Just thought of another BBC drama production that I can remember watching back in 1998. It was called Heaven and Earth starring Neil Pearson from the cop drama series Between the Lines. As far as I can remember the story centred around a religious community and the main character, played Pearson, going to this religious community as a retreat to get away from the families past troubles. However, as time passes and Richard's influence with the community grows, his plans change. After Richard apparently has a vision from God he is elected leader when Isaac dies. From then on Richard's power grows and his fanatical domination of the community knows no bounds and he starts to think of himself as God. He becomes highly evil and almost demonic. I can't remember what happend towards the end of the story, but it was fairly well acted and certainly created some great atmosphere as the story developed.

There was a fantastic documentary series a good number of years back (possibly 80s) produced by the BBC, repeated possibly a decade ago called The RKO story, which was, quite obviously about RKO. It was such a wonderful series, and happened a lot of interviews with stars of the golden era of Hollywood many of whom are now dead. I think it was 4 parts in total, I found it oddly relaxing as well as interesting. I'd love to see this released but I doubt it ever will be.

Other than that Jonny Briggs I'd love to see, I know this was rather popular at the time. I usually create an accurate reproduction of the theme tune (which is a famous piece in its own right but I can't blooming remember the name) using only my mouth and the usual suspects, vocal chords, cheeks, etc. when a work colleague, or anyone, is about to get into trouble. Usually followed by "Our Ritas gonna kill us" I can't even remember if that is uttered but it's stuck in my head

That and Geordie Racer which was for Look and Read possibly? I'd love to see on dvd. There something called Look and Read wasn't there? or am I just very tired?

Now this is another well known but never released as far as I can tell, one of my favourite shows as a kid, Pigeon Street, I just loved it.

"This 12-disc set includes 60 episodes, featuring classics from The Sweeney, Upstairs Downstairs and The Avengers - as well as incredible rarities from the Associated Rediffusion archive: No Hiding Place, Mystery Bag, Crane and Our Man at St. Mark’s.

Since the summer of 1955, the ITV network has entertained the nation with some of the most memorable programming ever created for British television. This collection celebrates those six decades with an outstanding, specially selected collection of superb dramas, hilarious comedies and thought-provoking documentaries – some of which haven't been seen since their original transmission.

With each disc themed to provide an "evening's entertainment", this dip into the archives provides a trip down Memory Lane as well as a timely reminder of some of the best television of the last sixty years.

A mixture of both classics and rarities (including some programmes thought lost forever), this set contains previously unreleased episodes of Crossroads, Rainbow, Tiswas, Coronation Street, World in Action, The Bill and Whicker's World – together with some exceptionally rare items from the Associated Rediffusion archive: No Hiding Place, Mystery Bag, Crane and Our Man at St. Mark's.

So spoil yourself – settle down for a great night in and join us for a journey through the decades!
