And, for the uninitiated, here's how to lay an open fire, one of my jobs before school. Yes, kids, we had to do jobs around the house!!

Newspaper on the bottom to catch fire first, with home-made firelighters made from long, folded and twisted strips of newspaper above that. Layers of thin kindling to burn once that was established with lumps of coal as the top layer. Once that was all burning well, it was stoked up with coke (no, not that sort); vicious stuff that used to spit out burning embers onto the unwary/unlucky. I have no idea what the 'carbon footprint' of that would be now.

There was a bonus though - toast/crumpets by the fire was the best

People on the terraces with transistor radios and single earphones listening to Radio 2 commentary of another match and occasionally providing a score update. They were particulately sought after when the third round FA Cup draw was being made after the match - a crowd would gather round in hushed anticipation.

Fields of burning stubble (although that probably didn’t happen much in London/Croydon anyway).

I used to listen to the commentary of the game whilst watching it, that was weird, but it drowned out the moany old twat across the aisle from me.

And cricket in summer. Used to join in with big games on the Rotary Field on Brighton Road. Once made a great diving catch there when I was about 10 - the pinnacle of my cricket career.

All of the above. And when they didn't work, you would call radio rentals. The bloke would turn up and do all the same stuff you did, but with more purpose. If that failed and you were lucky, they would give you another telly instead

Trying to time your button press for the 0.0001 seconds between the DJ speaking and the first vocal when recording a song off the radio.

(Then getting pissed off three minutes later when Bruno Brookes interrupted the final chorus.)
