Cowart's Common Room
Forgotten Films, Books, TV . . .

Firstly thank you for the emails and PM's . . . HS and I were busy preparing for a Craft Fair at the end of last week - then at the Craft Fair in Glasgow Saturday and Sunday, followed by clearing up from the Fair and now we are preparing for a big Fair in Edinburgh . . . so if I am quiet . . . it isn't you it's me Laughing

Back to today's question . . . is there a film, book, TV programme that has vanished in the mists of time, but was a favourite of yours ie Doomwatch with the then young and gorgeous Robert Powell.

Anyone remember another TV programme around the same time - three lead characters . . . one with super hearing, one amazing sight and one something else . . . what was it called anyone remember - the TV series . . . not the super power . .

AND does anyone remember the cartoon Rex the Runt . . . loved it . . . where did it go.

So what was your favourite Film, TV Book and if you can't remember what it was called describe it and see if we can guess.

Faith's Avatar There was some children's programme about horses.... was lovely..... but thats all I rememberEmbarassed And Skippy.... and what was the name of the Dolphin? Oh and I love Barrier Reef - or it was called something like that.

Faith, do you mean White Horses? I loved that, and the theme song. Skippy the Bush Kangaroo! I'd love that as my ringtone. and Flipper was probably the dolphin.

Patsy's Avatar Did you mean The Champions WW? A favourite series of mine too when I was a little girl. I always thought that the actress Alexandra Bastedo was so beautiful. You probably know she runs an animal sanctuary in Sussex and writes a regular blog. Uploaded Image

Faith and Celtic Heart, I discovered that the White Horses theme tune is downloadable from the Horse and Hound site. Now where is my technogeek son to help me do that? Rolling Eyes
