Re: “Increased opportunities for home entertainment"

"In the 1950/60s we were expected to "go out and play" with our pals - and we had an area at least a mile in diameter to wander."

You're making me feel old.

At eight years old my grandmother would send me to market to buy the fruit and veg on a Saturday. The West Indian stallholders tried to persuade me to get mooli and ugli fruit among others. That was a two mile round trip through parts of London now controlled by gangs and I wouldn't be doing it now.
