The Best 'Kid-ult' programme of the seventies, ever!
on 18 October 2011
You only have to read other reviews to see just how great this series was when it was first broadcast back in the seventies. I won't comment on the series itself as it goes without saying that it was absolutely superb. I'll comment more on this new 'Network' edition. This is a two-disc edition, with the entire series being housed on the first DVD and the second DVD gives you 'tasters' of other programmes that were made around the same era by HTV West. 'Sky' is featured on there, as well as 'King of the Castle' amongst others, and I already have the DVD of 'Sky' (again distributed by Network). The only thing I think that's a shame is that it doesn't feature the interviews with Peter Graham Scott and Gareth Jones that were featured on the previous 'Second Sight' single disc edition. However, I'm really pleased that 'Network' managed to get the distribution rights as the 'Second Sight' edition seemed to go out of print shortly after it first came out. At least it will have a much longer shelf life with 'Network', and they've released many other great programmes from the past. Get this DVD today and enjoy QUALITY TV - in the days when X-Factor and Big Brother had never even been heard of! Oh if only we could turn back the clock! Happy Day to all who read this! If you watch this series you will indeed all be happy ones!
