Readers have been reminiscing about the past this week after we decided to take a look back through our archives to 2001 when Border Television celebrated its 40th anniversary.

The popular Carlisle-based television station launched in September, 1961.

To mark the anniversary, a dinner was held at the Border TV headquarters in Harraby attended by many people who had worked for Border over the years, including some who went on to work on national TV such as Fiona Armstrong and Lis Howell. Some of the presenters from the very early days also joined the celebrations.

In the early days, Border mainly concentrated on local programmes, but later became well-known for its light entertainment shows. Everyone remembers Mr & Mrs which was one of ITV’s most-popular daytime quiz shows of the 1970s and early 1980s and presented by Cumbrian Derek Batey.

Here's what you, the readers, had to say.

Some readers clearly recognised friends and family who had worked at ITV Border over the years.

Hayley Blackley brought it to the attention of Ben Wallace-Hunt that she had spotted one of his family members, saying: "Ben Wallace-Hunt - your lovely grandad."

Stephen Hymers was also recalling that he had family members who had worked at the station.

He said: "Two of my family also worked for Border TV- Alan & William Cartner!"

Some readers took joy in remembering some of their favourite programmes of times gone by with friends.

Margaret Winter took the time to tag one of her friends over what was one of their favourite shows.

Dave Cameron, Clare Harmison and Christine Small all joined in with looking back on fond memories of television station and the times it captured.

Shirley Wood said: "Eric Wallace - What a lovely guy he was."
