Re: 1974 TV REPORT

it is frustrating looking for old TV programmes - I've spent ages looking for certain Clarets games (BBC and ITV) .. a 1970's schools programme by Granada called History Around You and a BBC version of the Tenant of Wildfell Hall that my Mrs appeared in ... no luck at all

Straight line play Steve .. they glide quite easily over a decent distance without too much effort ... very well balanced and the bases don't have the imperfections that often characterize the originals

Very nice figures and to be honest they play better than the originals in some respects
