Default Unexpected Find

Sorting through my old TV21s last night I came across this from my schooldays:








Just thought I'd share it with you.

Great stuff, thanks! I have no idea what Read is, was it a national publication or your school paper?

If my memory of forty years ago serves me right it was a national publication distributed through junior schools.
There was another one too called Everyweek. That was generally much better and more technology orientated. The one copy that I found last night had no GA related content though.

Just read the crossword puzzle. Images of Father Ted explaining to Dougal the concept of 'Near' & 'Far Away' with a plastic cow spring to mind...

Thanks for posting this Spiffer. It reminds me of a publication that was issued through our school system when I was young called 'The Weekly Reader.' Great Stuff!

Nice scans, Spiffer. Very interesting. I remember an article in the "Childrens Newspaper" when I was at school, that reported on a visit by then popular bandleader Edmundo Ross and his two young children to the set of "Fireball XL5". I saw some B+W photos of this recently and remembered it like it was yesterday.
