    Ah but do you remember the days of no comedy on the radio before half-past one on Sunday afternoons :mad: ? Lest it gave decent Proddie people an alternative to going to church and caterwauling nauseating crawling crap like this,

    Nah Gunny, for Americans the 1950s were the Golden Years indeed. In much of the rest of the world it was very grey. In the UK people were still using ration coupons from wartime as they rebuilt a severely damaged economy. In Australia there were severely repressive governments at both federal and state level and as Chips has pointed out, the religion wars were festering.
