    British TV Show About Mythical Creatures

    Can you help identify this TV show? It was broadcast in the 1970's on the BBC and the time slot would be mid to late morning during the Summer holidays. Same time they used to show things like 'Why Don't You?' and 'The Banana Splits'. My memory tells me that it was presented by David...

    Local TV Weirdness

    Kind of like the Max Headroom Pirate broadcast, this happened about an hour ago here in the West of England. BBC Breakfast handed over to the regional bulletin as per at around 6.55, but instead of the local anchor we got her voice, but something else entirely in vision (which does, oddly, fit...

    Television Debate On Exorcism (1974)

    Just stumbled on this little gem.. a british audience discussion program following the release of the exorcist. It's fascinating in multiple ways. It gives some credence to the popular belief that the movie strongly upset cinema goers at the time. Just hearing awfully awfully british voices...

    Edge Of Darkness (2009)

    I very recently saw Edge of Darkness, with Mel Gibson. At the end of the film, I saw that it had been dedicated to someone who had died in 2009. I looked him up and saw that he had been the writer of the British miniseries Edge of Darkness produced in 1985. Needless to say, I was curious about...

    Archaeology: Interpreting The Evidence

    I heard a really interesting programme on BBC Radio4, the other day. Various differing interpretations based on the data retrieved from excavations on ancient sites, in this case the enormous Iron Age site of Maiden Castle. The well known British archaeologist Sir Mortimer Wheeler dug the...

    Roy Jay

    Remember Roy Jay? I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't, but he was a British comedian circa 1984 who dressed in a convict's outfit covered in arrows and told jokes in between saying, "Spook!" and "Slither!". It's just that since he disappeared from view in the mid-eighties, there have...

    Doctor Who [Spoilers]

    Fortean Doctor Who I've taken a bit of stick from other Doctor Who fans, so I'm starting a thread about him. Quite a few of the stories are inspired by things Fortean. Terror of the Zygons - Loch Ness The Web of Fear - Yetis The Green Death - Giant Maggots (great on a Saturday tea-time)...
