The Tomorrow People File...



I've been busy whipping up a little something else today for all you TP purists, included with the strips I was given, were various features from the Annuals and Summer Extras, and nearly every cover that the TP's appeared on.

I have been scanning today and added the remaining missing covers, and all the interviews that appeared in Look-in itself.  the result is the 'Tomorrow People Look-in file', I think just about everything that ever appeared in Look-in about them is here, If I've missed anything let me know.


Also if anyone is interested in the 'It's Flintlock!' strip let me know too, I have a few of those.

The file is quite big so be patient...enjoy.

Pointless Celebrities - Look-in style...

I was watching 'Pointless Celebrities' before on BBC1, they were doing a 70's special, and one of the pairings included none other than Stewpot!...Ed Stewart.  When he is on things like this, he is always associated with 'Crackerjack' but never seems to mention the other big part of his life in the 70's - Look-in of course. It was great to see him looking so chipper for his advancing years, Ed is 73 a week Wednesday, so Happy Birthday Ed!  Partnering Ed was Sally James of 'Tiswas' fame, which had a Look-in feature - 'Tiswas on Two' in 1980 and another pairing tonight were, Sally Thomsett, who played Jo in 'Man About the House', and Anna Karen - Olive from 'On the Buses', both of course were strips in Look-in.

If you missed the programme, you can catch up on BBC iPlayer here.

Tomorrow People...Stories 29 and 30...

Four more after this, then onto the Summer Extra's...

Tomorrow People..Stories 25 and 26...

Here are the next two, and they include the one you've all been waiting for...!!!  That's right, it's the infamous 'Manga the Mighty' drawn by Bill Titcombe.  Bill was more famous for drawing comedy strips for Look-in but presumably, because they were a couple artists down for a few weeks, he was drafted in to draw this episode.  His artwork made the ridiculous storyline (not Angus' finest hour either), even more funny.  Nothing against Bill if he's looking in (geddit?), I did enjoy his comedy stuff...
