Penny arcade on TV

American, British, French or German? We want to know about it.

A very positive outcome.
I was slightly uneasy when I first heard of it. Shades of Martin Bashir!

Lovely, just watched it on catchup. You can always tell Pete's machines, gleaming like the day they were made!

Can’t wait to visit the arcade again. Thought programme did it justice. Hopefully more will visit this summer now

I've ended up watching all 5 programs as Mrs cowman liked the first one.. shame there was no more vintage arcades televised but I suppose there's not many left. Finishing at Blackpool. Where I don't think there's a one....?

Well Jimmy
there is plenty of opportunity for someone to open a vintage arcade in Blackpool ... there is a blackpool museum opening soon with funding and grants from the national heritage and lottery ... £13 million ( that should buy a couple of Bryans :) )

https://www.visitblackpool.com/latest-n ... s-officia/

It really needs a penny arcade ( especially with some Hawtins Machines )

They asked me to put one of my Hawtins / Ditchburn Jukeboxes on display ... but they wanted it in a glass case and with piped music for a 5 year period ... it would destroy itself it needs to work to stay alive :) ... it inspired me to open my own museum that people could hear it play ... but why not have penny machines that people can interact with in the Museum ... it's a huge part of what they want.

all the best ... Dicky

It's a shame there's not a vintage arcade at Blackpool any more. I'd say it's the biggest seaside resort in the UK.
