A nice little bonus feature on the two disc blu ray set of "Filmed in Supermarionation" by Network is an episode of the BBC science and new tech programme "Tomorrows World" from September 1968.

Featured is the use of "video assist" on the 1969 film "Doppelgänger", Captain Scarlet (or perhaps Joe 90) and series 6 of The Avengers. Video assist enabled directors to see what was being filmed by a film camera on a video monitor "live".

The segment is included mostly for the Supermarionation content but it has a rare behind the scenes clip from the Avengers in very high quality. I'd never seen this before.

Interestingly as Tomorrow's World was a BBC show the two ITV shows are not mentioned by name.

Hi Paul,

I mentioned this fact before here and no-one took a blind bit of notice. Smile
