You could play on the street and walk about without a issues because your neighbours would keep an eye out for you and get you home if need be.

Video recorders were the latest whizz bang gadget and so modern.

You never though they could top the special effect of The Terminator movies.

If you'd sit late at night as a kid with some ancient radio and fiddle with the knots to listen to radio programs in languages you didn't understand.... sometimes there'd even be music!
