Re: Overseas (Archives and Schedules)

Australia didn't seem to be too far behind either, I was regularly getting tapes of Off-Air material back at the start of the 80's. Lots of stuff, "Doctor Who", "Doctor In Charge", "Whodunnit", and "The Tomorrow People", (grotty looking colour film recordings) to name a few. Some more good listings ...

Re: Morecambe and Wise jumping ship

The Beeb did fight back a little, poaching Kenny Everett from Thames, although in the first "M&W" Thames show they were dumped by the BBC at Thames, for Kenny's first Beeb show, he was buried by Thames and dug up by the BBC!...I quite like the way the stars seemed to be treated between BBC and ITV! ...

Re: "The Golden Shot"

It's definitely Sheila White, in the pictures, there's about 1200 images on Shutterstock from the show, mostly from the Bob Monkhouse run, there are some from the Norman Vaughan shows, but sadly not many from the Charlie Williams ones. Really helpful when most of the editions are gone, although ther...

"The Golden Shot"

I don't know what paperwork exists for it, apart from some scripts, but it would be interesting to know. Unless there is one on TV Brain, there doesn't seem to be a credit for Actress Sheila White's appearance on the 7/6/70 edition, which also features Hughie Green and an "Op Knocks" skit on the for...

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

Interesting thought, but I would rather it was something along the lines of fatcat's idea, a motherload of A-R material. It's something like 14 episodes of "No Hiding Place" so far, so it's a little odd it's mostly that, (apart from "The Barnstormers", which has yet to be screened, not even sure how...

Re: Journey of a Lifetime - Network release

Oh yes, probably to do with that with "Journey Of A Lifetime".

I should have remembered that, as a family member who was a teacher used to order VHS copies of the BBC Shakespeare series, up until the 90's, I think.

Re: Morecambe and Wise jumping ship

Well, their ATV series was very popular, but they obviously soared with the BBC, when they left for Thames ( as good as Thames was) they were not up to the BBC's polished production, and a lot of sketches were re-cycled from the BBC shows. The promise of films, turned out to be the TV movie, "Night ...

BTW if you spot Vacant Possession in the TP schedule (they do show it fairly frequently) it is from the AR series Blackmail

Yes, it did break suddenly during that scene, so hopefully the end of it is still there.

The print of "Death On The Doorstep" was very good. Eric Lander dried at one point and was prompted off screen and Ivor Dean gave a wonderfully camp performance. Nice to see Kevin Stoney and a brief scene with Joy Stewart. For me, "Music For Murder" is the best one of those screened by TPTV, so far,...
