I would like to see this on tv. Heard about it when I was at uni from a science fiction/horror buff. The guy who wrote the play created the Quatermass character. It would probably come across as quite dated now but when it was first broadcast I should imagine it was an 'original' of the genre.
The 80's to me was the decade that taste forgot but I do have a liking for its TV. This movie comes from the time of Poland's rejection of the communist system dominated by the Soviets and, therefore, gives an (now historical) opinion of the times. Aired on early CH4. Or CH4 when it was good.
You're joking right? It was repeated ad infinitum in the early 80s.
One thing I'd like to see again is P'Tang Yang Kipperbang. Same timeframe, young kid had a crush on a girl, and was keen on cricket. John Arlott's voice commenting like it was a cricket match was very apt.
A couple of yankee ones worth a mention would be Lou Grant, the newspaper office drama. And Barny Miller, the cop show where the scene never left the police station. While I'm at it, another good yankee one was Hill Street Blues - "Be careful out there!"
Closer to home, the entire Grange Hill could be shown again.
But what should be shown again from the start, including the pilot, was the original Kung Fu with David Carradine. The series that started the martial arts craze over here, and spawned thousands of "Ahh, grasshopper!" inpersonations, and launched more merchandise than another TV show ever did. Today we would see it as very tame and slow moving, but back it it's day it took the nation by storm!
While I'm at it; just, What Happed to The Likely Lads?
Mind you, be careful what you wish for; Hitchikers guide To The Galaxy was made into a film ages after it was first broadcast - and it was crap.
