We've been having great fun this week looking back at what our predecessors got up to, much of which is contained in a double DVD complied by the Media Archive for Central England, based in Lincoln.
Tonight Andy Bevan concludes his three-part look at the contents of those discs, with some of the folks from 'ATV Today' who always made us smile.
To find out more about the DVD see the Media Archive for Central England website.
