This week on "My 70's TV Childhood," we're taking a journey back to the golden era of Great British TV—1972. It's a year that's a treasure trove of classic television, still close to the hearts of those who experienced its magic firsthand.

Whether you're indulging in a comforting cuppa or sipping on a glass of Malbec, prepare for a nostalgic trip through the memories and laughter of 1970s television—and remember, it's all in good fun!

We start with a tribute to the late Ian Lavender in our "Stupid Boy" round, reminiscing about 'Dad's Army' and some memorable moments from the show.

Next, our "Marathon - Fil Rouge" round challenges you to connect the dots with questions linked to past episodes of our podcast. Whether you're a seasoned listener or just joining us, test your mettle and wit.

Then, get ready for our “Spin the Wheel” and "Name That Tune" mashup! Featuring five theme tunes from shows that began in 1972—there are a few nice easy ones this week!

Finally, the "TV Times" round, where we quiz you on everything from the record-breaking 'Record Breakers' to the comedic misfires in 'Birds in the Bush.'

Stay tuned until the end for the answers to our last quiz's bonus question, and brace yourself for this episode's bonus challenge. Can you recall the name of the team's manager from the animated version of The Harlem Globetrotters?

We love to hear from our listeners—share your scores, thoughts, or any fond memories you might have of 1970s television.
