|Sites of Distinction|
|The Gerry Anderson Complete Comic History
Quite possibly the most thorough examination of a spin-off product yet to be seen on the web. The site covers comic strips based on all of the Gerry Anderson puppet series and live action dramas, from TV Comic and the groundbreaking TV21 in the 1960s through to TV Action and Look In during the 1970s. Related annuals and more recent efforts also get covered.
Essential site for anyone in the UK who wants to keep up to date with news of forthcoming DVD releases. The site is also the home to Roobarb's DVD Forum where all the latest releases are torn to pieces or praised to the roof!
Episode lists for just about every series you can think of.
Episode lists and in-depth guides for many series. Useful for keeping up to date with the latest episodes from the United States. It's probably best to disable images, animations and Flash before using the site though...
|General TV Sites|
As well as featuring news on the latest releases, it also contains links to nearly 1000 Cult TV sites. Other useful features enable you to search for TV Themes and the lyrics to theme songs.
Great site for tracking down those half-forgotten TV memories. Features brief overviews of just about every programme you can think of including dramas, comedies and obscure children's programmes. A great first-stop site to get the basics.
Television Heaven / Teletronic
Two linked sites which add up to a top-notch reference source. The former has information on hundreds upon hundreds of individual television programmes, while the latter goes for the more in-depth approach, detailing the evolution of television as a medium as well as taking a more leisurely look at a number of individual programmes. Teletronic also includes interviews, quizzes and biographies of some of the UK's most famous television contributors.
An unusual site but one which is endlessly fascinating, dealing with all things televisual that aren't actual programme content. In short, television presentation, continuity pieces, trailers, and title sequences. Ideal for anyone in search of a quick nostalgia fix.
Fantastic site which delves way back into the mists of time and takes a look at the television programmes of the 1950s, when black and white were still exciting new colours. Programmes covered range from Quatermass and Whacko! through to Watch with Mother and the numerous westerns which filled the schedules. The pages are liberally illustrated with photographs, so if you want to find out who played Worzel Gummidge twenty-six years before Jon Pertwee, this is the site to check out.
|Michael J. Bird Tribute Site
Website devoted to the works of Michael J Bird. Television series he created include The Lotus Eaters, The Aphrodite Inheritance and The Dark Side of the Sun. Great reference site for some undervalued series.
