Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
I first saw this in Argentina in 1984, and watched every episode of it and loved it. Of course it was dubbed into Argentinian Spanish and the title of the series was different, I can't even now remember it. But what always remained on my memory was the image of Nobody pulling his tie to disappear every time he didn't want to be seen by the adults.
Then a few years ago just by pure chance I found the series on IMDb. I can't remember how I actually came across it since I didn't have a clue as to the series' original title or the names in the cast. Anyway, I found it and I began to do a thorough research, and discovered that the first two episodes were posted in YouTube. Watching them again after nearly thirty years was an unforgettable experience.
Every time I have been out buying DVDs I have looked for this one, but never found it here in London. It seems it hasn't come out yet, and it is a shame, because I have the entire original series of "The Tomorrow People" and also "Children of the Stones". The 1970s were with no doubt the best era for children's series on British TV.
