Nadia Compagnone… Tremendously un PC, but very funny and great characters.

Fiona Evans… The un-PC comedies were the best. Can’t beat them !!.

Pete Houghton… One of my favorites TV Series from the 70s

Graham Sherrington… its aired here in Florida every Saturday Night on PBS along with Mrs Bucket and other old Brit TV sitcoms.

Alan Esdaile… I remember doing a disco in London for the whole cast of Are You Being Served, even the nurses turned up! It was for Access credit card company who had a promotion for their staff called Are You Serving Well. The ones that did well got to go to the film studio to see the tv series being filmed and a meal and disco after. Speeches were made and Mrs Slocombe (Molly Sugden) said something along the lines of, I’m very sorry I can’t stay long, I need to get home, as I having trouble with my pussy!

John Mcewen… Used to go in there all the time as a kid. Those knickerbocker glories look pricey tho. In 1979 I was only earning £16 a week!

Roger Simmonds… My wife was a waitress in Dimarcos many years ago, happy times!

Deb Hoad… Remember going in there and having knickerbocker glories !!!

Helena Kingshott… Vera Dimarcos was one of my friends. a lovely family x

Lloyd Johnson… Helen, my Mum was friends with one of the ladies of the Dimarco family and we would visit her upstairs in their home above the cafeteria. I remember going there in the 1950s and she had just had a charcoal Mural drawn on the wall of an Italian landscape.It was really well done just in black line drawing… I remember being so impressed by it !  It seem like complete relaxed freedom compared to the average home decor of the time.

Pete Houghton… Omg yes!! I Remember going for a Coffee in Dimarcos in the 70s

Mick O’Dowd… I worked in Iorio DiMascio(now Italian Way) and we had the fake displays. One day a woman came up yo the counter with 2 of them and said these look nice i’ll have them please. They were covered in dust!

Jim Breeds… How much did you charge her?

Mick O’Dowd… 2 chocolate coins!

Harry Norcliffe-hic… Great looking prices

Peter Brazier… Lorna worked there!

Tracy Birrell… Spent a lot of my teenage years in here.

 

Harry Worth – who remembers doing this?

Alan Esdaile… Used to be a shop in Robertson Street about where Walkers is now. I think it was a shop that sold televisions and we all copied this.

Dennis Torrance… So remember this grew up with Harry Worth on BBC think most at this time tried this

Philip Wood… …..I don’t know why, but there it is.”

Matt Thomas… Used to be able to do this at the bus stops in Queens Rd

Virginia Davis… Remember it well !

Tony Davis… There was also a suit shop, John Colliers I think by the bus stops that used to be in Wellington Place. It was opposite the very old wood and marble decorated Sainsburys

Mark Randall… Did Mr Worth do anything else apart from this ( that people remember)

Dennis Torrance… Made me laugh at most things he did not like some of the modern comedians

Philip Wood… His sitcom was funny and he did Panto.

Jim Breeds… Gosh yes, I think I remember doing that at the shop in Robertson Street!

Diane Knight… me too !!!

Jo Turner… Yep

Flanko Fin Barr… my mum loved him bless her heart

Keith Cowper… I did it!!

Jake Nelson… Me & my mate ‘did the Harry Worth’ every time we passed a certain newsagent’s window!

Alan Pepper… Yes waiting for the bus in Queens Road by John Colliers we all did it early 70’s !
Did find him a bit annoying though to be honest !!

Lesley Brown… Some of us still do!!!

Karen Towner… Remember it well- my dad always had a go.

Michael Wilson… The window of the Sewing shop in London Road Bexhill with my brothers and sisters every Sunday morning in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

Kevin Williams… Still do it!!!

Jim Breeds… Part of Walkers is at No. 47. It’s the one on streetview with curved windows. In 1960s and 1970s directories, that was occupied by Rediffusion. I wouldn’t have thought, though, that the curved windows allow for a Harry Worth moment. And my recollection of doing similar is that it was on the other side of the street.

Eugene Hughes… I used to do that in a shop in Robertson Street too

Joe Knight… Good old Harry bless great comic act

Ernest Ballard… Still do it lol

Monica Bane… Ah! How I remember him doing this trick!

Matt Thomas… Queens Rd shops behind the bus stops

Lucy Pappas… I loved Harry Worth x
