I think the changes are slim.
There was something 10 years ago, I think, put up by an actor's school or so.

A nice evening of Avengers television, on let's say BBC Four would be ideal to commemorate and honour the show.

A couple of episodes from various series (Peel colour / Gale /Peel monochrome / Tara / TNA), a documentary on the Avengers and things like The Strange Case... etcetera between. Hot Snow (what remains) at 22:00 60 years exactly after the first broadcast and ending the night with the film.

At the moment the streaming service Brtibox has all of series 4,5 and 6 as "exclusives" so I presume a TV showing is not possible while that deal is in place.

So, what will everyone do?

We could watch some episodes from each series and comment on them afresh?

I seem to have remembered that event. Did anyone in the forum, attend it ?

Would be great if something similar for the 60th...took place...

I wish footage of the event were available to view as I'd like to see many of the interviews.

I did my degree at Chichester University - or West Sussex Institute of Higher Education as it was when I went there in the 90s.

I lived in Chi for another 22 years after that, and when that event was on I lived a stones throw away from my old uni.

I wa so excited at the prospect of going to that event - I've never been that near before to an event like that which I've wanted to attend.

However, when I saw the price of the tickets, and just for one day, I honestly couldn't justify the expense. I was gutted.

The local Newpark Road cinema in Chi did a screaning of 2 episodes - both penned I believe by Roger Marshall, who I believe was there and took questions from the audience. I attended that. And even though they showed them straight from the DVDs which I already had, it was exciting to be with other fans.

I think we are going to have to do our own thing for the 60th as the mere mention of The Avenges now conjures up capes and superheroes, not bowlers, brollies and leather boots....

My experience was exactly the same Lee. I have lived within 15 miles of Chichester all my life and studied and worked there. I would dearly loved to have gone and thought hard about it, but with a young family to support the price was unjustifiable for me at the time.

I was at that showing at New Park Road Cinema too, which was some compensation. Yes, Roger Marshall was there and answered questions in the auditorium and then adjourned to the cafe afterwards where he was happy to carry on discussing. Great memories but I'm really sad to have missed the main event. It can never be repeated.

How exciting to find someone who went to the same event!

Wished I'd known Roger was staying afterwards. Sounds like a pint and a chat would have gone down well.

There is a topic about the event here...

The Avengers - A 50th Anniversary Celebration

Sadly some of the pictures are now missing and the original blog posts have all gone but interesting reading anyway.

I've trawled my backups but I can't find a mention of the cost, I'm sure someone who went will know. I have turned up a couple of screenshots from the live coverage that BBC South did at the time...



(what are those colours?? Smile )

Myself, huge Honor fan...even dating back to some of her Lp's that were released in the U.S. ('65)..She had a quick wit, and had the impish look in her eyes..her description of Connery ( ' all man ' ) from Goldfinger, was a hoot.

she was a pistol....

She was wonderful. The last time I saw her was on "Celebrity Antiques Road Trip" which is very popular but I think she was in their first episode which shows she was still a huge audience draw, and she was full of humour and with that sexiest-ever voice. I adore her.

I wouldn't swear to it because it has been ten years now, but I think it was about 110 a day. May be the second day was a little cheaper, but I might be imagining that.

I do remember thinking that I couldn't justify the amount, even though it was something I was desperate to do.
