I bought this boxed set the minute it became available on Amazon. I notice that all of the other reviews so far have been male. I quite understand this as I feel like I am the only female on this planet that hates soaps and rom-coms, probably due to having been sat in front of the telly by an equally sci fi and crime series obsessed mother from a very early age. The Champions was just about the very first television programme I can just about barely remember watching (I was about 6 when it came out). Yet even then it had left a favourable lasting impression on me as programmes filled with good plots, fun, humour, adventure and action all rolled into one. I was a bit apprehensive because obviously my perspective on what makes a good programme has changed since I was six. However I was not disappointed on buying this boxed set and re-watching the programmes again after all these years. I did notice on that back of the packaging that the claim is made that 3 of the episodes have a voice over by the "Champions" but I have only been able to find 2 of the episodes with this special feature (i.e. The Beginning and Auto Kill). If anyone can tell me which is the 3rd one I would be happy to try to locate it on my DVD? That aside. What can I say. Maybe it is nostalgia for me but either way I have re-watched the whole set now and every now and again I still pick out an episode to re-watch. This is a DVD set that looks like it will keep me interested and occupied forever. Definitely my favourite viewing ever.

If you loved The Champions first time around, you'll love it all over again. I was mad about Stuart Damon when at primary school and I've enjoyed the fantasy once again in my early forties. I can still remember the rush of excitement when I tripped home from school all set to watch The Champions. Looking back at the 'Thunderbirds' technology and the very wooden Tremayne, I can't believe how they got away with it, but it's simply great. My whole family have laughed along the way but have thoroughly enjoyed the ride. This is a must buy and worth every penny at this bargain price. The box set is very nicely put together and the colours are as sharp as anything on TV today. Well done to Carlton for releasing the complete 30 episodes in this giant box set. All I want now is to get the fantastic theme tune to install as my mobile ringtone. Take a nostalgic trip back 30 years and enjoy this excellent stuff!

Now some people think its odd how a show that was made at the end of the 60s and aired from 1968 through the early 70s could appeal to someone not born until the early 80s. It was my mother who brought this show to my attention, when it was repeated on BBC 2 on a Friday evening at 6 o'clock during the early 90s. After viewing the first episodes I was hooked.
This series was from the same genre as Man from U.N.C.L.E, Randall & Hopkirk Deceased and also came around the same time as all the Gerry Anderson productions such as Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. All shows that appealed to me as a child.
This series was my favourite though as it had that little something extra. The show focused on three secret agents of the organisation Nemisis, who during a mission to recover a biological agent, during their escape their plane crashes in the Himalayas. Doomed to die up there on the mountains, when all seems lost, a lost civilisation of Tibetan Monks save their lives and are also given special powers such as super strength, speed, agility, telepathy and ESP. The three agents head back to the world where they can use their new powers in fight against villains intent on destruction, drug-smuggling, espionage and kidnapping.
The characters themselves were very interesting, Craig Sterling (Stuart Damon) was the American of the group, very slick and certainly James Bond-ish, the ladies man of the group. Richard Barrett (William Gaunt) was the English opposite of Sterling, very calm, relaxed, calculating and very dry in personality and humour. Sharron Macready (Alexandra Bastedo) was the female of the group, trained in a variety of fields and having the beauty to match her powers that set her high above any other female agent character in any other show.

Three agents of the "International peace agency" called "Nemesis" suffer a plane crash in the Himalayas on a dramatic return journey from a mission to China. They are saved and healed by an old man from a reclusive Tibetan civilization, and given superhuman powers.
This is the introduction to this classic British series made by ITC in 1968. This series is simply just fun. You cannot take this too seriously because its beauty is that it is pure escapism. To some people it may seem like a lot of nonsense and hokum, but for me the show works because it is tongue in cheek escapist good fun that isn't too bogged down in depressing and serious true to life stories. It also works because it comes from a quality company ITC. The series is well produced with good pace and inventive plots. The stories are outside the box.
There are four main characters. There is the boss of "Nemesis" called Tremayne. Then there are the three agents with special powers that help them to maintain peace in the world. American Craig Sterling, British agent Richard Barrett and Sharon McCready. They have senses that are finely tuned. They can hear, see and smell better than the average human. They also have enhanced strength and stamina. And they all have a telepathic link to each other.
Their boss Tremayne who is based in Geneva gives them assignments that are aimed at avoiding incidents of world tension. The three agents work closely as a team and get into all sorts of adventures. They always keep their special powers secret to protect the anonymity of the lost city that gave them these special attributes.
This gives some light humour as often they have to come up with an alternative explanation to give to Tremayne as to how they managed to complete their mission.
