Does anyone recall Angling today which was on tv every week on Central television during the 70s presented by Terry Thomas(the angler -not the actor) a big rotund man with a moustache who always had a cigar or pipe in his mouth....tried to find out a bit about him on the net but nothing exists....

Chris tarrant also starred in this programme, it was a bit spoofish, with Terry always making a f--k up,

One particular episode ,they were in pursuit of the shy elusive GRAYLING- as Terry said,"we must keep low and be quiet", and then fell down the bank about 8 feet with Chis T falling about with laughter,

If the old f-rt ever got in a boat he would always fall about,

my general feeling was that they had been to the pub before shooting commenced ,and Terry always had a glowing red face, like most drinkers have.

your dead right Alan...a perfect discription of old Tez...one program i will never forget was Barry Brookes hooking a good salmon and he was struggling to bring it in,suddenly the fish took him in to some weed ,and within 2 seconds Terry put his lit cigar on Barrys line burning it through,saying it was cruel to fight the fish when it was trapped...lol...Mr Brookes went blue with anger and swore at Thomas and they had to cut filming...lol...cheers Al

Angling Today was aired on Thursday nights at 11pm,on ATV.It was bi weekly,in that one week in two Gardening Today was aired.instead As a teenager with a head full of waffle one would lose track of the weeks,and sit up until 11pm hoping to see some fishing only to have Percy Thrower potting a dhalia.Terry Thomas lived out near Alvechurch and did enjoy the odd glass of port,but it was a great show of its time.As for his occasional assistant Chris Tarrant,whatever happened to him?

The art of centrepin fishing as demonstrated by Terry hic thomas was priceless......the reel fell off and into the drink.
