The opening titles music is part of Val Bennett's "The Russians are Coming" which is a variation on Dave Brubeck's "Take Five". The closing credits music is another part of the same track which contains the more recognisable melody and 5/4 rhythm of "Take Five". See more »
This was one of my favorite series. I love gadgets and it's fun to see where they came from and how they came about, especially the ones we pretty much take for granted each day. For example: the lowly vacuum cleaner. Certainly not glamorous, but what would our carpets and draperies look like without this device.
Although it hasn't been run in the US for decades, I think it's time for a re-run, as well as a production on DVD. Luckily, I was able to find about 10 of the episodes on youtube and I really enjoy watching them over and over with my family and friends.
Tim Hunkin and his associate, Rex are really fun, if not a little crazy the way they perform some of their demonstrations.
