Big Train - absolutely brilliant! Many of the stars went on to bigger and better things, including Simon Pegg.....

The History Man c1980 ... was on late at night, don't remember the plot much but I do recall that to my teenage self it was wanking gold.

It was brilliant, Friday evenings BBC2. I’m reading the novel.

A parody of an early 70’s uni sociology lecturer who talked a very left wing game, but his real interest was screwing every female in sight and gossip/internal politics.

A Charlie Brooker masterpiece, featuring a few surprises amongst the cast (e.g. Benedict Cumberbatch).

Hilarious, but also incredibly prescient

The Adventure Game. Cheapo sets, and they had to cross this space bridge at the end and avoid the invisible (to them) vortex thingy.

If you’re talking about the original, the best looker in that was Carolyn Seymour (I think she was called) she was also the stripper that married Harold Steptoe in the movie version but then went off with (and I quote) “old oily”
