I was remembering Chanakya the TV serial based on the life of a great scholar and politician, and started looking on youtube. I was glad to find a lot of those videos uploaded mostly by this user.
Finding this gave me enough motivation & incentive to look for other serials from the old days.
I have not yet met with a lot of success for some of them, but found some great blog posts with a lot of comments which made me relive my childhood. The best post I liked had tons of comments which spoke about a lot of serials that I had forgotten about.
Some of my favourites from that era are:
dekh bhai dekh
yeh jo hai zindagi
The more I think about it & go through the list I feel that the quality of TV stuff with just 1 channel was way more than the best of all channels right now. May be it s more nostalgia, but right now I am having difficulty coming up with a few good serials in today's
I would probably buy DVDs for the the above & many others like potli baba ki, buniyaad, nukkad, vikram baital, surabhi, flop show, udaan, neev if they are available. Are they ?
There was also Hercule poirot, Oshin, Raven, Street hawk to give us a little international exposure.
Now I get back to my quest for finding this stuff online or on DVDs.
Update: Found this on youtube, which had a lot of videos from that era.
