Television in the 60s became smart and sexy, just like the music and the fashions. And British TV was the smartest and the sexiest, with series like Danger Man, The Prisoner and The Avengers. And TV discovered science fiction, with Dr Who and, and of the course the fantastic Supermarionation shows like UFO, Stingray, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. The 70s brought a new edginess to British TV, with spy series like Callan, cop shows like The Sweeney, and sci-fi like Blakes 7and Space: 1999. But the smartness and sexiness remained. American TV also produced some memorable and offbeat programs – like The Wild Wild West, I Spy and of course The Man from UNCLE.
If you love these programs, then the place you need to be is the Cult TV Lounge.
