Rediffusion ending after 63 years
I remember Rediffusion. I was quite young, I saw it only as a speaking box, some sort of a radio on wire. My parents didn't subscribe to it for very long and I have no fond memories of it; I had found it irritating but why does that matter. What counts was the emotional attachment that so many here have developed to it.
No doubt my generation will have their Rediffusion equivalent. My fondest memory of Rediffusion was my mom holding my hands us we wallked passed this building on many of our shopping trips. I would looked through the window at those boxes. I found them fascinating as long as they are not at my home.
