Loose Rivets, I've probably picked up the wrong end of the stick but am rather confused. You say that you watch Freeview (ie terrestrial TV) but speak of a Satellite amp. Is that a trade name or is...

That's all it needed to win the BoB, maintaining Air Superiority by day. Even the genius of the Fuhrer didn't envisage an invasion by night!

Glad that somebody remembered, thank you SLXOwft! Yes and no about the "radar women". It's a typical woke Beeb piece. Never mind about the courage and sacrifice of the pilots and other males, let's...
