Oct 9th 2016 Well announcements of discoveries all of this week by Kaleidoscope. Firstly starting with the “Avengers”, but followed with announcements of “Softly Softly”, “Dr Findley’s Case book”, “Harry Worth”, “Hugh and I” and “The World of Wooster” with more announcements to made by them over the next few days.

Oct 4th 2016 Incredible news today a believed missing Avengers episode has been recovered.

This is the first discovery of a missing episode from the series for 15 years. The last one having been the recovery of the opening act of Hot Snow and the complete episode Girl on the Trapeze, both of which were recovered from the UCLA in 2001. Fantastic news indeed.

January 8th 2016 Man from U.N.C.L.E. almost completely restructured which should mean this part of the site is now not only quicker to load but it should also be easier to find items.
January 3rd 2016 Some restructuring now means that the 1960’s Man from U.N.C.L.E movies have now got their own subsection. Improvements like this will hopefully make larger collections of specific TV shows like the Man from U.N.C.L.E easier to navigate around.

Items on display will eventually range from Adam Adamant Lives!, through to Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. It is still very much a work in progress, and only a very small fraction of the collection’s several thousand items is at present on this site. At the moment the priority is getting the collection up onto the site, so some descriptions are very basic or non-existent, over the coming months as and when time permits these will be improved upon.
