SFX magazine had an article about the best Sci-Fi/children shows of the 1980's, which was a trip down memory lane. Essentially the programmes where from the first half of the 1980's so there was a few there which didn't ring any bells....but who could forget Metal Mickey, the Adventure Game, Tripods or Chocky!!
Part two which is 1985-1989 is next month and I expect a mention about Moondial.
In the same mag there was an article about the possible Americanization of the excellent Life on Mars. BBC America have the rights to show the sci-fi cop drama, but it is also to receive a make over to better to appeal to US audiences. Could be interesting I guess but personally I think they're just jealous that they didn't come up with this corker themselves!
