July 10th - Tony Barwick

Today, July 10th 2018, would have been Tony Barwick's 84th birthday.

What better way to celebrate his life and work than with the new interview double CD from Fanderson.

At almost two hours...

Space: 1976

42 years ago, in 1976, we were sweltering in the heatwave (some things don't change!) and eating Space: 1999 ice lollies in the park. We were also between series 1 and 2 of this programme.

I loved the series - always partial to a nice Hedgehog Sandwich too. Haven't seen most of them in a long time, but watched them all the time in 1979-1980 or whatever. I suspect your quote is a...

Good question. I bought a copy yesterday, but will shamefully admit that I haven't opened it yet!

It looks to be a 1 CD release, as it has a total running time of about 77 minutes. On the...

That's brilliant thanks! So it seems that they did show them on weekday mornings, during the summer holidays, but not until 1980! So it won't be that one! And they did show them on Saturday...

Yeah, it was badly treated by ITV over both Years.

I watched Space: 1999 on ATV during 1978 and I'm fairly sure some of them were shown on a Sunday afternoon.

YTV remains a bit of a mystery,...

I certainly remember it as being a Saturday morning in early 1977 but, in all honesty, 41 years later, I could be wrong. It could have been a Sunday afternoon in late 1977! Pretty sure it was '77...

I clearly remember my first taste of Space: 1999 Year 2. It was the episode 'The Exiles' and, as far as my memory serves me, it was early 1977 and I'm sure it was a Saturday morning. Either that or...

I am sure that, early 1977, YTV were showing Space: 1999 Year 2 in the mornings - I think on a Saturday. I do remember the early 1980s repeats, 1981 I think, when they showed them late at night.

As we approach SHADOCON2 (30th June) and with the welcome news that Suzanne Neve will be making her convention debut, for some reason I got thinking as to how much more 'pleasing' (for want of a...
