Apologies if this question has been asked in the past but I was wondering if the other surviving episode from series 1, episode 6 you should have got here sooner will actually get a proper electronic conversion to 625 lines? The first episode the good ones are all dead got a professional transfer fr...

Re: the original Kitten Kong

Didn't someone actually record the Australian showing of the original kitten Kong from 16mm B&W recording but recorded over the tape with the 72 version unaware of the originals significance? Also I saw on Facebook a while back that Phillip Morris said he had a 16mm copy of kitten kong but I assume ...

Question-- Audio quality on film productions vs Videotape productions

Just a quick enquiry, what I have noticed with most (not all) 60/ 70s programmes is that the sound quality on a production made on videotape that the studio audio quality is much better and clearer sounding than something shot on a studio on film, like in the avengers. The sound of the dialogue soun...

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

The only PAL master tapes to survive from series 7 and 8 are The ambassadors of death Part 1, The Claws of axos Part 1, The claws of axos Part 4 and the daemons Part 4.All look great compared the NTSC tapes for other episodes and decent but not as good film recordings. Such a shame the NTSC tapes th...

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

So it may be that only 2 episodes from series 1 was sold to the CBC as part of a deal or was the whole of series 1 sold but the rest of the tapes got misplaced??

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

2 episodes from series 1 Tommorow, the rat and the episode train and de train and the majority of series 2 except the last episode, are all from Canadian NTSC tapes that were returned in the 80s or early 90s,these were used in the dvd release

It's strange because fredowl told me he noticed (I quickly checked it out) that the smile camera script mentions end credits were the side profile shot of tarots head on the scripts with the sine wave going through it with the credits superimposed over his head. So that seems definite. Can you remem...

I know you have told me you can't recall too much about the original opening titles, but I was talking to fredowl on twitter and he said it might have been possible that the series 3 opening titles were used for series 1 and 2 as well but that doesn't match up with viewers memories of the oscillosco...

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?

I prefer to watch old programmes with the original effects, but it's nice to have optional cgi ones just for the fact it would show us what the effects would look like if 3d cgi had existed at the time along with green screen. Though the original effects have a certain charm to them and that is why ...

Re: Tommorow people Scripts/pdfs any info?

I like the first and second series the most. I really like the Vanishing earth, Kevin Stoney is great as usual in it and the plot is pretty decent. The idea of the haunted house having a teleport to a mine at the earth's core is great and the Spidron hologram with the water dripping down the glass t...

Drifting slightly from the topic of scripts but still about the tomorrow people, is there any information at all as to if any of the film inserts exist for the tomorrow people?
