THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO REMEMBER THIS SHOW COULDN'T FILL A TELEPHONE BOX.
This late 60's British action series is never referred to by anyone these days and I suspect that few people even remember it.It was not a success and is never revived and may not even exist anymore as it was made on videotape and not filmed like other action shows of that era.Clinton Greyn was dashingly heroic as Captain Robert Virgin and it is a shame that this Welsh actor did not become a star although he did move to Hollywood in the early 70s and worked with the likes of Richard Burton and Pete Duel(!!).The series was pure spoof but the action was plentiful although because of the way it was made the fights were somewhat stagey.At least it had fight scenes though which is more than can be said for just about every boring British series of the last 15 years!
