    If you tried to broadcast that now you'd be on a register before you could say "Roger the cabin boy".
    But did it do us any harm at the time? We asked a hundred social workers, and our survey said...."

    Your reference is an urban myth. The cabin boy was called Tom.

    I know it is, and he was, but it's still funny to think we all believed the myths, even though we actually watched the programme. I was going to say "watched the programme at the time" but I've just checked on IMDB, and it turns out they stopped making it in 1966. Three years before I was born. So what I actually watched (circa 1974+) was the umpteenth repeat of an umpteenth repeat. Happy days though.
