I seem to have fallen through a wormhole

Thanks to typing in a URL which was misspelt, and using the wrong TLD (thanks to having the memory of a goldfish) I got a place-holder page saying, inter alia,

"About Web sites

Web sites are servers connected to the Internet. On Web sites, you can publish Web pages in a format called HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). Anyone with a computer connected to the Internet can view Web pages using programs called a browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or AOL/Netscape Navigator. You can also use Web sites to send and receive email over the Internet."


It's just like the episode of 'Nanny And The Professor' where they find the radio is playing an old radio station, though Hal (?) debunks it by finding out that it is a station playing it as a 50th anniversary celebration, but then of course it carries on after it should have stopped.

Ah, The Great Broadcast of 1936 (Airdate 11/06/70) from the 2nd series.

(the real website I was looking for was less than useless anyway so this at least was amusing)

What TV needs...

... is The Bizarre Dark Remakes Of 70s Sitcoms And Children's Programmes Channel.

Top on the list, I think, has got to be the dark surreal Metal Mickey remake. Think The Bed Sitting Room, but with a cheery robot and Irene Handl.

.. or ...

Boris and The Professor. A remake of Nanny And The Professor, but inexplicably the place of the nanny is taken by Boris Johnson, post defeat in the 2012 mayoral election.

"Soft and sweet, wise and wonderful. Who? Our mystical, magical, Boris."

"Since the day that Boris came to stay with us, fantastic things keep happening." Can there be a single Londoner who doubts the truth of this? :-)
