Ooooh! I haven't looked but I bet it has Tipping Point and Bargain Hunt. And every episode of Midsomer Murders... :rolleyes:

I've never understood why Tipping Point is on so often in care homes! All jangly noise and confusion! I see this channel has a "pet babies" section in the previews. I bet we'll all be having a look at that later.....

The coin tipping slider game was a big favourite of our youth using the big old pennies that you rolled in hoping to win a handful of pennies. Very popular here in our house for sure.
