I remember this as cracking kids tv but why can't it be shown again today?
14 September 2001 | by rwsharpSee all my reviews

I tried never to miss this - Barry Letts was quite a hero, and Cargill and an almost 'slitty-eyed' Harvey Hall were wonderfully hissable. Seeing the details again in IMDB make me wish tv channels would repeat some of the great series from decades ago instead the constant repeats we have to endure today.
