    Default Do you remember TV1 and CCV?

    2 Channels. TV 1 and CCV, with Mnet Open Time on Sundays at 5 pm? Those were dark times.

    I remember Riaan Cruywagen reading the news.... whatever happened to that guy?
    I came. I saw. I concurred.

    I know. It was a joke.

    Apparently the SABC tried to get rid of him, but then peeps in Pretoria North stopped believing the news.

    Riaan Cruywagen doesn't read the news, he tells the world what to do next.

    The worst part of TV1 back in the day was all the Afrikaans "oorgeklankte" shows. You had to tune the radio to Radio 2000 to listen to out-of-sync (most of the time) English simulcast.

    Tuning into radio 2000 was torture. Apartheid torture.

    I remember Acapulco Heat in Afrikaans

    The worst thing about it was hearing what tv sounded like through a real sound system instead of the tiny, tinny tv speakers. And then wishing it could always sound like that...
