Re: Archive TV you dreamt

This is maybe almost an Archive TV dream now and was certainly brought about by an interest in an archive TV programme. In 2003 I had driven from Scotland to the Out Of The Unknown book launch in Stourbridge and was presumably pretty tired. That night in my B+B I had a vivid dream that I was involve...

Re: The Flipside Of Dominick Hide

I wonder what happened to it! There is some interesting technology to be seen such as the musician holograms.

Your regular Radio listening

I've been generally listening to Radio 5 Live lately, especially Richard Bacon's afternoon programme which featured Steven Moffat last Thursday and Biddy Baxter yesterday. There's also a good film discussion on Friday afternoons on 5 Live. I think it was deservedly voted the best Radio station 2013 ...

Re: The Flipside Of Dominick Hide

Thanks for the 'extra' info - I have videos. And yes, I do actually think the first one is slightly better too. The search for Dominick and going to the pub is very enjoyable and so 1980! I like how the beach scenes tie the two together. Caleb Line is a great character, played by Patrick Magee, and ...

The Flipside Of Dominick Hide

Ok Dominick needs a slap, but apart from that its quite an engrossing drama. The sequel (Another Flip ..) is just as good although there was maybe a bit too much shown of Alastair Simm/Scrooge. One thing I like about them is the sequence of scenes between the two time periods, the music, how the lan...

Re: The Tomorrow People - 40 years on

Good to see Nicholas Young today. I've got the first three series so far and like to think of it as ITV's Doctor Who!

After finding out what that is I think it is a layer change. The DVD is dual layer and I just tried a third DVD player that plays seamlessly. Thanks!

Re: The All-Purpose Current Doctor Who (2005-) Thread

I bought the Series 7 Part 2 Box Set BBCDVD3802 (I don't often buy New Who) and it was worth it as I got more picture compared to off Freeview. However 'Bells of St. John' freezes briefly at 31m20s just after the waitress says to the doctor "I do love showing off". Does it on the two players I tried...

Re: Nicest Surprise from an old series

Watching Doctor Who Resurrection Of The Daleks I started to wonder what the exterior warehouse scenes at the start of episode one,with its strange connecting bridges between the buildings, look like now. I couldn't find a recent image of them but there's one of another side of the building by the T...

Re: Nicest Surprise from an old series

Have you ever bought an old TV series on spec, only to find that it's not really what you thought it was, and actually rather better?

...Rings of Akhaten was an interesting attempt to do drama without any drama, or events, or story, or ... anything ... The Doctor taking Clara to see something awesome is great to watch. It immediately reminded me of what Rose does in her trip to 'The End Of The World' and of the fact that Doctor W...

Re: Survivors 35 years on: Opinions?

Is the thread from the old forum still accessible?

Re: A memory from the 1960's and questions

Also, the ‘net tells me that Gerald Harper chose the episode ‘A Slight Case Of Reincarnation’ for a TV programme called ‘Star Choice’ in 1969. I’ve never heard of this programme; can anyone confirm it? (as I’d like to rule out that it may have been on, on the same day as an episode of OOTU). Cough....

A memory from the 1960's and questions

I can distinctly remember seeing on the same evening an episode of ‘Out of the Unknown’, (OOTU) and what I’ve always called ‘Adam Adamant’, Adam Adamant Lives apparently! (AAL), and saying to myself “TV was good tonight”. After some research I discovered that there were two such evenings; Thursdays ...

Moonbase 3

40 years ago today the first episode of the BBC Sci-Fi programme 'Moonbase 3' was aired. There only being six episodes doesn't stop me from enjoying watching this now and again. I quite like the serious nature of the episodes, often emphasising the possible psychological aspects of living and woking...
