Shared on Twitter by "John Steed" - what appears to be French News footage of Patrick Macnee, Joanna Lumley and Gareth Hunt filming the two part story "K is for Kill" in France.

always love it with footages like this surface....it fairly good shape, despite the wash out chroma, and at the time, was certainly big news...I'm wondering if the story about Patrick and Linda doing a beverage commercial in France, was the intent that gave birth to the New Avengers ?

Thanks Darren. It's always great to see something 'new'. I was impressed with Patrick's French!

It's quite a rarity - for a long time people thought it didn't really exist!

no matter ..if it was a print ad, or ' commercial '..the problem with TNA, was funding. the show really didn't seem to have the monetary backing, required to produce a first rate production
