Thunderbirds Are GO!

Another cult TV show advert crossover today as we take a look at this Exchange & Mart commercial from 1988 that for some reason has a Thunderbirds theme. Not sure why this crossover happened, was this around the time that Thunderbirds had become popular again? I’m not sure but it’s a fun watch anyway and it’s always good to have Gerry Anderson‘s creations on screen whatever the reason, enjoy!

The Avengers of Amplex

Here’s a recent VHS find, a vintage TV advert from 1988 for the Amplex breath freshener range that for some reason is based around the 1960s adventure series The Avengers. Not sure what the link is between the two but it’s a fun, although brief, watch!

Network 7 – Channel 4

Network 7, or Network Seven as the actual logo spells it, was a short lived but fairly groundbreaking TV show from Channel 4 that aired for two seasons in 1987 & 1988. I remember this show very fondly mostly because for the first time there was actually something interesting to watch on TV during Sunday daytime!

Last year I found two blank tapes on ebay and the picture shows the labels saying they had Network 7 episodes on them, so I took the chance and won the tapes, hoping that what was written on them was what was actually on the tapes. We got lucky and the tapes were what they said they were, two complete episodes of the show from 1988! Those tapes have now reached the top of the To Upload pile and I added them to our YouTube channel this week. These two episodes come from towards the end of the second season, by that time all the presenters I remember seem to have moved on, but these are still two fun shows and reminded me of how far ahead of it’s time the show seemed even then. Enjoy these two complete shows below:

Network 7 – full episode from Sunday 18th September 1988

BRONSON Vs The Golem

So here’s the final of our three unproduced Cannon films teaser trailers and we’ve saved the best till last. Check out what could have been something very special, Charles Bronson would have starred in this supernatural detective thriller that had the amazing working title of BRONSON! An eagle eyed YouTube user pointed us in the direction of this great article over at Dread Central that spills the beans on what this film actually was, take a read of it here!
