    - black and white TVs
    - 3 TV channels (ample IMHO)

    I still had a black and white TV in my kitchen in 2005. It was still possible to get the discounted licence in those days.

    Ha'pennies.

    Shilling coins being used interchangeably with the old big 10ps.

    50p coins that were so huge they probably got used as murder weapons in prison.
