When I was about 2 my dad appeared in a live TV show. My mum and I watched it together, and I distinctly remember it. When I saw my dad I shouted "Come out of the telly daddy" and ran to look behind the TV to see how he had got in.

I used to be scared of the BBC 2 logo, which was two brown parallel lines in a 2 shape, because I thought they were question marks. I didnt know the question and I didnt know the answer.

When I was little my dad told me that the girl playing noughts and crosses with the clown doll on the Test Card was me [this was 30 odd years ago in the UK] and I thought it was me [she did look a lot like me], I couldn't figure out how they'd managed to film me playing noughts and crosses with a doll that I didn't own ...

As A Child: I thought watching the live moon landing when I was almost 3 on the TV set was pre-recorded and happened in the 1940s cause it was in black and white like the old TV sitcoms

When I was a kid, I used to believe that the actors on tv would run from one channel to the next as you changed the channel. I guess I figured they were really little people running around inside my tv set.

When visiting my relatives in Norfolk many years ago they had a new Colour TV. The picture was really fuzzy. I complained to my dad who told me that people in Norfolk had different eyes and to them it was a perefect picture!!

when i was a kid i saw in a magazine a picture of some people on a ski lift. for quite a long time after that i thought that power/telephone lines were in fact chair lift lines which enabled actors who had been shrunk to get into the back of the tv set. and perform live.

Back in the 70s in France, there was still a TV chanel in black and white. One day the speaker proudly anounced that they were now using color pencils and the next second, the screen was nothing but colors. I imagined armies of people whose only job was to color the images. I thought it was meant to be a difficult job, considering the efforts it took me to color just one image. I was four.

I used to think that when I was watching tv and I turned it off that when I put the tv back on it would be the same show at the same point as when I turned it off.

When i was about 5 yrs old..Tv Dinners had become the "new thing". I was fascinated by this because I thought the Tv was where You cooked them.

When I was little, I always thought actors in TV and movies always dressed and acted the same way they did in their shows. For example, I only knew Cesar Romero as the Joker from "Batman", so I thought he went about in real life in his Joker outfit and make-up.

When I was about 10 years old and saw a pretty woman on tv I thought I could take the four screws off the front of the tv and pull the woman out and hug her and noone would know it was me.

When I was little, I used to think there were people that lurked in the bushes to see what others were watching on TV and that that's where ratings came from.

This was when I was very young and the BBC weather used to consist of a man walking by several maps and sticking pictures of clouds and suns to the map. Probably because adult world seemed aloof and bizarre, I used to imagine that the weather man was infact held inside a giant dome covered in weather maps, and he was doomed to spend an eternity in this empty twilight zone walking around his vast prison reading the weather.
