Lucky, lucky people who get to go to this. At least there's actually an effort to celebrate the milestone, though.

The event is open to overseas fans and I'm hoping that annoucing it this early means some will be able to attend.

This is on the Site of the university:

http://www.chiuni.ac.uk/services/news/newsarticle.cfm?articleId=1019


TV Producer of the Avengers and Professionals to give talk at the University of Chichester

Brian Clemens, an established producer, writer and director will be discussing his long and illustrious career as part of a series of talks at the University of Chichester on Wednesday, 11th November 2009.

Brian was pivotal in the huge success of the 1960s iconic spy series, The Avengers, for which he acted as associate producer and main scriptwriter and it has remained the highest rated show to come to America. Starring Patrick MacNee and various female partners played first by Honor Blackman, then Diana Rigg and later Linda Thorson, The Avengers is seen as the television equivalent of The Beatles in terms of its influence upon 1960s programming.

In the 1970s he teamed up with fellow producer Albert Fennell and Avengers musician Laurie Johnson in setting up the UK's first independent television company and from which two further successes would emerge: The New Avengers (making a star of Joanna Lumley) and The Professionals with Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw.

Besides writing for many other popular television series (including Danger Man, The Champions, The Persuaders, Thriller, Bergerac, Perry Mason, and Remington Steele), Brian has also written screenplays for a number of feature films including: Dr Jeckyll and Sister Hyde, Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (which he also directed), The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, The Watcher in the Woods, and Highlander II: The Quickening".

Adam Locks, Senior Media Lecturer at the University, said: “This is the first in a series of talks by key figures from the small screen and cinema. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students as well as members of the community who are interested in TV and film to gain a unique and personal insight in to the industry.”

[b]There are a limited number of places available for members of the public who might like to attend the talk so to book your seat please contact a.locks@chi.ac.uk or telephone 01243 816190.

The event will take place in the Mitre Lecture Theatre, Bishop Otter Campus, College Lane, Chichester on 11th November 5.00-7.00pm.[/b]

I know, they should have an event in The U.S. Believe me that would be great and save alot of time. Fortunatly I have a friend in London and I can get a Train down to Chichester. I am surprised Diana Rigg is not going to be there as she usually does a play once a year there for The Festivel. I will still be happy with Cyd Child as she looks exactly like her. Very Happy Too bad they can't book Diana Rigg Crying or Very sad

I'm still thinking about this, I don't mind paying £150 for the weekend but was suprised it didn't include autographs and that only some of the guests would be signing. I've saved up a lot of money for this but by the time I've booked accomadation, train fares plus money for food, that would be topping £300+ before I even think about autographs Sad
Any idea how much autographs will be?
And who is likely to be signing?
