Ahh the clangers- superb stuff- all that companies stuff was superb, must track down some Bagpuss!

I loved Ain't Half Hot Mum as a kid, I know it has been accused of streotypes and stuff and I havent seen a whole episode recently to judge- but growing up it just made me a laugh and I dont even really remember the Indian stuff at all save as a backdrop- just the army guys. And never been a better or funnier screen Sergeant than Windsor Davies.

The fantastic Danger Mouse- they just dont make em like this any more sadly. Now kids TV seems to be swamped with American imports.



You know its not really suprising I grew up to go through a mushroom eating LSD phase given I grew up watching this 60's induced madness!
The greatest intro ever to a kids program.



This used to freak me out- especially the witch in her kettle.

Love The Prisoner. Marvelous stuff. The remake was shocking.

They have finally released Space: Above and Beyond on to DVD in the UK after about 15 years!

Still annoyed that it got cancelled after the first series... was so good!

Petty - you should try and get hold of the series. I think you might like it.

I'd never heard of that show Lance- but a quick google and it seems like quality, innovative sci-fi full of promise. Which no doubt explains it getting canned after 1 series- what is it with Fox execs? Evil or Very Mad

It was good. It was quite gritty... like an early version of Battlestar remake. Dealt with a lot of the social issues that series like star trek did, but in a more real way (as real as sci-fi gets).

I would definitely recommend watching if you can get you hands on it. Its one of those programs that I would hate to see remade but wish it had been allowed to go on longer which is unfortunately too late now.

Only 5 more episodes to watch until the pre-mature ending. Luckily Slash's new album will be on my doorstep next week so have something else to look forward to.

Press Gang- this is where my love affair withthe writing of a certain Mr Moffat began- although I didnt know who he was at the time of course. This stated when I was about 15 on Childrens TV- the story of a school newspaper- as I was News Editor on my school newspaper I was always going to be drawn to it- but I stayed for the writing and so began a long association of sheer viewing pleasure at everythig Moffat subsequently wrote. Quality childrens TV this was.





(Didn't harm it either that at the time I fancied almost every single female cast member! (Well I was a teenager at the time) He always has had an eye for casting the ladies Mr Moffat- a perk of the job!)

In a related item- you can find it on wiki under Moffats entry- his first marriage did not go so well (he wrote an award winning sitcom based on it-thats a writer for you) and his wife had an affair. When Moffat found out, and also that the lover in question was a huge fan of Press Gang Moffat replied, ""Well, did he have to f**k my wife? Most people just write in!". Razz

My admiration for him only grows!
