ah one of Australias finest gift to the world
6 November 2007 | by (gibraltar) – See all my reviews

Another North-Easterner who remembers Tyne-Tees showing Phoenix Five. I don't think I was at school when it was on so we must be talking 1972-ish. Apparently everything concerning old tapes of P5 has been binned in Australia, but someone on a certain website that hosts old video clips claims to have 3 episodes on VHS. Here's hoping we may at least see something sometime. Yes it was wooden and cheap but certainly not nasty. On the face of it it looks like a carbon copy of Star Trek, but it had a better theme!! I too remember the heads that lit up when they talked...always taking the mickey out of the villain (Zodian?)

(Was the female presenter you mentioned Lyn Spencer???)
