As a Christmas present for all of you, this video which I guess is very very rare. It was filmed at the Avengers Lumiere Home Video Launch Party in the early nineties. You can see Patrick Macnee, Honor Blackman, Linda Thorson but also people like Richard Bates. It's not much but I thought you might like it.

Neat! Honor looks lovely. Diana was at the launch, too. I wonder where she is?

Thanks for posting that.

I remember reading from someone who attended the event said Diana looked as though she'd rather not be there. Note: I do not have a source for this, it's just something I remember reading somewhere.

Perhaps she left after the photo shoot and the media had left.

Possibly. Diana would be most likely to duck out early. Too bad. It would have been fun to see some candid shots of her as well.

Yes it's a shame, I would've loved to see some shots of Diana too.
Dandy's story sounds quite likely, but I guess we'll never know for sure..

Indeed. and something (again, I must have read it) about Diana very nearly didn't attend at all, but was in the area and didn't have a ready excuse so felt obliged to go.

It's the only time she made it to an Avengers event of this kind. She didn't even go to the Baftas when she shared an award with the other Avenger ladies. Linda had the "happy excuse" of being in Califonia, working but we never heard why Diana couldn't make it.

I read, I believe, from The Avengers and Me that Diana was doing Medea on stage at the West End at the time so she had to make a quick appearance(probably as a favor to Patrick)at the launch party.

Because Sendspace deletes files after a few months, some of you might have missed the opportunity to download this. If there is any interest in this, please post saying so here in this thread and I will re-upload it, so you can download it.

It downloaded fine for me, thanks I missed this originally.

I spotted:

stage Avengers Simon Oates walking in at the beginning with Sue Lloyd (Linda does a high pitched "Sue!!!".

Leonard White is there chatting to two men.

Cyd Childs.

Fenella Fielding standing with an actor I think is called Roland Curram (who was in fated BBC soap opera Eldorado)

Honor mentions Judy Parfitt when talking to Richard Bates.

Actor Nickolas Grace is standing with Honor Blackman - I think they're long time good friends (he was never in the Avengers).

I think I saw the back of Roger Marshall's head (Rodney would be able to confirm if he was there).

Thanks for re-activating the link. This is the first time I've seen it! Didn't Linda look like the Belle of the Ball! Very Happy

Linda Thorson looked smashing! Ever-beautiful Honor Blackman looked to be having fun. Patrick, of course. And Fenella Fielding from "The Charmers", looking as charming as ever. Wish Diana was present.

Showing the flag for Canada, Barry Morse was there looking a lot fitter than I expected.

Diana popped in and out so quickly that a lot of people missed her. Just enough time for a few press photos and the BSkyB report - as a favour to Pat it is said.

I can also hear a low droning sound in the background that could well be me!
