Remember this one guys? These programs were so 'campy' that I enjoyed them when I was a teenager. Loved Emma Peel! Just noticed they lasted about as long as the Beatles did 1961-1969. lol And that music used to get me humming that little ditty at the very end. ha-ha
Mr Kite. I was a big fan of "Danger Man" [called "The Secret Agent" in America, I think], so "The Prisoner" was a treat [apart from the ending!] I always thought Patric McGoohan would have been a good James Bond. Rocky, I'm old enough to remember the first series of "The Avengers" with Ian Hendry. It was shown on Saturday nights, and me and my sister were allowed to stay up and watch it. Dianna Rigg was arguably the best female lead, with Joanna Lumley a close second. I met her once at a function and she was stunning. I also met Gareth Hunt and was amazed that he had ever been an action star, being, shall we say, deficient in the height department.
Pothos, Honor Blackman arrived in the second series, replacing Ian Hendry. She was a widow, her husband being killed in Africa. Those early series played the story straight, the camp, tongue-in-cheek approach came later, in tune with Sixties fashion.
The 1960 movie "Beat Girl" featured a John Barry soundtrack. The film seems rather quaint when viewed now, as it portrays teenagers rebelling by, gasp, going to coffee bars! This is my favourite track, featuring the guitar work of the great Vic Flick:
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run. Me: It's not a Beatles song. Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right? Me: Yes. Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
The film "Clockwork Orange" was controversial. and for several years, withdrawn from screening [at the director's insistence!] The music chosen to complement the visuals was outstanding, here's an example:
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus

The End: Hey all - come along to the 12th Annual Beatle Forum meet up - it's in The Grapes at midday on Saturday 24th August! Will be great to see some new faces as I'm fed up with the old ones!
