With all the rubbish on today I think back to when I though TV was a lot better for its time. And for me the best time for TV was in the 60s. ITV was not afraid to put American programs on and we had our own home grown series that easily competed with the American show. Look what we had in the 60s The Avengers Danger Man The Prisoner Callan Public Eye Man in a Suitcase And some goodies from producer Monty Berman The Saint The Baron The Champions Department S Randell and Hopkirk Deceased Strange Report Doctor Who started in 63 The BBC had some fairly decent drama series on and the outing in to the spy genre were: The Mask of Janus and the follow up series The Spies both staring Dinsdale Landon. Comedy classics like; Steptoe and Son Till Death Us Do Part Monty Python's Flying Circus Dads Army For the children there were Gerry Andersons; Fireball XL5 Thunderbirds Stingray Captain Scarlet. From America we had; The Outer Limits The Twilight Zone The Fugitive The Man From UNCLE Star Trek Mission: Impossible The Invaders I-Spy Also there were plenty of cowboy series still on, one I enjoyed was Branded There were always some comedy program on from America on like Bewitched The Beverly Hillbillies The Adams Family The Munsters. OK the production values where not up to todays standards but as I said in the opening line for its time I think the 60s was TVs finest hour.
