The Champions Rewatch Sunday 4th April 9pm 'Happening'
littlesue
The Champions Episode 5. Happening on Talking Pictures 4th April at 9pm
Written by Brian Clemens and directed by good old Cyril!
Join One Spare Part, Ellen and me as we watch this episode which introduces us to one of the running themes in this series.
In a word BOMB. Not just any old bomb but a ‘clean’ atomic bomb! (Is there such a thing?)
Anyway, this is the Champions’ equivalent of the B7 episode ‘Countdown’ or even the Bond film ‘Goldfinger’.
And it is just brilliant!!!
One Spare Part will be pleased to know that this is Richard’s episode…and how.
Remember how a couple of weeks ago Craig was pushed out of a plane and landed in the Carri…the sea around Jamaica, well Richard falls (or was he pushed?) out of a helicopter and lands on Australia…ouch, He even leaves a dent in it!
It stars Michael Gough (Hower in B7’s Volcano) with a very dodgy behind the Iron Curtain accent, whose small behind The Iron Curtain country, wants to have a voice on the World stage. (We will meet quite a few of these small, behind the Iron Curtain countries, all with the same idea, as the series progresses).
But acting honours go to Jack MacGowran as the outback Aussie who declares that no-one blows a hole in Australia. He goes by the name of Banner B, Banner (his mum didn’t have much of an imagination he admits!!)
Mr Banner is a poet as well. He pens a nice little poem for Richard that seems to have slipped, unnoticed, under the gaze of the TV censors back then as well as Mrs Whitehouse. Considering this was shown back in 1969 on Saturday evening at 7pm (well it was on Southern TV) I’m surprised it made the final cut!!!
But for me, the star is the Set…Joe’s Place. The sign post that Richard finds declares that this establishment is nearer than the other destination…Sydney, which is many, many, miles away. You will see just how far it is when you get a geography lesson on the tablecloth in Joe’s Place!
We also have the soundstage filled with sand, another lovely painted scenic backdrop by good old AJ Van Montague and the stock film footage that tells us we are in the a desert region….sand and a large skull.
I’d better tell One Spare Part that Richard may need more than a plaster this week… a lot more!
PS. No snakes were harmed in the making of this episode...at least I don’t think so.
Lemon flavoured jelly anyone?
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I can't believe we are on episode 5 already. Time flies when you're enjoying yourself. Apart from it being a Richard episode, there are other reasons why I love this one. It's a great story to start with. Lots of humorous bits and is this the one where Sharron resuscitates Richard from afar using her special powers? Or is it done in one of the 'snow' episodes? Anyway, Aussie shenanigans are brilliant in this!

Just a reminder that One Spare Part, Ellen and me are rewatching the Champions tonight on Talking Pictures at 9pm.
It's the one set in Australia (with no Kangaroos in sight at all), but the map in Tremayne's office says so, so it must be true!
