Fantastic set of mug shots!

I actually had no idea (poss. Avengers girl) Nyree Dawn Porter had been in an Avengers episode. Nor Keith Barron (years before his Target! New Avengers ep.)

*blush* thanks everyone, it's nice to know one's efforts aren't in vain.

I have recaptured lots of images for all the seasons and, once I've finished giving all the episodes a decent description rather than just a precis, I'll update the props department. It's been languishing sadly for years.



I love this site! Thanks so much for all your efforts! It's wonderful work!

Breaking news on the site! http://www.dissolute.com.au/avweb/new.html

1 April 2010
...
Elsewhere, I've uncovered evidence that some of Season 1 was sold to the Australian ABC network - click to see the article, screened with the first run of Season 2. So, there's a chance, if slender, that copies of these 'lost' episodes exist in an archive in Artarmon, here in Sydney! More news as it comes to hand...

Thanks Dissolute!

I love the newspaper clip on your site that says:-

Patrick Macnee is in real life a swashbuckling Englishman

I bet Patrick loved that! Laughing

And that bit was real, straight out of 1960s journalist school! I'll publish the real article tomorrow.

The real article is now there:
http://www.dissolute.com.au/avweb/avengers-real.jpg

Apologies to Frankymole, the time difference between Sydney and wherever the forum is hosted (United States somewhere?) meant the date was listed as 31 March, I added the local time, but he responded before I'd done so.

I didn't realise Australia still used pounds in the 60s! Now it's dollars isn't it? I wonder why it changed?

Australia decimalised on 14 February 1966:
http://www.australianstamp.com/Coin-Web/aust/decimal.htm

Our smallest coin now is the 5c piece, but you don't see them often. 10c pieces are most likely to be someone's smallest coin now. The 1 & 2 cent coins are no longer legal tender.

We have coins for 5, 10, 20, 50 cents, plus $1 and $2.
Notes are $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100.

What a crazy idea , s, d was when you think about it. The Aussies came to their senses about five years before the Brits.

Whenever I hear about decimalisation, I always think of one of the footnotes in Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens.

Quote:
NOTE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND AMERICANS:
One shilling = Five Pee. It helps to understand the antique finances of the Witchfinder Army if you know the original British monetary system:

Two Farthings = One Ha'penny. Two Ha'penny = One Penny. Three Pennies = A Thrupenny Bit. Two Thrupences = A Sixpence. Two Sixpence = One Shilling, or Bob. Two Bob = A Florin. One Florin and One Sixpence = Half a Crown. Four Half Crowns = Ten Bob Note. Two Ten Bob Note = One Pound (or 240 pennies). One Pound and One Shilling = One Guinea.

The British resisted decimalized currency for a long time because they thought it was too complicated.

Do you have your Head of State on the obverse of the coins? Very Happy

Speaking as an ex-pat, yes, we have Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse of the coins.

The most recent update of the art came in the early 2000s, I believe.

Dissolute,

If you are still checking in, I'm recent to the Forum, but found your website utterly excellent! I've been spending too much time there, reading your lovely little descriptions and enjoying the props of the shows. Thank You for your commitment to such fascinating details!

Oh yes, I check in when I can. Alan and Jaz are very good to me... it's them we should thank for the continued growth of my site.
I need to rush oput and buy Season 3 now, as I've *just* finished Season 2.
So much more material from one release!

...and your website has been exceptionally helpful in researching for the reconstructions, Piers. Happy to help out where I can.

That's hilarious, Dandy! Writing so those "down under" can read it!
