[UK] Heads up. TV programme on Airfix Friday 7pm.

She was so cool; both Steed and Mrs. Peel could save the world without getting their clothes wrinkled or their hair mussed. ;-)

I'd like the Assassination Bureau version of her (and IIRC, Claudia Cardinale?) in one short scene, both getting dressed for dinner and in black lingerie, stockings and suspenders/garterbelt.
C'mon Airfix. Forget the BBC faffing about and go after other characters.

I have the movie on VHS tape; that was indeed quite the scene:

other woman was Anabella Incontrera. In fact there are several women running around in the movie barely clothed and the movie itself is very funny and clever. For Mrs. Peel looking really scandalous, check her out in the Avengers episode "A Touch Of Brimstone" about the Hellfire Club:

not only shocked Steed, it got the episode banned from early releases in the U.S. Even the BBC drew the line about the time she put down the snake and got her whip out. :-D

Checkout "Soft Beds, Hard Battles" for a lot more of that stuff:

Splitting hairs here but The Avengers was never a BBC programme.

It was a consortium of regional TV companies led by Lew Grade which pooled their resources at weekends so as to produce bigger and better shows than any of them could do individually.

I was certainly doing a nice run on BBC4 earlier this year and somehow ended on the the last Mrs. Peel (other insignificant woman passing on stairs episode.)

What is it? I don't download anything without knowing what it is. Do you?

I think the hint is in the title of each file just after the 8 digit folder numbers. Also there is another clue in the Subject header.
I've just downloaded, unzipped and watched part of the programme in AVI format so I suspect that's what it is! ;-)

It was 'Money Programme' that set me wondering, regardless of what came afterwards. ;-)

It's one of those few financial programmes that does not make me fall asleep as soon as the old buzz words come falling out of the sky.

Interestingly, the show was aired on ABC network here in its first run. In this case it meant American Broadcasting Company.

Hey don't knock it. Whenever I can't sleep I switch to a BBC business report and I'm out cold within 20 mins! :o)

Maybe they should just get Bobcat Goldthwaite to do a series.
