A fun memory from Christmas 1980/81 TV past,
This review is from: Stainless Steel and the Star Spies [DVD] (DVD)
For years I had this memory of a TV show that I had seen once as a child, that had never been repeated and had never been released on VHS. I had these images in my mind, and snippets of dialogue. Well, it must have made an impression on me as a child for the memory to last for 30 plus years. I did not know what it was called, or who made it. I just remember it was at Christmas and I was young, in fact I remember that I had just had a bath when I watched it.
So fast forward 30 years and Network release it on DVD, and I recognise it immediately! I find out that it was shown on ITV on New Year's Day 1981 - so I was only 7 when I saw it!
The films is a fun parody of Gerry Andersson's classics like Thunderbirds.
An interesting curio from my childhood - but one that I had remembered.
I watch it with my kids every Christmas now!
