Re: "ITC Entertained the World" - podcast

I agree with you there, it does work very well, and gets you reaching for the DVD's.

Looking forward to the B/W "Saint", sadly overlooked now, with only the Colour ones still being shown.

Re: Doomwatch--What missing episode would you like to see?

Yes, "Survival Code", there was an audio recreation made and put on YT, although it seems to have gone now, but the script is in the "Doomwatch" book, OOP I think, sadly.

Re: Andy Marriott's Television Show

HTV version was 'Love and Marriage', I think. It was a good show, poor old "Mr & Mrs" though, I wouldn't say it was 'Naff', a decent and gentle show I thought, also "Space Patrol" theme is very musical, and the use of the dreaded word 'Dated'!!! Shame some of the themes are so short though, but I su...

Re: Sunday Night At The London Palladium - First showing on TV

That 73 edition of "SNATLP" was put together from surviving unedited recordings, as the original show doesn't exist.

The game show section is no more when Ted Rodgers takes over, but you should see last Sunday's game show segment again on the next show!

Re: live drama: edited after transmission or not?

I was looking at the KAL listing for "No Hiding Place", and one (Missing) episode, "Alexander's Ragtime Girl", had a fluffed line by Raymond Francis edited out of the Telerecording before being sold overseas, it was telerecorded off-air from a live transmission.

Re: Talking Pictures - more 'No Hiding Place' episodes

The first of those two is from series 4, and the second is the first episode of series 7 from 65, the same run as "Music For Murder" shown the other week.

Great news, looking forward to these.

Well he certainly does a good job, manages to pack a lot of themes in the hour.

Some must come from DVD, as "The Ghosts Of Motley Hall" was obviously from the titles, so no full one of that sadly.

I assume the effects budget ran out, - In the Slaves of jedikiah when the house blows up with the bomb that Jedikiah had planted we see a cheap explosion effect superimposed over a close up of the bomb.

Re: Tommorow people Scripts/pdfs any info?

The train effect is not important enough to do anything about, to be fair, generally the series had a reasonable budget, the first one screened had some really good sets, for instance, it was possibly an over confidence in the new Chromakey technology. With "The Tomorrow People", I rather liked the ...

Re: 2020- Missing Ace of wands(Any progress)

Funny you should mention that, I was thinking about the titles just recently, when I gave the Audios another listen. Series 2 may well have had the same ones as series 3 (maybe even 1 as well), but the wave graphics do still ring a bell, so I'm wondering if they were used for the breaks and end cred...

It's a shame "Traitor" never gets a look in, incredible performance from John Le Mesurier.

Good point from Stearn, there, to be fair, could well be rights driven, hadn't thought of that, so not Networks fault, still not something I would do, so it's a shame, as there is some great material there.

Re: "Star Treatment"

Brought back a few memories there!

Even in the VHS era, I rarely used the timer, and would always tried to record a programme when it was on.

Watching a recording is never as exciting as watching it when broadcast, maybe it's partly because of the feeling of watching it with millions of others!

Re: Oldest surviving episodes of UK-made TV drama

Yes, I mentioned it in the 'Is It All Over' thread, but it was just a brief mention, easily missed. I had a VHS of it for years, thought it was most interesting. Sadly it's not the episode which Patrick Troughton mentioned, when the slide of Sherwood Forrest had been put in the projector upside down!

Just read the interview, fascinating and informative, and explains why he was such a good Actor, giving such memorable performances.

Another Actor who just happens to have done a lot of the TV I have always enjoyed, he popped up in "Rumpole Of The Bailey", a week or so ago.
