Cult TV On Your Radio on hiatus

It is with regret that we announce that after just two episodes of its new series, CULT TV ON YOUR RADIO has had to go on hiatus, as the producers seek a new outlet to broadcast the programme from. Hosts alex:g and Justin Allum had brought the show back via Tulip – The Station You Can Really Call Your Own – for the new series, broadcasting fortnightly on Tuesdays from 7.00pm to 9.00pm GMT. It was just about to move to a weekly slot of Thursdays 7-9pm when disaster struck.

You were able, if based in the Spalding and South Holland area of the UK to hear the broadcasts on 107.5 FM, or alternatively from anywhere in the world via the TUNE IN website and App. Unfortunately, the previous management of the station decided to take the entire station off-air, including our programme which was all about extraordinary fictional television and movies being previewed and reviewed.

All is not lost, as the two shows which were recorded are preserved for posterity. You can find the podcast of the first edition, which includes the announcement of the winners of the CULT TV AWARDS 2016, on MIXCLOUD BY CLICKING HERE. The second show contained information on the new series of 24, the revival of Twin Peaks, and also when some of your favourite shows will be starting their runs again in the UK. You can listen to it on MIXCLOUD BY CLICKING HERE.

All Star Comedy Carnival on DVD

All Star Comedy Carnival 1972 and 1973 make it to a DVD releaseAll Star Comedy Carnival was an annual television event which ran for five years from 1969. It was ITV's annual ‘Christmas bonus’, screened at the height of the festive season, usually on Christmas Day, presenting viewers with brand-new sketches from the network’s most popular sitcoms of that particular year. A highlight of the festive viewing period, only two editions still exist in their entirety - those for 1972 and 1973.

This new DVD from Network Releasing presents both these complete shows, comprising specially written sketches for 13 classic series, and running without adverts for about an hour and a half each – and rest assured you get the advert break cards and jingles included!  Most of these components were extended sketches based in the comedy and variety formats they showcased, a lot of them operating within the confines of a single studio-based set.

Magnum PI - The Complete Collection now available on UK Blu-rayTom Selleck will forever be known as Magnum PI, a Vietnam veteran who leaves the Navy to take up position as a private eye and security adviser to famous author Robin Masters, never seen but heard on occasion and voiced in the main by the iconic Orson Welles.

The Incredible Hulk TV on Blu-ray

The Incredible Hilk - The Complete Collection out now on UK Blu-rayThe Incredible Hulk - The Complete Collection consists of all 82 original episodes from the five seasons of the show (two of them feature-length) and a wave of bonus material which puts the adventures into context. Indeed, creator Kenneth Johnson’s audio commentaries are some of the best single-person narratives that you will ever hear. He describes how he took the comic book out of the comic character, bringing forth a series which appealed as much to women as men. The episode prints are fully restored and high definition in this 16-disc Blu-ray set.

After being exposed to gamma radiation, mild-mannered research scientist David Banner (Bill Bixby) finds extreme anger or stress transforms him into the terrifying and enraged Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). This format draws inspiration from a trio of works from classic literature. Original creator Stan Lee notes the transformed Hulk was inspired by Frankenstein’s monster, while the alter ego of Dr Banner came from Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Kenneth Johnson added the element of news hack Jack McGee (Jack Colvin) pursuing the creature. It chimed with iconic 1960s series The Fugitive with its stories of a man forever on the run.

Ironside Seasons 3&4 on UK DVD

Ironside - Season 3 on UK DVD - Season 4 also now availableIn August 2015, the first two seasons of Ironside were releases in the UK by Fabulous Films. You can read our review of that release by CLICKING HERE. Now, 15 months later, we get Seasons Three and Four to savour. Our wheelchair-bound former Chief of Police, Robert T Ironside (Raymond Burr) is back with more insightful detective work, and these seasons mark the final ones for one of the quartet of key players – the female lead Barbara Anderson as Eve Whitfield, finishing her 105 of the 199 total episodes, landing an Emmy for her role in 1968.

We get 26 episodes on each season box set this time out, season three having originally aired Stateside from September 1969 to April 1970, and season four from September 1970 to April 1971. Again there are plenty of guest stars to look out for, whose faces will be familiar to many a Cult TV appreciator. The victim of a failed assassination attempt, Ironside was left paralysed from the waist down. He became the head of his own special police unit, aided by a crack team of investigators on the streets of San Francisco, including Sergeant Ed Brown (Don Galloway), and ex-con-turned-assistant Mark Sanger (Don Mitchell).

Tim Vine all Tim Timinee on DVD

Tim Vine - new Tim Timinee DVD now availableIf one-line puns machine-gunned at you are your thing, then time to make an appointment to watch as award-winning British comedian Tim Vine, in a new show where he emerges from a chimney to take the roof off (it says here…). If Dick van Dyke was a stand-up, and from this side of the Atlantic, well, it’s nothing like that at all!  “Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim to You” is the latest mix-and-mirth from a man who breaks up the unyielding procession of off-the-wall corner-turning rat-a-tat spiel with silly songs, and one prop after another with a slick and simple pay-off.

This was a sell-out show which took Tim around the country and beyond. Take a deep breath everyone, because there’s a lot to get through. Stand by for a large number of stupid jokes, (and platypuses on poles, plus an interloper). Packed with a range of extras, this is the full-on exposure of the concept, and a breathless experience – if you don’t like one particular joke, another will be along before you have chance to blink, let alone frown.

Spike Milligan Q5-Q6-Q7 on DVD

Spike Milligan - episode of Q series finally come to DVD completeThere’s a reason that Spike Milligan’s TV shows from the late 1960s onwards have faded away from memory. On one level it can be put down to a lack of repeats, but the truth is based on their effective ‘blacklisting’, all down to one social factor which has scared people into silence. Political correctness. Seeing the shows Q5, Q6 and Q7 finally getting a DVD release is symptomatic of the fightback going on across the world at the moment. People are sick to death of being told what views they cannot hold, what language they can and cannot use, and instead being expected to go along with social restrictions which make it nigh-on illegal to have targets for humour.

Milligan adopts equal opportunities on many such targets for his off-the-wall stream-of-consciousness humour. Every religion, race, and political allegiance is verbally machine-gunned. The stupidity of belief systems and cultural actions are exposed to the spotlights which reveal the nature of divide-and-rule that such codes of conduct allow to grow. But the Social Justice Warriors will just focus in on the use of terms which, in this day and age, have been abolished. In effect, in the 21st Century the Q series has suddenly become the tool of revolution. And so it is that this new release from Simply Media allows us to take a snapshot of how sensibilities have changed from those of 1969, 1975 and 1978 respectively.
