Absolutely, Alan, and a good sense of humor helped form an interesting look at the page. Smile
This The Avengers wheel was really important there, since it was the main attribute of the site The Avengers Declassified, and it let to understand of the current way of your relationship with the Avengers.
Even more importantly, I think it also made sense of how deeply you were involved in the development of this page.

Wink Yes, dear fans, each picture element on the interview page is not just a decoration, but it's part of the overall theme.
We did it with Alan in the same manner in which worked, for instance, TV show "This is your life". I think that the decor here, like the cover for the book, stage props, and so on, because we wanted as close as possible to present result in a single composition for the people. Very Happy

Interview with Gabriel Hershman, Ian Hendry's biographer, on Steedumbrella.
Premiere: 29 November



Preview: Smile

A brief look at the current state of affairs:

Interview is in stage "post-production". Alan Hayes and I selected 36 Q&A for the final version on Steedumbrella.
Photographic material will include an interesting photo with Gabriel Hershman. Wink

Excerpt from an interview:

When quoted in later years, Patrick Macnee was often ambiguous on the topic of his favourite “Avengers” partners, so as not to denigrate any of his female colleagues. It served as a curiosity for many when Patrick called Ian Hendry his most favourite partner. I suppose they did have something magnetic together on screen. How do you view Ian and Patrick’s friendship and why was it so special?

It's interesting that Ian and Patrick got on so well. Their screen personas were quite different. Patrick was suave, sophisticated, debonair, smooth, elegant, dandy-like and upper-class. Ian - although similarly educated in the private sector in the UK - was more the rugged, streetwise, rough diamond type. But they complemented each other very well on screen. Off-screen, there was a lot of mutual ribbing and joshing but they clearly liked each other very much.

Ian and Patrick both liked Scotch. This apparently helped to cement the friendship! I think that Patrick respected Ian's contribution to the scripts and respected his creative input.

I wish I'd been able to interview Patrick for the book but I decided against approaching him on account of his advancing years.
I think that Patrick was not exactly angry but slightly irritated that Ian's contibution was often overlooked in discussions of “The Avengers”, so he liked to mention Ian's contribution whenever he got the chance to rectify this. It's fitting that Ian's last public appearance was on Patrick's “This is Your Life”, but Ian's appearance was rather fleeting compared to Patrick's other co-stars. This reveals how people somewhat undervalued Ian's contribution. I hope that this is now being rectified!!



November 29 - interesting pastime on Steedumbrella, we are waiting for you.
Alan, Chris & Denis

This is hilarious Denis!!!
You really have an incredible sense of humour! I have never seen any TA video of this professional quality. Having both music and cartoon captions with real dialogue one can imagine TA saying in jest is hilarious. I watched it several times it was so good! Keep up the good work! Wink Cool Laughing Laughing

Very pleased to hear this, Anti. Wink
In fact, this flash animation was made by Chris, webmaster of the site John Steed's flat, and there was only used a small piece of my idea for the plot. Well, just my script was not good enough and idea's Chris, posted on site, was more interesting.
My script was as follows (below is excerpt of draft script):

DRAFT SCRIPT FOR FLASH INTRO of web INTERVIEW-SERIES
Date: 24 October 2014

---
...Black screen. Phone call. Steed includes a table lamp and picks up the phone.
- Steed listening!
- Steed, are you still sleeping? Look what time it is!
- Still very early, Mrs. Peel.
- You've already gathered the guests?
- Almost!
- Steed, I'll be in the studio in an hour!
Steed hangs up and looks at the newspaper on the table that says "October 31 - Studio Guest: Gabriel Hershman."

Next, Steed in a hurry collects a large company, including Mrs. Gale, David Keel, ...
...
soon find themselves in the studio nearly the door with the inscription "Steedumbrella". They open the door and go in a completely dark room.
On a black screen appears dialogue
- Steed, we go in the right door?
- We still have 5 seconds until start, wait and find out.

On a black screen countdown
large numbers on the screen:
5
4
3
2
1

Then the screen shows the studio and in a large shot book about Ian Hendry. Under the book is inscription: Guest Gabriel Hershman.

Then the last frame:
To go to the interview, click on the english flag on the news page Steedumbrella.


Things have changed very much later. Very Happy
Firstly, there was made another animation variant Wink , but then we decided to postpone it for the next interview.
With regard to the curent variant, there was made about 10 variations with minor changes, and eventually the latter variant was obtained (SURPRISE) before half an hour before the scheduled premiere! Surprised
So I posted the flash intro almost at the last moment.

It was a great experience for me to do this interview and there were a lot of funny incidents in general, when we did it.
For example, there was a very funny moment, when I with Alan decides where to place the photo with Gabriel, under inscription "Gabriel Hershman" or above. Laughing But it was important, as we have thought through every detail. Wink So, at some point there was a moment of fatigue and I thought, need to remove photo with Gabriel, at all. Laughing But eventually Alan did a choice.. Very Happy

I think is probability that we use the draft of the script for one of the flash video in future. Wink
Glad that you found these stories rather clever and we'll sharpen others in this way. Smile
There were many memorable fun moments, such as for a banner, was very a lot of options as text will be placed in it and eventually we stopped at the first variant, at all. Very Happy

Special updating on Steedumbrella, dear fans - episode page "Too Many Christmas Trees". Very Happy



https://translate.google.ru/translate?sl=ru&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=ru&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fsteedumbrella.ru%2Fepisode_83.html&edit-text=

Original:

http://steedumbrella.ru/episode_83.html

A nice addition to the episode page was a review of Olga Svecharnik, who recently resumed its activities for the site and is now working to review the episode Death at Bargain Prices. Very Happy
Years ago I translated into English the review by Olga for the episode Joker, which turned quite thoughtful and interesting.

I want to believe that this Christmas was for many by Happy Day, and I wish nice memorable Boxing Day.

Thanks, Alan.

It is interesting that initially I had not planned to make the announcement to the page of this episode, because I was able to make very few new research, but in the end, when it became known that Olga will present a new review (oh, much time has passed since her last work for the site) I decided that I must do it.

How did you spend Christmas, Alan? Wink I guess it was a wonderful day.

The last meeting the fan-group Steedumbrella 7 May 2016

Though this meeting was actually rather as sort "banquet with friends" - we unwittingly plunged into nostalgic memories of the joint youth days, creativity, work and other memorable events - Aleksei Sidorov prepared huge surprise.
Aleksei took us to his private room, where from nightstand he pulled some black suitcase and leisurely began to open it. He winked mysteriously, that we have become intriguing to speculate that this might denote.
Suitcase was opened and our eyes seen a pile of various papers and a some magazine. Who would have thought - when I opened the magazine, there were records of Russian fan club participants in House Culture "Yauza" for a few dates since 2000. Shocked It turns Aleksei led a secret journal, in which he even wrote the phones of visitors of fan club in order to be able to contact them for further participation. Also we found unknown photos in the fan club, poster of fan club, rules of fan club, composed by Sergei Pronin and ONE unknown unfinished story from Aleksei about Steed (unfortunately Aleksei was unable to determine when he was written it - even approximately). I think if someone was shooting a scene with a suitase on a video camera - this would was sparkling comedy: Laughing as soon as it became aware of the content of the "bag", every one (except owner) attacked a valuable object and began almost to tear it apart by studying different papers. Laughing Aleksei soon abandoned the attempts to "pacify" the public and excited shouts, very possibly could be heard even in the street (all occurred near the balcony on the 4th floor).
Overall had a good holiday, Aleksei proposed to meet again in August and hold the event properly.
As for the Avengers, the event touched it only in the following:
1) There have been about twenty photos with a book Avengerworld in the home yard of Aleksei Sidorov. At the moment I have not received these photos. (main photographer Sergei still out Internet, and seems Moscow too)
2. Aleksei read the new chapter from the novel "Finger of fate".
3. Surprise in suitcase. (Greatly, that Aleksei let me take his unknown unfinished story about Steed in own archive - I should admit, this is only three pages of text, story titled "Night comes quickly". Steed is investigating in the English countryside. That the investigation - is unclear).
The End!!!
Think, I will to post the news on site, when photographic material from event will sent on email.

On moment, photos from other Aleksei - A. Arsentiev.





suitcase with surprise

Yes, it was a fun and memorable day, Margo, planned that next meeting will be in July. Wink Possibly Aleksei will prepare a few more pages for his last fanfic of Steed + we are going to do another photo shoot with the "Avengerworld". Smile Tomorrow courier should bring me the package - this will third copy of this book in Steedumbrella group. Smile If all goes well, in photo shoot will take part April Kane (founder of the group The Avengers in VK) and some other Russian fans, one who participated in the book, other who did organization for Moscow event - Series The Avengers (two episodes) on the big screen.
