When Gerry Anderson Met Ray Harryhausen

October 1995, London. Legendary filmmaker Ray Harryhausen had just been interviewed for the fledgling Sci-Fi Channel UK, when the next interviewee arrived.

Now, many years later, although these gentlemen are sadly no longer with us, we can all share the moment... Cameraman: Dave Hicks Sound: Mark Ayres Director: Kevin Jon Davies

More Than 30 Years Manopticon '94 Trail
 
02:34
Trailer made by Kevin Davies for showing at the 1994 Manopticon convention in Manchester. BBC Video were still pondering whether to go ahead with the VHS version of his BBC1 documentary "Doctor Who: Thirty Years In The Tardis". They arranged for a questionnaire to be distributed asking for opinions on the Doctor Who VHS range. The success of this and the trailer screening helped towards securing the eventual deal. The material here was culled from a mish-mash of sources, including timecoded VHS viewing tapes of rushes and other clips. Music by Mark Ayres. The documentary "More Than 30 Years in the Tardis" forms part of the BBC DVD release "The Legacy Collection" in January 2013. 23rd November 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the TV series.

Verity Lambert - in her own words...
 
10:10
Verity Lambert (1935 - 2007) was a trail-blazing and award-winning British TV and film producer. This selection of interview clips is taken from three sets of camera rushes, conducted in 1993 and 2006 by director Kevin Jon Davies. It was screened exclusively at Riverside Studios on Wednesday 23 July 2014, when the Doctor Who Appreciation Society unveiled a plaque dedicated in Verity's honour. Also appearing in this video is Carole Ann Ford, the actress who played Susan on Doctor Who and Verity's friend, the director Moira Armstrong. NB: In this video, Verity mentions her friends "falling out of Henneky's" to go home and watch her early Doctor Who episodes. Henneky's pub was a hotbed of hippies and counter-culture in the 60s and early 70s. It's now called the Earl of Lonsdale and is still situated on the corner of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove, West London.

Gerry Anderson and Terrahawks (TV-Am 1984)
 
02:11
An interview with Gerry Anderson and a small team of freelancers who happen to be fans, promoting the "Terrahawks" series and that weekend's convention, "Fanderson '84". Presenter Henry Kelly fumbles his way through, but you'd never guessed we'd rehearsed earlier, would you? He forgets the names, forgets the girls aren't wearing microphones and calls Lady Penelope "The Dame". And Anne Diamond such a fan as well...! The freelancer fans are: Terrahawks graphics designer Kevin (Jon) Davies (as Yung-Star) with his wife Elaine Davies as Cy-Star, plus sculptors Susan Moore (as Zelda) and Stephen Mansfield with a puppet they'd made of Gerry. The puppet Gerry was used in the spoof sketch "Gerryhawks", which is available elsewhere here on YouTube.

BBC TVC Quad Edit Machine Room 1981
 
03:27
During a 2" tape edit at TVC in January 1981, two young enthusiasts shot this behind-the-scenes footage on a portable JVC VHS system. I'm reliably informed the guy loading the tape is Ben Robinson. I think the editor is Ian Williams, can anyone please confirm this? NB: This was part of my "Making of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" material which didn't make it into the final cut of the documentary released on BBC VHS in 1993 (and later as an extra on the BBC DVD of the series). Most of the nerdy tech questions here are from my pal David Beasley (who some years later earned a PhD in Artificial Intelligence).

Douglas Adams' digitally illustrated coffee table size version of his famous novel (art directed by Kevin Jon Davies) gets a good review by James Whale on ITV's "You're Booked!" upon publication in September 1994. Whale struggles with pronunciation of Zaphod Beeblebrox and mentions the proposed movie, but it was another 11 years before that reached fruition, by which time Douglas Adams had sadly passed away. "You're Booked!" was a Mike Mansfield production, the guy behind 70s music show "Supersonic!" and many a pop video.

Scouse Con One on Look North West, 1982
 
05:44
Years before the word 'Cosplay' came into being, a previous generation was dressing up for SF conventions. Here, on Nationwide's 'Look North West' (a local early evening news programme) is Scousecon '82 organiser Roy Evans with his pals, plugging their big event. Friday 12 Feb 1982. (Can you name any of the other participants? There's George Barnes in the space armour, Martin ______ as Zaphod, Stephanie_____ as the Princess and *who* are all the others...?) Some of the outfits seen here were on loan from the touring Theatre Clwyd stage show of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy', including the silver 'Marvin' costume, seen in the opening and closing moments. Author Anne MacCaffrey was Guest Of Honour that weekend in Liverpool, and one of the animators from 'The Hitchhiker's Guide' BBC TV series, Kevin Davies, gave an illustrated talk. The hostess with the mostest was the delectable Anne Page. The event was a huge success, with a spectacular pyrotechnic gun fight in the middle of the fancy dress parade when Space Pirates from "The 42nd" raided the event. More video of that to follow, when I have the time... KJD PS - this is a camera copy shot off a TV screen in the hotel at the convention that Friday evening, so long ago. That's also why it sounds a bit 'roomy'.

Towards Tomorrow was a monthly BBC programme designed for the serious, detailed study of aspects of science and sociology.

The documentaries included Roy Battersby's Assault On Life (debunking the horrors of the DNA 'secret of life'). People Like Us (examining brutal methods of psychiatry) and Adrian Malone's A Plague On Your Children (on the development of chemical and biological weapons in Britain). Thanks to "Westengland" of The Mausoleum Club for the above info. (See: http://www.mausoleumclubforum.org.uk/xmb/viewthread.php?tid=19890&page=2) The music is by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Ridiculous peak in our fancy dress party nonsense of the very early 1990s. I spent all week building this silly mini-ED 209 (quickly dubbed Ed 2.9) costume out of a big block of polystyrene and various plastic buckets, then arrived *well after midnight* to the new year's eve party at David Graham Hicks's place. After challenging Stephen Mansfield's (amazing) Joker, I fell asleep within about 20 minutes. What a waste of time! Stephen later apparently staggered home drunk, still wearing his Joker prosthetic make-up. We were never quite that ambitious again, thankfully. :)
