Those were the days . . .
Talk of student life with our seventeen year old son prompted me to buy a set of The Young Ones for his birthday. I remember watching this episode in our student vile house-share in Streatham with its features of dry rot, loo that froze in winter and unspeakably filthy kitchen.
