There are lots of DVDs of the 'classic' series - 'Tomb of the Cybermen', 'Sontaran Experiment' and so on - on sale for $16.99 in my local 'Borders'. I assume they'll be the same price in other branches around Australia.
'Minotaur' in Melbourne is selling some for a similar price.
Here's a short, somewhat cynical look back at the space colony movement of the '70s (Gerard O'Neill et al). The article is illustrated by three 'artist's impressions' from 1976 - I know a few of you like that sort of artwork.

In 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', we see a triangular sleeve patch (with a circle in the middle) worn by the astronauts (aka 'pilgrims') and techs at Devil's Tower. Despite my best efforts with the 'pause' button, I still can't make out any details. Anyone got a good picture or...
So which one of you lot put this on YouTube? :lol:
Jimmy Radcliffe's marvellous song 'Long After Tonight Is All Over' is rather special to us Northern Soul afficionados. Hearing it in this touching tribute to Ms Bain and Mr Landau was a pleasant surprise...
This is, I think, my third post with a link to 'The Big Picture' at boston.com; they run some great stuff.
