those stone steps!

When it was first transmitted - didn't realise it was as late at 1972

make it goaway!

Well, I found the DVD this year in my local library. Since it's often mentioned in sci-fi round-ups I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm not saying how old I am.....

Unorthodox video recording

Saw it on first transmission in my early twenties.

Science in Action!

Christmas 1972, I was 15. Watched it with my Dad.
