All 47 colour episodes of the classic television adventure drama, comprising the fifth and sixth series. Roger Moore stars as Simon Templar, aka ‘The Saint’. A suave and sophisticated conman, Templar only steals from rich criminals and helps the forces of law by making sure they’re thrown behind bars. For Chief Inspector Teal (Ivor Dean) however, Templar is nothing more than a common crook, and one he’d like to see behind bars himself!

Feature-length documentary about the long-running 1960s and ’70s ITV action series ‘The Saint’ and its follow-up series ‘Return of the Saint’. The film, which features interviews with contributors including Roger Moore, Ian Ogilvy, Robert S. Baker, Johnny Goodman and Patricia Charteris, covers the full story of how Simon Templar came to the small screen in the early 1960s, its evolution into colour and the revamping and reformatting of the show to fit the shifting trends of a late 1970s audience.
Gerry Anderson, the hugely influential creator of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet, made a spectacular return to puppet animation in the early 1980s with an exciting new series produced with Christopher Burr. Thrilling yet another generation of children (and adults!), Terrahawks introduced a new elite force to defend 21st-century Earth against a host of alien invaders.
Led by the heroic Tiger Ninestein, the Terrahawks crew consists of Captain Mary Falconer, Tiger’s second-in-command; fi ghter-pilot and pop star Kate Kestrel; the poetically inclined Lt Hiro; and Lt Hawkeye the gunner with computer-enhanced vision. Assisted by a legion of charismatic spherical robots known as the Zeroids, they battle a cabal of evil adversaries none more terrifying than android crone Zelda, the would-be conqueror of all “Earth-Scum”!
