      I loved that old Bush, but after fiddling with the knob too often, Dad banned me from messing with his Hacker. I was still allowed to slap my platters on the Pye black box though, so it was all good.

        Cue a racist rant from Alf, despised by Rita, but added to by "innocent" Mrs. Hollingbery (Carmel McSharry).
