More RTM shows Simon Does Not Miss From the 80’s

Further to my post last week, these might just jog some of your memories…:

More RTM shows Simon Does Not Miss From the 80’s:

  • Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah. (or its English version, This Day in History)

  • Those ‘informative’ short segments by Filem Negara Malaysia where they teach you how they make things, like wau (kite), statue of a parrot, gasing, etc.

  • Falcon Crest. (Seemed like it went on and on and on…)

  • Paint Along with Nancy. (Actually this one was quite good. She paints with a spatula!)

  • Sapphire & Steel (What on earth is going on?!)

  • Empat Sekawan (Don’t get me started on this one…)

  • TV Pendidikan English Language shows featuring Bing and Bong! (and later Brogg.)

  • Rasa Sayang. Comes on every festival holiday in the morning. You have Rasa Sayang Aidifitri, Rasa Sayang Tahun Baru Cina, Rasa Sayang Deepavali, etc. What’s it about? Never mind…

  • Any TV show featuring A.R. Badul, Jamali Shadat or Hamid Ghurka.

  • Peyton Place.

  • er... peyton place in the 80s? i thought it is much older than that. 70s or even 60s. it was one of the earliest soap opera on tv.

    falcon crest. yes i remember the female fatale there was morgan fairchild, right?

    what about the most famous soap opera (well at that time) - dallas? what era was it in?
