Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Glad we have "Beach Head", but still hopeful for a film print! Indeed - although the horse has long since bolted at it were, it is tempting to speculate whether the 35mm print shown at the Trieste Fantasy Film Festival would have been retained if it had scooped first prize (as was the case with The...

Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Nothing new on that front I regret to say - though I’m aware that the chap who thankfully recorded and preserved ‘The Uninvited’ also recalled taping ‘The Chopper’ - unfortunately we can assume that particular tape is long gone... The only other info that had raised my hopes in recent years was the ...

Re: Members past and present

Ah thank you for that - much appreciated. If it’s at all convenient, would you be able to drop him an email? I’ve included my new email address in the last PM I sent to him. Only if it’s convenient to you though - I’d quite understand if you’d prefer him to log on and read the PM first. Many thanks,...

Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Yes, certainly keeping the fingers crossed here. I do recall circa 1996 being sent a 20 minute off-air recording of The Bruce Partington Plans (from the earlier 1965 series). It seemed such a rare gem of a recording at the time - never thought that one day we’d be treated to the wonderful presentati...

Re: Members past and present

Hello, A little cheeky of me, but as I’ve come to a few dead ends already, I wondered whether anyone could PM me regarding recontacting Steve Rogers (of the old Mausoleum Club)? Or if anyone knows him then perhaps letting him know I’m endeavouring to get in touch? The previous addresses are clearly ...

Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Audio of "The Solitary Cyclist" has turned up, apparently. Very exciting news indeed - just missing a few sections apparently, but certainly cause to celebrate :-) Ironic that the last 'near' find was way back circa 2002, when the BBC Learning DVD of Hound of the Baskervilles was released. I recall...

Re: "Out Of The Unknown" music

Yes, I’ve been looking out for this one too. Last online info I saw was from an interview from (I think) late 2019 - a discussion around a series of Radiophonic Workshop releases, beginning with a set focusing on OOTU. I’d imagine a great deal is held up at the moment of course, but certainly this i...

Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Wonderful stuff - the inclusion of the (now colourised) clips from the 1968 Peter Cushing Sherlock Holmes series was a real highlight. Apparently there is also a clip from the episode ‘The Solitary Cyclist’ which was also part of the same preview. Never thought anything else from this series would e...

Re: Google Streetview and Maps Archive TV locations thread

Fascinating to note that the Twickenham location used for the sequence in the 1968 BBC Holmes episode 'The Sign of Four' (where Holmes and Watson follow a trail inadvertently left by the villain of the piece) is virtually unchanged after nearly 50 years. As the sequence begins, their trail takes the...

Re: Menace (1970-1973) and Dead of Night (1972)

...just wish Late Night Horror had survived! It seems that the long rumoured-to-exist, b/w TR of THE CORPSE CAN'T PLAY has at long last surfaced, and is in the hands of Kaleidoscope/Chris Perry. Probably as good an excuse as I'm going to get to re-plug one of the old articles on the earlier Mausole...

Re: Sherlock Holmes

I've been meaning to do this for some time, but I'm trying to locate anything in the way of surviving photos from otherwise missing episodes of the 1968 Cushing series. This was prompted by re-reading the camera script to the lost episode 'Black Peter' recently and vaguely remembering a photo being ...

Re: Sherlock Holmes

I'm probably taking this very interesting thread down another path here, but as I've just re-watched the Cushing version of 'The Blue Carbuncle' (well, 'tis the festive season after all) it seemed like a good opportunity to share some thoughts. Knowing the strained circumstances under which some epi...

Re: PR: Out of the Unknown [bfi]

This kind of news makes irregular posters like me come out of the woodwork :-) To echo what's been said, quite astonishing news....I recall writing a couple of articles for this very site (12+ years ago? Are they still up?) and I would have considered the possibility of a complete box-set sheer fant...
