort of thing that often hasn't survived from that period.
