Freecycle

Is there any way of using Freecycle that doesn't involve signing up to Yahoo Groups? I REALLY don't want a few hundred thousand more spammers getting my email address again...
Space Patrol

Dee dee dee dum... dee dee dee dum... dooby doo wah wah...

Got home to find that the Space Patrol DVDs had arrived. I was a little worried that they wouldn't include the interviews that are on the tapes, but in fact you get a lot more:
  • 39 episodes of the series
  • "Sara and Hoppity" episode (a program I haven't seen in 40-odd years but I can still remember the theme song)
  • Roberta Leigh interview
  • National Interest Pictures brochure
  • "The Adventures of Twizzle" episode (another program that I still vaguely remember)
  • Arthur Provis interview
  • Dick Vosborough interview
  • "Mr Hero" pilot (don't remember this one)
  • Joe-Michael Straczynski interview (yes, he's a fan)
  • Commercial break bumpers(?)
  • "Paul Starr" pilot (no idea)
  • Andy Partridge interview
  • "Send for Dithers" episode (no idea)
  • "Wonder Boy and Tiger" episode (ditto)
  • "The Solarnauts" pilot (ditto)

Looks like some fun viewing ahead.
