Did you notice the flash, only if you have the Emma Peel set of course?

Sorry - I was watching the series 1&2 Optimum sets. Didn't notice anything like that....

That's okay this was on the AE 17th disc! Network also have lots of these flashes on their discs! Does it prove what an amateur operation they are considering how they let these clunkers through without checking their produce?

There are a lot of flashes and distortions on the original master tapes as the process of playing in FX or film inserts created distortion. Some of the early DVD releases cut these 'bad' bits out completely, resulting in shorter episode durations.

Yes, there are a few errors on the original 1960s telerecordings producing "artefacts" like wobbly picture and sound after cuts or ad breaks. I'd rather have these in (especially as sometimes there are spoken lines during them) than cut out like the Contender/Kult TV releases. Optimum/Canal+ did a good job overall though I know some of the later filmed episodes still have minor issues like tops and tails of some scenes in the monochrome Peels being missing.

I would concur...it all boils down to the source material, what kind of shape, how it was used/transfered etc...

I had a feeling she'd get to the Avengers once I saw that she'd started on The Prisoner.

She's been enjoying the Keel episodes.

Yes, but there was a year's gap between Medusa's viewings of Hot Snow and Girl on the Trapeze!! Someone sent her Tunnel of Fear, and she's now done The Frighteners, so hopefully she will keep the pace up.

Yes indeed she enjoyed them, and she is not averse to Big Finish so quite likely to try those out. I'm glad someone enjoys the Keels because they are a lot of fun, and however creaky the production is to modern eyes, the actors are very good. (It will also prepare her for the, albeit slightly slicker, seasons 2 and 3).

Tunnel of Fear is especially inventive and Anthony Bate gives the kind of realistic, honest performance that doesn't date. Hugely underrated actor. I hope she likes that one.
