Almost certainly on DVD. It's not going to be the sort of thing ITV wants people to see. 8-)

As far as Crossroads goes ITV really don't give a hoot. They certainly aren't looking after the episodes in their archive properly. It appears episodes are still going missing. Someone from CAS was doing some research and asked for some footage from a mid-1980's episode....ITV can't find it. :o


What else do you expect from such a shoddy channel like ITV? Awful channel probably always has been as well. Never ever watch a film on ITV you get adverts every five minutes and on one of their channels a celebrity update midway through the film. Do you know they even cut films after the watershed?

The material was known about for some time, except for the colour footage recovered on an old tape. It was found too late for the Network releases and then got mislaid. :shock: It was found again though so that was nice.

I watched that Endeavour thing for the first time last night and Morse did indeed turn up at the Crossroads motel, where there was a Jill and a Mrs. T (Amy Turtle?) in attendance...

I vaguely recall my mother watching this in the afternoons. I think Channel 7 from memory.

I don't know why she watched it because she used to complain how rubbish it was all the time.

So bad it's good, that type of thing?

We used to watch it but all I can remember is the theme tune and Benny.

My mum used to stick it on for us to watch whilst cooking the tea and getting ready for work. I mostly remember it for the theme tune and Benny too, oh and that chap in a wheelchair Sandy(?)

Ooh yes, I'd forgotten Sandy!

Worryingly, it's all starting to flood back...!
