Home made Starship Adventure
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Amazed to see comments from others remembering this program, since even dedicated tube-heads of my acquaintance (some of them professionals !) don't recall this one. It must have a been a regional ITV distribution thing in the U.K. I can vouch for the fact that it was screened on Ulster Television (UTV) pre-1974 (though I'm not sure exactly when).

Unfortunately, my recollection of it extends to little more than the unforgettable title and that a solid part of its appeal lay in the fact that the titular ship was relatively easy to make from old cardboard toilet rolls. This belongs to a select group of T.V. shows ('Ace of Wands' and 'The Tomorrow People' spring to mind) that you could emulate and play outdoors - often on 'bicycling' spacecraft !
