Rewatch - Sapphire & Steel and Space:1999
Travisina
Just tagging on to add my tuppence-worth about the making of TV series:
When I joined the industry in the dim and distant 1980s, studios would make programmes that they would then broadcast either locally or across the network. So for example, Granada (whom I worked for) would make local arts programmes that would be broadcast only in the Granada region (North West England) and 'Sherlock Holmes' which would be broadcast UK-wide across the whole ITV network. There was greater kudos attached to working on network shows, and it was part of your career path to begin on little local programmes and work your way up to the network dramas and documentaries and higher still to the co-productions with American companies like WGBH Boston.

Then everything changed, and kind of collapsed in on itself, the studio system imploded and got rid of most of their staff and now it's independent companies that make the shows and the studios just broadcast them. For several years I worked for the company Shine and each of their shows was broadcast by a different channel - Merlin (BBC), Sinchronicity (BBC2) and Sugar Rush (Channel 4).

I'll let you get back to your rewatch now...

Okay, I think the B7 theme is way better, at least.

I wouldn't have minded seeing a Granada regional show. It's the little things like that that help me learn about other cultures.

If I recall right, companies like Granada had saved some of the smaller independent film studios that had previously not been linked directly to television when they failed in the 70s?

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

That was pretty neat! I'll have to check out more of this, although B7 remains my favorite.
