    There's A Twitter Account That Just Tweets TV Listings From Thirty Years Ago Today

    It will make you wish that TV was of a simpler time, a time before Come Dine With Me was on thirteen times in a row on Channel 4.

    So there's an account that just tweets this.

    No detail. No insight. Just this.

    It wouldn't really work for today's TV schedules.

    It was a bit of an accident, really. I was trying to think of a way of doing a Twitter feed that people would read every day, without the pressure of coming up with funny material on a daily basis. It struck me that everybody watches TV, and people love talking about the telly of their youth, so I figured they might like to read what was being broadcast on this day.

    We will now never forget you classic television. Never.
