    I used to love grange hill. It always seemed ten times more interesting than my boring school. Zammo and his heroin, gonches schemes, tuckers misadventures, wicked immelda Davis,pogo and his putty, and my favourite, 'uncle' gripper Stebson, happy days

    Should we have a public funded statue of Zammo?

    @neilold aren't you the same guy who kept moaning all over the place about how nobody would have a decent discussion about politics with you anymore? Yet when Ant very sensibly challenged your views, you ignored it and buggered off to make a Grange Hill Thread?

    I bet Roland would throw puddings at you for this :sulk:

    It's Mr Bronson who should have a statue, Neil. He was the best character.

    Although I didn't mind the theme, the scenes of bullying left me scared, especially as it was on at a time when I was at school. I think I'd better rephrase that: it was on after I'd come back from school.

    Bluey, Don't buck the bronco, you may end up dead. Remember them slogans they used to have on the walls occasionally?
    They seemed really too clever for schoolkids to think up

    So what you're saying is, school kids are more clever than you personally. A good and interesting point there Neil.

    You remind me of Mr Bronson in many ways, @Bluey

    Ahh, yes. The 'buck the Bronco' one was after Danny Kendall ended up dead in Bronson's car. The kids all blamed Mr Bronson for his death. That 1989 season was the last great Grange Hill year and Bronson's last. After that the show really went downhill rapidly.

    To me the last great year was series ten. The year zammo left. The following year was tainted. It had the last great years characters,gonch, Ziggy etc, and the famous American prom ending, but it was interspersed with nothing characters starting in the first year. The series then dropped off a cliff. It was funny how it went so so bad, so, so quickly. It didn't decline over time, it just went from great to terrible in the course of a season

    I always felt sorry for bronco, specially how he'd gone out of his way to get Danny the treatment

    Do you remember 'uncle' gripper?. It's weird the era's the most racist character to appear on TV was in a kids show. I'm bet if he was around today, his threats would lose about 95 percent of their screen time.
