Pulp & Politics: Blake’s 7

Today I’m taking you on a field trip to the north and west of Italy, made possible by a friend and fellow blogger— Davide Mana is our host.

Apparently you had to be in Britannia between 1978 and 1981, or you missed the whole thing. So bring along a device that is YouTube capable. If your ears are as bad as mine you might also pack a voice-captioning device that mishears words as often as I do. Allow me to share one word match in the dictionary-database — the verb “trump” rendered as the (proper?) noun “Trump.”

Please bring your hands (or tentacle equivalent) together and welcome the guy who makes this all possible. Join me in welcoming Dr. Mana!

The joys of Youtube.
I’ve spent the last few nights watching old episodes of the BBC’s Blake’s 7, a space opera series that aired between 1978 and 1981, and that was never distributed in my country.
And I must say I’m positively impressed.

Because it’s an old show, and produced on a very short and frail shoestring budget, but what the heck, it’s good fun and great storytelling.
