Currently watching your channel and the program showing is "Is This Really How They Started" for number 16 you played Erasure - SOMETIMES

This was NOT their first single, the first one was Heavenly Action, followed by Oh L'Amour then Who Needs Love Like That

Sometimes was their breakthrough top 20 hit and the one that kept them in a record deal with mute.

Thank you

Mrs Whitehurst :

They've probably changed their name for the Christmas season, as they have done before.

Paul:

Now 80's is broadcast on COM8 from Hannington, which is just 20 km away from you and you are predicted to get good reception of all the multiplexes. Do you get More4+1 on programme 86? If so then you should be getting programme 88 as it's on the same multiplex. If not, then do you get any of the HD programmes? If not then your equipment may not be suitable for receiving HD services. Some of the services on COM7 or COM8 are not HD but you need equipment capable of receiving Freeview HD to get any of the programmes on those multiplexes.

Mark: Now 80s is broadcast on the COM8 multiplex, which you should have good reception of from Emley Moor. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Are you missing any other channels such as BBC Four HD?
