Cloris Leachman (1926-2021)

I never really knew who she was (being a British teenager) until Kermit the frog enthusiastically introduced her at the start of an episode of 'The Muppet Show' back in 1976 I think it was. From then on, she was logged in my mind along with all the other American comedians that the show introduced m...

Louise Pajo (1940-2020)

Passed away last month aged 80.

Doctor Who fans are likely to remember her from 'Seeds of Death', Patrick Troughton era.

I remember Louise from two episodes of UFO - 'Kill Straker!' and 'Court Martial'.

Re: Misremembered titles

Alf Garnett, yes you're right. I remember everyone called it that. I think the Daily Mirror used to list "The Phil Silvers Show" as "Sergeant Bilko" when it was on BBC1? Wasn't it remade into a film in 1996 with Steve Martin, where they did officially call it "Sgt Bilko"? The other series I remember...

To my surprise, I once heard someone say Mr Who instead of Dr Who, but that was a one off.

Re: Star Cops

It's an interesting thought Andrew. It does make you wonder what 'Star Cops' would have looked, and more importantly, have felt like. Some shows though I feel work better on tape. Brian Clemens 'Thriller' for example. This series has always worked for me, and one I think they got right from the word...

Re: Most in need of a reissue.....

I will nominate the wartime series Pathfinders. Although I have mixed feelings about the series itself, it could certainly do with an upgrade. I suppose we should always be grateful when an obscure TV show such as this is released at all, but really, the 16mm film transfers in the currently availabl...

Re: "ITC Entertained the World" - podcast

I've recently bought, and am enjoying watching, the Bluray release of The Zoo Gang.

And this is all thanks to the podcast.

Jaz's fun approach, his frank and honest discussion with his guests, certainly give me the inspiration I need to go and watch the shows again.

Re: Jacqueline Scott (1932-2020)

She also had a very distinctive voice, instantly recognisable behind the 'ape' make-up in the Planet of the Apes TV series.
She had two separate, and very memorable roles - playing Zantes in 'The Good Seeds', and Dr Kira in 'The Surgeon'.

I have rarely seen Target since it was originally on, but I do remember enjoying it and I liked Patrick Mower. It was all shot on film for one thing, and not a lot of other BBC produced content was. So it stood out from all the other cheaper looking VT programmes. It was also unusual because it was ...

Re: Is it all over....?

Also, will we ever see "Target", perhaps one of the last really problematical titles. Are there rights issues with Target? Why is it problematical? I thought it was a very gritty series for the BBC in its day, and I'm guessing it was made as an attempt to rival The Sweeney. Yet it seems there has n...

I've signalled my interest. I was about to dig the series out for another watch soon anyway. I think something like this is a great idea to get people involved and chatting about the series again. Let's hope more are free to join in.
