Another memory stirred
26 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember this being vital Saturday evening viewing for a while when I was a child but was staggered to see it ran in 1959! (I was barely in school!) I can recall that I found the story hard to follow but vividly remember the spider that looked, my Father said, 'like a load of balloons tied together'. He could spoil things like that! It would surely look awful if I were to see it today.

Nevertheless for me, this show was an early introduction to SF that I followed quite avidly as a boy and I also remember - and you can make what you will of this - that I found the word 'factor' interesting and was determined to find out what it meant and try and use it in conversation (That must have been great fun in my infant school!. An early interest in words and writing that I pretty much keep up today.
