A Thriller of a Series

At Nostalgia Pie, we love our mystery and suspense TV series and movies. Life doesn’t feel complete unless there’s a whodunnit to solve! If you’re a fan of Tales of the Unexpected or Alfred Hitchcock Presents, then you’ll love Thriller – the British mystery and suspense anthology series that was first broadcast on UK screens 14th April 1973. But despite being a hit in Britain and America, it seems Thriller was given just one repeat on British television before it mysteriously faded away, with a lot of people born after the seventies not knowing much about this amazing show. But Thriller still has a legion of fans and has become something of a cult classic.

Angel’s Slice of the Pie #9: My Vintage Cookbook Collection

Hi Nostalgiacs!

This week’s Angel’s Slice of the Pie has been inspired by a conversation I had with my friend MJ where we were talking about our collection of vintage cook books (I promise you, our conversations are a lot more rivetting than they sound!) It’s no secret that I collect vintage magazines. It is one of my absolute passions and it is through this interest that I met MJ – also an avid collector himself – and a few other people I have become well acquainted with. But what a lot of people don’t know is that I also collect vintage cook books and I get very excited when I find one to add to my collection (I do have a life – honest!)

I don’t know when I made the conscious decision to collect cook books. I was always surrounded by them when I was growing up. In the living room of our very first house in East London, we had book cases which took up almost half the length of our flock-wallpapered through-lounge. You could easily tell which books belonged to whom just by looking at the subject matter..

A Dedicated Man by the ‘Other Elizabeth Taylor!’

A Dedicated Man, based on the short story by Elizabeth Taylor, starring Joan Plowright and Alec McCowen, was the first episode of a TV anthology called All For Love. It was first shown in the UK in 1982 before being shown on PBS in America as part of their Masterpiece Theatre series.

PLOT

A workaholic, dedicated to his job and separated from his wife, persuades a colleague to pose as his wife in order to secure a post at an upmarket hotel. The new ‘wife’ gets too involved in the charade which ultimately leads to trouble…

How Things Have Changed: Keeping in Touch For Ex-Pats

For those of us who live abroad, when it comes to keeping in touch with family and friends, there’s never been a better time to live in another country than right here in the twenty first century. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Skype, Instagram, WhatsApp… every day, it seems, there’s a new app we have to download or a new site we have to use which all the cool kids are using to keep in touch with their mates. Word! And if you really want to go back to being fairly old school, there’s always email and texting!

But way, way, back in the day, even before we had what we thought was the greatest invention since the wheel – good ol’ electronic mail – there were other methods of communicating with our not so nearest but still very much dearest, which at the time were essential for keeping in touch. The problem was that they were either costly or time consuming, which meant that people very rarely kept in touch with anyone who wasn’t family or a close friend. Now we can keep in touch with ;Colonel Mustard; Mr. Bun the baker, and the lady who gets the bus at the same time we used to if we want to, thanks to all those new modes of communication.

We take a look at some of the old school methods of staying in touch, even though there’s not really much chance of us ever using them again… Well not unless nostalgia gets the better of us…
