Re: Who Remembers?

It has already been on GMB that complaints have been raised over re-showing it. I saw this post on Twitter, which sums it up very nicely I think - Mark Lockwood @MarkLock101 26 Nov I can’t get past the argument that every TV has an off button, if you don’t want to watch something, switch it off/ove...
