Miss Freda Rantzen of Leamington Spa: 'Yes - it's a great shame. I watched it regularly. I'm dimly related to Esther, I'm her aunt by marriage. I enjoy the programme because Esther always brings up both funny things and serious matters.'
Mrs D Wilcox of Peterborough: 'Yes. We preferred it when it was on a Saturday, but we will miss it. I was about eight when it first came on - then my parents tuned into it every week.'
Captain G Campbell of Liverpool: 'Miss what? Well, I hate to admit it but I've never listened (sic) to it - so I absolutely won't miss it.'
Mr A Mills of Hereford: 'To tell you the truth, two years ago 'yes', but now 'no'. I think I just got bored with it. It used to be on a Sunday, but when it was switched to Saturday night it clashed with my one night out. That was also the start of my losing interest in it altogether.'
Mrs H Leader of Wolverhampton: 'Not really, I don't really watch it. I caught it sometimes when nothing else was on, but it was never a great favourite.'
Mrs C Fletcher of Ilkeley: 'Yes, we find it quite entertaining and enlightening on lots of issues. Is it definitely going to be stopped? Oh, we shall miss it. Even if it was started up with a new cast I suppose the essence of it would be gone. What a shame.'
Mr Philip Dwane of Bread N Butter cafe, Manchester: 'No. Early on it was a reasonable programme but not towards the end. It was the same tired old formula week after week.'Reuse content
