Our websites include the Whirligig British Television and Radio nostalgia sites from the Fifties where we celebrate the decade in all its monochrome glory; the quaintly formal presenters with their clipped English accents, the clunky theatrical dramas, the cosy parlour games, and the first TV adverts with their curiously infectious jingles. Everyone feels some nostalgia for the TV and Radio programmes that they watched and listened to when very young, so here we attempt to bring back to you some of the flavour of TV and Radio from the Fifties.

Trooping the Colour - British Military CeremonialOur British Military Ceremonial website celebrates the custom of Trooping the Colour which dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th. Century when the Colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle and were therefore trooped in front of the soldiers every day to make sure that every man could recognise those of his own regiment. This impressive display of pageantry is now held on the occasion of the Queen's Official Birthday. It takes place in June each year to celebrate the official Birthday of the Sovereign and is carried out by her personal troops, the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with the Queen herself attending and taking the salute.

The Crazy Gang - a tributeThe Crazy Gang were a collection of zany comedians combining three double acts all of which had enjoyed individual successes - Jimmy Nervo and Teddy Knox, Bud Flanagan and Chesney Allen, and Charlie Naughton and Jimmy Gold - and sometimes joined by, perhaps the most comical of them all, 'Monsewer' Eddie Gray, a master of slapstick and comedy juggler. Together they became a real comedy phenomenon and our tribute website details the Gang members and provides information about the shows and films in which they appeared..
