    Don't Panic! The Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy is a classic British television series from the early 1980s, starting out as a BBC Radio series of six episodes which grew to twelve episodes, then five best-selling books and a hugely successful TV series (this one). Finally, a feature film appeared in 2005. The creator, the late Douglas Adams, had been a script editor on Doctor Who and he once said the idea for the show came to him while he was lying drunk in a field near Innsbruck. Quirky British humour runs through all formats of the Guide, but what sets this version apart from the others of is the animated graphics created by Rod Lord – unlike anything seen on British TV until then. They inspired the animation in a TVO educational series called Landscape of Geometry (1983). The show won several awards, including BAFTA Awards in 1982 for Best Graphics (Rod Lord), and Best Sound Supervisor (Michael McCarthy), as well as an RTS Television Award 1982 for Most Original Programme.moreless

    The staid, faded elegance of a gentleman's club was the setting for this sitcom from Richard Gordon, creator of the Doctor series of novels, films and TV series. The fictitious Albany club, situated off Pall Mall, 'up steps worn by five generations of gentlemanly leather', was based upon various actual clubs and shared some of the problems of the real-life establishments: lack of funds, grumbling members and a decaying building. A male preserve, the Albany deigned to doff its top hat towards the fairer sex, with mixed 'dinner evenings' (albeit with the ladies segregated in their own dining chamber) and female employees. But this last, progressive move—brought in only after a woman was appointed Prime Minister—continued to raise the hackles of some of the older members, who hadn't absolutely forgiven womankind since Suffragettes smashed the club's windows in 1908.moreless
