A fascinating upload courtesy of the always interesting VHiStory blog...



As mentioned (by me) on here a few times, it's the apology after the Smack The Pony episode with a sketch suggesting "a small explosive device would f*** it up nicely" went out on the night of the Soho nail bomb. The apology really is a terrible bit of arse-covering by Channel Four, because it it was, as they say, "too late to edit it out", they would have dropped it completely and shown something else. They clearly just completely forgot it was in there.

As has also been mentioned here, that same night BBC1 showed an episode of Only Fools and Horses where they went to a gay bar, and got loads of complaints it was inappropriate.

The whole story, and some lovely grabs of brilliant Smack The Pony sketches, is at https://vhistory.wordpress.com/2020/02/18/smack-the-pony-the-simpsons-king-of-the-hill-tape-2603/

Whatever happened to Lindsay Fallow? She was one of these presenters who's suddenly everywhere and then suddenly disappears

Particularly around 1999/2000/2001

When she turned into a man, grew a couple of feet and changed her name to Simeon Courtie?


He's in the mustard-coloured jumper, Lindsey Fallow is in the ketchup-coloured jumper.

That blog is coming up with a certificate error and also pinging my work web filter for pornography. Bit strange.


Certificate looks valid from here, but if your work has a content filtering system and it's decided *.wordpress.com is a hive of pornography, that will mess up the certificates too.

I'm getting a certificate error through my home broadband (Plusnet) using Safari on Mac, so it's not quite right.

Do you get the same error on all wordpress.com hosted sites?
